My motivation was to reduce my risk of developing diabetes and to feel physically healthier and more attractive. I wanted to find a reliable, consistent and cheap way to do this without having to endure hunger, take on unsustainable diet or exercise regimes or take unnatural drugs.

Through research and experiment on myself I was amazed to find a very simple and well understood biochemical principle (the insulin response) which when applied to diet (specifically the glycaemic index and glycaemic load of what we eat) has a profound effect on how fat we are and stay. Part of what I found so incredible is that despite the wealth of information in the media and huge array of nominally healthy foods we find in supermarkets this simple piece of information and its overwhelming significance over and above all the other healthy eating messages out there had not gotten through. In fact there are quite contradictory messages and virtually all the convenience food choices (even the ostensibly healthy ones) available to us keep us fat.

Several family members, friends and acquaintances noticed my weight loss and asked how I’d achieved this so I set up this site as
(i) somewhere to refer them to – so they had somewhere to go after they’d forgotten what I told them!
(ii) a record of my findings in the hope that it might benefit the wider community
(iii) an experimental business to educate people on a few basic facts about nutrition and biochemistry whose application to one’s diet alone can have a profound impact on obesity – possibly the most significant epidemic in the ‘developed’ world.

I went from over 92.9kg (205 pounds, 34.7% i.e. 32.2kg fat) to under 66.6kg (147 pounds, 18% i.e. 12kg fat) in 7 months i.e. of the 26.3kg I lost most (20kg) of the weight loss was fat. My muscle reduced a little from 30.1% (28kg) to 39.1% (26kg) however that is a healthy level of loss given I no longer have to haul so much superfluous weight around (which was also putting damaging levels of strain on my joints and tendons and causing other health/quality of life problems).

Of course I should probably include the usual disclaimer that I’m not medically qualified or a nutritionist and that you should see your doctor if you have any concerns that you may have a medical condition affecting your weight or diet before starting to lose weight.

The fact is though that you can forget about worrying that you have a fat gene or low metabolism or are too lazy to spend hours each week exercising. Your body’s designed to gain and lose weight easily to deal with periods of excess and paucity in nature’s bounty of available food and, with a little understanding of how your body works, the very same natural drives you instinctively followed to get to your current weight will get you to any weight you choose to be. In fact you’ll lose weight scarily fast and have to consciously decide not to drop below the weight that’s healthy for you.

Good luck – though you really don’t need it if you read and then follow the handful of tips we have. There’s a shedload of stuff on losing weight – on the net, TV, books and magazines – and a host of companies who’ll claim to help you but I’ve tried to distil the information that helped me into a handful of tips you can read in a few minutes so just start in that section!

All the best,

Nik

What video camera does HubNut use?

If you’ve ever watched the HubNut YouTube channel’s videos and been captivated by Ian Seabrook’s enthusiasm you might have wondered what equipment he uses to allow his natural talents to shine – just enough technology for low quality production values not to become irritatingly distracting in the end product but not so much that it takes away from the immediacy of the recording process.

Turns out it’s just a smartphone..the Oppo F1s and more recently the Samsung Galaxy S8. Check out this video where Ian describes it (35 seconds in):

HubNut Q&A (video camera)

Video camera HubNut uses

The mount is from VacMounts.com with a cheap eBay mobile phone holder

HubNut other video equipment

From the same video the microphone is again a cheap eBay lavalier one with a fur windscreen

If you know what he uses for editing or capturing other footage and ‘B roll’ – maybe you recognise gear like dash cams, gimbals, mounts, tripods and GoPro type devices seen in his many videos – please do leave a comment below, ideally linking to a clip where you’ve seen the equipment.

Looks like a DJI Osmo Mobile 2 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer Gimbal For iPhone Android Phone used with a Samsung Galaxy S8 (2 circles right of the ear speaker while the S9 has one)

The dash cam footage footer shows it to be a Nextbase Duo HD Dash Cam (Full 1080p Front and Back Dual Lens)

As a journalist Ian seems to have used various still cameras over the years including a Canon S3 IS (compact ‘bridge’ camera with 10x optical zoom) from 2007, Canon Powershot SX10IS (compact bridge with 20x optical zoom and fold-out screen) bought in 2009, a Canon 1000D (DSLR with interchangeable lenses) bought in 2011 and a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ70 (compact 30x optical zoom, low light – high sensitivity MOS sensor) bought in 2016 which he describes here: https://hubnut.org/2016/03/21/new-camera-time/

I admire Ian’s intellect, honesty and real value for money approach and it looks like that extends to his choice of camera gear – spending money where it matters and makes an appreciable difference to the final experience.

Hope this helps! and for more cheap truths about free ways to lose weight see the other posts on my blog http://www.gichow.com.
