Today's guest Reid Jacobs lived my dream! While playing football, his coaches actually told him he had to gain weight. The problem is, when his days as a 300lb lineman ended, his eating didn't and he found himself 430 pounds. Reid's discovery of the Keto diet gave him the tools he needed to start to make change, but like most of us, his path is far from a straight line. We talk about the ups and downs, the ons and offs of it all, and how he is proud to be over 100lbs down from his heaviest and working on what comes next.  Connect with Reid on Instagram at @the_keto_guy!

To say John Oakes has lived an oversized life is an understatement, at 6’10” and once weighing over 600 pounds. A perfect storm of medical issues, medications, and certainly his relationship with food brought him to the brink of death but he found the strength to fight back. John’s story doesn’t end with his getting gastric sleeve surgery but in many ways just began as he saw success and then failure, until he discovered new tools he needed, namely the ketogenic diet and a strong gym ethic. John and I talk a lot about mindset, especially during these quarantine days, and finding community as he has in the Keto Man's Club on Facebook! You will be inspired by his story and will indeed learn why a mutual friend has dubbed him the Mighty Oak! Connect with John on Twitter & IG at @themightyoak77!

This episode has it ALL! If you define all as me talking with Miles Russell about our biggest fitness sphere social media pet peeves. Is this episode about YOU? Maybe... but most likely not! haha From the inability of some folk to perform a basic Google search to a dive into body positivity and fat acceptance, we pull no punches but do also provide a surprising amount of great info about these topics and our perspectives. This is more a "What not to do" than a "What to do!" episode and I think you'll enjoy it. We keep the whining to a minimum and try to show that each peeve does have possible solutions.

This episode of Fat Guy Forum is pretty different! We'll see what you think! I gathered your questions about my eating on my ketogenic weight loss journey after the last solo Gormy episode and took to the mic to answer them to the best of my ability.  A couple of caveats! First, I am no doctor or coach, what you get here is my opinion. Please look into the things that interest you and work with your doctor if you're going to make a dietary change! I dive into some of my original meal ideas and approach, and how I approach things now working with my Deeper State Keto Coach Jon Shane aka @theketoroad, we talk the challenges of approaching macros and keto science, and I even start to talk about what comes next for me.  I will say there were some tech issues, that I hope won't ruin the episode! There's an unidentified scratching noise I did my best to squelch. Instead of scrapping the whole thing I am pushing forward. We'll see how it goes, right?? I hope you find some interesting or helpful advice in this one! Find Gormy on IG at @gormy_goes_keto, Twitter at @gormygoesketo and you can email the show at  TheFatGuyForum@gmail.com!
