Contestant Kurt Morgan
#theWildDiet Abel James

Who am I?

Hi, my name is Kurt Morgan and I was most recently a contestant on ABC's "My Diet is Better Than Yours"   If you followed the show you know that I was fortunate enough to partner up with Abel James, Author of "The Wild Diet".    My story began with a head on car collision in 2006 that required 2 surgeries and an additional procedure to clean out a staph infection from the surgerical site.  Little did I know then, but that would be something that would affect me for the next 9 years, and nearly took my life on 3 seperate occasions.  But enough about that, I am well and half way through my 47th year of life.  I am a husband, father of 4 and grandpa meanie to 5.  
 
The only problem I had was that I was overweight and with some "normal" health problems like every other 47 year old that ate whenever and whatever he wanted.
 
Flash forward to meeting Abel James.  The man that would forever change my life.  He saved me from myself and from what I didn't know I was doing to myself.  Enter #theWildDiet
ABOUT ME

Episode 1 & 2 

Episode 3 & 4 

So, in the first 2 episodes of My Diet is Better Than Yours you are introduced to myself and Abel and The Wild Diet.  I have to admit, when Abel was introducing me to the "fatty coffee" and eating on his plan I was confused.  Everything I ever learned about "healthy" eating was literally going out the window!  It's hard to beleive that you can enjoy your food and lose weight.  I didn't have to count calories, carbs or measure.  Seems too good to be true, but without fail in the first two weigh ins I lost a total of 21 lbs.  UNBELEIVABLE!  Of course Able was never surprised.  
May favorite and not so favorite episodes.  First we get to meet my youngest granddaughter Luna...so it has to be a favorite episode BUT our challenge is running up and down stadium stairs.  While going up was not a piece of cake, coming down was my biggest challenge.  Why?  Because I have HUGE feet and the steps were half the size of my feet.  I actually slipped and nearly fell so safety became my number one priority.  Then the World got to meet alot of the my family and the unprecedented Dessert Party!  Who eats dessert the day before they weigh in??? Apparently I do!  Summary...I lost another 16 pounds in these two episodes...Heck Yea!!!

Episode 5 & 6

Finale

REally enjoyed these episodes.  Had lunch out with my son Tyler and his wife Rene.  Officiated my step-son Christian's wedding to Kaci.  Had a ton of family around and went off of my routine!  I was nervous these two weeks as we had so much going on leading up to the wedding.  The other contestants tease me a bit because I was think I haven't lost weight but I was stunned that I could enjoy life, enjoy food and still walk away from these two episodes losing another 13 pounds!
