paleo-foods-300x243-150x150-150x150.jpg

Do you want to completely reset your preferences and maybe even lose the need for willpower?  We suggest you try a Whole30.  The first 10 days were rough but we are all super pleased with the results. Welcome to the Fat2fit HQ podcast!  I am your guest, TJ Gothier and here with me are Caroline Miner, JT and Carol Salva.   In this podcast, we are chronicling our journeys from Fat 2 Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet but in all areas of life.

www.whole30.com

We did our version of the Whole 30 and we all had great results.  Check out the shopping guide to see what types of foods are okay to eat if you do a Whole 30:

We were simultaneously participating in a weight loss challenge.  These are the other things we did that we did for the first 30 days of the year:

Journaling Food somehow Not Eating 2 Hours Before Bedtime 45 minutes of Exercise 5 times per week No Sugary Treats Checking in with Another Person in the Challenge Drinking 64 oz of water each day Taking a Daily Vitamin

F2FHQ 117 - To Count or Not to Count

calorie-calculator-150x150.gif

Counting calories is out of fashion.  We aren't supposed to worry about getting too many if we are getting lots of nutrient dense foods.  But what if you're getting a lot of nutrient dense foods and it isn't very many calories at all? Somehow that is a bad thing.  This week we talk about this double standard and the possible negative implications of going below your recommended caloric intake.

Welcome to the Fat2fit HQ podcast!  We are your hosts, Carol and JT of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast, we are chronicling our journeys from Fat 2 Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet but in all areas of life.

ITUNES REVIEWS     THANK YOU!!!!!

Mostdominant:  Carol is so positive and inspiring!  5 Stars!

Carol Salva and company just exude positivity and cheerfulness in a wonderfully infectious manner, it is hard not to walk away from this podcast completely motivated.  I also love how its all about the journey and they are not afraid to show their faults and failures that they’ve encountered in the past...and are still facing.  Keep up the good work guys!

OccupiedTerritoryShooter:  Great Show!  5 Stars

Thanks Carol and Co. for keeping me Happy, Healthy and often laughing while I am working.  You make my long drives enjoyable and informative.

Kreigmachine:  I am fat. 5 stars!

You will get me slapped….but I love your show.

FROM THE COMMUNITY

Susan Hall:  I am a listener of the show from the beginning! It is great, both funny and inspiring. What I like most is that it is about real people who struggle with some of the same issues I have. I listen to all the podcasts with the experts, but this one seems so real to me.

I have been on a long journey of trying to lose weight, but most of all, get healthy. I hit rock bottom in August of 2012 and since then have lost just about 70 lbs. I still have a very long road ahead of me, but in that time I have learned so much about how to take care of myself and the proper way to eat. I found the Paleo/Primal way of eating at my lowest moment and haven't looked back. Although I still have setbacks, I feel I have gained the knowledge to fight through them and stay true to what I believe is the correct way to eat for me.

I am also writing you to turn you on to an eye opening documentary that I watched recently. It is called Cereal Killers. I am not very good at giving summaries so here is the website:http://www.cerealkillersmovie.com/cereal-killers-movie. There is also a facebook page for it. I love, love, love this movie. It is not on Netflix or Amazon so you would have to rent it from the website. It is 4.99, but so worth it. I actually bought it so I can show it to my family members when they are open to it. Anyway, check it out if you get the chance.

Sorry this note ended up being so long. Thanks again for the podcast. I look forward to it every week.

Thanks so much for sharing your story Susan!  How very insightful.  I loved the "stay true to what I believe" part.  With all the confusion out there, that seems so wise.  It is no wonder you've made such progress!  See you over on Facebook to chat some more!  - Carol

F2FHQ 083 - Mindset is Everything

How badly do you want to reach your goals?  Are you thoughts taking you closer or further from your success?  Jake Challand joins us this week to discuss the power of your beliefs, awareness of what motivates you, and buying your lunch at a lumbar yard.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast.  We are your hosts, Jake Challand and 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.

Jake found this around lunchtime when he was at a lumber yard.  Don’t tell me you can’t make ½ way decent choices almost anywhere...

