This summer, I lost four bowling balls. And a half.

Eat to Live

The average bowling ball weighs 12-13 pounds. This summer, with the help of Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat To Live, I've lost 57 pounds -- or about four and half bowling balls.

Can you imagine carrying four bowling balls around with you all day -- from the moment you wake up until you get back into bed? I can and I did. I've still got a long way to go, but I'm celebrating those four bowling balls. And a half.
