Russ Lane offers his Second Helping web site for weight maintainers

After years and years of life experience, most of us are pretty darn good experts at what we need to do to lose weight, but very few people are good at the whole weight maintenance thing. It can be challenging keeping your weight in check once you reach the weight you are comfortable at (something I know all too well!). And the biggest issue people deal with isn’t even physical, it’s mental. That’s something today’s podcast guest knows all too well as a former 350+ pound man who learned a lot about himself through weight loss and now continued weight maintenance.

In Episode 317 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from freelance journalist Russ Lane who created a fantastic web site called Second Helping to help people acclimate to a “normal” life after weight loss. It’s an often overlooked aspect of the equation but vitally important to long-term success. That’s why Russ, who ironically works as a food and dining critic, wanted to help people going through this transition.

Listen to Russ Lane discuss his 200-pound weight loss experience, the inferiority complex that happens to people who lose a significant amount of weight, the double standard that obese people have to deal with, the mental challenges that come after weight loss, Russ’ foray into low-carb diets and then switch to something else that worked for him, his challenges of being a food critic, the misunderstood nature of the Atkins diet, why Second Helping focuses on “after” weight loss primarily, why the mental aspect of weight loss is so important, his experience being a part of The Joy Fit Club on NBC-TV’s Today show, the “fate” that brought the contributors at Second Helping together, and a sample menu of the healthy gourmet meals he eats on a regular basis. Russ is an extremely likable guy who you will be encouraged and inspired by in today’s interview.
