Chuck Carroll is a reporter for News Radio 99.1, but more importantly he’s also an advocate for healthy living.

Chuck co-hosted a radio show with former Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker where he was billed “The Weight Loss Champion.”

Health and Weight Loss

At just 5 feet 6 inches tall, he weighed 420 pounds before making the decision to radically change his life.

Chuck, a native of Norfolk, Va., underwent gastric bypass surgery on Sept. 1, 2009 and never looked back.

Although critical, the surgery proved only to be the first step in his journey. Chuck shed 250 pounds without ever setting foot inside a gym.

He became a student of nutrition and health and is a living testimony that there is a difference between dieting and changing your diet.

In the years since the surgery, Chuck has changed virtually every aspect of his life and prides himself on keeping the weight off.

He is driven to pay forward what he has learned and once shared his story on Capitol Hill.

Chuck is also a former member of the Pro Football Writers of America, a decade-long veteran of radio, and pro wrestling aficionado.
