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 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:

FROM THE COMMUNITY:Petia via email My name is Petia and I have been following your work on fat2fitq.com since end of last year. I found your your podcast searching for low carb diets, I think. The first podcast I watch was with Dr. Ede. I then began my journey with nutritional ketosis.  I started nutritional ketosis at the end of November last year.  I felt very well initially, best of all the lack of hunger impressed me. However, the past few months have been struggling. Meaning I am not losing weight, I actually feel that I am gaining fat. And then I watched your podcast with Kieffer, he is great by the way, so much knowledge. Kieffer is a star. I read Carb night . My CN journey began three weeks ago and I am enjoying food I have not eaten for years. I am not sure if  it is working for me. I have been trying to pay attention to my protein intake. Also trying to change exercise routine into weight lifting, but it is hard without mentor. So, Carol, thank you for inspiring me, you seem so jolly , lovely and a good person. Thank you for reading this message. And keep letting us know about your progress. Have a great day! With much appreciation Petia

Thanks for writing back and forth with me Petia.  I think you're doing a fantastic job on your journey.  You just keep trying things and like Roger says in this podcast: just breathe.  We forget all the things we are doing right.  I have enjoyed our emails and hope we can continue to motivate each other.  Keep us posted on your journey!  - Carol

Brad Wolfram: I picked up you podcast from FRN and have listen to a few shows. Most recently your recap of Paleo in Austin (where I live), RC Patel and AJ. I am a 50 yr old 5 time marathoner who let himself get distracted by work and bad habits and am working on dropping another 20 lbs.  I listen to your shows on my long weekend walks.  I get out early while still dark during the week so i don't use ear buds then.  Enjoying your podcasts. I also join your FitBit gang!  Keep it up the high energy.  Kind regards, Brad

My reply via email:  Brad: Austin is a great town!  We should've done a F2FHQ meetup over the PaleoFX weekend.  Love Austin!  I'm in Galveston this weekend.  Daylight is breaking through so I'm about to head out for my podcast walk.  It's a kick to think someone is out there listening to me doing the same thing sometimes.  :)  Hey, congrats on your marathons!!  Impressive!  I did a 1/2 once & it about killed me.  Those Tough Mudders have a ton if stopping, sitting & eating along the way.  Not as hard to me.  Hey!  I bet we will do another one- you should join us!! Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzAKGpr_qJ4&sns=em

It's cool that you're out walking & knocking down that 20lbs. Keep it up!  we all get distracted by work.  Great that you're making time for yourself.  Thanks for listening Brad & thanks for the kind words.  Keep stepping!!  - Carol

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
