How are you #BodyPositive if you take probiotics?

Being body positive isn’t only for women. Even though I am a man, I realize that being body positive isn’t only being happy with your appearance, but being body positive means to take care of your body. I am 6 feet, 305 pounds (yes, I dropped some weight!) and I realize that I am never going to be a skinny man. The truth is I am absolutely fine with that. I don’t want to be slim. Imagine me skinny? My head is huge enough. I refuse to look like a bobble head.

What are probiotics?

I came across probiotics it was the weirdest thing initially. Why would I put bacteria into my body? It sounded nuts. I felt like someone was trying to sell me oceanfront property in Iowa. But after further research, I decided to give the probiotics a try. Hyperbiotics is a company that makes probiotics. I am very cautious as to what I put into my body. I don’t eat fish, seafood or pork. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of beef. It’s just on occasion I partake. So, when I found out the ingredients that probiotics used, I jumped for joy.

hyperbiotics, probiotics, https://www.hyperbiotics.com/products/better-body

Because of my size, I try to drink a gallon of water every day. So, I admit I am regular. I use the bathroom frequently. However, as I am taking the probiotics, I am a lot more regular than usual. I am pleased! Whatever toxins that are in my body definitely need to be removed. The more that I take them, I will definitely keep you guys informed. I am pleased with the results! But, so far I am feeling vibrant and I have energy when I am working out. There are a lot of components within the probiotics to benefit our bodies. Being conscious of what we place in our bodies is being body positive. So, far the PRO-15 and the Better Body are my faves!

Please stay updated! We are walking on this path together! Let me know what you think of probiotics.  Leave a comment or send an email to kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. It’s the Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Summer Time in New York City!

The weather in New York City has no been the greatest for me. I am a man that loves the heat! I can’t wait until summer hits. But, it’s like summer is taking forever. I can’t wait to carry a towel that matches my outfit. I am sure all men of size can relate to that! Towels are definitely a necessity! On those summer days that we crave, it isn’t uncommon to find an abandoned building and reminisce with friends in New York City. Those are some of the best times in my life.

Will This Style Box Work For Men Of Size?

Due to the recent clothing accommodations for big and tall, plus males and brawn men, I am very excited. It has become our duty and privilege to bring you the latest news in fashion and fitness routines for men of size. Have you ever seen style boxes and thought that you were too big for a style box? Have ou ever thought that you would love that opportunity?

Enter: The Winston Box

I had an awesome opportunity to speak with the owners of the Winston Box. The Winson Box informed me of their passion for providing clothing options for men of size and their sincerity in finding stylish and quality clothing!  “The Winston Box takes both its name and its inspiration from Sir Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and one of the most stylish men to ever grace the planet.” With a strong foundation, I am already on board.

“Our mission is to dispel the myth that style and size are mutually exclusive by being purveyors of fashionable clothing designed to fit and flatter the Big & Tall man.”

Personally, I like the clothes. The clothing is of good quality, the makers of the Winston Box went above and beyond. The Winston Box manufactures their own clothing! “Having complete control of the design, manufacturing, and distribution of our signature label, we can deliver high-quality garments and consistent sizing at a reasonable flat rate.” That’s exciting! I am sold! I need the curators to send a few more packages! Great work, Winston Box!

Olive?

It’s hard to believe that I am in olive. I thought I would look like a huge ninja turtle. Yes, as of late I am venturing into new colors. I know many other men of size can definitely relate to being restricted when it comes to wearing different colors. The weather is changing and I represent for all men of size that it’s perfectly fine to wear colors that are out of our “norm.” The weather in NYC has been weird. The weather feels like fall still. But, on one day the weather finally felt as if spring is coming!

I had some errands to run, but I was excited! I am not going to lie, I wanted to be seen! It sounds vain, but that wasn’t the case. I finally felt confident trying something different! Except for the boots! I needed something familiar. So, I paired the look with a popular look from my city. (I know some of my readers are chuckling because its like I can’t stay away from them. I am truly a product of my city.)

As Man Of Size, Have You Ever Felt Limited In Fashion?

