Jonathan Giordano, aka Mudhustler, was an unassuming, socially-anxious, overweight owner of a concrete company in Massachusetts when he began posting his recipes on social media. Before he knew it, he was chatting with Oprah and quickly becoming one of the most recognized names in weight loss.
His Big Ass Waffles and Bird Balls showed thousands of people, like yours truly, that you can eat like a fat kid and still lose weight. His positive attitude and transformation from a shy, reserved "bro" to an outgoing, outspoken advocate for those struggling with weight loss has shown that social media can, in fact, be used for good.
We talk about his brief experience working with Weight Watchers, his feelings on Freestyle, the insane world of social media celebrity, the role of men in the weight loss community, and, of course, Waffles and Balls.
