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 …
