    Has Simple as Fat #LCHF cured Jon Gaunt’s deafness?

    Has Simple as Fat #LCHF cured Jon Gaunt’s deafness?

    Jon has just been fitted with hearing aids and he cannot believe the difference they have made to his life.
    As part of his journey back to normality Jon thinks that the weight loss and the reversal of his Type 2 diabetes has given him the confidence to sort out his hearing.
    Being overweight and deafness have a lot in common as they both have the effect of isolating you and perhaps making you depressed.
    Not having a hearing test is the equivalent of not looking at your reflection in a shop window.
    It is a form of denial and Jon realised he had to confront it.
    So now he has hearing aids and a second mortgage to pay for them! But joking aside he has more confidence and greater self-esteem.
    Jon believes that the hearing aids like the bike he has just bought is all about him investing in himself and he thinks this is vital if you wish to lose weight and change your life with Simple as Fat.
    Have a listen and see if it rings bells with you too!

    Jon has bought a bike, fallen off it, but feels 18 again.

    Jon has bought a bike, fallen off it, but feels 18 again.

    Jon Gaunt has finally treated himself and bought a bike.
    As you now he puts his weight loss and reversal of his Type 2 Diabetes mostly down to eating Low Carb High Fat real food (LCHF) but he now wants to venture further and for that he says he needs a bike.
    However Jon states he is not having a mid-life crisis and he is certainly not going to be dressing in lycra and riding on our pot strewn roads. No, Jon has invested in a mountain bike which cost £750.
    One of his fans on Simple as Fat remarked that they had spent the same amount on a car to which Jon replied, "yes but the car isn't going to get me fit is it?!"
    Jon states that he has invested in himself and in his future and in this podcast he talks about how important it is for everyone who wants to lose weight to do the same and for once to put themselves first.
    He says even though he has fallen off his bike it just made him giggle and riding downhill at speed has made him feel 18 again.
    Jon is beginning to realise that taking back control of his body is great but taking back control of his mind is the next step in his journey to become a better man, husband and father!
    But don't worry it is still a funny podcast!

    We don’t need Flab Jabs, Michael Buerk or Vegans to tell us we’re fat.

    We don’t need Flab Jabs, Michael Buerk or Vegans to tell us we’re fat.

    In this funny and thoughtful, Simple as Fat free podcast Jon calls for Low Carb High Fat diets to be accepted as a third way of reversing Type 2 Diabetes and curing the obesity epidemic.
    He rages about how much more evidence will be needed before medical authorities and dietary guidelines accept the blindingly obvious evidence in front of their eyes that people all around the globe are curing themselves by eating real food.
    Jon says saturated fat is not the problem, it is excess sugar that is at the heart of the problem and major diseases like Type 2 diabetes, strokes, heart disease, obesity and dementia.
    But no, the medical authorities are still refusing to alter their dietary advice and still insist that their Eatwell plate is the best way to eat and that the guidelines of a third of your plate being starchy carbs. Jon says this is just plain wrong. Jon calls it the “eat Death plate.”
    Meanwhile Big Pharma is now suggesting that they could have a flab injection to cure obesity? More drugs!
    Ex-BBC News presenter, Michael Buerk, has entered the fray telling fat people that they are fat because they simply eat too much. His ignorance is stupendous. This from the man who brought the Ethiopian famine to the West could have used his communication skills to help with the obesity problem and its victims rather than stigmatise them.
    Jon rages that Buerk by name Burk by nature is ignorant of insulin resistance and should apologise and get himself educated.
    Finally, Gaunty has a go at the United Nations who have joined the propaganda machine of the vegans and is recommending a fad and unhealthy vegan diet.
    Jon states that the links between Big Food/Big Pharma and Government dietary guidelines must be broken as there is a genocide being committed around the globe.
    However, Jon controversially states that telling people that they are fat is not bullying or “fat shaming” but plain common sense medical advice.

    Gordon lost 4 stone (56 pounds) In 90 days with SAF.

    Gordon lost 4 stone (56 pounds) In 90 days with SAF.

    Gordon Copeland has lost over 4 stone in just 90 days by following the www.simpleasfat.com plan.
    Gordon sent a photo and an e mail to Jon Gaunt thanking him for the inspiration. But to be fair, Jon has been re-inspired by Gordon and in this episode Jon uses Gordon's example to explain that until you have your head in the right place you will never lose real weight and never keep it off.
    Gordon talks frankly about his sugar and food addiction and Jon empathises with him completely. They both used to eat 2 Cadbury Cream Eggs when paying for their petrol!
    Most people like Jon and Gordon have had a dysfunctional relationship with food, and sugar in particular, since childhood and it is that addiction that needs fixing if you are ever going to lose weight, reverse your Type 2 Diabetes and take back control of your life.
    Jon's done it. Gordon's doing it. You can too.
    In this thoughtful, amusing and inspiring podcast Jon explains how you too can break your addiction to sugar and lose weight for good by eating real food and walking. He even explains how you can still eat curry and see the pounds drop off!

    Forget Kim Kardashian. My dog has gone Keto Low Carb!

    Forget Kim Kardashian. My dog has gone Keto Low Carb!

    In this latest episode from www.simpleasfat.com Jon Gaunt says you can forget about celebs like Tyson Fury, Kim Kardashian and Halle Berry backing Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) diets as his dog has just gone low carb and he has never looked better.
    In this funny but informative podcast Jon Gaunt explains that most dog food is 74 percent carbohydrates and he believe that, just as with humans, this is a recipe for disaster.
    Jon’s toy poodle, Ambi, also suffers with epilepsy. As you may know Low Carb High Fat diets are an effective treatment for epilepsy in children and have been used since the 1920’s based on the Banting Diet.
    So, Jon thought well what’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander or the Poodle and put his dog on LCHF. Jon says the results have been amazing and led to weight loss, more vitality, a better-looking coat and most importantly no epileptic fits since going low carb.
    So, the question is can a Low Carb High Fat Diet control epilepsy in dogs? Jon Gaunt says, yes and his Toy Poodle is the living walking, barking proof.
    Jon also talks about the benefits that he has felt himself since going low carb which he says are less depression, his gout eliminated and of course combined with walking he has reversed his Type 2 diabetes and got his blood pressure into the normal range.
