Joshua Weissman

Author Real Food Blogger

My name is Joshua Weissman. I was born and raised in California and I currently live in Texas. As this may come as a shock to some of you I am currently 16 17 18 19 years old. I love my family more than anything in the world. And if it wasn’t for the constant love and support of my amazing parents I would not be where I am today and wouldn’t have been able to do what I did. Ever since I was a little kid I have had an immense passion for cooking. Sadly, as I got older my health began to decline and I began to have serious problems including being incredibly over weight but my love for food remained persistent and strong. I struggled and toiled with my problems and got constantly ridiculed and made fun of because of the weight. I was bullied, shunned from groups and a lot of the times physically harassed.

Eventually I came to the point where I simply had dealt with it enough. I was simply fed up with the ridicule, feeling sick, and unattractive. So I began eating healthy and learning more and more about health and started re-exploring my love for food. So yes you can be a food lover and still eat mindfully healthy. After a grueling and back breaking year and a half I managed to lose over 100 pounds. (Before and after photos here)  Now at the age of 19 I am healthy, fit, happy, and still have a love for food strong enough to part the seas. So please stick around and be ready to have some fun. I’m really excited to see what people have to say so don’t be afraid to post comments and email me if you have any questions, comments or even arguments!
