JD Roth is a man on a mission: to make people happier and healthier. Over the last decade, he's committed himself to not only helping people live fuller lives through dramatic weight loss ... and keeping the rest of us thoroughly entertained while doing it.
Roth is the former executive producer of popular weight loss shows Extreme Weight Loss and The Biggest Loser which have helped thousands (possibly millions) of people lose weight. And on June 11th, he and his award-winning production company, 3 Ball Entertainment, bring a brand-new unscripted original show to Z Living called The Big Fat Truth, based on his book of the same name. It's a show all about helping people tackle their weight loss and health goals, for life. Find out where to watch The Big Fat Truth near you.
The Big Fat Truth airs Sundays at 8 pm ET on Z Living, beginning June 11. Catch a sneak peek here of the premiere episode below:
You don't have to wait to for the show to premiere to start taking advantage of the wealth of health and wellness knowledge that Roth offers. In his book, The Big Fat Truth
, he dives deep into eating better, losing weight, and living a fuller life.
Here's the lowdown: While every fat person (yes, “fat person” – there's no sugarcoating in this book) knows that shedding pounds comes from moving more and eating less, that doesn’t begin to get to the root of problem. What makes someone top out at 500 pounds or more – or even carry an extra 20, 30 or 50 pounds – is on the inside
“Why haven’t you lost weight yet? Please tell me you have a reason. It can’t just be that you are hungry. No one is that hungry. You’re willing to get to the bottom of a carton of ice cream, but are you willing to get to the bottom of why you are overeating? If you’re ever going to transform your body, you need to be,” Roth says in the book’s introduction.
He's already been featured in an article on Cosmopolitan
, sat down with Adam Carolla on his podcast
, hosted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit
, and in the coming weeks will be appearing on Sirius XM Radio with Just Jenny,
The Real, Extra and much more.
Where does he get the energy? We'll do our best to keep up with him - better start eating our veggies - and bring you even more from this one-man health powerhouse.
