Posted on 09/29/2018 1:54:32 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
I have been losing weight since May 27 due to the fact that I wanted to go on the Steve Kane Radio Show (longest running radio show in Florida) Caribbean Cruise last June. However, my wife told me I weighed too much and that she was scared I could eat myself to death with all that food aboard ship. She also stated that the only way I could go on the cruise next year would be to lose a hundred pounds.
The first month of attempting to eat low carbs I only lost about 5 pounds due to the fact that my carb cravings caused me to relapse as usual, to snack on crackers and other carb snacks. However, On July 2 due to hearing a new sponsor on the Steve Kane show (BTW, Steve Kane and his co-host Brian Craig, were the FIRST radio hosts in the country to come out in full support of Trump in 2015), I went to Save A Lot Nutrition Center and asked if they sold any appetite suppressants. The recommended Crave Stop.
I began taking Crave Stop the next days and over the next 3 or 4 days I didn't notice any real diminution in my appetite. However, I noticed that I had lost my carb cravings. I thought it might be temporary but by the end of the month, and with pounds shedding off, I continued to have no carb cravings.
This lack of carb cravings meant that I could go to buffet restaurants and eat AROUND the carbs which I did at least 6 times during the summer. I went to an Argentinian buffet twice, a seafood buffet twice, a brunch buffet once, and another buffet. In addition I used some creativity to develop other methods to lose weight such as using technology. For example, when I listen to Rush or Sean on my Echo Dot, I walk for stretches of at least an hour inside my house (A/C) so I do at least 1000 steps per day. I also do the same with my audible books. I call this my no-exercise exercises since it feels more like listening to the radio or reading than exercising (i.e. not boring).
On August 17 there was a gathering of Steve Kane Show fans at Sav A Lot nutrition Center in Margate, Florida during which time there was a weigh-in for me (which is on the YouTub channel). The result was that my weight dropped from 320 pounds on May 27 to 289 pounds that day. A 31 pound loss.
The second weigh-in was also at Sav A Lot Nutrition Center on Friday, Sept. 28. It was recorded by Steve Kane Show co-host Brian Craig on Periscope as you can see here. So what was my weight loss from August 17 to September 28? Well, watch the Periscope video above but I can tell you that I lost over half the weight I need to go on the next Steve Kane Show (1400 AM WWNN Radio 6 to 9 AM EDT, available on iHeart).
Oh, and right after the weigh-in I went to a Brazilian buffet for lunch. Great meat!
p.s. Steve Kane Show is probably the BEST early morning radio show on the topic of current events.
Congrats on your weight loss!
Question for you: 1,000 steps per day or 10,000? If you are walking for an hour, seems like that would be closer to 10,000 steps.
Congratulations on the weight loss! Thats tremendous! Thanks for the tip, Im checking out Crave Stop now.
That’s awesome! Congrats! I could stand to lose about 30 pds. The older ones gets...the harder. Especially with me being a female. Ugh! I look at food and gain! And I don’t eat hardly at all.
I’m curious to know if by ‘carbs’ you just mean simple carbohydrates that break down like sugar. Or all carbs, including complex carbohydrates. Because if you are eliminating complex carbs as well you aren’t doing your health any favor.
Congrats PJ! For me, the carbs are the problem. I will check out that supplement you mentioned. I need to lose about 50 lbs, and I am a short guy, and it has been quite a battle the last many years.
when I go on a cruise I don’t eat the bread at dinner...and no deserts just plain meats and vegetables...no lasagna etc
I go to the dinning room and get Eggs benedict for breakfast...poached eggs...and don’t eat the English muffins underneath...coffee and tea with skim milk no sugar and no chemical sweeteners...granola or raison bran with skim milk...I eat fruit and avoid the sugary fruit juice...
I only get a salad for lunch from the buffet...no salad dressing...no saucy items...all plain....
I avoid the pizza, soft ice cream deli sandwiches etc...I eat dinner early 6PM and don’t snack later or in-between...
drink lots of water every day...hit the gym at 6am when it opens...do lots of walking around the decks...
you can kinda manage your weight on a cruise ...
In between cruises :) I mow my own lawn with a push mower in the summer and go to the gym in the winter...I keep on the go so those horrible fat cells cant catch me...
I too am on a quest to lose weight; about 30 lbs so far. My secret method was a bit simpler but I do like the idea of a product that prohibits carb craving. I simply lowered my calorie intake to 1200 cals or less per day.
Carb craving is a lot like sugar craving. In fact the way I understand it; the body turns the carbs into sugar in order to burn it. When it finds it doesn’t need it; it turns it into stored energy (fat).
Hang in there! Wife and I are cutting down on carbs too.
In addition to limiting carbs, I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this video....BIG TIME!!!
Slow Jogging is the new fast! All you need to know at the beginning of your SLOW JOGGING journey explained by the Japanese running guru, Professor Hiroaki Tanaka himself.
Complex carbs are just sugar molecules linked together.
Eat high fat meat and green salads. For some, even cauliflower and broccoli will spike their blood sugar.
I cook a chuck roast or fatty tri tip and eat all the fat and drippings. Then there are the Costco rib eyes. :)
Oh yeah, down 30 lbs since April. Was size 42 jeans, now 38.
Congrats! I will recommend in addition, you switch to morton’s lite salt, and drink about 8 glasses of water a day and it will come off even faster.

10,000 steps but more often up to 15,000 steps due to getting wrapped up in what I hear on the radio or the audible book I’m listening to. For example, on Thursday I racked up even more due to listening to the Kavanaugh proceedings.
Oh, fiber carbs are ok. The sugar carbs to avoid. I take in up to about 20 to 30 carbs a day but no more. The Atkins Diet made me feel horrible but just allowing some carbs and I feel fine.
Yeah, I plan to eat AROUND the carbs on the cruise just as I have been at the buffets. When I in doubt on the food I see at the buffets I just check on my cell phone.
Great, in Southern Arizona there are no conservative radio shows before 6:00 am our time so I will try the Steve Kane show on Monday through IHeart although that app seems bloated and glitchy to me. My morning drive will be 8:30 to 8:55 AM his time.
Oh, one thing. Even the skim milk in your coffee has carbs you can easily avoid by using Silk unsweetened Cashew milk. Zero carbs.
Yeah, Steve Kane show. The best early morning talk radio show in the country and anybody anywhere can listen in via iHeart Radio.
