Mind Over Body is an inspiring narrative about a man, Peter Ajello, who suffered a diabetic stroke, won a $17,000 weight loss bet, and battled obesity. He did lose: over 200 lbs., medical conditions like diabetes and gout, his negative self-image and the need for over 14 medications. He accomplished it all without gastric bypass surgery or stomach staples.
In the process, he gained a healthy active lifestyle, respect from family and friends and a positive outlook on life. Peter has become a celebrity in the weight loss world. He has appeared on ABC’s The Doctors, numerous other TV and radio shows and been written about in hundreds of articles worldwide.
He has trained with John Defendis, Kari Williams, and Pete Ohnegian, received nutritional advice from Pascal Durand, been mentored by pop artist, Peter Tunney and had a complimentary skin removal surgery performed by Dr. Jason Pozner. Peter has traveled the globe on speaking engagements to share his secrets of success.
Peter is not content with mediocrity. His mission is to help others learn how they, too, can accomplish their weight loss goals and regain their lives.
