F2FHQ 089 - Andrea "AJ" Jengle on Success for Women with Carb Nite and Carb Backloading

Many of us could use help applying cutting edge science to our everyday lives to meet our goals. Well, we are in luck!  Stress hacker and online personal trainer, Andrea "AJ" Jengle, is here with a female lens on Carb Nite and Carb Backloading.  But her advice applies to men as well.  She can speak from her own experience and as a trainer of women where she is having a lot of success with both protocols.   Listen in to hear how we can focus on our health so that things can really start to fall into place. Welcome to the Fat2Fit HQ podcast.  I’m your 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.

Andrea “AJ” Jengle: http://www.herfitnesssolutions.com

Also follow Andrea as she is a regular guest with John Kiefer  and Dr. Rocky Patel on www.body.io

.

Andrea Jengle (AJ) is a personal trainer and owner of HER Fitness Solutions. HER Fitness Solutions offers personal, specialized online training for women.   AJ created Her Fitness Solutions to guide women to a goal of looking and feeling great and being able to achieve that in the healthiest way possible.  AJ has successfully incorporated John Kiefer's protocols, Carb Back-loading and The Carb Nite Solution, into her clients programs.  She has also utilized CBL and CNS to achieve her own fitness goals and get the physique she's always wanted.

For regular folks wanting to shed fat, (not performance athletes) do you think it’s insulin levels or ketosis that makes the difference?

How you work with women now?

What about people who think you’re genetically gifted?

Feedback from community:

Angela Neale:  So far this year I've been working to be fat adapted. I don't pee on pieces of paper (keto sticks) or check my blood ketone levels or anything like that, I've just been concerned with eating nutritious foods and eating pretty low carb/high fat. I've been doing well with that as far as my energy levels are and my performance while working out, and genereal well being throughout the day go. My issue is that I'm maintaining my weight/body fat and I would like to be losing inches and body fat.  Not excited about using low-nutrient/processed foods: Would starchy carbs (real foods that only need to be cooked to processed) work?

AJ had already addressed Angela’s questions in earlier conversation.  She can’t give specific advice without knowing more about Angela but she always suggests that folks do Carb Nite properly before moving on to Carb Backloading or giving up on Carb Nite.

F2FHQ 081 - John Kiefer, Carb Night and Carb Backloading

Let them eat cake!  But timing when you eat that cake is everything according to physicist and author of The Carb Nite Solution, John Kiefer.  Listen in this week to learn some basics about how to use carbohydrates to your advantage.  Carol and Lisa pick his brain about what should be considered for the high-performance athlete, the average Joe and the middle aged mom just trying to get ready for bikini season.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your host, Carol Salva and along with me is Lisa Jarmon of Middletown, Ohio and John Kiefer of Athlete io.  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.

Topic:  John Kiefer

Introduction:  John Kiefer has a Masters in Physics, a former career in software engineering, author of The Carb Nite® Solution and Carb Back-Loading, Manual for Total Body Fat Control.  He is also the host of a new podcast, Body io FM.  Kiefer combines the best of laboratory research with tried-and-true real-world knowledge to guide himself and those who seek his advice. You can find all his links at http://athlete.io/.

Uncut video version of podcast:  http://youtu.be/nbpXYadZHsI

Lisa’s questions: Do you believe leucine is an appropriate tool for those who have difficulty regaining a state of ketosis following their carb nite? Is there any benefit or risk to intermittent fasting (until perhaps lunchtime) on the days between carb nites? Is it problematic not to eat on the day after carb nite if not hungry? Is morning exercise in a fasted state advised or discouraged? When will the new podcasts begin?

Carol’s questions: How did you discover this?  What lead you to this research? Can you explain the basic foundations of Carb Nite vs. Carb Backloading and why it works? Can you tell us how this is different for women… if it is? How important are heavy workouts for fat loss?  How do you feel about overall calories?

