Meet This Year's 'Ultimate Men's Health Guy': Combat Veteran Noah Galloway

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," we see an example that you are not your limitations. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

"Men's Health" magazine recently set out to find the Ultimate Men's Health Guy.

Out of 1,200 men, combat veteran Noah Galloway took the top prize.

The soldier left two of his limbs in Iraq, and also, at the time, his will to go on.

"I got good at putting on a front, but behind closed doors I was drinking all the time," Galloway says.

"It wasn't until one day I looked in the mirror and I looked at what I was doing to the rest of my body, and I decided to turn it around."

He cleaned up his life and, because he was embarrassed by his injuries, went to the gym every day at 2am .

He designed an entirely new work out routine to accommodate his needs.

Galloway is now a father of three and says he's in the best shape of his life.
