What up world?!?! Long time since I’ve posted a REAL blog. But I have something special for you in this article. I was asked a good question by my uncle Jay, and the question was available for everyone to see on one of my many facebook wall posts. I say it is a good question because I questioned it myself while on the program. Here is the question from my uncle Jay.
I have too much to do to sleep. Watch the video as I explain to you what I mean. I know I need sleep for my health, but 5 solid hours of sleep is good for me right now. If you have any suggestions of comments please leave them below. THANKS! If you want to […]
What up world!! Just recorded this short film after a really tough resistance workout, which explains why the camera is so shaky. This Monday morning I didn’t want to wake up, the alarm went off at 430am and I hit the snooze. I almost didn’t wake up, but then this thought went through my head, […]
Waddup world!!! Long time since I’ve blogged!! The tax season has me working like a maniac!! But I’m still here fighting the war!! I am at a comfortable weight now. I weigh 220 pounds and it feels awesome. I remember when I weighed 300 pounds and I just wanted to be less than 250 pounds. […]
This is my video for weeks 12 and 13. It was much of the same until I decide to end the negativity. The past few weeks have taken their toll on me and I’m over it. Enough is enough. I’m ready to get back on track. So I decided that this is it. I will […]
I don’t know… that’s what comes to mind about this past week. I’m not eating well, not exercising, not doing much of anything to take care of myself… Thanks for watching! If you have any suggestions of comments please leave them below. THANKS! If you want to follow my journey, please subscribe: I’m on Facebook […]
Not a good two weeks… Ended February on a bad note and began March even worse. I feel like I am out of control… I did not eat my Nutrisystem foods, I did not work out. Ugh. Thanks for watching! If you have any suggestions of comments please leave them below. THANKS! If you want […]
Hey guys, here’s week 8. Another not so good week, but I have been getting some bodyweight workouts in. I feel like this week is kind of chaotic, but I know I’ll be fine once I get back to my regular routine of things. This is a long journey and I won’t be letting this […]
Hey guys, here’s week 7. It wasn’t a great week. I feel like a failure for not working out as much as I normally do and for eating more snacks than I normally do. But I can’t do anything about that. All I can do is move on and not let it erode my progress. […]
It’s week 6 and it was a struggle! The week started off good on Monday, but after that it was hard for me to find motivation to exercise. I managed to fight through the mental barrier that I always face. I don’t know if it’s burnout or what, but I managed to fight through it. […]
It’s week 5 and I feel amazing! That’s right. I had a great week. Last week carried over into this week and I managed to stay consistent. I ate my Nurtrisystem foods, veggies, fruits, protein and worked out like a beast. This week’s vid covers how I felt, some clarification on how long I’ve been […]
Week 4 is in the books! I had another really good week. I was extremely consistence across the board, from my eating to my exercise. And it feels great! I feel like I’m on a roll and want to keep it going into next week. My daily decisions have been for the best and that […]
Hey guys here’s week three. I had a great week this time! I ate right, I exercised and I felt good as a result of it. I tried to focus on ending the laziness in my life, in tiny steps. It was successful for me. I’m hoping to keep up this great feeling and ride […]
What up world?! It’s your number one weight loss soldier Frank C, from Fat Man Unleashed, and I have five weeks left on mission, “Death to the Yo-Yo Life”. I finished the first four weeks of my nine weeks to be unleashed on BistroMD, and I have had great results. I lost eight more pounds […]
Hey guys here’s week two. I had a slow start to the week. I didn’t eat right 100% of the time and my workouts weren’t amazing, but I did manage to do something and eat most of my Nutrisystem foods. So I need to improve on what I did, since I actually did something. It […]
Hey guys, I’m starting something new that I plan on sticking to this time. I don’t know why this time I feel like it will be different, but it does. I’m tired of the yo-yoing. So this will be a weekly weight loss video diary I plan on keeping. I’ll be covering my journey and […]
I’ve been eating Nutrisystem for about two months now. My favorite dinner is the lasagna. Here I show you how quick and easy it can be to make a Nutrisystem meal including some raw vegetables in less than 4 minutes! I was rushing to prepare my dinner because I had to workout shortly after. As […]
This is just s short video showing the different Nutrisystem foods in my pantry. Color-coded by meal-type for easy management. Blue is for breakfast, pink is for dessert/snacks, green is for lunch, and red is for dinner. They offer a wide variety of food to choose from. Did I mention how much I love sloppy […]
That’s right. I go shirtless. I made this video back in July and haven’t gotten around to posting it. But I figured I’d do it since NO ONE is going shirtless in the weight loss blog world until AFTER they have lost the weight, and that includes Muata!!!
