Jack Templin is a long time FRN listener.  Join us to hear how one podcast (Fat2Fit HQ - yay!)  lead to another, which lead to another, which lead to a 75 lb weight loss in one year.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. We are your co-hosts, I am Jack Templin and along with me is 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.

Tip of the Week:  Instead of placing a chicken on a roasting rack, cut thick slices of onion, put them in an oiled pan, then place the chicken on top. The onion will absorb the chicken juices. After roasting, let the chicken rest while you make a sauce with the onions by adding a little stock or water to the pan and cooking it for about 3 minutes on high heat. - Mary in Cleveland
