: Episode 901 - Vinnie & Andy talk about an article indicating that toddler obesity is on the rise and that the culprit is possibly formulas, as well as poor prenatal diet by the mothers...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

TODDLER OBESITY

  • Vinnie and Andy read an article
    • Discusses rising obesity in toddlers
  • Obese toddlers begin showing signs of heart failure by age 1
  • Dr. Lustig has been yelling about this forever
    • See video below
    • He wrote a book about this!!
  • Nearly all overweight babies bottle fed
    • Most fed with formula
    • One of most popular/healthiest ones
      • Nonfat milk
      • vegetable oil, palm
      • whey protein concentrate
      • lactose
      • galactooligosaccharides
      • polydextrose, more chemicals  
        • This is all plain BAD
          • From non fat milk to artificial sugars
      • A lot of other brands made of soybeans
        • Even worse!
  • Babies also come out of the womb very fat
    • Prenatal care is not up to par
    • Eat well while you are pregnant!
    • You need a license to drive a car, you should likewise have training on how to live/eat while pregnant/before having a baby
    • Must understand the responsibility you are taking on 
  • Parents need to educate themselves on the bad effects of sugar in child growth 
    • This issue is just getting worse, we have to stop!

: Episode 900 - Vinnie explains to Anna how to do proper squats and the proper form for lunges.  They also discuss kayaks, a very strange Twitter exchange with a religious person and much more...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

SQUATS

  • Go down slowly, that's what it's all about
  • Vinnie doesn't go heavy any more
  • Keep your toes slightly pointed out 
  • Great for booty, quads, hamstrings, lower back
  • You may not feel like you're doing anything without going heavy, but it WILL do something
  • Vinnie will spend lots of time warming up 
    • Slowly add weight 
  • Lunges are another easy exercise that many people do incorrectly 
  • Vinnie runs Anna through the steps

PRAY THE CELIAC AWAY

  • Some IDIOT on Twitter said that you can pray celiac away
  • Anna tries not to get involved with things like this, but this she couldn't ignore
  • Apparently in the 80s, a prayer diet existed
    • "Pray your fat away"
    • This was weirdly popular
  • Shows how desperate people are to get healthy!
  • Anna does pray, but this has to deal with science, not with religious
  • Anna was told, after responding on Twitter, she was 'unforgivable'
    • All silliness
    • Then he started jabbing Anna for acting, etc.

KAYAKING

  • Vinnie plans on kayaking Bayou Lafourche
  • He will be practicing on Lake Castaic
  • All thanks to a really good man, friend and fan, Dave Dolak

 

Sep 17, 2017

FAST BREAKFAST

  • Eggs really don't take much more time than cereal prep

  • Cheesy eggs are delicious!
  • You can mix in avocado, beans, bacon, tomatoes into eggs

Intro to NSNG

Sep 16, 2017

: Episode 898 -  (NOTE: This is a repeat of episode 875 which aired on August 12th.) Listener David shares his NSNG success story where he loses 47 lbs in 4 months (his wife lost 23!) and talks about how going NSNG is like paying off debt (a la Dave Ramsey).

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

LISTENER DAVID

  • David is NSNG
  • Found Vinnie and the Facebook group via a friend who was showing continual progress
  • David topped out at 334 lbs, has so far lost over 40 lbs in 4 months!
    • Realized he needed to do something
  • He and his wife framed their NSNG lifestyle change around Lent
  • It has been going very well and hasn't been difficult for David or his wife
    • Unlike the Atkins diet, they do not have cravings with this way of eating

PAYING OFF DEBT

  • Just like debt, when you get to a certain point in gaining weight, you know you are in for the long haul
  • You have to commit, piece by piece, to paying it off or losing it
  • The last part can often be the hardest, but you gotta keep making payments and decreasing that load 
  • Just like money and spending, people can eat and eat crap past a healthy point until they are so far in that it is hard to get out 
  • David paid his debt off in several years, did very well!
    • Now taking care of the weight and his health
  • David also has been investing quite a bit!
    • Invests in simple mutual funds
Sep 15, 2017

