: Episode 697 - Vinnie & Anna talk about 80's muscle pants, emotional eating, intentional eating, Vinnie's mom and more.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

MUSCLE PANTS

  • These sort of baggy pants to work out in from the '80s
  • Have the muscle tees as well
    • Just covering nips
  • Complete ridiculousness
  • Nowadays, companies like LuluLemon are making see through riding pantsimages

EMOTIONAL EATING

  • The same as compulsive eating
  • Vinnie has so many clients and callers who deal with this
  • When you are feeling down, it is so much easier to break NSNG
  • Anna personally dealt with this
  • Everyone can fall into this category at some point
  • Emotional eating is part of the addiction
    • Easier to give in to sugar/grain addiction when you already feel bad 
  • Sometimes, stress makes it so that eating junk food is just more convenient
  • Sometimes you don't even realize how much you emotionally eat
    • You find, when you do NSNG, that you recognize these problems
  • The issue is, when you eat emotionally, you are working against yourself
    • Eating crap will actually make you physically feel even crappier
    • You will also find that you realize you need to deal with certain emotions
      • Helps you heal the issues when you can recognize them 
  • Eating consciously and keeping track of what you put in your mouth is a key
  • A form of emotional eating is even when you are in a group and want a beer
    • Don't give into that peer pressure or "normality" of it
      • Ex: men during football season 
  • Don't find yourself using the power of reasoning
    • For example:
      • I had a good day, I deserve some Ice Cream
      • I had a bad day, I deserve some Ice Cream
Oct 29, 2016

WEIGHT-LOSS JOURNEY

  • In July 2016, he had lost over 100 lbs
  • Tony now weighs 180 lbs
  • His goal is 160 but he has lost over 120 lbs so far
  • Tony does some basic exercise
    • Crunches, push ups, squats, and runs a couple times a week, staying in Zone 2
      • He is now getting into hiking as well
  • Tony proves that exercise is a poor way to lose weight, and while it can supplement weight loss, DIET is absolutely necessary 
  • Tony cannot believe how he could have changed so quickly
  • It's all about cutting out the sugar and the grains!!!

WHAT EXERCISE MATTERS?

  • Stay the course on Zone 2
  • Sometimes you have to slow down to go faster
  • Learning how to run properly after weight loss is also very important
  • Tony is setting his sights on Mt. Rainier

Episode 695 -- Sylvia Tara, biochemist and author of The Secret Life of Fat, joins Vinnie today to talk about fat, an endocrine organ, that does so much good for puberty, for our immune systems, and for our brain.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

SYLVIA TARA

  • Incredibly smart and beautiful!
  • Holds a PhD in biochemistry from UCSD
  • Also has an MBA from Wharton (U Penn)
  • Worked with all of the big biotech companies

SECRET LIFE OF FAT

  • Check out her book here!
  • The Secret Life of Fat: The Science Behind the Body's Least Understood Organ and What It Means for You
    The Secret Life of Fat: The Science Behind the Body's Least Understood Organ and What It Means for You
  • Now focuses on popular misconceptions of fat, and how fat in reality does so much good for us
    • People fear fat, but really it is just an endocrine organ

ENDOCRINE ORGAN

  • "Adipose Tissue", or fat, is an endocrine Organ
  • Endocrine system controls all of the hormones in your body
  • Therefore, fat is incredibly important for our development and homeostasis as well
  • Our body tries to hold on to fat when we eat it for a reason
  • Not just a great source of energy

 

Oct 26, 2016

: Episode 694 -- The lovely Nicole Recine joins Vinnie Tortorich to discuss appearance fads, deciphering insulin, and explain differences between insulin and glucose

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

NICOLE RECINE

FADS

  • Guy at the gym had the extremely short buzzcut with the ironically long beard
    • What is this look??
    • Amish want their look back
  • Many men are trying to be overly masculine these days 
  • Men use hairdryers and am getting manicures
    • Men these days are more comfortable with sexuality

DECIPHERING INSULIN

  • Insulin is a hormone that controls blood sugar
    • When you eat sugar or protein, your blood sugar spikes and your pancreas releases insulin
    • Cannot be measured at home, only in a lab
    • Insulin allows the blood sugar to enter the cells to be used for energy
      • First job is to bring blood glucose down  
      • Lowers blood sugar!
      • Helps store fat (triglyceride chains)
    • If you are trying to burn fat, you don't want too high a blood sugar because you don't want insulin to get too high and store more fat
      • Low insulin = access to fat stores
    • Insulin resistance is when your body is constantly over producing insulin (even when you are fasting) to take care of the load of carbs it expects you to eat from past experience 
      • Essentially, this means your body then can't access the fat and makes you feel hungry to use sugar as fuel 
Oct 24, 2016

: Episode 693- Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino talk iTunes rankings, Anna's work, BS Weight Loss articles, eating carbs, and more! 

