ABC Radio Launches MOTIVATED Podcast Hosted by Maria Schiavocampo

Today ABC Radio announced a new podcast titled "Motivated," hosted by ABC News Correspondent Mara Schiavocampo, which takes a look at all things health, wellness, nutrition and spirituality. After struggling with her weight her entire life, Schiavocampo finally discovered the keys to living a healthier, happier life and losing 90 pounds along the way. She shares her journey in her bestselling weight loss memoir, "Thinspired: How I Lost 90 Pounds: My Plan for Lasting Weight Loss & Self-Acceptance." Now in her new podcast, Schiavocampo sets out to further explore health and wellness by speaking with doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers, celebrities and others who have TAKEN their own journey to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Episodes will cover a wide range of topics, including clean eating, meal prep, cutting down sugar intake, food addiction, latest fitness trends and more.

"The true gifts of fitness and nutrition are in how they make you feel, not how you look or what size jeans you're wearing," says Schiavocampo. "The struggle is real! But it's also a beautiful journey, and a lot more fun when we travel that road together."

New episodes of "Motivated" post every Monday on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play Music, and the ABC News apps. Additionally, a video of the episode will be available for streaming on the same day.

In the first episode "Do You Even Need Exercise?" obesity expert Dr. Louis Aronne and trainer Noah Neiman discuss if exercise is key to weight loss and why it's important, even if you're not looking to slim down.

"Motivated" joins ABC Radio's growing roster of podcasts including "10% Happier with Dan Harris," "Robin Roberts: Everybody's Got Something," "No Limits with Rebecca Jarvis," "Uncomfortable" and "Powerhouse Politics."
