Default I just won the 6 month long TBH biggest loser contest !!!


I just won the 6 month long TBH biggest loser contest that started in January!!! I want to thank and show appreciation to Todd (Bonedigger), & Rick for all the work in setting up the contest and running it. I also want to thank mdnabors, travisd993, duckmanep, coack k, flyin7, btguard, and all the rest of the guys that entered for the encouragement and motivation throughout the contest. TBH people are the best and always have been.
I started my attempt on here to lose weight in Jan of this year. Failed miserably on low calories and boot camp workouts for first 2 months. To be honest they would have worked if I had more time and self control. It simply was not a lifestyle I could sustain so why even bother. I started to give up and just resign to being fat which was very depressing for me. I did this TBH contest a couple years back and didnít even finish a month... 2 months into this and I was at the bottom of the pack and about to quit. The only people I knew who had lost weight and kept it off was one guy who had a surgery so I was mentally starting to prepare for that. As a very last ditch effort I started a fasting lifestyle in March that I thought wouldnít work. 1 week in I had more energy and more clarity than when I ate 3 meals a day plus snacks so I knew I was on to something special. I knew 1 week into this healthy lifestyle that I would lose over 100 lbs doing this and would never gain it back. What I like most about it is that itís simple, free, and it saves me time & money. I donít even have to work out unless I want to but Iíve got so much energy that Iíve got to spend it doing something. I make sure and do all the workouts with both my kids soccer teams I coach. Itís to the point that everyone in my daily life is asking me what Iím doing. They see the energy, focus, and of course the weight loss. Lots of friends and family are doing this with me now. My wife is down 9 Lbs in a week and a half. My brother is down 30 LBS in a couple weeks (he lost 17 lbs his first week doing this) Heís prepping for an elk hunt and a fishing trip. My friend at work is down over 20 lbs ‪in 2 weeks‬. Multiple other friends and family with results like this. Even my mom is down almost 20 lbs now. Below is the link to the you tube channel I created with all the extra time and energy I have now. I was spending hours explaining so I just created some videos. Also a toastmasters group Iím a part of has given me a project to create a youtube channel so here it is. Cut me some slack because itís the first you tubes Iíve ever done.

Hereís the Fbook group I created to share info and encourage. I post all the videos on here. Please Join!!!

I thought the same thing but it's night and day easier compared to low calories. Especially with the electrolyte drink I take. There was actually multiple studies done on this that support it. Your body goes into fasting forced ketosis within 24-48 hours which really helps. Once your body adapts to the lifestyle you feel even better than when your eating 3+ meals a day. It sounds crazy but you've got to experience it to see for yourself. If you think about it the way we eat today with so much food and sugar/white carbs in every meal is not a way people have ever eaten. People throughout history have eaten closer to how I am eating now. A fasted lifestyle.

I have already cut out as much white carbs and sugar when I started a product called Thrive about 5 weeks ago. I am down 21lbs already. I couldn't live on the veggies that you're eating. I am not a veggie eater but I eat a lot of protein, fresh tomatoes, and limit my fruit to early part of the day because of the sugar in them.