Tip of the Week: Avocado tip from Jenny Challand. Jenny tells us to a few things about avocados that you may or may not know. She tells us to pick an avocado that has slight give and isn't completely green. To cut it: Slice it down to pit, all the way around vertically. Pop out the pit, score the inside into 'cubes' then dependent on how ripe the avocado is you can scoop it out wit

h a spoon or just slightly squeeze the sides towards each other and the 'fruit' will pop right out

**ITUNES reviews** Careful what you wish for. We got a “so-so” review from DonnaRae. She only gave us 3 stars. Donna writes; I’m not 100% crazy about this podcast but I’ll try a couple more before deciding about subscribing. Seems to be a lot of personal opinion and chatter rather than facts and helpful info.

OUCH Donna Rae! No, seriously, thank you for the constructive review. We don’t claim to be experts so it is a tricky thing. We don’t want to give advice but I bet we can do more to give at least facts about what is working for us or working for other folks. And we have started incorporating a listener tip so maybe that will be helpful to you. Mostly, this show is a long chronicle of our journeys. Ours and those of our listeners. It is meant to be entertaining but also motivating. So folks know they are not alone. We do, however have some great informative shows in our history where we’ve brought on guests that can actually give you some great advice. Here are a few to check out. Thank you again for the honest feedback! - Carol

From the Community:Angela Lastname (Angela from Canada) Yeah, yeah, I’m back. LOL Do you know if it's possible to set MFP to only record your exercise (and not dock you 2000 calories for not entering food?) I know on a podcast you said Zeke (maybe?) was only recording exercise? I only ask because I'm doing this crazy elimination diet and not super interested in logging my food all the time (I'm writing it in my day planner, along with other key items I'm self examining). I really look forward to seeing how the Calorie Myth method of working out goes! Thanks again for all your awesomeness, encouragement and keeping us all accountable in staying with the podcast. I really appreciate all your hard work! Angela

Thank you Angela!  I'm still so tickled to have you back in the fold!  :)  I wish I knew the answer to this.  I don't.  I did read it on air so we can appeal to all the MFP folks we have out there to see if there is anyone doing the same thing with the site.  I applaud you and your elimination diet.  SO tough to do but SUCH great information you will get on yourself.  Please keep us posted!!  - Carol

F2FHQ 077 - Lisa Jarmon, Down 94 lbs and Ready for Tough Mudder

What did she do to lose so much weight and keep it off??  Well...everything.  Join us this week as Lisa Jarmon tells us about different protocols that she has tried and how successful each was.   Lisa has some great words of wisdom and her favorite free resources to share with us.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network and along with me is Lisa Jarmon of Middletown, Ohio.   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.

TOPIC:  Lisa Jarmon's Story:  

In November of 2009, I found myself at 262 lbs.  Somehow I had allowed myself to get closer to 300 than 200 - sobering! I knew that with a family history of heart disease, I was headed for an early grave.  Starting with Weight Watchers and journeying through a number of plans and methods (some wiser than others), I’ve lost 94 lbs. and would like to lose an additional 20-30.  Since I was urged to set a goal for this year (Carol:), I am working hard at fine tuning it and figuring out what it will really take to get to my goal.

I’d like to share some of what I’ve learned, some of the best resources I’ve found, my biggest frustration about sharing my story, and what I’m most passionate about.

Tip of the Week:

Samantha Sgruggs, RD gave us a great tip for Brussel Sprouts.  “You just gotta cook them right! Some people steam them or boil, which traps that Brassica gas. Saute = best.@Nutri2Fruition

Lisa's home set up to prep for Tough Mudder.  Go Lisa!!

Great little home gym you've set up there Lisa!

From the Community:

Sandra from Vancouver BC on F2FHQ website: “...Working on Tough Mudder for a while, now I’ve done a ½ and strength training.  Has young guy team (yay) and needs some lady friends….I hope Zack and Jake realize their early shows together are a great listen for newbie dieters. It's great to hear people have the same struggles with deciphering all the diet info out there and to learn we all go through cycles of good days and bad days.  (See Sandra’s complete feedback at www.fat2fithq.com/069)

Keep it up! A faithful listener.

