      • Could afford to lose 50 or more 
    • Ate like a teenager, wasn't really exercising
  • He played a lot of golf when he started to lose weight
    • the walking helps, but drinking beer and eating hot dogs doesn't
  • Exercise is a poor way to lose weight 
  • CJ tried out the raw food diet
    • Vegan by nature
    • Tried it to lose weight 
    • Didn't cheat for about 6 weeks
    • Realized how incredibly unsustainable it was
  • Even in ultra events, there is so much sugar being consumed
    • People still have fat around the middle
    • And, they poop their pants during the races
    • CJ found this trickling sugar thing did not help him lose weight 
      • He was a middle of the packer
      • Would have 12 bottles of gatorade over a 6 hour bike ride
        • STRAIGHT sugar
