How Did Jackson Galaxy Lose Weight?

Galaxy endured a lifetime battle with his weight.  He finally tipped the scales at over 400 pounds and began to suffer serious health problems.

This was the turning point in his battle.

In 2007, fearing for his life, Galaxy had gastric-bypass surgery.  He lost weight (150 pounds) pretty quickly and gave up other bad habits including smoking.

But like it so often does, the weight he had lost began to find him again.  He soon found himself over 300 pounds.

He finally got back on track when he met his future wife in 2014.

She convinced him to start making lifestyle changes and not surprisingly, he began to lose weight and this time, keep it off.  The most important thing he did was adopt her eating style; vegan.jackson galaxy wedding