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

RANKINGS

  • The podcast had a record day yet was not at the top of the charts
    • ~18,000 more downloads
  • Sometimes they will have a bad day, yet be top 5 in the rankings
  • The algorithm makes absolutely no sense 

BS WEIGHT LOSS ARTICLES

  • "How to Lose Weight While You Sleep"
    • Total BS article, as they all are
    • Article immediately goes to a coconut water ad
      • Coconut water is basically straight sugar
    • "Getting a better night's sleep"
      • "One of the most effective [ways]"
    • This is based off of caloric restriction diets
      • That is the first flaw
    • This "study" was done over 14 days
      • This is REALLY not a study
    • In reality, it has to do with hormones which this article does not acknowledge
    • They also stress exercise as a way to lose weight
      • This is BS, gaining muscle = heavier than fat 
    • THIS IS BRO SCIENCE!

EATING CARBS

  • When you cut out sugars and grains, you are full more quickly
  • When you are eating lots of carbs, it makes you want to eat more and more
  • If you eat the RIGHT, HEALTHY foods, your body will say "Okay, no more"
  • Whereas eating a pizza, it's harder to stop
  • We are the only animal to restrict HOW much we eat to look a certain way/lose weight
    • This just proves it is wrong -- it is WHAT you eat that we need to focus on!
  • The obesity epidemic is one of the biggest problems in US health care
    • Health care prices going up in part because more people are sick 
Oct 22, 2016

Oct 21, 2016

: Episode 691 - Dr. Susan Masino joins Vinnie Tortorich today to discuss metabolism and brain health, in regards to the mechanisms that control how a ketogenic diet positively affect our bodies.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

DR. SUSAN MASINO

  • She is a professor of Applied Science at Trinity College
  • Has been conducting research there for two decades
    • Has been doing research, in general, for even longer!
  • Focus is adenosine and its effects on homeostasis and metabolism 
    • Regulator of cell function
  • Her real passion is brain health
    • She is now connected to the ketogenic community and the brain health community 

KETOGENIC DIET

  • Susan Masino does believe that a ketogenic diet is incredibly beneficial
  • Her goal is to figure out how this diet can help not only epilepsy, but other diseases
    • For example, autism spectrum disorder
  • Used as a treatment for epilepsy for 100 years now

WHAT IS ADENOSINE?

  • Adenosine is core molecule of ATP
    • We need ATP to function (adenosine triphosphate -- energy)
  • Adenosine is present throughout the brain and body
    • Not just in cases where there are strokes 
  • Regulatory influence on our cells 

BRAIN HEALTH

  • Her hypothesis: Ketone-based metabolism increases adenosine which increases brain health and homeostasis
    • In turn, this helps neurological disorders such as epilepsy 
  • Healthy metabolism (sufficient amount of ATP) is so vital
    • Ketogenic diet increases ATP produced 
  • Your brain can use KETONES instead of sugar for its overall metabolic demand 
    • Plus, you have plenty enough sugar in NSNG diet
  • New info coming up on brain cancer, Alzheimer's, and more
  • Dr. Masino focuses on: autism, epilepsy, and pain 
  • Brain health needs to become a major public policy issue
    • Not enough folks focus on why what happens to us happens to us
      • More evidence leading to diet as a source of many issues, or at least the worsening of these issues
Oct 19, 2016

: Episode 690 - Vinnie and Andy discuss the magnesium in the multi-caps vs. the magnesium supplement, ab machines, and heavy whipping cream.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

MAGNESIUM VS. MULTI-CAP

  • Multi-cap is all around good for everyone
  • Magnesium is that somethin' extra
    • More of a personal thing than the multi-cap
      • Great for a lot of things, but not everybody needs it!

AB MACHINES

  • You work abs basically one way -- the way that causes the 6 pack
  • Comes from crunching those muscles 
  • Ab machines can be very helpful!
    • That being said, they are not necessary 
  • When you use an ab machine, change it up
  • Put enough resistance where you aren't doing more than 20-25 reps
  • Don't get into the whole "doing it fast" thing
    • Doing this slowly and methodically is the best way to do abs 
    • This is the best way to thoroughly work those muscles 

WHIPPING CREAM

  • You can make your own whipped cream from heavy whipping cream, BTW
  • Heavy Whipping cream is good to use in small amounts
    • Many use it in coffee and a bowl and berries and such
  • Make sure you get heavy whipping cream with no sugar added!!! 
  • Pressurized Whipped Cream or Ready Whip has TONS of sugar
    • DO NOT get these things
  • Get a carton of pure cream HWC at your local grocery store!
    • TJ's has good stuff that Vinnie uses all the time

On this special Friday episode, we revisit the 2 hour Ron Rosedale episode (Controlling Leptin) which originally aired 11 months ago.  Enjoy this highly informative, extra long podcast and become a super fan to get even more old podcasts like this!!!!

