Tim Kaufman was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) in his early twenties. He was in chronic pain most of his life. He was addicted to Fentanyl, alcohol, and fast food. At over 400 pounds, he was unable to perform simple tasks and almost immobile. He had lost his interest in life and almost given up. Tim started a journey to regain his health by changing one small thing at a time. He is now an athlete that thrives on a plant-based, whole food lifestyle and leads a healthy, happy, productive, and active life free of medication. He uses his platform on social media to help others find health and happiness. Follow Tim on Facebook, Instagram, and fatmanrants.com.