In too many cases, I have obeyed the rules. I do believe at on point I stuck to safe clothing styles. As a man of size, I would choose to wear a polo shirt, an oxford shirt or a sweatshirt. I felt as if I couldn’t go wrong with these choices. At any time that you saw me, I was safe. As a big and tall/brawn/plus size man, I felt as if those were the only options available for me. I wouldn’t admit it before, but I will admit it know. To be totally honest, those clothing styles made me feel trapped. I felt extremely limited.

New Rules With ASOS

Many brands have ventured into making clothes for men of size. But, ASOS has had a few diverse clothing options for us! We are done with traditional looks for fashion for men of size! New York City has some of the best bottomless brunches on the planet and I made an appearance and represented for all men of size. The drinks were unlimited, but so were the looks. I am not a man who receives compliments often, but I felt like the fat version of Lance Gross!

I also paired this look with some boots from ASOS! I wasn’t aware that they carried large sizes. I wear a size 15, so when I see a brand that carries large size, I get very excited.

Sometimes we have to stop making excuses…

A lot of us make excuses as to why we cant work on the best version of ourselves. From a fitness stand point, we make excuses as to why we cant work out. “The gym is too far.” “The gym is too expensive.” Or the most famous line “I will start on Monday.” I know these lines, because I have said them myself time and time again. And at a point, I actually believed these lines. As a man of size, I definitely need to be more aware of my health. I don’t ever want to be skinny, I love my size and my weight. I just want to be alive for the long haul. So, I am trying to convince myself that these are excuses and will no longer be accepted.

Instead of making reasons as to why we can’t go to the gym, there are many items in our homes and playgrounds that we can use to benefit our bodies. For instance, the couch at home or the chair at the office can be used to our physical benefit. For some illustrated examples click the link here.

There Are Some Things On My Mind…

As many of you know, I have been on a journey trying to get to my goal weight of 300 pounds. Although I love my size, I think it’s imperative to be as healthy in my size. No, a certain size does not make you healthy. But, I want to make my best effort to me a man of size that is healthy. I want to change many of the perspectives and stereotypes that are damaging to the perception of men of size. We see that there are many athletes that share our structure and are more positive representations than the images and characters placed before us

New Goals!

By frequenting this blog, you may get the idea that I am obsessive at times. Yes, I am one of those weird people that get consumed with a project or a task that I am working on. Because of my weight, I chose to exercise via calisthenics. (I am well into my 300’s, that isn’t a secret.)I figure that I am heavy enough, if I can balance and navigate my weight, then I will be in a better position. It would make me stronger and I would be more comfortable with my body. There was an exercise that I could not do. At first, I felt defeated, but I remembered that we all have to crawl before we walk.

Let’s Walk This Road Together

So, now I am sharing my new goal with you all. I am trying to perform a static hold with one arm! I know that is extremely far fetched because of my size, but that is even more of an incentive to push forward! So, please walk with me! I am going to do my very best to reach this goal. It will be a milestone for me and I hope that I can share it with you. From the photos, you see that I have a looong way to go!

As seen on Plus Model Mag

I’m proof that you can be big AND healthy.

A few months ago, I went to the doctor’s office for a physical examination. After the nurse recorded my weight and vitals, she told me that she was impressed because I was “healthy”.

Then she asked me: “Can you tell your secret?”

I replied, “What secret?” to which she asked, “How are you that heavy and healthy?”

At the time, I was 324 pounds and I have to admit that her question offended me. But it was not a surprise.

Kavah King, Sarah Taylor

After the doctor conducted the physical exam, he handed me a sheet of paper and told me that I should see a nutritionist. As I left the office, I glanced at the sheet to see that the doctor had written on it that I was “morbidly obese.”
Sound familiar? We have all been led to believe that being healthy is only associated with a certain size and lean physique. If you’re overweight, you can’t possibly be healthy. However, I am proof that that belief is wrong.

