Mike continues his conversation with Kirk Hunt who had his procedure more than 7-years ago. Kirk talks about moderating the Bariatric Bad Boys Club support group on Facebook and why it is different from other groups (link below).  They discuss the one thing that could be a major selling point for the procedure for men but not many people talk about...but they do!  Mike also learns the one thing bariatric people ask that makes Kirk lose his zen-like nature. We also have the BBros' Shout Out and Mike has a craving for the latest Chaffle of the Week!NOTE: There is some strong language and frank discussion of men's sexuality in this episodeThis Week's BBros Shout Out goes to: GregoryGive a follow on his IG at: https://www.instagram.com/barbasecas/You can nominate a Bariatric Bro for a Shout Out by emailing us at bariatricbros@gmail.com, send us a DM on our socials or text us.

Then cover with shredded mozzarella and top with your favorite toppings and sprinkle a bit more mozzarella cheese.  Note: cut your toppings up nice and small so you can get good coverage.  Place under broiler or in toaster oven and cook until cheese is melted.  Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!  Enjoy...Steveithechaffleguy says:  Make some of the chaffles up ahead of time and freeze them. Then pop them in the toaster and add your toppings and you have quick pizzas anytime you feel the need...Check out our IG or FB for a picture of this weeks finished chaffle here!For more chaffle goodness, visit Steve I The Chaffle Guy on IG https://www.instagram.com/steveithechaffleguy/  OR on FB: https://www.facebook.com/steveithechaffleguy/Visit our website at https://www.bariatricbros.com/Follow us on all the socials @bariatricbros Email us: bariatricbros@gmail.comText us: 443-356-6779Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/bariatricbros)
