ONE-ON-ONE WITH JOHN MENDOZA

 

Expect a terrific Podcast from one of the funniest men alive!  John Mendoza and I never actually get to any fitness.  Hopefully you will enjoy this as much as I did.

By the way, a lot of people ask me about the soap that I use which I talk about on the show.  It's a vegetable based soap.  It's a tad bit expensive, but you can shave with it, use it as a shampoo and it will leave you clean and not make you smell like a girl, unless you are a girl.

Vinnie and Anna talk to Stephanie Person about Dietary Ketosis, Intermittent Fasting, PMS, and being a Ketogenic Coach.

stephanie person

Get inspired from Stephanie's You Tube Channel Vids.

Check out Stephanie's Website for Consult Info and FAQs.

From Stephanie:

"I started educating myself regarding keto adaptation by trying to drive ketosis in my mother suffering from a terminal glioblastoma brain tumor. They give her 6 months to live which prompted me to take an aggressive approach to slow cancer growth. I dramatically lowered her carbohydrate intake and raised her dietary fats exponentially. Immediately my mothers  cancer growth stopped. She is now in her 7th year of being cancer free

 After my mothers cancer remission from a low carb high fat diet prescription I then was ready to apply nutritional ketosis principles on myself. With success I was able to enter and maintain ketosis with incredible health improvements.

 After my incredible benefits of maintaing ketosis on myself I then I applied low carb, high fat principles on close friends. The success stories of better health continued in people around me. My next approach was my personal training clients. In a 2 year time period  I was able to keto coach 8 subjects with 100% improvement in their weight loss goals.

 Today I have keto coached 84 for clients with amazing results.  I set up a live consultation with the individual. I then find out what their goals are in trying to keto adapt, all health issues and prior failures in attempting to keto adapt on their own. The main concept I approach with importance to client is how stress plays as role in their failure to keto adapt."

Tim Reed

Then Vinnie and Anna welcome fat-adapted endurance athlete Tim Reed on the show to discuss going against the grain with endurance nutrition.

Check out Tim Reed's website.

Check out Time Reed on Facebook.

From Tim:

"I grew up on a small island, 'Lord Howe Island' but went to boarding school in Sydney. Took up triathlon in my final year of university to try and impress chicks and also because physiological testing  suggested I was suited to endurance sport. 

After 2 years of winning a lot of amateur titles I turned pro in 2010 and have since had over 40 professional podiums, won an Australian title, kept my World Ironman 70.3 ranking in the top 5 for the last 2 years and finished 5th at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships last year.  

I'm a huge advocate for a high fat diet and specifically preach to athletes I coach and talk to about eating 'real' unprocessed food."

We learn about the billions we pay for drugs including one of my pet favorites, STATINS.  We also learn that doctors learn almost nothing about nutrition in medical school.

This may or may not be the real Dr. X
