Fit to Fat to Fit (Old Guy Version) Fat DEXA Results

Fit to Fat to Fit FAT Joe Kennedy 100218Yesterday, I had another DEXA Body Composition Test at Body Comp here in San Diego.  It was more than a little embarrassing for me – but in a sick way, I earned the ‘results’.

For the past 100 or so days, I have been eating (mostly) like a freaking pig.  Instead of my usual (fairly) clean diet (I call it a Live-It), I’ve been consuming pizza, ice cream, cookies, cakes, pasta, and donuts. I even drank a couple of half racks of beer like the ‘good ole days’.  Between June 27th and October 2nd of this year (98 days), I gained 41.9 pounds – including 29.3 pounds of gross, ugly fat.

Not a pretty site – I didn’t enjoy it at all and feel like total crap because of it.  Not only have gained a belly, but also man-boobs I never thought that I would be cursed with.  My energy levels have tanked, I’m much more easily out of breath – and I even have to sit down to put my shoes on.  I only have one pair of shorts that fit me (they have an elastic band) – and no pants that do.  I’ve had to resort to wearing sweats on several occasions.  For me, there are a couple of things that hurt bad:  1) I hate having fat thighs that rub together when I walk (waddle) and 2) I’m fat enough that even my wife is grossed out.  Painful – and not necessarily in that order.  Here are the major differences in my DEXA results in less than 100 days:  Continue reading Fit to Fat to Fit (Old Guy Version) Fat DEXA Results

Fitness Genes: How to Submit DNA for a Fitness Genes DNA Test

Fitness Genes DNA Collection and Submission:  How To

I filmed this video about submitting DNA for a Fitness Genes DNA test about a month ago. This video shows how simple it is to provide a DNA sample for a Fitness Genes DNA test – it’s as easy as spitting into a collection tube and mailing it in!

What I didn’t realize is that it does take some time to complete the DNA sequencing – and the results do not come overnight.

I’m really excited to partner with Fitness Genes and write and vlog about my experience, using Fitness Genes technology to help with my workouts, nutrition and last leg of my old guy version of Fit to Fat to Fit.

Make sure to watch my next video where I talk about the results of my October 2nd DEXA, my Fitness Genes DNA results and how I am going to use them to get from Fat to Fit as an ‘old’ guy.
