F2FHQ 114 - Tim Grabow Lost 100lbs by Keeping it Simple

IMG_0979-150x150.jpg

Move Over JT! Fat2Fit HQ inspired another Gun Guy to transform himself into a healthier, happier Gun Guy!  Tim Grabow has been a listener of the Firearms Radio Network for a long while and finally gave our show a try. (Sound familiar?)  He soon embarked on an all out health journey and credits JT with helping him find his way into an NSNG (no sugar, no grains) way of eating.  Listen to Tim tell us how he set out to learn all he could and how that ended up resulting in a 100 lb weight loss.  Tim has a very healthy attitude about how to manage cravings, holidays and loved ones when you are making lifestyle changes.  What a great person to have in our F2F community! Welcome to the Fat2fithHQ podcast.  I'm your guest, Tim Grabow and along with me are Carol and JT of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast, we are chronicalling our journeys from Fat 2 Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet but in all areas of life.

F2FHQ 099 - Ben Coomber on Finding Balance with Macros and Calories

Should we be trying to be so low carb?  I guess not.  Let's hear what Ben Coomber, a #1 rated health podcaster, has to say about the matter. We talk about our accents but also more serious things like what you can do to fix your intake for optimal fat loss and health.

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.

Ben Coomber: http://bencoomber.com Ben has an amazing podcast.  This is how he describes it: A full fat show on everything nutrition, food, human performance and being f**ing awesome, hopefully with a touch of humour. Ben Coomber is a performance nutritionist, coach, presenter and owner of Body Type Nutrition. Loves coffee, rugby, lifting heavy stuff and eating insane food. Past obesity statistic. Lives to find the extra 1%'s that make us better performing individuals, his co-host is the amazing Rachel Guy, the Athletic Fox.. . . . . . BOOM!

Ben addresses a question by Sandy Dumond.  She is very active, has lost a great deal of weight and is eating clean.  But Sandy has stalled out and can't get rid of her  "bingo wings" and "jelly belly."  Ben gives us things to think about regarding her current calorie amounts, where they should probably be and how to get there without gaining weight. Uncut Video:

FROM THE COMMUNITY

Angela Neale and her CarbNite journey!

Hi Carol! I just wanted to let you know that I'm doing great on Carb Nite so far. Tomorrow it will officially be a week and I've already lost 6.1 lbs. I cut back on my workouts last week as well. Holy cats! I actually have to go shopping for new work clothes (size 6) as my other clothes are just hanging off me. -Angela Neale

Angela and I have traded more emails about how well CarbNite is going for her.  She is proof that we should continue learning and trying new things.  I applaud her for stepping outside of her comfort zone to try something new that might even sound a little unconventional.  Angela is getting more recovery time and learning more about how foods are affecting her efforts.  GO ANGELA!!  Congrats on your progress! Keep us updated girl, we are proud of you!  - Carol

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.

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

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
