There are many things that Michael Antonopoulos, owner of TonTon’s Artisan Affections, clearly knows how to do. What is most striking about his story is his ability to reinvent himself. When you meet him he will readily admit that he once weighed in at 300 pounds. But in the next breath he tells the tale of discovering the effect that gluten intolerance had on his health. With new- found information he went on to remake his image and become a fitness trainer helping others find their peak potential, too. Eventually, though, he found himself on a financial edge with food stamps as his main source of “nutrition” and that was the beginning of his journey to launching his gluten-free artisan food business. And another “reinvented” episode in his life.