 

Dr. Ron Rosedale, nutritional and metabolic expert, joins Vinnie Tortorich on this special 2-hour Friday edition of the Angriest Trainer podcast to discuss what to eat, when to eat, controlling leptin, and how to control the big weight hormone that often allows sugar to kill us: leptin.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS

WHO IS ROSEDALE?

  • Founder of schools for metabolic research
  • Researches diabetes, aging, leptin, insulin, one's metabolism,
  • Says a "disease is caused not by the breakdown of the part itself, but interference in the instructions to that part, a disruption in the unity of the whole"
  • The Rosedale diet
    • Believes NSNG is the way to go, although an apple or an occasional sweet treat will not kill you or be the cause of an issue
    • Book here

DISEASE

  • Disease is not just one individual part, it is how your parts interact
  • Dr. Rosedale tries to get all parts interacting correctly to control diseases
  • Focuses on diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, etc.
  • Communication of all parts is what results in longeivity

CONTROLLING LEPTIN

  • Leptin, a brain hormone, controls when you eat, how much, and how full you feel
  • This hormone causes you not to burn fat as fuel
  • Therefore, one has to control one's leptin levels to help their metabolism
  • Our high carb, low fat diet compared to other countries really hurts our hearts and diabetes and such
  • Most people have leptin levels out of control
    • Makes people overeat and store more fat instead of burn it
  • Low carbs and high fat!

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

PRINCE

  • Tobi is a HUGE Prince fan
    • Vinnie also really likes Prince
  • His movies and acting are pretty bad, however
    • They were still fun and campy
  • His music is inspiring, and Tobi really felt that
    • Defied a lot of what she was taught, and she appreciated that
  • Both Vinnie and Tobi were raised in very religious households
    • Tobi Baptist, and Vinnie went to a Catholic school for many years 
      • Tobi has kept her religion, Vinnie has not 

CHILD DIETING

    • She remembers her mom telling her she was too big even at age three
    • This was, unfortunately, a sad moment for her
  • Tobi was a bigger kid (also, the tallest)
  • Ayds candy was a "diet candy"
    • It was straight sugar but could "make you lose weight"
  • Major ingredient was benzocaine 
    • Benzocaine is a topical pain reliever, anesthetic 
  • The issue is parents can very easily distill body images in their children
    • Especially now with media
    • Also, parents feeding their children crap certainly does not help
Oct 7, 2016

: Episode 684 -- Vinnie Tortorich and Serena Scott Thomas talk with Golden Harper, creator of Altra Running, about ultra-running, Altra shoes, and the company in general.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR

ALTRA RUNNING

  • Serena discovered these shoes ages ago
  • They so so quickly became her favorite shoes
    • They wore out quickly because she wore them SO SO often
    • She now has like 5 or 6 pairs
  • Serena also bought Vinnie running shoes from Altra
    • Vinnie can run in any shoes, but now he has a love for these shoes
  • Check out the website now!
  • This company was created by runners, for runners
    • Golden Harper grew up both running and working in a running store
      • He cared about people and helping them in their running
        • Started studying it and ended up studying it in college as well
          • Where the shoes and the science are, are very different places
          • For example, in many shoe stores they try to give you special supportive shoes because you "pronate"
            • It turns out, runners who pronate are actually the least injured
            • Only ~16% of runners should have shoes that 'correct' this
    • The shoe design actually started in a running store in Utah (Wasatch Mountain)
  • These are No BS shoes that can actually improve your running, and everyone loves them!
    • The best running shoes around
  • Altra has amazing Zero Drop shoes 
    • Since Serena started running in these shoes, her actual foot shape has improved as well

    • Of course has no fillers or any crap like that
    • They wanted to make sure they had the best possible ingredients
    • One of the major, important ingredients is B9
      • More commonly known as folate or folic acid
        • Were using folic acid because for the vast majority of people it works very well
          • However, certain people have MTHFR mutation -- doesn't work for them 
            • So now the vitamin has the finest version of folate (Quatrefolic) instead of folic acid
