The power of saying no: Amazing Loser Josh Deegan

Don’t Stop Movin’: Amazing Loser Dave Oh

When you’re overweight, being active can feel like the very last thing you want to do. Being sedentary is so much more appealing when you’re out of breath and red-faced even climbing the stairs.

Nil-by-mouth: Amazing Loser Chris Dixon

This week’s Amazing Loser Chris realized that his excess weight was down to an insatiable appetite for food: he was literally addicted and it was making him miserable.
