F2FHQ 126 - Listen Up, SOTG is Never Wrong

Can we learn about fitness and nutrition from firearms experts?  YES!  A LOT!  Paul and Jarrad Markel of Student of the Gun are here to help us understand how a healthy body is the key to a healthy mind.  Listen in to hear our reunion after too long of being apart.

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

Paul Markel

Paul G. Markel has worn many hats during his lifetime. He has been a U.S. Marine, Police Officer, Professional Bodyguard, and Small Arms and Tactics Instructor. Mr. Markel has been writing professionally for law enforcement and firearms periodicals for nearly twenty years with hundreds and hundreds of articles in print. Paul is a regular guest on nationally syndicated radio talk shows and subject matter expert in firearms training and use of force.  Mr. Markel has been teaching safe and effective firearms handling to students young and old for decades and has worked actively with the 4H Shooting Sports program. Paul holds numerous instructor certifications in multiple disciplines; nonetheless, he is and will remain a dedicated Student of the Gun.

Jarrad Markel

Not just another pretty face, Jarrad Markel has experience and training beyond his years.  Jarrad has been training to be a fighter since elementary school when he first learned the art of collegiate wrestling.  Now skilled in Jujitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, Sambo, the Way of the Fighting Pistol and Fighting Rifle, Jarrad is a well-rounded, tactical athlete with several professional MMA fights under his belt.  More than a brute, Jarrad has brains as well. He is the lead editor and videographer for Student of the Gun and works directly for Think On! Productions creating a wide variety of video material. In addition, Markel is a skilled webmaster, building material for the Internet side of the house.

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.

F2FHQ 116 - The Benefits of Challenging Challenges

employer_health_insurance_changes-150x150.jpg

One week can make an incredible difference in your life.  One week of healthy habits and you will probably see some progress on your weight loss (which might be water but will probably motivate you to continue). Getting past those beginning "hard days" is key!  That is when you start to feel really good and start craving the healthier foods and activities instead.  This week JT and Carol chat about what different people they are today than just 10 days ago when they were wallowing in self pity.  Listen in to come along the journey! Welcome to the Fat2fit HQ podcast!  I am your host, Carol Salva, and along with me is 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.

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.

Fat2Fit HQ 111 - Tortorich Take Aways

We heard from Vinnie Tortorich and he made it very clear:  No Sugar, No Grains.  It's that simple.  Doesn't have to be forever or all the time.  So do we agree?  How does this fit with other things we have learned?  JT and Carol chat it up in a show we did just to debrief. Welcome to the Fat2fithHQ 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.

F2FHQ 101 - The Athletic Fox Rachel Guy

Want to look your best? It is NOT about weight!  Rachel Guy joins us this week to talk about why we can have carbs!  Also, why we need to be lifting, how to get yourself motivated and why we don't need to always kill it in the gym. From Rugby and MMA fighter, to physical therapist and now one of Australia's top female trainers! Listen in for some motivation and some great tips from Rachel. 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.

Rachel Guy: Physiotherapist, Fitness Presenter and Health Consultant, Rachel Guy has worked in the fitness industry for the past 13 years. Based in Sydney, she is now regarded as one of Australia’s top female trainers with an international following. Athletic Fox has an Online Training Membership Program “The Athletic Fox Blueprint” and many personal training services and eBooks, the courses and programs are designed to suit all women from all walks of life and many levels of training.

In the media, Rachel contributes to Mens Fitness, Cosmopolitan, On Duty and Shape magazines and been featured as a fitness model in several T.V. commercials and magazines including Ironman, MuscleMag, The Sydney Morning Herald and Oxygen. Rachel is Head of Strength & Conditioning for the TV show Wimp2Warrior, a six-month training camp to take the average Joe to MMA fighter.

Rachel addresses a question from Angela Neale: What does she recommend to clients when coming back from an injury? How soon should they start training again? Should they do any training while they still have pain? Specifically, I hurt my lower back 3 weeks ago doing deadlifts. Did two other workouts later that week. They were body weight and light kettle bells and both HIIT. Couldn't bend over at all for over a week (or even put socks on or tie my own shoes). Now I'm nervous to lift or even do body weight training. Wondering where to start? The only time I feel any pain now is when I sneeze.

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:
