However, he said that as he got older he didn't like the way he was feeling. He had a lot of arthritis, joint problems and was morbidly obese.

It was his wife who influenced him to change his diet.

He decided that's what he wanted to do.

"I was just eating things without even figuring out what they are. And that's how I've been for four and a half years," he said.