STOLEN GOOD INTENTIONS

  • One man, Michael, nearly destroyed Vinnie in one day
  • This guy pretended that Vinnie supported his product
    • He tied Anna (a different Anna) into it to make it seem like Vinnie was in on it
  • This guy had mentioned Cate Shanahan to Vinnie to seem legit
  • We've used this guy before to help get OUR product out
    • Now he completely used Vinnie to promote a product Vinnie has NEVER heard of and does not endorse
  • Naori Organics are sh**!
  • Vinnie just wants to help people, and this guy just did a 180 on him
    • Pisses Vinnie off to no end
    • This is what Vinnie wants to PREVENT
  • Vinnie only supports products he believes in so when this happens, it really upsets Vinnie because he does not want people to buy crappy products
    • Make sure Vinnie has really endorsed a product before you go and buy it! Ask him about it on Twitter, etc.!
  • Vinnie apologizes for what happened
    • His good intentions were stolen

: Episode 895 - Vinnie and Anna talk about whether "organic" snack foods such as "organic Cheetos" or other "all-natural" snacks like the Rx bar are really any better for you...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

PURE COFFEE CLUB

  • Trying to make high quality company
  • Vinnie has come up with his own roasts
  • Gonna start with three roasts
  • We get the best beans from around the world
  • We are taking super nice, generally expensive coffee, and making it affordable!
  • Look out for happenings in the future

NSNG

  • Vinnie is making a comprehensive FREE pdf about NSNG
  • He believes that this information should be free because he genuinely cares about peoples' health and lifestyles
  • PDF coming in a few days HERE

ORGANIC CHEETOS

  • In most cases, making things "organic" does not make them better for you 
    • Frito - Lay company
  • Whole Foods will be selling them
    • Another messed up Whole Foods thing
  • Totally junk food 
  • Still all grain, maybe fewer chemicals, will still make you fat because it's straight carbs
  • They essentially put the "organic" label on there so that places like Whole Foods can get away with selling them
  • Same thing as Coke making Coke with real sugar
  • An example of "shining turds"
  • Rx bar is marketed as healthy but is still incredibly unhealthy
Sep 9, 2017

: Episode 894 - Listener Dan calls in to talk about his NSNG success and to ask the question "will exercise stunt my kids growth?" and "what age can I start them on exercise?"

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

LISTENER DAN

  • Found Vinnie via the Carolla effect
  • Vinnie answered every Twitter question Dan ever asked him
  • He has been NSNG for 4 months
  • Has lost over 20 lbs
  • Always tried fads, but now has done this lifestyle change successfully 
  • Has two young sons, 9 and 11
    • Both have autism, but both very high functioning
      • Mild forms, high functioning
        • Social quirks 
          • Older one, very sensitive and this turns into anger, also a bit of a loner
            • Amazing memory, amazing talent 
          • Younger one, will just shut down when he gets frustrated 
      • They are still in a normal classroom, mainstreaming is great for them 

STUNT MY KIDS GROWTH

  • Kids don't need to do heavy, intense, muscle-building exercise
    • Ex: lifting weights not necessarily the best for your kids
  • If they want to run, if they want to do some martial arts, that is all great
    • Can also be good for them hormonally 
  • "Formal exercise", not yet 
  • Exercise should be body movements 
    • His gym has kid size rower, kid size elliptical next to adult machinery 
      • All of this stuff is good
        • Make competitions out of it 
  • Worst thing we are doing to kids is not letting them play or move around
Sep 8, 2017

: Episode 893 - Dr. Michael Shermer joins Vinnie to discuss several interesting topics such as skeptics, religion, psychics, and a shared connection with the Badwater 508.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

DR. SHERMER

  • Does a lot of work in the sphere of morality 
  • Publisher of Skeptic magazine
  • Has written a number of books, including The Moral Arc
  • While he discusses a lot of morality, religion, and less tangible things, he also believes that science is incredibly important 
  • Also very into health and fitness 

