Robert Costa Weight Loss

Robert woke up one day and realized he was gaining too much weight. He, therefore, decided to stop eating junk food. Costa was taking a walk each day and black coffee with no sugar or cream and later upgraded to taking the first diet and second exercise on his campaign diet of ten years.

His most controversial work is arguably his very public battle with obesity where he lost a lot of weight while appearing on TV shows and documentaries. In the quest for fitness and weight loss, Costa became one of the most controversial figures in modern, non-traditional media, as well as one of the most beloved celebrities in America.

His weight loss ideal began way back in 1986 when he established himself as a serious weight loss and fitness advocate. Costa first tried out a number of different diets, which resulted in failure. He thereafter decided to get inspired by the true story of a man who had lost weight through a strict diet plan and then maintained it for the rest of his life.

Impressively, after Costa adopted this system and created his own junk food diet plan he became a celebrity for his great Robert Costa weight loss program. He has spoken extensively about his journey in his best-selling book – Lose Weight For Life.