Sandra...Heeeeey… how about Tough Mudder Whistler?? … check our this video that shows how my buddy Caroline overcame her fears and conquered her first Tough Mudder last October: http://youtu.be/gQ-DhvWBYOI

Thank you again for writing, Sandra. Good luck getting some girls on that Tough Mudder team.  Thanks for you support over on the Facebook page and for this feedback. I appreciate your kind words.  Please stay in touch!!

Carol

From Jay aka Geardad

Howdy, Carol! I really only have ONE goal for 2014 and that is to actively pursue kaizen - (Philosophy of improvement or change for the best.)   I just want to make small incremental changes to improve myself, and thus my life. But to be more specific:

1. Be a better dad and husband today than I was yesterday.

2. Tell my wife every day that I love her. (Sadly, I don't do that hardly enough. It's mostly the autopilot stuff - you know, before I leave or after I come home, before we go to bed at night, etc. I want to just surprise her with it every day.)

3. Continue to experiment and find out what works for me and what doesn't as far as diet and exercise go.

4. Focus on HEALTHY, rather than skinny.

5. Do some kind of mud run.

6. Get my family to Houston.

And that's it. Thank y'all so much for what you do. It makes more of a difference than you know.

Jay, aka GEARDad, from the People's Republik of Kalifornistan

Jay:  THANK YOU so much for creating the Fat2Fit HQ Instagram account!  We will all have fun following it.  I love your goal for 2014.  You just keep improving.  We should all have that as our basic goal.  Keep up the great work Jay!  - Carol

F2FHQ 076 - Part 2 Calorie Myth Book Review with Andrew Delvard

We wrap up our review focusing more on the "exercise less" advice in this book.  Andrew Delvard returns to give his opinions and insights.  An episode not to be missed!

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m Andrew Delvard of Plymouth, England and also with you today is Carol Salva of Houston, Texas.   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!

TOPIC:

Part II of our review of The Calorie Myth book.

Exercise

Carol: Doesn’t seem like enough exercise.  Few pages in the book dedicated to that.  Machines help.

Tip of the week:  Banana ripening Avocados:   If you buy hard, unripened avocados, try putting them in a bag with a ripe banana.  Check it 12 hours later and your avocado will probably be ripe and ready!

From the Community:

Jack Templin of College Station Texas joined me for an obstacle run!  Jack has been a faithful listener for about a year and has lost about 75 lbs!  He has lots of other  health podcasts he listens to along with other Firearms Network shows.  Jack is working to ready for himself for our Tough Mudder in Nashville Tn later this year (see below).   He wasn’t sure about it but he came out to join me for the Caveman Challenge in Houston, Texas recently.  I want to thank Jack and his wife Shelly for making the drive and joining me, Caroline and her husband Jim and other Cave folks in an evening of fun and fitness!  Look for more information about Jack’s journey. We can all learn a lot!

Fat2Fit HQ 067 - Holiday Happiness

Zack is having some holiday success and we wonder if it is the Intermittent Fasting he is trying.  Carol is desperately trying to beat back the signs of aging that are all over the dang place now.  Come along for the fun, dysfunctional ride that is our show.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your co-host, Zack Carlson from TheGunBench.com and along with me is your 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.

TOPIC:  In the thick of the holiday season now.  How it’s going?

Free Documentary American Meat (Thanks Lisa Jarmon): http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/11/23/american-meat.aspx

How to Survive the Holidays, blogpost from ABEL JAMES: http://www.fatburningman.com/how-to-survive-the-holidays-without-gaining-weight/?awt_l=7nMjU&awt_m=3gcj4YGIHnbvm1.