About 30 days ago, June 23rd 2009, I challenged myself. I was to perform one unassisted chin up by August 1st. I recorded myself not being able to perform a chin up, as proof. I then did some band assisted chin ups, three reps, for the first time ever. Not being able tp perform a chin up was pretty embarrassing, but the way I look at it is that I have a ton of room for growth. And I will show growth!
About a month ago I called out Muata, from Mr. Low Body Fat, to a fitness challenge. Initially it was supposed to be that I had to perform one full chin up by a certain date. That’s when I set up to work on my chins ups and pull ups. For the life of me I could not pull myself up. At 300+ lbs (mostly fat), it’s pretty much impossible for anyone to this. There are those few exceptions that can do it but they mainly have massive amounts of muscle that comprise their 300 lb frames. I am not a strongman, I’m just a normal fat guy.
I was in the backyard working out with my wife when my daughter started imitating what we were doing. We were performing burpees when my daughter just started busting out some reps! I think she has decent form for a kid that has never done burpees before. She basically has the squat (frog), kick back, and jump mastered, now she needs to work on her push ups.
I recently went to the Arby’s in Wesley Chapel, FL. I was in the area with a buddy and we were HUNGRY! So this being the real world, we decided to stop in and eat some fastfood at Arby’s instead of McDonald’s. I made this video that day a few weeks ago. The point is […]
Is there such a thing as over dieting? Feeling guilty for eating even the slightest of foods? Not eating at all? Well, I’ve been feeling really guilty after eating just about anything. It’s almost like I want to not eat. I know better than that, I’m just talking out loud. Watch the video so that […]
Back in junior high school I was a typical fat kid. Uncomfortable in my own skin, I took the joke a science teacher once told and tried eating paper to lose weight. Now this isn’t a case of pica or some other eating disorder, I only tried it for a few days before I decided […]
A few weeks ago I was in California on some Fat Man business. My host suggested we take a drive to the Santa Monica Stairs. I had no idea what that was, but he said it was one of the most grueling workouts in Santa Monica. From what he said it reminded me of the […]
I love chocolate cake. Always have and always will. It’s the devils food! Full of sugar. But it tastes so damn good with a tall glass of milk. Mmmm…I can taste it now. Chocolate cake can be a weight loss diet disaster food if you don’t control yourself. Some say to stay away from it […]
Earlier this year I sat down and had a heart-to-heart with myself. I looked at my weight chart, saw the trends and had an epiphany of sorts. I haven’t seen this since I recorded it, but I felt it would help if it was posted. It deals with consistency and getting on track. I happen […]
It’s Sunday people! Eat your carrots! What do Sunday and carrots have in common? A fat man eating them on a Sunday of course. Duh! Okay, so I’m feeling a little silly. Check the video out. I really, really, really enjoyed eating that baby carrot. It was juicy. They all were. Carrots make a great […]
I don’t know why, but every so often I feel like there’s a ghost working out in my gym. It’s creepy. I wake up and the door is wide open. Taunting me. Check the video out and let me know if I’m just bugging out or what. Either there’s a ghost in my gym or […]
That’s right. KFC Chicken is gross. Well, to be more specific, the breaded skin is gross. Take a look at the video I made above after helping my brother move. The side salad was fresh, but the chicken skin was outrageous. I peeled the breaded skin from a breast and drumstick and all that excess […]

In this ground breaking, earth shattering, myth busting, conventional wisdom destroying video interview I was fortunate enough to sit down with someone that has great insight into the health, fitness, and exercise world as we know it. The following is a video interview I conducted about two weeks ago. The most interesting comment is that […]
