#60: Josh LaJaunie — Losing Over 200 Pounds and Becoming a Vegan Ultrarunner

Spread the love

This week’s episode is for everyone who feel stuck in life. Maybe you’re adrift without hope. Or maybe you’re a dreamer who thinks your big goal is utterly impossible.

Josh Lajaunie is here to tell you that anything’s possible and by changing to a mindset of self love you can get yourself unstuck from any situation.

It’s a great episode!

A few years ago I listened to Josh on the absolutely fantastic Rich Roll Podcast. If you haven’t heard Josh’s story, buckle up, it’s a good one! Living in small town Louisiana, Josh found himself incrementally gaining weight as life went on, eventually rocking the scales at over 400 pounds. He realized that he needed to make a change. Over a few years of being conscious of his diet and nutrition, he eventually settled onto a vegan diet. At the same time he started moving his body “like a human is supposed to” and began challenging himself to long distance running.
Flash forward to today and Josh has dropped 200 pounds (….You read that correctly….TWO HUNDRED!) and has transformed into one of the most inspiring plant-based ultra-endurance athletes on the planet.

In this episode, Josh shares his life philosophies and chats with me about what he’s learned through his journey.
I really expect the way he presents himself as a real person accomplishing nothing more than any of us could accomplish with the right kind of mindset and nutrition.

He’s an awesome dude and I promise that you will find some amazing takeaways from listening to Josh!

Huge shout out to Dr. Kasey Johnson from the Unlock Wellness Podcast for connecting me to Josh. Definitely go check out their episode together to dig deeper into his story!
