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?

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

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

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.

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) :).
