Finding Ultra is Rich Roll's incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever. One evening in 2006, before turning 40, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly 50 pounds overweight at the time and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he plunged into a new way of eating that made processed foods off-limits and prioritized plant nutrition and daily training. Rich morphed - in mere months - from out-of-shape midlifer to endurance machine. Revised and updated edition with a new and original foreword and a bonus chapter.

The story in this book is fascinating. The first half is a train wreck that I couldn't look away from. It was heartbreaking to think that it is a true story.

But the story of Rich's eventual overcoming of his demons, to become the athlete that he is is truly inspiring.

I ended the book wondering what I need to do to overcome my own demons and set my own life goals.

Thanks, Rich for sharing this story. I never heard of you before the universe told me I needed to download this book (It was the reason I signed up to Audible). But now I'll be checking out your podcast and see what else you have to offer.

Cheers.
