Slimming Down Dad Episode 3: An Interview with Tom Adcock

This week on Slimming Down Dad, I sat down with Tom Adcock, via Skype, and talked about weight-loss. Tom and I have known one another for quite some time now, thanks to Stogie ReviewOpens in a new tab., but we haven’t spoken in well over a year. I recently learned that in that time Tom has been able to shed nearly 100 pounds.

In the interview, Tom and I discuss the metal side of weight-loss. In addition, we look at what it takes to create a sustainable diet that requires minimal exercise to shed unwanted pounds. Please don’t get too excited, this is no quick fix and takes a lot of time and dedication.

Episode 3 of Slimming Down Dad runs about 45 minutes. While this episode is a little longer than I generally aim for, I think it came together well and is worth the extra few minutes. Once you are finished listening, be sure to let me know what you thought in the comment section below. Your feedback is crucial to shaping future episodes.

  1. I hope people enjoy the episode. We could have went on for another hour. So much stuff in my head that I should have/could have said but didn’t think of at the time. Typical, even in cigar reviews.

    I’ve been telling people via email and word of mouth about this podcast. Stay with it, try not to obsess, and you’ll slowly learn how to manipulate your body’s metabolism. And I mean that literally. You’ll be in control, and when you slip, you’ll know how to regain control. It will just take some time, and a learning curve of figuring out what works for you.

  2. Great podcast guys, but where’s the damned cigar review? Just kidding, of course. I wish you the best of results in your endeavors.

    Tom, although we are both have Japanese genes (albeit mine being way older), it kind of depends on where you are from. As you said, it varies by individuals. My brother’s friend who is Okinawan himself, calls Okinawans the Japanese Samoams. Stockier and more big boned, not to mention hairier, and therefore prone to be naturally heavier. Apparently, that applies to neither of us, lol.

    Walt, thanks for sharing. You’re looking good!


  3. Good to here you again, good interview by both of you. Would enjoy your cigar comments as before. I hame back in Il., never did make it to St. Pete. May be next year.
