Zack’s Notes

Next Week:   Interview with Relentless Roger

FEEDBACK: Ty Clark: Hello Jake and Zack- Wanted to pass on my feedback.  I started listening to Gun Guy Radio and then your Fat 2 Fit HQ started showing up in my Google Listen so I listened to them too.  In June I shot at the Missouri State IDPA match, between the heat we’ve been having and the extra weight I had my worst match since I started shooting sanctioned matches.  That was enough to finally get me motivated to loose some weight and listening to your podcasts has helped.  I’m about 5’10” and on June 11th I weighed 238 pounds, this morning I weighed in at 216 pounds.  I’ve lost the weight by following a low carb/Atkins style diet.  I’m avoiding sugars, bread, rice, pasta etc. mainly eating meat, vegetables and nuts.  Like Jake mentioned there is no way I can avoid eating meat.  So far it has worked for me and my goal is to get below 200 pounds.  I’ll be shooting the USPSA Area 3 Championship next weekend in Grand Island Nebraska hopefully the weight I’ve dropped will help me be more competitive at the match. I would leave you all a review but I do not and refuse to own any Apple product and don’t use itunes so you’ll just have to settle for my email .  Keep up the good work.

RogerDickerman Zack & Jake - Thanks for the shout-out to Relentless Roger & The Caveman Doctor!  And thanks to livinlowcarbman for turning me onto this episode of F2FHQ!

Personally, I'd love to see the two of you execute "dueling" experiments - one with Paleo and one with a 4-Hour-Body protocol (slow carb).  I'd tune in weekly to hear about your progress.

If you guys ever need any advice/help in applying Paleo (or slow carb, for that matter), let me know.  I'm happy to lend my two-cents.

Keep up the great work!