From the Community:

Sandy Drummond from Facebook and Fitbit Group: Just listened to the latest episode with Kefir. Ahahha more confusion lol You are struggling with that last 10 lbs correct? Have you ever heard of JJ Virgin? She talks about how if you are sensitive to a food your weight could be from the inflammation these foods cause.   It's a tough diet to follow. I fell off the wagon when I was training for a half marathon while on the diet and felt was losing too much ( can't believe those words are coming from my mouth).  You eliminate gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, corn, peanuts and sugar/sweeteners. Think this could be your issue?

http://crantonwellness.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/virgin-diet-quick-start-guide.pdf

Thank you Sandy.  I have promised myself that I am going to follow JJ's protocol some day.  I'm just knee deep in Carb Nite right now.  Thank you for this link.  I hope it helps a listener.  I know it will help me.  Thank you so much.   -Carol

James R. Sanders, MFP:  Carol!!! I found your podcast through FRN and finally got caught up! I'm a gun guy, a machinist, a musician, a foody and a beer lover. I'm 29 and my fitness and nutrition is more or less maintenance at this point. I'm 5foot9 and when I was 18 I weighed 120lbs, I was tiny!! It took about 7 years to hit 150lbs and considered myself in great shape. 2 years ago I hit 170lbs and had to change something to prevent the 30 year old landslide. My journey is the opposite of most of your listeners but gaining weight, healthy weight, is a struggle all the same. I love the show, good info and interesting ideas! I'm not sure if I'll keep up with this MFP thing, but we'll see!!!

James, Thank you so much for the great feedback.  This is such great perspective.  We don't talk about it enough, but you are right.  Gaining healthy weight is challenging in this day and age, right?  Keep up the healthy living James!  See you on Myfitnesspal. - Carol

F2FHQ 082 - Gun Guys on Getting Healthy

FRN favorites, Hank Hockey and Devin Blystone, join Carol to give some great perspective on what life is like in our real worlds.  Listen in, you might identify with a single guy, a dad of two or a mom of three.  Surely something said in this roundtable will inspire you to join us on a journey to a healthier life!

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your host, Carol Salva and along with me are Hank Hockey and Devin Blystone 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:  Hank Hockey and Devin Blystone, from the FRN Network

Hank Hockey Director of Sales at FRN and former CoHost of Gun Guy Radio: Skinny kid with high metabolism. Couldn’t gain weight to save my life...then 30 hit! REALLY want to start eating better overall. Not just me, but my family. Wife and two daughters, 13 and 11. Competitive dancers (one that has a super fast metabolism and one that has a very slow metabolism). The toughest part is getting everyone on the same page when their bodies require different amounts...trying to figure out what approach to start with. Having some physical ailments (tendon tears) that keep hanging me up and keeping me from starting to work out again, not to mention the extreme cold and snow that we’ve been having in Chicago that keeps us indoors a lot lately...did I mention that I make excuses for everything...you probably already figured that out! Hahahaha  http://www.myfitnesspal.com/GunguyHank

Devin Blystone of Firearms Insider & Producer of Gun & Gear Podcast: Skinny kid, chubby teen, fat young adult by eating fast food and pizza rolls (especially when I figured out I could have bacon any time I wanted). Started hating that I all my friends were skinny. Asked my friend about zee gym he was going to. Convinced me to come try it after hanging out one day. Started going a lot. Listened to the owner(used to be a trainer at another gym). Started eating better. Plateaued around 230, just started track what I eat this past week. 285 when I started and now 225.75.  http://www.myfitnesspal.com/DevinBly

Carol Salva of Fat2Fit HQ:  My story - chubby kid.  Chubby Adult.  But after kids, too much weight that wasn’t going anywhere.  I’ve starved myself, yo-yo dieting, tried quick-fix pills and such.  Finally, committed to losing the weight in 2009.  Over trained and super low calorie restriction got me way down (below a healthy weight) and then I couldn’t maintain it.  That is when I got obsessed.  Thankfully, the obsession has lead me to learn about myself and new ways of making healthy choices that don’t put weight on me.  Struggling with 10lbs of Christmas weight.  No time to exercise much lately.  Hoping “The Carb Nite Solution” will be the answer.

  • GoodDaytoYou Sometimes I make an "obstacle course" before I leave for work. I use big post it's, stick them on the wall or with home equipment. This works well if I'm working late or I know motivation to really work out isn't gonna be there. I make many smaller tasks like "25 sit ups" or "50 squats" and space them between cooking and chores. Seeing them written up on the wall makes me want to do them and take the post it down, but then again I might be a tad OCD.

