Chuck Carroll, the Weight Loss Champion, joins us today! Chuck truly has an incredible story to share with you all. He once weighed 420 pounds and ultimately went on to lose 280 pounds! He attributes much of his success to the adoption of a whole food, plant-based diet. Chuck then went on to pursue his dreams. You may know him now as the host of the iconic Exam Room Podcast!