I have never been a small man. It isn’t in my genetics. That doctor’s visit is something that has stayed on my mind and made me question a few things. Is the medical world basing their diagnoses solely on stereotypes? What does “healthy” look like? Just because I am a man of size, I am automatically viewed as unhealthy? There are many athletes that weigh more than me. Are they getting calls from the doctor that they are near death because of their weight?

I was curious as to how a woman might feel in this same situation so I spoke with my blogger friend and sometimes workout partner Sarah of Sarah Taylor’s Journey to get her thoughts on this topic of being healthy regardless of size. This is what she had to say:

I’ve always been plus – I came out of the womb at almost 10 pounds and almost 2 feet long and yet I have always been active. I’ve played sports most guys play – Football, Basketball, Ruby, Volleyball, running, etc. But for some reason, it shocks people that I can move the way I do and can keep up at the gym. I recently started working out at a new gym that offers Bootcamp style classes and on my first day, I got lots of looks that read “What’s this big girl doing in here?”. As I met new trainers each day, they would approach me to correct me and my form, and as they approached me they would back away, realizing that I have amazing form and can keep up. Why is it when people look at a plus size woman, do they think she can’t be fit? Does that mean I can’t be active, healthy and fit if I’ve got a little more meat on my bones than the size 2 working out next to me? Please …. let me out squat you!

There has to be a new standard that needs to be set. You cannot diagnose someone’s health by just looking at them. Both men and women of size are healthy and we do work out! No, I don’t want a six pack, but as long as I am healthy, I will be fine.

We don’t need your “encouragement”. I certainly don’t need to hear, “Go, big man”, as if it’s a major thing for me to be working out at my size. I don’t approach a smaller person and say “Keep going little fella!” We are all capable and our size does not indicate that we are unhealthy. It’s time to shatter stereotypes and move forward.

We need more options! Plus male/Big and Tall/Brawn clothing options that are needed. The Brandon Kyle menswear collection is one of the brands that are filling the void. Brandon Kyle is a designer that caters to men of size. In a time where men of size are being excluded by many designers and clothing companies, there are a few that decided to step outside of the box. When Brandon Kyle called me and asked me to sample some clothing from the denim collection, I jumped at the opportunity.

I was asked to sample the duster from the denim collection. To be honest, initially, I had some reservations about the duster. I did some research. I searched images on Google and I still wasn’t thoroughly sold. I didn’t think that a duster would look amazing on a man of size. After putting the reservation behind me, I got dressed.

The duster and the denim cargo was a great combination. I was on my way to a happy hour on a rainy day in Brooklyn, New York. (One of the best cities in the world, arguably the best. Pardon me if my perspective seems biased.) I threw on a blue hoodie that matched with the denim. It ended up looking great. The combination is definitely progressive!

Enter: MVP Collections

When I got the news that Mo’ Vaughn started a clothing line catered to plus males/brawn/big and tall men, I was absolutely excited. Mo Vaughn had a standout career in MLB. Here we have a man of size who is an established athlete and a champion. It’s only fitting that men of size are equated with this level of excellence. I felt honored to collaborate, especially because it shatters stereotypes that men of size aren’t gifted athletically.

     With MVP To Have To Do It BIG!

The Notorious B.I.G. was one of the best rappers but his career was cut short because he was murdered. The Notorious BIG was a man of size. The rapper embraced his size and help many people appreciate men of size who have ben viewed previously as sloppy, insecure and awkward. (Heavy D was another rapper who was known as the overweight lover. Heavy D was stylish, gifted lyrically and the ladies loved him.) I applaud the efforts that designers make to cater to what men of size. We are a bit tired of the old designs and tired of being limited to “traditional” styles.

At MVP Collections, Mo Vaughn made sure that the designs weren’t old. They weren’t just oxfords or polos shirts that brands that cater to men of size usually carry. Personally, I felt like I needed the heather gray t-shirt with a curved hem. Which is almost impossible to find at sizes 3x and up. Trust me! When I saw the shirt I almost did a backflip. Yes, all 300 pounds of me.  I searched for a while to find a shirt with a curved hem for men of size and MVP Collections answered the call.
