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 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.

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:

Community News:

Carol News: Crazy happy about my progress with www.jeffrynutrition.com.   ** I said "nutritionist" on the show and I think Jef is more of a "nutrition coach."  Sorry!  I'm doing some Ultra Low Carb but not completely.  We are working to find my upper limits and I CAN have a cheeseburger!!  YAY!  Jef coaching me through al of it.  I'm  off sweeteners of any kind and dropping weight!   Seemed to be water weight initially but still losing. Nice progress so far.  I highly recommend you find a coach!!

Fat2Fit HQ 067 - Holiday Happiness

Zack is having some holiday success and we wonder if it is the Intermittent Fasting he is trying.  Carol is desperately trying to beat back the signs of aging that are all over the dang place now.  Come along for the fun, dysfunctional ride that is our show.

How to Survive the Holidays, blogpost from ABEL JAMES: http://www.fatburningman.com/how-to-survive-the-holidays-without-gaining-weight/?awt_l=7nMjU&awt_m=3gcj4YGIHnbvm1.

  1. Focus on satiety: During the big meals focus on eating to get full, not stuffed. You don’t need to be counting calories or analyzing the ingredients, just chill out and load your plate up with 80-90% meats and veggies – foods that will satisfy you – then leave a little room to have a treat or two. If your meal satisfies you, you’ll be much less likely to overeat.
  2. Know your trigger foods: acknowledge which foods might trigger a binge episode and eat something else instead.
  3. Plan to indulge, but not to the point of sickness: Plan to indulge and eat your favorite foods, but dedicate yourself to enjoying the process, not fearing what might happen. Plan to eat a cookie or two, savor them, then move on. Planning to indulge eliminates anxiety, reduces guilt, and allows for a balanced to eating and drinking.
  4. Separate your emotions from food: The holidays are stressful. Don’t use food to cope. In your plan, figure out what you’re going to do when something stresses you out. How about a relaxing walk? A spot o’ tea? A Will Ferrell movie? Whatever you do, don’t impulse-grab at a plate of cookies and shove them in your face. Not worth it.
  5. Relax and enjoy yourself: Be merry. Good vibes are contagious.

FEEDBACK:

JAMMOR66:  I follow the podcast all the time. I started with the guys but you have taken it to the next level. I am walking, fight night (game exercising) and watching what I am eating. Hit a plateau between 224 and 229 but I am not giving up. I sing at my church and it feels so much easier down 30 lbs! The complements on my appearance help too! I hunt and try to get out shooting with friends and I am trying to work on them to do a mud walk/run of some type ASAP. Please keep it up and I also can't wait to see/hear Carol Gets a Gun.

Thanks for connecting with us on Sparkpeople Jammor!  It's been great to chat back and forth with you!  I love your Sparkpage and how motivating it is to see your determination!  Plateau's are the WORST.  But I think the key is just realizing that it is just a plateau and you have to just figure out how to bust through it.  So you GO and keep Jammin More into life!  - 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:

From Chris Tinder:  Checking in with my favorite fitness podcast.  I drank the kool-aid (or...preworkout...whatever) that is Crossfit.  I was on the /r/crossfit subreddit when I saw this blog entry.  It's about nutrition and balance.  I thought it was hilarious and wanted to share.

http://gawkish.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/three-nutrition-lessons-explained-by-dessert/

And I thought I'd include my favorite line about how some people think while doing paleo:

"Eating bacon wrapped steak fried in coconut oil every meal is probably the most awesome and least creative fantasy I can come up with, but it’s not really conducive to a long-term plan for healthy living."

Keep it healthy!  - Chris

Thanks for this article and the quote Chris.  It is great to hear from you again.  And even more cool that we are all hooked up on Myfitnesspal.  Great to have you in a group of other health-conscious individuals that are trying to live real life.  I want  you to know that I am now moved to make myself a bacon wrapped steak fried in coconut oil.  YOUR FAULT.  LOL.   See ya on MFP!  - Carol iTUNES!

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

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)

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.

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
