Fat Guy Gets Fit- Ep 11- Run/Walk, Pasta Palad, Kathleen's Story, Check-In.

Fat Guy Gets Fit- Ep 11- Run/Walk, Pasta Palad, Kathleen's Story, Check-In.


MP3 File

This week we have a lot of interesting stuff. I cover a run/walk program, giving you the premise for the first week. It involves running 1 minute, then walking 4, repeated until you've run/walked a half hour. I'll carry this forward as the show progresses.

I discussed our sponsor's product this week, Xenergy Energy Drink by Xyience. It's an energy drink containing no sugar, zero calories, and all kinds of things to give you a boost through caffeine, guarana, ginseng, and taurine. It's pretty tasty, though it's not inexpensive. It's for athletes and performers, and I recommend the product from a taste, energy-provision, and healthy contents perspective (some might fight me on the caffeine- that's a choice).

Kevin Kennedy-Spaien gives us tips about dining out, and I swipe Megin's recipe for Pasta Palad.

Next, a special interview with Kathleen, a former fat girl who lost 150 pounds and kept it off for over 25 years. She went from near-suicide to bicycling and dieting her way down to a Size 2 dress.

Finally, Katrina and I check in. It's funnier than normal, if that's to be believed.

Hey Chris,
Have you heard of the Shangrila diet? Flavorless calories to reduce appetite. I mentioned it to you at Barcamp... the author was recently on CBC and they did a good piece on it.

Here's a link to a blog that explain's why the Shangrila Diet is a very bad idea...

How about exercise to lower your set point. It worked for the cavemen, it'll work for us too.

Hi Adam-
The linked article focuses on sugar, but most people use extra light olive oil. Olive oil has lots of health benefits..

Cavemen didn't have Doritos, Ben and Jerry's and Drive-throughs :)
