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 and Emily each week as they share their successes and struggles with weight loss.

Welcome to our new listeners and our new members in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook! We’ve seen a few new faces in the group and we’re always excited when you can join us for the live show.

No matter where we are in our weight-loss journey, it seems we are constantly testing and adjusting. John’s schedule plus the diuretic he’s supposed to take wreaks havoc on his eating window with Intermittent Fasting. And Emily had a day of Emotional Triggers that would have sent her into a binge-eating tailspin otherwise.

And we had a lot of interaction in the chatroom this week, which we always love and appreciate!

“One bad day doesn’t make a bad week.”  — Annette from our Facebook Group in the Live Chat!

Meet Your Hosts:

  • John Bukenas is a podcast editor from New Jersey. He started the podcast doing keto and intermittent fasting but is now gearing up for bariatric surgery (probably) later this summer.
  • Emily Prokop is a podcast editor and consultant from Connecticut. She has been doing Intermittent Fasting since April 2018 and has lost about 70 pounds. She started with 16:8 and is now doing 18:6.

In This Episode:

  • John’s trying to get more steps in and is sore today.
  • Welcome to our new listeners! We kind of throw you into the deep end at the beginning of this episode as we explain why we call Shark Week what it is. So, if you are offended by women’s menstruation, turn away now.
  • And while Emily had a day of a bunch of triggers, she realized that after 80 episodes, she finally has the mindset not to run to food!
  • John is testing and adjusting his eating window when it comes to Intermittent Fasting. BUT! He realizes that he doesn’t have to shame himself anymore. Yay!
  • John had a bad recipe experience and we are determined to find a way to enjoy cooking.
  • Emily tried InstaCart for the first time and we got to avoid the Big Kid Toy Aisle of Aldi.
  • John gives us some more Dude Cooking ideas and we want to know, what is the food you can’t make for yourself?
  • Fun Tip: At the beginning of the year, go through your pantry and it’s easy to find the cans and containers that have expired.
  • John JUST realized that Chia Pets come from Chia Seeds!
  • “You DON’T throw out Ferrero Rocher, you just don’t.”
  • It’s always interesting when we have to explain our diets to people. We both really love the science behind Intermittent Fasting and we talk a bit about it. We have more resources over at
  • So many great #WinningWednesday Posts!
  • We have really worked on our triggers over the course of the show and we’re getting stronger with every episode!
  • Later, Weighters!

We’d love to hear your scale and non-scale victories! Come celebrate your wins over in the Hate to Weight Discussion Group on Facebook
