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.

FEEDBACK:

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!

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.”

F2FHQ 056 The Pareto Principle

A few positive changes will get you MOST of your health gains.   Zack and Carol chat about minimum effective dose and how social media can change your life for the better.

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

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:

FEEDBACK:

Zeke:   Sent me a text with this link and one word:  Scary

http://foodbabe.com/2013/02/12/how-food-companies-exploit-americans-with-ingredients-banned-in-other-countries/

Zeke reports that he is super active.  You can see that on his myfitnesspal link above.  He has cut out gluten after some beer made me bloated to the point of pain and the possible gluten allergy issue popped up.  A week of no bread and I feel amazing.

Awesome Zeke!  Look at you, self-experimenting! SO proud of you.  - Carol

Jared: I have just started listening to the podcast over the last week. I am interested in the idea of the LCHF diet but I am wondering about putting my children on the diet as well. I have 3 very active young daughters, ages 10, 8 and 5. Do they need more carbs in their diet than I would considering I am trying to drop 20-25 pounds where they are still developing and in no need to drop weight. My girls still have that wonderful, child-like metabolism that makes the rest of us sick. :)   Thank you for any advice you can give me. Have a great day!!

Thanks for writing in Jared.  In our emails and on the show Zack and I talk about how common your concern is. We all want to build good habits in our kiddos.  In my house, we minimize the unhealthy choices available.  We are not perfect but we try to model healthy choices and we talk about it with them all the time.  My own kiddos are making better choices and eating A LOT less processed food and A LOT more vegetables, fruit and healthy fat than ever.  Always check with your pediatrician for the best health plan for our kiddos.  Hope that helps! :)  - Carol

Michelle Gabavics:  Since I started this journey I have lost about 13lbs & 5 inches!  I'm so excited on how much my body is changing & how much stronger I feel.  My daughter  is 11 & we did a 5k together this morning & we did 3.31 miles in 1:00:13, it was 18:11 miles an hour!  I think we would have done a little better if there were less hills and I wouldn't have forgotten to take my inhaler.  But we slowed down until I could catch my breath & kept on going strong!  I also started listening to some of the other firearms radio shows (talking lead and gun girl radio) & they are good listening & funny! Got to hear you on there too & know that Jake is still alive! Keep up the good work & say hi to Zach (try some guacamole it's really good, Wholly guacamole is pre-made & you can get it in 100 calorie packs too in spicy or regular)!

Hey Michelle!  You are doing fantastic!  It is great to hear how you are keeping it up! And I love the fact that you are being so active with your daughter.  What a great role model!  Thanks for helping us continue this journey going.  We love the updates, keep them coming!- Carol

Lisa Jarmon:  Hey Carol,  So here's the update… I met with my trainer this week. She has also completed a tough mudder. She tells me that it put her in the hospital with hypothermia LOL. She also told me that it was awesome and that I should definitely do it. I took her the tough mudder Boot Camp print out and she designed a routine for me in preparation of the event. So… I officially preregistered  for Nashville 2014!!!!  I'm super sore but I'm super excited! I just wish I had an actual date. When do you expect them to release the date of the event? My son may also be joining us as well as a cousin and friend. We'll see. Tell Zack there's no backing out now! Talk with you soon. Lisa

Since this email, they have released the date of June 7th!  Lisa signed up immediately and we are official FRN Teammates!  Yay us!!  Thanks for stepping up to the challenge with me Lisa. I can’t even imagine who much fun, bonding and electric shocks we will go through together that day. ;)  - Carol

Tracey:  Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much I am enjoying the podcast.  I continue to learn a lot and to be encouraged by you and your guests.   I am thankful that Jimmy Moore covered the idea of his splurge meals - that he allows himself one every 6 - 8 weeks, or longer.   I had been "treating" myself to a treat/cheat meal once a week - but since I would typically treat myself to a favorite sugary treat of some kind, it would lead to cravings and that would lead to another little treat, then another.   However, since hearing Jimmy's explanation, I picked the last Saturday of every month to have a splurge meal or treat - just one.   I think this will work for me!  I also re-committed myself to trying to have veggies at every meal - thanks to the podcast with Jonathan Bailor.  I am loving my eggs and sauteed onions, mushrooms and bell peppers - everything cooked in butter (Jimmy Moore!).