  1. Focus on satiety: During the big meals focus on eating to get full, not stuffed. You don’t need to be counting calories or analyzing the ingredients, just chill out and load your plate up with 80-90% meats and veggies – foods that will satisfy you – then leave a little room to have a treat or two. If your meal satisfies you, you’ll be much less likely to overeat.
  2. Know your trigger foods: acknowledge which foods might trigger a binge episode and eat something else instead.
  3. Plan to indulge, but not to the point of sickness: Plan to indulge and eat your favorite foods, but dedicate yourself to enjoying the process, not fearing what might happen. Plan to eat a cookie or two, savor them, then move on. Planning to indulge eliminates anxiety, reduces guilt, and allows for a balanced to eating and drinking.
  4. Separate your emotions from food: The holidays are stressful. Don’t use food to cope. In your plan, figure out what you’re going to do when something stresses you out. How about a relaxing walk? A spot o’ tea? A Will Ferrell movie? Whatever you do, don’t impulse-grab at a plate of cookies and shove them in your face. Not worth it.
  5. Relax and enjoy yourself: Be merry. Good vibes are contagious.

FEEDBACK:

JAMMOR66:  I follow the podcast all the time. I started with the guys but you have taken it to the next level. I am walking, fight night (game exercising) and watching what I am eating. Hit a plateau between 224 and 229 but I am not giving up. I sing at my church and it feels so much easier down 30 lbs! The complements on my appearance help too! I hunt and try to get out shooting with friends and I am trying to work on them to do a mud walk/run of some type ASAP. Please keep it up and I also can't wait to see/hear Carol Gets a Gun.

Thanks for connecting with us on Sparkpeople Jammor!  It's been great to chat back and forth with you!  I love your Sparkpage and how motivating it is to see your determination!  Plateau's are the WORST.  But I think the key is just realizing that it is just a plateau and you have to just figure out how to bust through it.  So you GO and keep Jammin More into life!  - Carol

From Jay M.

Hi Carol - I've been listening to FRN for a long time now, and like most gun guys, I listened to every podcast except Fat2FitHQ. Then I started to get tired of being in the shape I was, so I gave y'all a try and let me tell you the timing of everything couldn't be more perfect. I've got about 15 episodes left before I'm caught up. You are incredibly inspiring, and your positive attitude is something that I just can't get enough of. I'm actually on this site just so I could friend you! Hopefully you accept. Thank you for what you do, and keep up the amazing work!

Thank you Jay!  It has been fun connecting with you on Myfitnesspal and on Fitbit!  Looking forward to motivating each other.  Thanks so much for your kind words about the show and for being part of our community!  - Carol

The Calorie Myth

Jonathan Bailor’s GREAT NEW BOOK COMING OUT SOON

Preorder here to raise funds for Typhoon victims

I am getting an early preview copy of Jonathan Bailor’s new book The Calorie Myth: How to Eat More, Exercise Less, Lose Weight and Live Better, and I CAN’T WAIT!  We know it will be based in science and will be written with Jonathan’s wit.  If you remember, Jonathan was on this show back in episode 48 earlier this year.  His advice is based on more than a decade of research and endorsed by top doctors and researchers from Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins, and UCLA.   I have communicated enough now with Jonathan that I consider him a friend.  His book The Calorie Myth, offers a radically new and scientifically proven model for sustainable weight loss: the key to long-term success is not the quantity of calories that we eat or exercise off, but rather the quality of our food and exercise.

I am not getting any royalties from the sale of this book.  I’ve just listened to Jonathan on his podcast long enough to know that he is the real deal and this book could be life changing for many.  The book will be published December 31, 2013, by HarperCollins. But if you pre-order now, you can gain access to myriad bonuses including a free ebook, recipes, eating and exercise plans, and even videos.

Pre-Order Here: http://thecaloriemythbook.com/caloriemythcharitydrive

I will be getting my copy soon and will be offering an official review for you.  I just wanted to get folks the links in case you wanted to get your asap like I did.  If you do, let me know that you think.  - Carol

FEEDBACK

Laura H: Hi guys.  I heard you talking recently about Fitbit.  I\'m a Fibit user, love it and wanted to pass along a cool thing you can do with it.

