Lori and Ed Olson are a fit Utah family who together have dropped hundreds of pounds and kept it off. The two joined visited "The PLACE" to share their weight loss journey.

It took Lori two years to lose 150 pounds and she maintained weight loss for three years.  Ed lost 140 pounds in about eighteen months and has maintained as well. Ed and Lori follow a plant-based way of eating; lots of fresh veggies, fruit, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds. In the beginning, the couple ate lean animal protein, but lost taste for meat and replaced animal products with tofu, soy/wheat protein products and almond/soy milk. Lori trades off between walking outside and working out 6 days a week.