  • jeffhendershot No secrets. Just knowing that others are observing your commitment (diary, exercise routine, appearance) is enough. Logging is a good motivator. When you desire to eat sweets, at least make it a protein bar! :-)

iTunes review:

Bigmoneyscott:  Inspiring me to lose 60 lbs so far!

Started looking for a gun podcast and thought I would give this one a try.  With my surprise, it changed my life.  They interview a lot of inspirational podcasters that taught me the proper way to eat and sleep.  In turn it will cause us to be healthy first, and as a result it will lead us to lose weight and become a healthy weight.  Give it a try!  It was well worth it to me!

Dear Bigmoneyscott:  WOW!!  What a great story you have.  Your feedback is sure to inspire other folks.  We are really touched that our show has had a positive effect on your life.  Sixty pounds is impressive for anyone.  You’re the one doing the work, so be sure to congratulate yourself.  Thank you so much for the review.  And keep up the great work! - Carol

F2FHQ 080 - Our VIP, Jack Templin, Loses 75 lbs in One Year

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

Main Topic:  Jack Templin

Married, 3 Daughters, job requires extensive travel ~60%+ of the time.  Battled weight since college with limited success.  Started most recent journey in March of 2013.  So far so good.

From the Community:

From James on Sparkpeople:  I only gamed 5 pounds over the holidays and I have lost it already thanks to going to midnights and periodic fasting while on midnights helps me maintain or lose weight as well as eating habits when switching back shifts. Love the recent guests and shows please keep up the good work and you mentioned shooting cross fit classes or competitions? Could you do a show on this? (JJ Razca)

I also have a guest request! His name is Antonio Centeno, Founder, A Tailored Suit & Real Men Real Style! I found him by researching conceal carry fashion. He is a retired USMC and is very good at customer care. I emailed him with a comment and he replied within a day. Lots of information on fashion tips and conceal carry ideas as a side.

Again keep up the good work and tell Zack I miss him because he was real for us guys in the work force. I know he didn't work a three shift rotation but still very relatable for us guys.

James

Thanks for taking time to write up James!  We are inspired by your dedication and your progress.  I'll pass the positive feedback on to Zack.  Also thanks for being part of the Spark Team.  You'll have to keep us up to date on how the Intermittent Fasting is going and anything else you're trying.  See ya in the Spark world!  - 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

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 075 - Part 1 Review of The Calorie Myth with Andrew Delvard

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.

Links we Mention:

Acenstralize Me's Blog post: Guest post by Ivy Hauser, her success story of using food to improve her life with Lupus and other ailments.

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 :)

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ 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.

This week we are a panel of three FABULOUS females to help you get 2014 off to the BEST start:

TOPIC:

Going public with our 2014 Healthy Goals.

Carol:  I want to drop a jeans size and keep it off.  (Truth be told I want to drop 2 jeans sizes)  And I want to see 120lbs again for more than a milisecond.

Shari: I want to get to a size 6 - comfortable and not squeezed in. I also want to compete in at least 2 major fitness events (Tough Mudder - Yikes!) and The Beach-to-Bay Relay.

Caroline: My specific goal is to BUILD. I have a good foundation but I need to build upon it and see some significant changes.

2014 GOALS FROM THE LISTENERS:  (HOORAY FOR ALL OF YOU!!!)

Chad Danielson from The Competative Shooting Podcast: He wants to build endurance because you know it has a direct correlation to your competitive shooting (ie: getting farther through a string of shots before breathing and physical drain become an issue.)

Gina from Myfitnesspal:   My goal is to lose another 25 pounds. I lost 25 this year but need another 25 to make my goal weight. Looking forward to a productive & successful 2014.

TOM NORKUS: I recently got engaged and want to be below 250 for the wedding in Fall 2014.

STACEY KNICKERBOCKER:  I want to lose just 5 1/2 more pounds to get back to a goal weight I know I can maintain… and then maintain it!

RAE: I want to eat healthful foods, feel great and if I can get back to a size 8 that’s a bonus for me!

RUNNINGMOMMA (MFP & Fitbit): I only have one set goal for 2014 and that is to complete my own personal marathon.

AARON: My goal for 2014 is to maintain my goal weight while building muscle and losing another inch or two around my waist.

JAMEY: My main goal for 2014 that’s fitness/health related is to reduce my running mileage while focusing on getting faster at my 5k and 10k distance. I’m also trying to do more weights. And most importantly, I’m going to try to focus on self acceptance and quit feeling like I have to lose 5 more lbs always. I think that goes under mental health.

