Robert Reames is Trainer and Nutritionist of the Dr. Phil Show.
Reames was born and raised in Northern Indiana. He was overweight as a child. 
"It wasn't really due to anything else than I loved to eat. I ate too much. Pizza and fries was one of my favorite meals." But by age 15, Reames realized he was "the nice fat kid, but none of the girls want to go out with him." "I learned at a very young age that it wasn't a diet that was the answer, it was a lifestyle change," Reames said. 
Reames has been a personal fitness trainer for 20 years.
In 2012, he launched the Visual Eating and Exercise Program, or VEEP. 
He is author of "Make Over Your Metabolism"
