    Begin a Fitness 66-day Challenge

    Travel (and many other things) can disrupt our schedules and routines. If we don't have good habits around our health, these changes can cause us to derail our health goals.

    "The One Thing" (great book!) shares the study that it takes an average of 66 days to establish a habit. As a result, they created a free 66-day challenge calendar to help you (and me) track our progress.

    Implementing a Keto Diet

    Implementing a Keto Diet

    Keto is short for Ketogenic diet. It is a low-carb, high-fat diet that allows ketones to be produced.

    So, you are basically drastically reducing the amount of carbs that to take in, neglecting your body the direct sugar it’s looking for. When you do this, your body doesn’t create insulin to process the food, so the body creates ketones from your fat cells to produce the energy it needs. Hence, the ability to burn fat and lose weight.

    My Struggles with Intermittent Fasting (IF)

    My Struggles with Intermittent Fasting (IF)

    n February, I went to the doctor, and, for the first time ever, I talked with him about getting my weight under control. 

    One diet I had tried before, and had good success while I was on the diet, was the Keto diet. I’m planning on talking about this in a future episode, but it’s basically a low carb diet. My doctor said that it was a good idea to follow that diet, but also for me to try intermittent fasting.

    I've been working on this, but I've been having struggles.

    What is At Risk and Overweight?

    What is At Risk and Overweight?

    As I just mentioned in the introduction, my name is Joshua Rivers, and this podcast is basically an audio journal of my journey back to better health.

    To be truthful, though, I’ve never really been healthy - I just had a high metabolism until my mid-twenties that caught up to me. I went from 190 pounds in early 2008 to 294 pounds in early 2020.

    I’m basically on a journey to lose almost 100 pounds and get my overall health away from being “at risk” as much as possible.