Thanks for writing in again Tracey!  I love that our guests are having such a positive effect on your life.  You sound just like me.  We hear something reasonable, try it and see if we want to keep it.  These shifts you are making over time might seem small but they are not.   All of these changes sound like you are in a very different place than you were last year.  I know your check-ins are inspiring others.  I know they inspire me.  Keep it up Mama!  And keep us posted!!  - Carol

Norman Franklin on Youtube:   Hey Zack, I am a Digital Electronics technician. I will be happy to rig up something to help you train for the electronic shock obstacle of the tough mudder. All that I want in return is for you to use it while ya'll are during the show on youtube.  Great show! Ya'll keep up the good work!

I need to know if you are serious Norman.  We might just take you up on this.  LOL.  And when will I see your Tough Mudder registration??  Thanks for being a regular member of the community.  We would love to run with you.  - Carol

F2FHQ 054 - Not Your Typical Health Nuts

Both Zack and Carol have recently undergone personality assessments.  No surprise as to the results.  We talk about Carol's recent findings in her Ketogenic blood work and new food trials for Zack. Is Zack REALLY going to back peddle out of Tough Mudder??  Hmmmm....

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

Zack: Probably close to last time?

Jake: 205

Carol: 125.4 lb  down (woo hoo!)

TWO WEEKS IN REVIEW:

Update from Zack: www.thegunbench.com

Update from Jake:  I'm holding steady at 205...Only up 4 from my final 8 week weigh in. Tried some wheat products ie: pizza and felt TERRIBLE! Focusing on Meat, Veggies and Fruit.... maybe a little Taco Bell.  Drinking some diet pop again... Not buying cases though.  Making positive choices asking for "no bun" when eating out, choosing salads over other menu items. I really think dairy is a big no-no for me.... digestive consequences....

Update from Carol:  High Fat is working for me to suppress my appetite (finally - SOMETHING).  But I have to watch overall caloric intake because I mindlessly munch all day (even when not hungry).  So less activity and 3,000 calorie days put weight on me.  Not High Fat, I think.  I am having a lot of success right now with LOTS of non-starchy veggies and LOTS of Fat and some protein.  As long as I watch what I snack on.  Some of my Ketogenic journey is recorded below.  Your own blood work numbers are pretty cool to see.   .5-3.0 is supposed to be Nutritional Ketosis.  I was having too much protein and this is how my numbers came out when I dialed back the protein, kept healthy fats high and made sure I was getting a ton of non-starcy veggies:

Also - I was a guest on the Health Nuts Anonymous show that will be coming out in the near future.  Links to come.  For now, follow Jeff Fry at https://twitter.com/jeremyjeffry.  You won't be sorry.

COMMUNITY JUICE FAST started Sept 22nd!    How Juicing can fit into a quest for Ketosis?  We discuss cycling different protocols to keep things fresh.  I like a 5 day juice fast just to reset and start fresh.  For me, it isn’t about the 5 day juice fast.  It is about the time following the fast.  I have new taste buds!  After a fast it is much easier for me to avoid processed foods and make healthier choices.  It just works for me. (Next Community Juice Fast is Sept 22, 2013!  and don't forget to like our Facebook Juice page)

Also!  We are hearing that trying to stay in ketosis for an extended period of time may not be optimal.  For more on that, listen to a recent episode of Ask the Low Carb Experts by Jimmy Moore: Episode 45 - John Kiefer and Dr. Rocky Patel talk about glycogen stores, ketogenic diets.. (Thank you for this Jef Fry from Health Nuts Anonymous)

FEEDBACK:

Hello!

I am Jessica. I've been listening to you on your podcast Fat2FitHQ & heard you mention that you had started a spark page!! Ive been on Sparkpeople for about 8 years now! I don't use it as regularly as I used to... I feel that tracking too much makes me crazy about food & I forget to just enjoy my meal & not try to calculate every morsel that Im eating :)

I think your podcast is great - I listen to it while I workout on my spin bike in the early hours of the morning before my son wakes up! lol The guys crack me up.. I think its good they have you to steer them in the right direction ;)

Thanks so much Jessica!  I know I wrote you on Sparkpeople but I want to tell you again that I am thrilled to have you on our new Sparkteam!  I love that site for the social networking and likeminded virtual community.  I can tell that you are just the kind of Spark-teammate that we need!  Thanks for the kind words.  You and the F2F Community are really steering the boat.

Gratefully,

Carol

F2FHQ 052 - Ketosis, Juicing and Mud Runs

More Ketosis talk this week.  Zack and Carol also have a great bio hacking chat for two people who have no idea of how to properly bio hack.  They also talk about the Tough Mudder race and how Carol fits juicing into a low carb lifestyle.

