Rich Roll’s Life Overhaul: Overcoming an Addiction, Losing 50 Pounds and Becoming a Wellness Advocate
Founder of None to Run
January 24, 2023
I have been listening to Rich Roll's podcast for over 2 years. Rich joked in our chat that I probably know him better than his parents. His podcast has had a huge impact on the way I approach eating and fitness. And I think you'll also find his story and approach helpful for your own life.
Rich is a 47-year old, accomplished vegan ultra-endurance athlete and former entertainment attorney turned full-time wellness & plant-based nutrition advocate.
He's also a motivational speaker, husband, father of 4 kids and inspiration to people worldwide as a transformative example of courageous and healthy living.

After swimming for Stanford in college, Rich struggled with addictions to drugs and alcohol. He eventually ended up in rehab at the age of 31. Although he became sober, his health still suffered.
Rich gained 50 pounds and found himself out of breath climbing the stairs in his house. And that and when his life changed for good.
