I love this part of the article:
"Does this seem insane?" Vaught wants to know.

Well, that depends on what you mean by "insane." Doctors, certainly, would call it inadvisable. A seriously overweight person embarking on any kind of strenuous physical activity could dangerously stress his joints and heart, said Samuel Klein, director of the Center for Human Nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis.


Yup...strenuous physical activity could dangerously stress his joints and heart. Of course, just being that heavy stresses your joints and heart, as well as increasing your risk of diabetes, etc. etc. etc. so it's probably something of a wash. Oh...and the strenuous physical activity...it just might also result in some weight loss.

It's crazy, but sounds like he's determined to make a change for the better. I hope he reaches his goals. :-)
