Saving Shmulik: A Weight Loss Marathon
About This Show
Saving Shmulik follows the journey of Shmulik Swartz, who lives in Israel and weighs 332 pounds, as he attempts to lose weight through a healthy plant-based diet, so he can continue his work rescuing and training dogs to help some very special people.
This weight loss journey has a twist. Eric and Shmulik have signed up to run the Jerusalem Marathon on March 17, 2017. It's an ambitious goal, and there's much to be done between now and the marathon.
Follow along on Shmulik's journey and learn how to create your own healthy life through a plant-based diet.
