What better way for two podcasters to check in with each other on their weight loss adventures than by starting a podcast about it?

Join John (Brand X Podcast) and Emily (The Story Behind) as they try their hardest to shed those pesky pounds and check in with each other every week.

Note: We are not doctors, nor do we play doctors on TV (or in this podcast). Please talk to a medical professional before taking any of our advice.

In This Episode:

  • This comes out New Year’s Eve! Welcome to you if you are new to the podcast!
  • For those who are new, John does Keto and Intermittent Fasting, Emily does Intermittent Fasting.
  • We talk about eating in our “window” — This is in regards to Intermittent Fasting and the hours during the day we allow ourselves to eat. We both do about 16-8 or 18-6: 16 hours fasting/8 hours of eating or 18 hours fasting/6 hours eating.
  • We recorded this a few days after Christmas and we got on the scale and dealt with the number like champions (sorta).
  • Warning for those who may not like food-talk: We discuss cookies toward the beginning.
  • The Christmas-New Year’s Slump is a challenge for us!
  • John’s special lady is coming! Yay!
  • Emily would love the energy of New Year’s Day at least once a month.
  • John signs up for a meal planning website with recipes and shopping lists to help him with keto.
  • We walk through The Keto Cycle Diet website quiz.
  • With kids and dieting: The Days are Long; The Years/Weeks are Short.
  • We talk about some of our goals for 2019. John wants to learn some more “Dude Cooking” techniques.
  • Emily talks about the fresh egg test!
  • We talk about our health-related Christmas gifts.
  • Carb Hangovers are real!
  • Shopping while hungry is bad — not just grocery shopping.
  • Emily got a super duper scale for Christmas!
  • Weight loss is NOT a straight-line. There are ups and downs. We need to trust the process, though!
  • We relate weight-loss numbers to podcasting numbers — sorry for the behind-the-scenes.
  • Emily wants her Power Chin back!
  • Yay (Dut-Dut!) for Winning Wednesday Posts!
  • We did it! We met our challenge of losing weight between Christmas and New Years! (Collectively)
  • We are live in the Facebook group Thursdays at 11 a.m. EST
