Carol and Jake review the Forks Over Knives documentary. They also followup on some of the goals and ideas talked about in the last episode.
Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your host Jake Challand from GunGuyRadio and here we plan to chronicle our journeys from Fat to Fit. We’ll talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle not only in diet, but in all areas of life.
Carol Salva from Texas is joining us again from Houston Texas. Carol is a fitness enthusiast and avid listener to the show.
Since last episode:
Zack is sick, or so he says.
Jake saw Zack on a Vegas Trip. Fried Twinkies were discussed.
Ty Clark: lost 47lbs Way to go Ty. We would love to hear more! Please write again.
Angela: Had some great insight for us last time and it had an impact on Carol this month. She shared Dean Dwyer’s Make Shift Happen book and podcast. Also some of her personal journey was helpful for Carol to hear. Thanks Angela!
Carol had a few too many treats after Christmas because she got too comfortable. She shared that a juice fast helped her drop cravings. Her friend Caroline connected with her on a free fitness app (www.myfitnesspal.com) and that got her back on track.

Good information about how important it is to try to eliminate or reduce processed food.
Don’t really buy that the meat is the problem.

Discussion about eating more organic when possible.
Houston has a great organic produce co-op (www.FullyRaw.com) Maybe there are similar things in other cities.

Caroline: Hello, to be honest I would never have listened to a Pod cast from “gunguyradio”, based solely on my emotional reaction to that name. However, Carol is a big fan and I am glad I listened to her speaking on air.This next year my word will be QUALITY, it will encompass aiming for a higher quality of nutrition, putting more in and getting more from my workouts. Also heading towards a better quality of relationships and the way in which I give of myself. I have become more mindful of doing things with purpose and good intent, claiming ownership and living with those consequences. For many of us these things do not come naturally, due to limiting childhood experiences and some poor choices, but I also believe in moving forward and living an open minded life. For many of us this has to be a daily conscious decision.
Happy New Year
