While on the road, he doesn’t give too much to his eating habits. But in only one year with this new diet routine he lost 65 pounds.
The main focus was dedication and fruits and vegetables. After working as a truck driver for 21 years, he decided he needed change.
Every day he drives 14 hours. And this made him realize he had no choice but to change something.
While the miles increased, the number on the weighing scale increased as well. Usually when he stops, he stops near fast foods, a food typical for all drivers and with no time for the gym or exercise, his lifestyle caught up with him.
Anderson made a decision that this lifestyle need to be changed. And the result was the loss of 65 pound weight.
