Tim and Heather Kaufman after competing in a race

Tim Kaufman

Tim Kaufman of FatManRants was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) in his early 20s and spent most of his life in chronic pain. By age 37, he was addicted to fentanyl, alcohol, and fast food. At over 400 pounds he was unable to perform simple daily tasks. He faced multiple chronic health issues, had lost his interest in life, and had almost given up. Tim started a journey to regain his health, making one small change at a time. Today he is an athlete who thrives on a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle. He’s healthy, happy, active, and productive—without all the medications he used to take. Tim has appeared on podcasts from around the world and has been featured by Runners World magazine, Good Morning America, Today, People, WebMd, ESPN, and many other media outlets. He uses his platform as an international speaker to educate and motivate people regarding plant-based nutrition, fitness, addiction recovery, overcoming physical challenges, and emotional and spiritual wellness. Read his original Forks Over Knives Success Story here.
