Author, podcaster, and LLVLC team member Hank Garner is our interview guest today in Episode 1313 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Back in 2011 Hank Garner shared his success story of his incredible 130-pound weight loss success story, top-ranked interview-based iTunes health podcast called “My Low-Carb Journey” (named by Jimmy as one of the top 10 health podcasts every low-carber should be listening to in 2011), and running in half marathons while vastly improving his health while accomplishing more than he ever thought possible. Life was good.
But then it happened.
It’s funny how life has a cruel way of throwing us a curve ball every us every now and then when we least expect it. For Hank, that meant a diagnosis in 2011 of a degenerative arthritic condition where basically the cartilage in his joints was disintegrating. This led to a foot surgery that prevented him from being able to workout as he was used to doing. It was a depressing time for Hank who had found such confidence and energy from all of the things he was able to accomplish through his low-carb success story. Now all those rewards were crumbling around him like falling bricks and this led to an increase in stress, opening up of some old emotional wounds, and the predictable weight gain and decline in health that so many who have found success have experienced.
Listen in as Hank and Jimmy discuss being “the fat kid” growing up, all the “wake up call situations” that led to his initial low-carb weight loss success, the “crazy goals” he set for himself, the circumstances that took place in the midst of his “freak” genetic foot problems, the additional stress that came when he moved his parents next door to him, the scared and confused position he was in about how to climb out of the hole he was in, how his own personal arrogance about his 2011 success made him more vulnerable to the ultimate failure he experienced, the humility he took on in the healing process both emotionally and physically, how this experience impacted his faith in God, the inspiration and release he received by writing a fictional novel called Bloom, how he turned to nutritional ketosis in 2014 to start healing himself again, the instant results he began seeing when he got focused on doing this again, and so much more! If you’re one of the many who e-mailed Jimmy asking “Hey, where’s Hank Garner?” then you won’t want to miss this special update episode today.
