F2FHQ 069 - Intermittent Fasting with Chris Tinder

Stop Eating?  That might work.  Well, there is a bit more to Intermittent Fasting (IF) than that.  Chris Tinder joins us this week to share what he has learned and how this protocol is bringing so much success to his journey.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your host, Zack Carlson from TheGunBench.com and along with me is your other host, Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle not only in diet, but in all areas of life.

THANK YOU Firearms Radio Network for sponsoring the bandwidth of this show!

Two Weeks in Review

Zack: Traveling and eating out!  http://www.fogodechao.com/menu/meats/picanha/

This is Zack’s burger when they were NOT eating out...

Carol: Eating very high fat, moderate/low protein, very low carb (not even many veggies, yikes!).  Skipping breakfast (coffee with almond milk throughout morning); Protein and fat for lunch and replacing dinner with 2 Fat bombs (see recipe below).  Snack on sunflower seeds (nasty habit!)  I feel pretty good and dropped the Thanksgiving pounds that were probably just water weight from the carbs.  But I feel lighter, not very hungry and having a lot of calories so I'm liking this.

Carol’s “Almost Pure Fat” Fat Bomb Recipe:

86% FAT, 8% Protein, 6% Carbs

¼ cup of Butter (not margarine… real butter)

¼ cup of Coconut Oil

½ cup of Almond Butter

unsweetened cocoa powder

liquid Stevia

walnut halves and pieces

mini muffin tin

mini muffin paper cups (optional


Put first three ingredients in a bowl and microwave until the mixture is liquid and mixed well.

Add 1 tsp of Cocoa powder and a few drops of Stevia to taste.  Add more until you love the taste!

Fill each mini muffin tin with walnuts (approx 2 full walnuts but in pieces)

Mix liquid continuously so as not to let ingredients settle and separate.

Pour 1 Tablespoon of mixture in each cup over walnuts.
