Nice Plug In Amarillo Globe-News

      32 Comments on Nice Plug In Amarillo Globe-News

Yeah, yeah, I know I’m supposed to be on vacation.  But this article in the Amarillo Globe-News came to my attention when I checked emails and such after landing in Fort Lauderdale:

Chris Hayes and his wife Michelle watched a documentary online nearly two years ago called “Fathead.” And while hard to describe, they said something just clicked after watching the 104-minute film.

“People call it different things, but you wake up and have one of those ‘eureka moments,’” Chris Hayes said. “You see something you identify with, and something just made us want to do this.”

“Fathead” was a rebuttal to the highly popular “Super Size Me,” in which a man ate at McDonald’s three times a day for 30 days, gained 24 pounds and looked horrible.

In “Fathead,” Tom Naughton went on an all-fast-food diet for a month, but kept it at 100 grams of carbohydrates a day. The result? A loss of 12 pounds and lower cholesterol.

Let me tell you, that ain’t nothing.

Approaching the two-year anniversary of their low-carb diets, Chris Hayes, the IT director at the Amarillo Globe-News, and his wife have combined to lose the equivalent of an NFL linebacker.

They have lost 232 pounds — 137 pounds for Chris and 95 for Michelle.

Nice plug, eh?  You can read the rest of the article online.

We now return to our regularly scheduled vacation …

    But didn’t he look horrible to begin with? Just asking.

    Excellent. I know it’s always nice to get validation of the work you’ve done. You deserve that and more, Tom. Have fun on that vacation!

        Tell you what: when vegans stop calling meat-eaters murderers, stop promoting b.s. about meat-eaters warming the planet, stop citing weak-ass observational studies to “prove” that meat-eating causes cancer and heart disease and blah-blah-blah (while ignoring all the vegetarians and vegans who die of those diseases), I’ll stop making fun of them. But given how many of them act like a dietary version of the Taliban, I won’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

      The Diet Doctor is okay, but he charges a lot of money for information you can find for free elsewhere. He won’t even respond to a question to something he puts up on Twitter.

      I think he is one of the least engaging of all the LCHF doctors. I’ve gotten responses from Volek, Ellis, D’Agostino and Noakes when I’ve had questions. Eenfeldt wants you to pay him.

        It’s quite a bit of content for $9 per month. I’m glad he took that route, because now he’s a full-time content producer instead of a full-time doctor.

          First month is free. You can try and if you don’t think it worth the money you can quit anytime.

          Truly free enterprise.
