Thursday on DDP Radio: When You Gain It All Back – And More
9 p.m. EST Thursday
(347) 994-1216

At age 17, Dylan James was on top of the world: He was at goal weight after dropping 100 pounds through YRG and healthy eating, had just become a certified YRG instructor, and was about to realize his lifelong dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Then life intervened in the form of emotional gravity: The deaths of two close family members sent him into a tailspin and he slowly began turning to food again for comfort.

“I also felt I could eat whatever I wanted because I was at my goal weight,” he recalled. “And that I didn’t have to work out as hard.” As the weight came back on, Dylan began distancing himself from his circle of support in the YRG community. Before he knew it the weight plus about 20 pounds more was back on.

A lot of us have been there, including me. I regained 100 pounds twice and can tell you from personal experience, it’s a feeling of discouragement and despair like no other. But it is surmountable. And that’s what Dylan realized three weeks ago when he reconnected with DDP and asked for help.

Thursday on DDP Radio, hear special guest Dylan James talk about what he learned from the past year and how he’s handling the road ahead of him. The topic for each show is just a means to get the ball rolling. DDP created the show as a forum for sharing questions, concerns, and triumphs that are part of the path to better health. It’s a journey that never ends, which is why a supportive community is a crucial part of the process. You can even post questions in advance of the show on the blog section at , (if you’re already a member) or during the show in the chat room at DDP Radio .

DDP begins each show with an update about what’s new with him, whether it’s wrestling news, his latest acting project, the My Picky Eaters line of gluten-free sweets. The bulk of the broadcast is devoted to DDP’s role as game-changer…and that’s why he created DDP Radio – to help everyone out there who wants it to OWN YOUR LIFE.

Doug Steffen and I will co-host with DDP. Doug and I are Team YRG members who have dropped more than 100 pounds through YRG, clean eating, and a positive attitude. For more information, visit . To listen to the show Thursday, visit DDP Radio or call (347) 994-1216.
