I just wanted to list a few podcasts that I've come to really like since the demise of Fat2Fit.

Half Size Me
Primal Potential
Tips of the Scale

I understand completely, Caren. I don't blame you at all. I haven't found a good replacement though.
Jeff did talk about his weight from time to time and he did say he was able to maintain. However, he did get sick and from the description, it sounds like something a friend of mine has, which isn't curable. I forgot the name of it but it happens when you have an injury and the nerves never stop registering the pain even though the injury is gone. I'm not saying for sure; they could have overlooked something.
There was a show where Jeff mentions a newsletter that he reads and says it is he gets a lot of his philosophy from. A listener mentions it in an email and Jeff acknowledges it. Does anyone remember the name of the newsletter?

The podcast lives on on the interwebs. And the info is still as good as before. Yet, I can't listen anymore. It just reminds me how I was left hanging.

I wonder about Russ and if he returned to his prior weight? He never played the guru for very long.
Jeff I believe was solid in his commitment, but he had recurring health issues that may have effected his commitment to physical exercise.

Jeff never talked about his own maintenance weight, but solely about Russ's.

Maintenance is where it is at! Maintenance is what it is all about!

I am 15 short of my goal of 175, and have been hoovering in the 190+- area for about two months now, but maintaining my 40 pound loss thus far.

Get good at lifelong learning.

Yep, Too Bad; but really since Jeff left, the chemistry wasn't there.....
I listen to the old podcasts, they are still entertaining and informative, but as they are not adding new material, have moved on as well....
We are all responsible for our own journey and I am grateful that they were there, but circumstances change for everyone.
Totally wish Russ and Jeff well, and they created quite a body of work that will stand!
I bought the book and Season 1, so it is quite a lot!
All I have to say is THANKS Russ and Jeff emoticon


Stay the course!!

That's what I do. I just listen to the old podcasts again. There are so many, they are still inspiring and I think they covered all they needed to cover. The podcast was a lot of work and a lot of time done for no wages. I appreciate what they did and I can understand it is time to move on, especially when you have kids in the picture.

Welcome Eyes! I found fat2fit just into their 2nd season and bought the first season soon after. I have since listened to each episode multiple times - Russ and Jeff definitely had a great combination. Thanks for your favorites; I keep hoping to find one that will fill that Fat2Fit gap.

You all make a good point. I miss the podcast, so why not re-listen to the old ones? I started listening several years ago and I know I'm in a different place both physically and mentally then I was before. It would be good to listen again and see what I pick up this time.

Bummer about Russ. I hope everything is okay.

Thank you, both of you! I am not listening to other fitness podcasts regularly at the moment, although I love the Quick and Dirty Tips network, including Get-Fit Guy. My favorite non-fitness podcasts are Mental Illness Happy Hour and You Made It Weird.

I do still have many of the old episodes of F2F to listen to, and buy the first season. I'm glad it's not "over" for me, yet!

Godzillaeyes....

Just listen to the old podcasts; all are there except season 1 and you can still purchase it I'm sure (I did in the spring; and the e-book) Russ and Jeff had such a rapport, it is still a pleasure to listen to them....
Plus, there is still tons of good info there....
Welcome!
I will add you as a SparkFriend too!

I just found the podcast a few weeks ago, and didn't realize it was no longer happening until today. Sad face! But I'm excited to find this group! I was wanting to find a smaller group so I could actually get to know some people, and I love the podcast so much that this feels like the place for me to be.

Hi Mtngoddess,

I'm taking a break from the scale right now because I was getting a bit too obsessive. Like I was yelling FU! if my weight was up. But, the last time I weighed in I was 172. I've lost lots of inches too, and I'm fitting into smaller clothes.

Russ has ignored all my efforts to reach out. Helena hasn't heard from him either. I miss the show. I was listening to it just yesterday. I think once Jeff left, well, they had such a good rapport it was hard to keep going on.

It takes a lot of time & effort to put on a podcast. I toyed with the idea myself, but don't think I have the motivation to work that hard for free. LOL! I have a YouTube channel. I think a podcast would be just one more internet phone to answer.

Hi Caren,

I'm wondering if you've checked in on your weight loss efforts with Russ at all, or did he leave you hanging? How's your progress? I miss hearing the updates on the podcast, but I guess it's time to move on. At this point, I should assume the podcast is over, right? I need extra motivation and support this time of year!

Yes, was listening to some of the old podcasts; really miss Jeff and Russ
But; still have them all to listen to again and again!

Have been listening to Evil Sugar Radio (iTunes) Great title; and sarcastic to the max!
Like the format (but it has some VERY poor production values; tinny, hollow sound) and good information from former vegan/vegetarian/paleo Nutrition guys....
very HIP and loose!

I still like Kira Langhoff 'Fit Girl' too......lots of good, practical tips on exercise, eating and coaching....



Stay the course!!

I will definitely check out Abel James. Thank you for the recommendation.

I also like to listen to Bodytalk by Bob Garvin and Intelligent Medicine and Healthtalk by Dr. Ronald Hoffman. They aren't geared to weightloss only but they talk about health studies as it relates to foods and supplements.

Healthtalk and Intelligent Medicine are pro low carb (salad and salmon diet, paleo, Mediterranean, etc) and heavier on the supplements rather than food but you learn a lot. Really, he doesn't solely push anything.

Bob Garvin gives you the latest studies and the results. His tone is very patronizing and annoying but you have to get past that. There is a lot of information and he gets to the point. If you like The Nutrition Diva (which I do), you will like him.

Any inspiring cooking podcasts? I really need some inspiration there. I hate to cook.

Thanks! I'll check out Abel James. I chatted with Dave Shapiro last night, who is doing well. He hasn't heard from Russ either.

I haven't heard from Russ in a very long time. I see Helena on Facebook often, and sometimes chat with her. She's doing great. I see Dave Shapiro on Fitbit, don't know how he's doing though.

I like Half Size Me. My only complaint is that it is heavy into weight watchers. But she is changing her program a bit and it is interesting to see how she changes.

I listened to a few Dr. Robs. but their "info" is full of flat-out false statements.


A really really good podcast is underground wellness. I also like fat burning man with Abel James.

Yes; I still like listening to the Jeff and Russ episodes as well.....I continue to listen to those and also;

I have been listening to FitGirl- Kira Langolf
https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/
fi
t-girl-your-guide-to-getting/id25859R>2484

Fitness, nutrition and motivation....and even though she is 'selling' her program (websites are always mentioned with training, etc) There is still enough info in the podcasts to make it interesting and I think truly helpful...

What other ones have you found?

Stay the course!!

Well, now another month has passed and still no podcast :(

I have found some other pretty good podcasts about health and weightloss, but F2F with Russ and Jeff is still my favorite.

Here's a podcast tip if you listen to a lot of them: if your podcast player allows, put the speed on 1.1x You'll be listening 10% faster but you can still understand everything they say. I feel like I'm really saving time when I do this, and I actually pay attention better!

It wouldn't surprise me. I'd be gaining weight too if I made the recipes she has linked to! They may be "healthy" if you eat very small portions, but I need recipes with lots more veggies so I can eat a lot :)
