Andrew Delvard of Plymouth, England joins us with his inspiring story.  After eight years of living with Lupus, a chronic auto immune disease, Andrew has seen great improvement in his quality of life through ancestral eating.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your guest, Andrew Delvard of Plymouth, England and joining 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.

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

TOPIC:

Andrew’s Story:  After many years of struggling with Lupus, Andrew has found much improvement in his quality of life through ancestral eating and continual self-experimentation with diet and exercise.  Andrew also helps Carol to review Jonathan Bailor's Calorie Myth Book.  We didn't quite do it justice so we will have Andrew back next week.

From the Community:

Thanks to all who sent Zack condolences!!

Jesse - jumping back on the wagon after the month of december off.

Angela - Long story short: I've let the weight creep up way too much since August (got married), and need to fit back into my clothes. Exercise and good nutrition have gone out the window so I'm getting myself ready to succeed in the new year. This is step one!  You can only listen to so many fat2fit episodes while eating fritos! It's time to stop the madness :)

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.

Fat2Fit HQ 045 - Zack Might Start The 4 Hour Body

It's working for many. Will it start working for Zack? This week we review diet FAQ's from the book and we discuss how to get over Zack's aversions to SO MANY health foods!  Join us in the journey!

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your host, Carol Salva and along with me is Zack Carlson from gun guy radio. 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.

WEIGHT IN REVIEW:

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

  • Jake:  200?
  • Zack:  dunno Was 254.8 the other day though
  • Carol: 124.5 lb

MAIN TOPIC:  79 - 99 of The 4 Hour Body by Tim Ferriss

Carol:  From the book I'm only implementing the cheat day!!!! (my diet is pretty clean with mostly real food, lower carb already)   On the cheat day I had lots of sugary and bready carbs as recommended... Does it work for me?.. more data needed.  Still doing my fairly clean eating on other 6 days.

Zack: Common responses to questions is a smart chapter to include. 30g in 30 min is tough w/o dairy and eggs.

The Four Hour Body

CDC admits long standing error in Salt-Reduction recommendation

PLUG:   If you can get to Colorado on Aug 24th, here is a great mud run to support!  Are You Scout Tough?   Near Colorado Springs, CO. Benefits Boy Scouts in that Pike’s Peak area.  Great cause, great price: $35/25/15

FEEDBACK:

John Tricomi Tenney

So I was listening to episode 41 in the middle of my 7 mile walk today when you started talking about salad dressings and what you use. I so wanted to call on the spot and let you know what I do. Had to get back and post this right away. I use salsa! If I'm at my favorite Mexican restaurant I get salsa and guacamole! Sorry, I just love it!

YUM John!  Thank you so much for this and for that great video on diet soda you sent us on Facebook!  I love guacamole and salsa!  SUCH a better option than some dressings you can buy.  This is an awesome tip.  Keep this kinda thing coming my friend!! - Carol

NY Times article about why raw veggie are not always best.

Relentless Roger and the Caveman Doctor

Special thanks to Kevin Skachenko,Mark Mealy and Stacy Knickerbocker for contributing to this podcast episode!

WHAT WE ARE FOCUSING ON THIS WEEK:

Don’t give up, the time will pass anyway.  It is a lot of work to be healthy.. yes.  BUT, it is a lot of worknot be healthy too... you just don’t get any of the feel good benefits.

NEXT SHOW:

Ex-Pro MMA fighter, Student of the Gun podcast videographer, technical guru...  Jarrad Markel.  Tune in next week to get some tips for raising awesome individuals (and being one!).

FEEDBACK:

Mike Cavanagh:  I started the \"Paleo\" diet a about a year ago.  I had listened to a podcast (econtalk) with Art Devanny about the problems with high carb diets and with gluten.  So, without understanding I was starting a paleo diet I just started cutting out all wheat products and really cut down on starchy foods- no rice, potatoes, etc.  I also started exercising.  Nothing crazy, just a simple dumbbell workout that hardly made me sweat.

I immediately dropped about 10 pounds (just a couple weeks) going from about 220 to 210.  Hovered there for a while, then the weight just slowly melted off.  My weight now fluxuates between 189 and 193.

I used to be a gym rat, and although I was Fit, I was also Chubby.  I could never lose the fat, but then I was still washing down my pizza with a few beers.  Now I eat huge salads, snack on salomi and nuts (love almonds) and don't shy away from bacon or fatty rib eye steaks.  Also eat as much veggies as I can.

I also benefit from being very active, walk when I play golf (about a six mile walk), do my own yard work, play lots with my daughter- Don't watch too much TV!

Good luck.

P.S. the Gillette Mack 3 Turbo leave a smooth finish- and it has a cool name.  I recommend it to the looser.

Bahahahahahahahaaaa - LOVE the P.S. Mike!  And your story is great also.

Thanks for sharing and for listening.  Your advice is sound and helpful~Carol
