Brian Krock, half of the hit YouTube sensation “Krocks In The Kitchen,” was born and raised in Collinsville, Illinois. He currently resides in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife Jessica and their two Pomeranians Oliver and Scout.
In June 2018, Brian weighed in at 514 pounds. He heard Kevin Smith on the Joe Rogan podcast talking about kicking off his weight loss with two weeks of plain potatoes, inspired by Penn Jillette. At 35, Brian wasn’t sure he’d live to see 40, so he went home and told his wife Jessica that he wanted to try two weeks of potatoes. Naturally, Jessica thought he was crazy, but she picked up a copy of Penn Jillette’s book Presto! and the rest is history.
Combined, Brian and Jessica were 800 pounds when they started this weight loss adventure. Now, almost two years later, they have lost 300 pounds together by following a whole food, plant-based diet. In March 2019, they started their YouTube channel Krocks In The Kitchen and began sharing recipes, tips, and a whole lot more.
In April 2020, Brian launched his podcast I’m Losing It! and he hopes to continue sharing his story and showing others that it is possible to change. Join him for random chats, rants, special guests and more!
