'St. Louis' Weight Loss Guru' Charles D'Angelo On Losing Weight And Healthy Living

Jan 2, 2013

Resolutions are a ubiquitous part of the ‘New Year’ and losing weight and adopting a healthier lifestyle are some of the most common.

Host Don Marsh talked with “St. Louis weight loss guru” Charles D’Angelo.  He is the author of “Think and Grow Thin.”

“I could have been the king of excuses,” said D’Angelo, who as a high school junior, weighed 360 pounds.  He decided that he needed to change his life and in two years, lost 160 pounds.

D’Angelo has also helped others lose weight.  His methods are endorsed by former President Bill Clinton, and he’s helped U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill and Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan lose dozens of pounds.

“It’s not some magical diet that is the answer,” said D’Angelo.  “It’s a three-legged stool of healthy eating, consistent exercise and the right mindset.”

Don Marsh also spoke with three people who have gone through D’Angelo’s program: Father Ted Vitali, Allan Finnegan and Stacey Crancer.
