: Episode 915 - Gunnar Lovelace, entrepreneur, founder and co-CEO of ThriveMarket.com tells his fascinating story of growing up poor in a commune and how that experience shaped his desire to bring healthy, carefully-sourced food to everyone for the same prices as regular food...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

GUNNAR LOVELACE

  • Grew up in Ojai
    • Mom Argentinian, Dad Spanish
    • Came in on his father's Fulbright Scholarship
    • Stayed in California with his mom
  • Has a very interesting name
  • His step father ran a food co-op
  • Tough for his mom to make healthy choices because they were expensive
    • Always prioritized healthy options
    • She also had great spirit and tenacity
  • Gunnar was inspired by his mother
  • Went to college, but started his own business
  • Wanted to create good company that can provide healthy, affordable food
    • Thus, Thrive Market was born!
      • Provides people with healthy food delivery for reasonable prices!

: Episode 914 - Vinnie and Certified Diabetes Educator Nicole Recine RN, MSN answer the question "What do I do when my doctor won't believe me?" after they've lost a lot of weight and their health is improved significantly...

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

MY DOCTOR WON'T BELIEVE ME

  • Difficult when doctors don't believe the results
  • For example, when you lose weight eating low fat and they tell you it'll make you fat and die
  • Doctors often just preach what they're taught in med school which is based off of SAD
  • Print out the new Vinnie Intro to NSNG PDF and show it to your doctor
    • Nicole says your doctor likely still won't believe you
      • Doctors won't listen - they think they know all even when they don't
  • Sometimes trying to convince your doctor is a losing battle
    • If it is helping you, helping your numbers, etc, then stick with it
  • Also, more and more low carb promoting doctors
  • Know the science behind it, know the scientists, stick to them
    • Doctors will tell you they're wrong without ever even hearing what they have to say
  • Dr. Atkins had the same issue - he lost lots of weight and people told him he was being unhealthy
    • Started doing the research, found lots of low carb high fat supporting doctors
Oct 9, 2017

  • Vinnie, Anna, and Andy all went to the NSNG meet up in Kansas City
  • Thanks to the Beauchamps!
  • People enjoyed meals, learned more about NSNG, everyone had fun
  • Live episode from Kansas City a week ago

DIETARY KETOSIS

  • Being fat adapted and being in dietary ketosis is a bit different
    • Both have effect of weight loss
    • You don't need to be in dietary ketosis to lose weight
  • Dietary ketosis - living on ketone bodies
    • Your body will make all the sugars you need
      • Won't lose sugar level 
        • Can convert proteins into sugar (gluconeogenesis) 
    • Vinnie is in ketosis because he had cancer and cancer feeds on sugar 
  • It can be useful and good!
    • Particularly those for most metabolically damaged

CHEATING IN NSNG

  • Don't think about eating carbs as "cheating"
    • It is a slippery slope
  • One little slip, like a piece of cake for your birthday or a glass of wine for celebration
    • Right after, get straight back on the wagon
  • This is a way of eating, not a diet
  • If you are fat adapted, have extra fat during the meal before you indulge and put life into living
Oct 7, 2017

  • They don't even taste good, in reality, but they are addictive
    • Vinnie and Andy both remember trying one and being like... "this isn't even that good", but once you eat a few, you can't stop
    • They also build up in your mouth
    • Give you a stomach ache, eventually
    • Vinnie had them a few times then swore off of them
  • Real potato chips, although still not good for you, taste like actual potatoes

: Episode 905 - Vinnie talks with Andy about his love of Vince Lombardi and the hard-ass philosophy that Vinnie lives by which is both a benefit and a curse.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

HARD-ASS

  • Vinnie has always been a huge Vince Lombardi fan
  • Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect
    • Make accountability even if it is not imposed otherwise
      • Andy became a great piano player this way!
  • Vinnie works hard, never takes a day off because of success
    • How he got out of the bayou, how he played college football at his side, how he got to LA, and how he has started businesses and created a brand
    • Now when Vinnie takes days off, it is usually for Serena
    • For years and years he would go to bed past midnight and wake up at 4:30am
  • In Vinnie's mind, there is no finish line
    • Like NSNG - it is a permanent lifestyle change
  • You can't do things right once in awhile, you have to do them right all the time

Look for the live Kansas City show from the meet-up soon!

Sep 25, 2017

: Episode 904 - Vinnie & Anna talk about a listener's question about DEXA scans, Vinnie's doppelganger at the gym, crazed do-gooders, quick tempers, dogs in cars, fasting and more!

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

ST. LOUIS MEETUP

  • The Beauchamps set up a meet up
  • Anna, Vinnie, and Andy surprised the group and attended the meet up
  • Lonnie and Trey both were instrumental in the LA meet up a few years back 

VINNIE'S DOPPELGANGER

  • Vinnie found his doppelganger in the gym
  • People kept comparing the two
  • Wear the hat the same way
  • Vinnie couldn't stop looking at the guy 
  • It was freaky seeing himself in 3D!

DEXA SCANS

  • DEXA Scan is a special type of X-ray that measures bone density 
  • Anna had one in 2003
  • A listener sent her stats (maybe 20 lbs to lose, though scan said 40) but according to DEXA scan she was over 40% fat
  • Only accurate way to measure body fat is hydrostatic weighing
    • Otherwise, it won't be all that accurate
    • This is very uncomfortable and is not used as much as it used to be
  • All the calibers are sort of BS
    • "Fat analysis", "body scan" etc
    • Take measurements from different parts of the body
      • Makes them wildly off 

FASTING

  • Vinnie will be the first to say that fasting is not for everyone
  • Can be good if you have really messed up metabolism to kick start it
  • Others like Intermittent Fasting
  • See below books for more info

: Episode 902 - Dr Robert Lustig, MD, MSL, author of Fat Chance and the speaker on the famous YouTube video Sugar: The Bitter Truth, joins Vinnie to talk about his new book The Hacking of The American Mind. Dr. Lustig talks about the difference between happiness and pleasure, how serotonin and dopamine affect us, and the plot by the food industry to get us all addicted to their food.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

DR ROBERT LUSTIG 

  • The guy Vinnie has been following forever
    • Dr. Lustig is the BEST 
  • Has over 7 mil views on his above YouTube vid
  • His new book, The Hacking of The American Mind came out September 12th!
    • About what people have done to our brains 
    • The word "hack" used to mean prank
      • Now it is - clever solutions to accomplish problems
        • White Hack
    • Black Hack is a negative thing
    • Hacking computers has taken on a negative message
  • Hacking humans = how substances, food, other people alter us
    • Bad food alters our mind
  • Further, we have confused pleasure and happiness which in turn allows us to GET hacked
  • Pleasure vs Happiness
    • Pleasure
      • short term
      • visceral
      • achieved alone
      • taking
      • achieved with substances
      • leads to addiction
      • dopamine
    • Happiness
      • long term
      • ethereal
      • in groups
      • giving
      • cannot be achieved with substances
      • never leads to addiction
      • serotonin
  • Happiness is more important and better to experience than pleasure!
  • Dopamine addictive, serotonin is not 
    • Dopamine is what your brain releases when you try addictive drugs
    • Serotonin when you feel a wave of joy from being with the people you love
    • Act with your receptors differently

 


The Hacking of the American Mind by Dr Robert Lustig

 

Sep 20, 2017

: 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

    • 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!!

    • 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!

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

SQUATS

  • 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

  • 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

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
    • Bamboozled Vinnie in the world of health and fitness
  • Never trust a guy with too much gel in his hair

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

            • 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
