    Mario Colao Before/After


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MarioColao says says it took nearly dying to change his habits of eating unhealthy food, heavy smoking and heavy drinking. After experiencing heart attack-like symptoms, he decided to make a change for good and get his life back on track. Since then, he's lost 200 pounds and is on his way to become a personal trainer so he can help others that were in the same situation he was in.
