Roker knows he has to stay disciplined and he says in his new book, Never Goin’ Back, that he will never get back to his heaviest weight again, a large 320 pounds.

Roker knows it is going to be hard, but he is determined to keep the weight off. He actually made a point once when talking with reporters saying food addiction is the worst addiction because you still have to eat.