LARRY SUTTON: 33 pounds to go when i get there is when i am nervous maintaining!  (see feedback below)

BRIAN: My goal for 2014 is simple. I just want my friends to look at me and say “dude is dedicated” instead of saying “fatty failed yet again”. That is all.

All of you guys are awesome!  I am so proud to be setting goals with you and so excited that we are going to do this together!  You're each so inspiring.  Please keep up the great work and we will surely have a successful 2014! - Carol

FEEDBACK:

Andrew Delvard: I have this condition called Lupus. It's very inflammatory and quite serious but since changing my diet to a low carb paleo style I have seen a radical shift.  I have been almost 100% stable and well it's given me hope and a new lease of life. Almost a new beginning. So I'm quite fundamental about all this lol and I'm always looking for ways to fine tune and enhance things. I've really investigated the juicing thing and it at least gives me options & well...interest. I am so grateful to the community and fat2fit for the life enhancing chances it's given me.  The anti inflammatory response is definite in my experience.   `I thought it was appropriate I tell you this as feedback is good and it's contributed and supported me in difficult times so thank you :)

Andrew: We are so appreciative that you would share your story.  What an important reminder that nutrition is fundamental in the quality of our lives.  And can be a critical component when you are managing a condition like yours.  Thank you for offering this feedback and for your promise to give us more information and details in the future.  Stay Healthy! - Carol

Larry Sutton:  My wife and i were young and she worked at that fast food resterant that everyone critisises for making us all fat. she would just grab dinner before she came home. she was a manager there so her food was free and mine was half price so we thought we were saving money. we probably were but we ended up way behind in the end. she left there and went to work another place. a miscarriage inspired us to decide to get healthy. she lost 70lbs and had our son. i lost 100lbs and was in great shape which i maintained until i hurt my shoulder a couple years ago. slowly the weight came back on until she found she gained 50 back and i gained almost 80. This time we no longer have endless hours to spend in the gym and we need to eat things as a family that a 3 year old picky eater has decides are acceptable to him and we feel that are healthy choices. The weight is coming off and i am within 33 pounds of my goal now but find that mfp and the people and forum community have helped me pass a holiday hump. I started listening to your show a couple months ago after hearing everyone on frn talking about you and your show. I think Zack is waiting for you to get tough and just kick him in the ass.  I don't have a Fitbit and am unsure whether i even want 1 i think too much tracking would be bad for me as i am competitive. I am using the Runkeeper app on my iphone after completing the couch to 5k a few weeks ago.  Good luck and keep the good shows coming.

Larry: You know I'm a HUGE fan of yours and so grateful that you share your ups and downs in your weight loss journey!  I'm super excited that you are at a point where you are living a healthy life with your family.  I love being friends with you on myfitnesspal and being regularly inspired by our posts and progress.  Kudos to you and your wife for focusing on your health and that of your family.  Keep up the awesomeness!!  - Carol

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

Tom on Myfitnesspal:  We wrote back and forth about mud runs. He did a really lame Zombie run and I told him about my lame beach run.

And please, tell your male guests to grow a set and stop whining already. (especially about the food- its embarrassing)

FEEDBACK: Tom from Myfitnesspal:

Carol commented on Tom's food log and Tom responded: I have a bad habit of snacking at night and do not list it. Hence- my weight loss has stalled. But I know what the problem is and I am waiting for the internal switch to flip so that I can start up again. I've noticed that when I was on track I was extremely motivated to lose and did. I don't know how or why but something clicked and I made it happen.   In my opinion, there is no diet or exercise or magic pill that will help anyone lose weight, stop smoking or anything else unless it truly comes from the inside and there is motivation and only then will you see real results.

I'm friends with Tom on myfitnesspal so this isn't really show feedback.  But I thought his analogy of that "switch" was very insightful.  I asked him if I could share this because I think a lot of us can identify with that.  If the switch is off... we need to find the thing that will switch it back on.  It's okay if it turns off.  Everyone's does.  And it's okay if you don't find the "on" switch right away.  But don't stop trying to figure it out.  We applaud Tom for sticking it out on MFP even when he doesn't have the deep desire for it right now.  Just keep on keepin' on Tom.  You'll come across your switch.  I'm sure of it!  - Carol

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:

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.

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

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)

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!

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.

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
