: 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!



  • 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 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 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 


  • 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