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.

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

WEIGHT IN REVIEW:

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

Jake:  204

Zack: UP 261

Carol: 127.5 lb  up even MORE

TWO WEEKS in REVIEW:

Carol:  2 ½ weeks now.  Not losing.  Gaining but I think it is my indulgence in some of these things that folks pull back on. ( Nuts, cheese, just too much snacking even when I’m not hungry)  Not giving up just yet.  Tracking should help me.

What works for others doesn't necessarily work for me but I am learning A LOT!!  Yay!

Zack:  Just haven’t been focused on nutrition over the last few weeks but I am very curious about Nutritional Ketosis.  I have been looking at Tough Mudder information and it is terrifying!

FEEDBACK:

Carol, Jake and Zack:

This is Jack , we met at the NRA show when I stopped by the Lone Wolf booth.

At that point I had barely begun my journey in trying to lose some weight and get fit.

I thought I'd give you an update on my journey.

To date I have lost 56 pounds from a starting weight of 263 to my current weight of 207!

I give much of the credit to the positive reinforcement I get from listening to Fat2Fit and other Podcasts I have learned about from your show.

I am excited with the results to date, but still have a way to go as my goal is 190 (I think).

I lost the 1st 10 by just doing the "basics" no fast food and began to limit carbs (a little).  The big change came following your interview with Relentless Roger.  During the interview, he mentioned something about making your health one of your hobbies ( I think it was Roger, although there is an outside chance it may have been Dean Dwyer).  This absolutely resonated with me!  As a firearms enthusiast, I have spent countless hours learning about my hobby, yet I have spent almost no time understanding nutrition or wellness!

I began listening to Relentless Roger and the Caveman Doctor Podcast and eventually discovered The Paleo Solution Podcast.  Because I literally had years to catch up on Robb Wolf;s podcast, I had plenty of listening to do (I'm still not caught up).

Ultimately, I got Robb Wolfs book and have become a little militant (according to my family) about the whole clean eating thing.  Not doing the grass fed meat as often as I'd like, but otherwise I'm pretty "hardcore".

The education has been amazing and while I am paranoid of this being a "fad", for now, I am in the zone and continue to invest time and energy to get healthy.

My job requires that I travel extensively (>50% of the time) and while this makes eating right a challenge, it also offers the opportunity for me to listen to the podcasts which reinforces my resolve.

While, I haven't integrated a formal workout regiment, I have been diligent about walking daily (no less than an hour a day at about a 4MPH pace).  I still believe that 95% of the success can be attributed to diet not exercise.  My goal is to begin lifting weights once I get to my goal weight.  Why I know this is probably not optimal, I am trying to avoid the mental impact of gaining weight (even if from muscle) until I am ready.

There are so many tools I have learned about on the show that have helped me along the way.

I thought I'd mention them (in case you can use them to secure sponsors) :).

FEEDBACK:

Hi Carol,

It’s Mike from God and Guns. :) I just wanted to say I have been loving it!  To be completely honest I have to say that a few weeks ago when you encouraged us to listen to everyone else’s shows, I listened and took your advice.  I listened to the very first couple of shows but then never got into it.  So because of your persistence, and encouragement, I am now hooked.  I picked up in the middle of Jake and Zack's contest and have since listen to every episode after that. I especially liked the most recent with Jonathan Bailor. Thank you for all you're doing! It\'s very encouraging and tonight whilst devouring 2 apple dumplings I kept thinking, "This isn't from nature..This isn't from nature."  So I have a ways to go! Haha! But honestly, when I give up sugar, I feel so much better. I just need to keep listening to your episodes for the encouragement.  Keep it up Carol and Zack! I'm loving this!

THANK YOU MIKE!  What a great note of encouragement this was for us.  And I am sure you encouraged others just by letting us know where you are with your own health goals.  I just love how you have changed your perspective in recent months.  We hope you come on the show soon so you can tell us more!  

Thanks again, Carol

FEEDBACK:

Aaron from Dripping Springs:

Good morning y'all.  In the last year, I've lost 30 pounds and gotten in the best shape of my life.

I'm 43, father of two (6 & 10), and a former fat, asthmatic, allergic, lazy kid. My wonderful wife of almost 24 years started exercising about a year and a half ago and she really inspired me. She was not fat by any stretch of the imagination, but she started toning up and got my attention. Her encouragement was huge. So, here's what I did:

  1. started eating better quality food and smaller portions, and avoiding processed foods.
  2. I started Invisalign and CrossFit on the same day. Invisalign was a big help for me because I would nibble, snack and graze all day. Invisalign showed me that snacking was not worth the extra time of flossing and brushing after each and every snack.
  3.  CrossFit was a perfect fit for my life because it is a fast, time-efficient workout. The smaller classes/groups are a plus also. There is always a coach there encouraging, correcting and even pushing me to do more and not hurt myself.
  4. I went more Paleo style nutrition and have eliminated most of the grains from my diet
  5.  I started using FitBit and tracking all of my intake and activity. Wow, that helped keep me honest and relearn what a serving size really is.
  6.  I didn't really use the scale at first. I saw my progress in my pants getting loser
  7.  I practice moderation in all things, including moderation.

Some things I've noticed since I started eating better and avoiding the processed garbage foods: I have more energy! I don't have to use my allergy medicine every day, and now, I rarely need it.

On FitBit, if y'all set up a group, I'll play.

Zack, you seem to be looking at your weight loss through a scope on 9x, try and dial it back to 3x and get back on target! Set small, achievable goals on the way to larger ones. Track your progress and don't just look at the short term, look at the long term.

Aaron,   Dripping Springs, TX

Thank you Aaron!  Zack read this  on the air and he really liked your scope analogy.   And I am so excited about your weight loss!   All the things you've put in place sound incredible.  And  what a great idea about  Invisalign!  Love all the  changes you made.  And of course, it is working!!  Our friend Dion set up the Fitbit group.  I will be getting  one soon.  You guys can all start without me!  :)       Thanks for the  great feedback.  - Carol

F2FHQ 038 - Is Juicing Worth It? Let's Try!

Juice Fasting,  Challenge Week 5 and Hungry For Change Review.  This week Carol and Zack review the documentary Hungry for Change.  We discuss the film, starting a juice fast and weight loss plateaus.  There have been a few hiccups along the way but Zack and Jake are still at it.  Listen to this week’s episode to see how the F2F trio are handling recent obstacles in weight loss.

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

Week in Review:

Zack: Wagon wheels fell off and are laying smoldering on the trail somewhere.

Carol: Disappointed that I didn't lose weight after walking MILES through theme parks pushing a stroller over several days.  All clean food too.  I'm thinking there may have been too much clean food.

Where we started our journeys: Zack 278.2 lbs(Challenge 267.3), Jake 228 lbs (Challenge 221), Carol 145 lbs (Challenge 121.5)

Jake: 206.8 6.42% down

Zack: 251.2 6.02% down

Carol: 123  up

Main Topic:

Documentary: Hungry for Change

Check out more of their stuff at www.hungryforchange.com

Review by The Lazy Caveman: http://www.thelazycaveman.com/hungry-for-change-review

Zack: Finally broke down and bought a juicer, I’ll regret not trying if I don’t. Who know’s it may be just the ticket. I’ve found myself not eating as many vegetables as I was before.

Carol: I enjoyed the film and felt that about 95% of it was dead on accurate on eating clean and getting more real food. I think these are my people (sorry Zack).

Tips of the week:  

Zack: Don’t go on a fishing trip when you are on a diet!

Carol: Consult with your doctor before trying anything new for your health.  I love a juice fast to get lots of veggies I wouldn't eat otherwise, to kick addictions and to reset my taste for things.  If you try a juice fast for weight loss, be realistic.  Know that a few lbs of weight loss will be water (lack of sodium) and the weight of solid foods will also drop off after a couple of days.  Expect to put back on a few pounds as soon as you break your fast because of these and other factors.  That said... let’s juice!

Next Show:  Zack and Carol should be on day 4 of the juice fast.  We’ll check in to see how they are feeling at that point.

FEEDBACK:

Thank you to everyone sending emails and feedback to us!  Here is a special shout out to folks who posted suggestions about how Zack might break through his plateau.  Check out the Facebook page to see full comments.  Here are some highlights:

  • Vickie Becks: Drinking water makes a difference for me
  • Jeffery Schmidt: I up my fat intake to 80% of my diet & weight starts to come off again.
  • Jenny Challand: Might be water retention.  She makes good points about how your body will retain water when you are dehydrated.
  • John Tenney: I do a juice fast after a weekend of poor eating. (LOOK what you've started John!)
  • Special Thanks to Kevin Skachenco who suggested this documentary!

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