Carol, if you need another reason to buy one, check this out: http://earnd.it/13ILptp.  You can sync your Fitbit account with Earndit which allows you to earn credits based on how much activity you do and you can use those credits towards some cool rewards.  You can also join Challenges, where along with encouraging you to be active, your name is entered into a drawing to win some awesome prizes. What a great way to give you an incentive to be more active and think of all the credits you would earn during your Tough Mudder!

Keep up the great work you guys are doing!  You are so inspirational!

Fitness in the Marines, why women MUST weight train and the answer to the question of why WeLikeShooting podcast is so long.  Jeremy doesn't disappoint.  He  joins us to talk about what we may want to consider if we want to achieve our fitness goals.  We learn about his life as an NRA pistol instructor, how he is realizing one of his dreams of owning his own gun store, what he did to get in peak physical condition "back in the day" and  some of his philosophies on how to live a healthy, enjoyable life now.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your host, Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network and along with me is Jeremy Pozderac from River’s Edge Tactical and the We Like Shooting podcast.  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!

Max Jacobson: Three Nutrition Lessons Explained By Dessert

http://gawkish.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/three-nutrition-lessons-explained-by-dessert/

Works in a bakery/family business but fiercely interested in Health and Fitness

“Most of my data is anecdotal or based on studies I’ve only just made up. I don’t plan on delving into the science of anything, just some good honest observations from someone who loves cake and working out.”

1) Beware of the clever disguise

2) Broccoli is not spelled B A C O N (health is work)

3) Know the difference between indulgence and fuel: Indulgence is awesome. Life’s too short to cut it out, but life can be a lot shorter if dessert’s all you eat.

”Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.”

FEEDBACK:

From Chris Tinder:  Checking in with my favorite fitness podcast.  I drank the kool-aid (or...preworkout...whatever) that is Crossfit.  I was on the /r/crossfit subreddit when I saw this blog entry.  It's about nutrition and balance.  I thought it was hilarious and wanted to share.

http://gawkish.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/three-nutrition-lessons-explained-by-dessert/

And I thought I'd include my favorite line about how some people think while doing paleo:

"Eating bacon wrapped steak fried in coconut oil every meal is probably the most awesome and least creative fantasy I can come up with, but it’s not really conducive to a long-term plan for healthy living."

Keep it healthy!  - Chris

Thanks for this article and the quote Chris.  It is great to hear from you again.  And even more cool that we are all hooked up on Myfitnesspal.  Great to have you in a group of other health-conscious individuals that are trying to live real life.  I want  you to know that I am now moved to make myself a bacon wrapped steak fried in coconut oil.  YOUR FAULT.  LOL.   See ya on MFP!  - Carol iTUNES!

WEIGHT IN REVIEW:

Where we started our journeys: Zack 278.2, Jake 228, Carol 145

Zack (Abstract/Sequential Personality): Probably close to last week?

Jake: 205

Carol: (Commitment to the Group) 121.4 lb

TWO WEEKS IN REVIEW:

Update from Zack: www.thegunbench.com

http://gunupthemagazine.net/2013/10/02/optimizer-horizon-adjustable-scope-mount/

http://troyclopton.com from God & Guns podcast is having great success with these supplements.  Click on his link to learn more.

Update from Jake:  I want to do Tough Mudder but it would be irresponsible from a time management perspective.   So what is his excuse for the squat challenge??

Update from Carol: Caroline and I were both chosen as 40 Over 40 Contest Winners by Smoothie King.  (Thanks for the nomination Lorraine Becker); Juice fast went well and seemed to help me get deeper into ketosis when I got right back into LCHF.

TOPIC:

Are you driving yourself crazy trying to get fit?  Consider the Pareto Principal.  Also, online communities and virtual support can make a huge difference to you in your journey.  It doesn’t have to be with us.  Try a squat challenge through Facebook or a meetup group in your area.  But we would love to have you along with us!  Here are a few ways to connect with us and other F2FHQ listeners:
