of Sick to Fit
Plus all the reader bonuses, and an invitation to the private Sick to Fit proprietary social network (no creepy Facebook surveillance!)
Josh LaJaunie is a self-described “WHO DAT” (Saints' fan) and plant-based ultra-runner from Thibodaux, Louisiana. Josh's story is a powerful “excuse breaker” – if you think you can't because of what life has thrown at you, read Josh's story to discover what's truly possible.
Josh grew up in a large family of large people, and as a football lineman, he was encouraged to get as big as he could. After dropping out of college following a back injury, Josh returned home to a life of excessive eating and drinking and partying and ballooned to somewhere north of 420 pounds by 2011.
Less than three years later, he was running marathons, advocating for a whole food, plant-based diet, and getting noticed by some of the most influential people in the field of health and fitness (Rich Roll and Garth Davis, MD, among others).
Josh won the coveted Runner's World Cover Search contest in 2016, and then started getting calls from national media. He's been featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show, People Magazine, Great Day Houston, and The Hallmark Family Channel.
Josh's mission is to share the simple power of healthy lifestyle, especially with his Coonass family, friends, and community in the bayou of southeast Louisiana. His family is on board – his mother, brother, sister, brother-in-law, and grandfather lost over 900 pounds combined.
You can read his story in Sick to Fit, and “study” with him at Sick to Fit University (STFU), and get instructed and inspired at our Sick to Fit retreats.