SKEPTICS

  • Lots of cultural elements involved with religious
  • Finding meaning in random things
    • Auditory, visual illusions 
  • People can make signs out of nothing 
    • The patterns, the illusions, the non-randomness all in our minds
      • Really it is random 
  • Veganism - another thing to be skeptical about
    • PETA doesn't care about your health, they only care about animals (and even then that's questionable)
  • The Standard American Diet is another thing to be skeptical about
    • Gary Taubes is a truther 
  • Psychic shows are also largely BS
    • They only select out of 12 hours, about 45 minutes that confirms their "psychic prowess" 
    • They figure out patterns and generalities 
    • Dogs have good intuition, too
  • Usually "spooky" things, or things that seem to good to be true, are just that 

DIET AND RELIGION

  • Many people treat diet as a religion
  • Just like old time religion, certain food is taboo, etc.
  • People also get this attachment to food similar to some's attachment to food
  • There is a church of food
  • This also can make breaking bad eating habits more difficult

 

Sep 6, 2017

: Episode 892 - Andy reads a question from listener Sharona (yes, Vinnie plays the song) about food hacks. She wants to know whether she should eat something with high fat after ice cream or avoid fat for the rest of the day...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

VINNIE'S LOOK

  • Andy doesn't like the glasses, beard, hat look
  • Covering up too much!
  • Hasn't shaved because Serena is not in town
  • His glasses are for glacier climbing - why he is wearing them in his office is a whole other question

FOOD HACKS

  • Sharona asked a question about fat after high carb whoopsie 
  • She had some ice cream (LIL), should she then follow up with olive oil or some fat or what?
  • The French Paradox!
    • Wine with cheese example
  • Not really a simple answer
  • Ann Childers did a little experiment with this
    • Had some cheerios with non-fat milk, blood sugar shot way up
    • Had some cheerios with heavy cream, not nearly as much of an insulin response
    • Now this won't let you lose weight, but it is an n1 experiment
  • Fat is the most sating thing!
  • At baseball games, have some peanuts, eat a sausage out of the bun 
  • Don't think you can mitigate eating crap by eating some olive oil etc.
  • Don't try to "hack" a healthy lifestyle
Sep 4, 2017

: Episode 891 - Vinnie tells Anna about a time some college kids came up to him and told him he had an old man's face but a young man's body... Plus they talk about another Whole Foods debacle, high school reunions, La Croix and much more.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

NFL PLAYER VS STRIPPER

  • Vinnie and Anna will take a health or fitness word and play a fun game
  • More like an NFL player's name or a stripper's name 
  • Today's word: amenorrhea 
  • Verdict: stripper

WHOLE FOODS DEBACLE

  • A woman forget to put something she grabbed and put on the bottom of her cart onto the conveyor belt
  • She offered to pay, and still interrogated
    • She was banned
    • Absolutely ridiculous
    • This family was spending around 30k a year there, and forgot to check out WATER 
    • Means someone was watching, waiting for her to mess up
  • A friend of Anna and Vinnie was caught eating cashews and was detained and then banned

VINNIE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION

  • Vinnie and two friends were the only ones who looked better than they did in highschool
  • They all worked out a ton 
  • After 10 years, they looked as though they had de-aged 
  • After that night, Vinnie knew he wanted to keep up his hard workout regiment 
  • 20 year reunion, the differences were considerably more drastic 
    • Reaffirmed again 
  • Sad for Vinnie to see his old friends with developing health problems as they gained weight

YOUNG MAN'S BODY

  • Bunch of college guys kept eyeing Vinnie and Serena
    • Vinnie thought they were eyeing Serena because of her movies
  • In fact, they were talking about Vinnie because he had an old dude's face but a young dude's body
  • They asked his age 
Sep 3, 2017

: Episode 890 - Vinnie and Andy talk about how the Presidential Physical Fitness Award exercises are a great way for kids to stay active and physically fit on this Vinnie's Sunday School edition of the Fitness Confidential podcast.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

FITNESS TESTS

  • In schools, many schools had fitness tests
  • Some states have these tests, others don't
  • Used to be a national requirement
  • We should push to get these back in schools!
  • Kids, you can do this at home
    • Presidential Physical Fitness Awards
  • It can be super fun to do these little tests and learn all the exercises
Sep 2, 2017

: Episode 889 - Vinnie and listener Jim talk about their frequent TSA pat-downs, testosterone replacement, distilled spirits and much much more!

