Josh LaJaunie is an unabashed WhoDat, a certified Cajun, and a plant based running advocate. He grew up on, and still lives on the banks of Bayou Lafourche in Thibodaux, LA. There, they “live to eat,” yet, ironically, they, he has realized as he has embarked on his transformation journey, are doing the opposite. They are dying at an alarming rate due to what they eat. Heart disease alone is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths per year in Louisiana, and, he now realizes he was well his way to a probable similar fate at a fairly young age. He found himself weighing 400 lbs by the time he was in his early 30s. However, in the past few years he has lost over 200 lbs and has turned the tide on his health trajectory via the power of eating plants and running miles.
