Our Editor's Take

The Ranting Weight Watcher is a supportive podcast for those who are navigating weight loss. Host Donato Russo shares his quest for mental, physical, and spiritual health. He is open and honest about his journey, sharing every failure and success. Donato started the show in 2020. He decided the best topic to focus on was the one he had struggled with throughout his life.

In 2004, podcast host Donato weighed 460 pounds. He could hardly move and wasn't living life as he knew a 26-year-old should. At that point, Donato decided to have gastric bypass surgery. Experts told him that surgery was a tool to become healthy, but it wasn't a solution. Donato would remember this advice later.

The initial success of his surgery brought with it a social life and the chance to start dating his future wife. As Donato grew more confident, he started gaining weight. In 2019, he stood on the scale and discovered he weighed 395 pounds again at age 41. He felt so disgusted by himself that he returned to WeightWatchers. This podcast shares everything he's learned throughout his journey.

Each podcast episode explores a different weight loss topic. Donato starts with an update on his journey and reveals his latest weigh-in results. He talks about his latest strategies, such as reducing his carbohydrate intake. Donato evaluates which phase he is in and where there might be room for improvement.

Throughout the series, Donato addresses various weight loss challenges. He talks about food guilt and the way he overcomes feelings of temptation. Donato discusses approaching milestones and how to reintroduce foods he removed from his diet. In one episode, he describes a moment where he needs to try on a suit and is looking at himself in the mirror. Can he see the success he has achieved in his reflection? These accounts of daily challenges make this weight loss podcast relatable.

The Ranting Weight Watcher podcast documents one man's real-life weight loss journey. Donato shares every moment of his story, from weekly statistics to new challenges. New podcast episodes premiere each week.

Todays Topic Special Guest: Christine Hronec, Food Scientist, Nutrition Expert, and Author Christine Hronec is an author, engineer, nutrition scientist, and bikini fitness competitor. Holding a B.S and M.S. in Chemical and Biological Engineering from Drexel University. Christine got her start at Fortune 100 Company DuPont as a Chemical engineer for six years. After more than a decade of experience as an engineer in research, development and manufacturing, Christine leaped into entrepreneurship and founded a cGMP FDA-registered dietary supplement manufacturing facility. Once she crossed over into the world of sports nutrition, she combined her areas of expertise and founded Gauge Girl Training in 2013, an international online meal planning and coaching service. In addition, Christine is the owner and founder of Gauge Life, an all-natural dietary supplement brand established in 2019.  Through years of coaching (helped approximately 50,000 women transform their bodies and switch to a body-positive self-image) and research, Christine has discovered the key to fat loss is eating the optimum ratio of macronutrients—protein, carbohydrates, and fat—for your body. Also, there is no golden ratio that works for everyone; instead, your ideal varies depending on your body type and carb tolerance. In her published book, UNLOCK YOUR MACRO TYPE, Christine teaches readers about the five Macro Types, bio-individual nutritional blueprints rooted in science and backed by real-world results. Some will be surprised to discover they should actually be eating more calories, and not less.