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

LISTENER JIM

  • Found Vinnie through the Carolla effect
  • Vinnie doesn't back down when he knows he is right - that's a great way to be!
  • Jim really liked the straight forwardness of Vinnie
  • Used to live in CA, now in Idaho
  • Jim, because of his situation, has had blood pressure troubles
    • He had an artery explode in his head
      • It took the hospital multiple visits before they actual did something about his aneurism 
    • Jim could tell he was dying, but the hospital still would not do anything for a good while
      • He finally saw a specialist and found a doctor who would operate within hours of his potential death

TSA PAT-DOWNS

  • Vinnie and Jim both have a lot of experience with TSA Pat-downs, whether it be personal or related
  • Vinnie is especially the "sketchy" looking guy who gets searched
    • Largely because of his metal soldier
  • Frustrating especially because they are not the bad guys 

TESTOSTERONE

  • Because of his 'aneurism', he is concerned about taking testosterone replacement medications
  • Vinnie is not a doctor so could not say whether or not this would really affect his brain 
  • However, Vinnie finds that generally, testosterone supplements are BS 
  • Vinnie has lower T, but can still do everything a man with "high" T can do because he works at it and eats right

VODKA & MORE

  • Distilled alcohols are alright, as long as sugar is not added 
  • Stay away from beer - it is liquid pasta
  • Vodka, gin, tequila all alright 
    • Mix it with La Croix!
Sep 1, 2017

 

: Episode 888 - Dr Tim Noakes joins Vinnie to talk about his trial, his upcoming book Nutrition on Trial, the truth about the effectiveness of statins, and more.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

DR TIM NOAKES

  • Check out his website here!
  • Believes in the good of LCHF
  • South African doctor
  • A writer of some really incredible books
    •  Check them out here
    • One of Vinnie's favorite is Waterlogged
      • There is no set amount of water that one person should drink
      • Different for every person
      • You can actually drink too much water!
  • Noakes had to go through a really difficult trial because he advised a low carb high fat diet to a patient
  • He was, of course, found innocent of doing anything wrong 
  • His new book is about the trial, called Nutrition on Trial
    • About all of the smear-attempts, and the trial itself
    • Marika helps him out in this 
    • Also talks about how low carb is real good for the insulin resistant
      • Hopes it will help young doctors change the 'typical' ways 
  • Came across low carb because he changed his lifestyle, began running a lot
    • He felt awful when he ran
    • Saw some evidence on the Atkins diet, changed to a low carb diet
      • Has had no sweets and incredibly limited carbs over the last number of years
        • Now, his health in general is SO much better
  • Has done a lot of good research, as well
  • Prosecutors went against the constitution just to get Dr. Noakes to trial
    • It was such a pointed and nasty prosecution
      • They just didn't want any ideas that contradicted with their own financial gain gaining traction just like Noakes' ideas were 
  • The whole trial seemed like a joke because it was so fabricated and ridiculous
  • Sugar kills
    • Frightens Dr. Noakes to see how people are hurting themselves on the inside, even though for about 20% of the population nothing changes on the outside

STATINS

  • Does not believe in the hype around statins
  • Cholesterol is not as simple or as bad as the industry tries to make it 
  • Statins really are not beneficial 
  • The side effects truly make it not worth it
    • Not reported because the industry controls the results
Aug 30, 2017

: Episode 887 -  Andy asks Vinnie whether or not the yummy paleo crackers he bought are really low carb and NSNG.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

