Geno Vento Changes Eating Habits

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Growing up the heir to a cheesesteak empire doesn't help pave the way for a life full of healthy decisions. That's especially true when you are named Geno Vento, owner of the world-famous Geno's Steaks.

Geno grew up surrounded by the Philly sandwich staple, regularly eating them on a daily basis, usually with cheese fries on the side. As a young man, it didn't really matter, but the years eventually added up.

When Geno got up to 366 pounds, he knew it was time for a change. He proceeded with a successful lap-band surgery. Dramatic lifestyle change followed. Geno is now practicing healthier eating habits, which unfortunately means cutting way back on his famous and tasty cheesesteaks and controlling his portions. He has also started a regular fitness routine at SWEAT fitness.

The results have helped drastically. Geno is down 98 pounds and still going.
