: Episode 1186 - Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino, the Keto Guido, joins Vinnie this Friday, and the two talk growing up Italian, Jersey Shore, the benefits of a low-carb, ketogenic diet, and more!



  • Vinny is Sicilian, like Vinnie
    • His mom born in Sicily,
  • Named Vincent, rather than Vincenzo, trying to Americanize it
  • Now, his family is going back to Italian names 
  • Both he and Vinnie were not "Vincenzo"
  • Still had traditional Italian family values
    • Family meals, etc.
  • Vinnie is the reason Vinny got into low-carb/keto 
  • Vinny was the more balanced person on Jersey Shore
    • Overall, calm, nerdy (comparatively), college-grad, law school-bound, guy to counterbalance the crazy on the show
  • Jersey Shore was TONS of work
    • Between filming and PR, it was nuts
    • Spent lots of time in night clubs 
    • Paid to show up places 


  • Check out his Instagram here
  • Vinny has had a ton of success with a low carb diet
    • Lost a lot of weight himself 
  • In 2015, he got really into it
  • Went down the rabbit hole 
  • Got a keto cookbook
  • His friends thought it was weird, but now his Instagram has almost 600k followers
  • He says he's not an expert, he's someone with anecdotal evidence 
  • It takes guys like Vinny to spread this around because people listen to him!
  • He is amazed by the same luminaries that Vinnie has on this show
    • Nina Teicholz is one of those people