PALEO CRACKERS

  • This are called "Paleo Thin Crackers"
    • From Julian's Bakery
  • GMO free, Gluten Free, etc.
  • Filtered water, blanched almond flour, cassava flour, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt
  • A good paleo snack
  • Pretty crunchy
  • Doesn't seem like there is actually water in there
    • Maybe a lie?
  • Cassava flour is also not the best thing...
    • Even the Livestrong Foundation agrees with this
    • It's a starch
      • Similar to rice 
  • If you want something crunchy, make cheese chips! 
    • On skillet, in microwave, in oven
      • You can use all types of cheeses!
  • You can make crackers similar to this but without the cassava flour
Aug 28, 2017

: Episode 886 - Vinnie tells Anna about his Mt Whitney hike debacle with his nephews who seemed to live on Swedish Fish and Gatorade...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

SWEDISH FISH

  • Vinnie decided to go on a hiking trip with his two nephews and friend, Don 
  • His two nephews, one who is a freshman in college and the other who is a few years older, came to LA
  • They are from Louisiana so had no experience with altitude whatsoever 
  • Don and Vinnie got passes to go and hike Whitney
  • One of Vinnie's nephews was in great sport-shape, and the other one had some extra weight on him
  • The boys did not eat NSNG, in fact they ate a diet of mostly carbs
    • For example, literally ate candy for meals 
  • The altitude proved tough for them
  • His fitter nephew had more trouble than his overweight nephew
    • Fitter nephew seemed to give up quite early 
      • Hayden
    • Overweight nephew did quite well, although he did not summit, he pushed himself
      • Steel 
      • Also, now he is going to try out NSNG because he is determined to come back and summit the mountain in the future!!
  • The only one who actually got to summit was Don Coddington!
  • There were old ladies passing Vinnie's nephews
  • After the nephews ate an incredibly carby meal, nobody went to sleep though they had to wake up at one to hike
  • Vinnie made some great coffee on his little traveling stove 
    • Don and Vinnie put in some heavy cream and a little coconut oil
    • Don is huge on intermittent fasting 
Aug 27, 2017

: Episode 885 - Vinnie & Andy talk about how jumping rope is a great all-purpose exercise and how many famous athletes attribute their success to training with a jump rope.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

JUMPING ROPE

  • Jumping rope is easy, quick, and fun!
  • You can get a lot out of jump rope
  • There are lots of tricks to learn and you can do it almost anywhere!
  • Also, double dutch is cool if you can get some other people to play with
  • It is awesome exercise and can always stay interesting
  • Buddy Lee is a guy you should look up - he is a super interesting man (and an amazing athlete/jump roper)
  • Jump rope can help with ALL of your other athletic pursuits
    • Vinnie thinks it helped him a ton with his football and could've helped him get his football scholarship!
  • Jump ropes are super easy to get - the ones from Buddy Lee are a little more expensive but super nice!
Aug 26, 2017

: Episode 884 - Vinnie talks to listener Lisa who has an absolutely fascinating life story and shares her battle with using weight as form of emotional protection...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

LISA PEREZ

  • Lives in NYC!
    • Brooklyn
  • Mostly Italian, but also an eighth Cuban
    • People can still rag on Italians!
      • Only group where you can still do that
  • Found Vinnie through Adam Carolla 
  • Both of her parents checked out when she was young
    • Her dad earlier, then her mom was really messed up too
    • She always had to help her parents, not the other way around 
    • Lisa learned from a young age how to be self sufficient 
  • She used to do phone sex for money
    • Also was a clown
    • Ended up going over to office work!
  • Lisa lived on her own on government money for awhile
  • Lisa learned how to use her weight as protection

WEIGHT

  • Lisa is now NSNG
  • She has learned how to no longer use food for emotional protection
    • She is comfortable with herself, weight is no longer her blanket
  • Good support for not using lbs as a protection on the NSNG Facebook page
  • A lot of people have sabotaged their good progress as a result of abuse
    • Self-sabotaging is pretty common but once you overcome it will feel so much better!
  • Now, Lisa has lost a bunch and has made real progress
  • Don't be afraid to make a change
    • Easier said than done, but do it one day at a time
  • On NSNG, you can eat food, you just can't eat BAD foods!
Aug 25, 2017

: Episode 883 - Author and nutritionist Amy Berger, MS, CNS, NTP joins Vinnie to talk about her new book The Alzheimer's Antidote which describes dietary ketosis as a treatment for Alzheimer's. She and Vinnie also discuss how sometimes people eat too much fat...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

AMY BERGER

  • Amy is an amazing luminary
    • A very good writer
    • Get serious about your health!
  • Big proponent of: You can't make things other people's problems, do what you have to do
  • "Tuit" - Get To It
  • Amy was in the Air Force
    • Integrity is doing what you're supposed to, even when nobody is looking
  • Reviews books, writes blog posts, her website is SUPER informational
  • She shares a lot of info from other luminaries in the LCHF field as well
  • Amy offers 30, 60 and 90 minute phone calls so that you can pick her brain
    • Check out this great service!
  • Amy has noticed, that for many, you cannot eat UNLIMITED fat even if you are eating low carb
    • For example, you don't need to put butter on top of your steak
    • Same with coffee, you don't need bulletproof coffee or coffee with a ton of cream if you're already eating bacon and eggs 
  • Make small adjustments
  • Fasting can be beneficial but only in the right circumstance

AMY'S NEW BOOK

  • This book, linked above, focuses on Alzheimer's
  • To some extent, this is likely a metabolic issue
  • "Type 3 Diabetes", "Diabetes of the Brain"
  • Energy crisis in the brain is the oversimplification
  • Amy presents a multi-pronged nutrition and lifestyle intervention that may help those with Alzheimer's to slow, improve, or even potentially reverse the disease
  • A ketogenic/LCHF diet can be a huge key to helping the brain get that energy that it so requires 
  • Get KETONE levels up!
    • Your brain can run on ketones (check out our recent Ketone podcast)
  • If we started to measure insulin (even if blood glucose is normal), we could likely detect Alzheimer's much farther in advance 
  • No matter how far gone you are, there WILL be some improvement if you stop doing things that are bad for you

Aug 21, 2017

: Episode 880 - Vinnie and Anna clear up any uncertainties about the difference between being in dietary ketosis or being fat adapted in NSNG...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

FAT ADAPTED

  • You can lose weight in both ketosis and just in NSNG Fat Adaption
    • You don't need to be in ketosis to lose weight
  • Ketosis is extra restriction of carbs so that your body is more-so running off of ketones 
    • Breaking down food into fatty acids
  • Fat adapted - your body will still run on fat 
  • Do what works for you
    • Some people like being in ketosis, others prefer not to limit carbs so much

: Episode 877 - Nurse Nicole Recine RN MSN and Vinnie discuss whether or not you should supplement protein and how many meals a day you should eat...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

SUPPLEMENT PROTEIN

  • You do not need to supplement with powdered protein if you are eating meat and veg
    • That will get you the protein you need
    • Many amino acids found in eggs!
  • Powdered protein is highly processed
  • Low Fat High Carb can cause bad hunger pangs that make you feel like you need more protein
  • Eating small meals keeps you hungry all day
    • "Wetting the appetite" with appetizers 
  • Three big meals a day, high fat low carb is what Vinnie and Nicole recommend!

COFFEE

  • Vinnie and Andy starting a coffee club
  • Have a couple different blends
    • Vinnie Blend, House Blend
  • Getting closer and closer to making the blends perfectly!
  • Coffee made different!
  • Still gonna be awhile before they are put out 

ITALIANS ARE THIN

  • Vinnie, Serena, and Tallulah just spent a bunch of time in Italy
  • They noticed that nobody was fat there!
    • Yes, not everyone was a super model, but very few people were actually unhealthily fat
  • A few observations
    • People walk more, work outside more
      • (However, people are not athletes)
    • The quality of the food is much higher
      • They don't make chicken with half soy like Subway does
      • The ingredients are well made and they don't add chemicals to everything
    • The portions of grains are smaller, but just as filling!
  • Overall, you just cannot get away with eating in the USA like they eat in Italy
