: Episode 785 - Anna Vocino joins Vinnie Tortorich to talk about natural alternatives to sugar (maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, etc), "diet or exercise?!?!", fake science, The Bachelor and more on this Monday episode.



  • Vinnie interviewed this brilliant scientist
    • PhD in Biochemistry
  • Look out for the 1 on 1, coming out April 7th
  • Vinnie also just did a 1 on 1 with Nina Teicholz that came out recently
    • The two mimic the same thing


  • Multiple doctors have told Vinnie that low fat is BS
    • Many of whom are Cardiologists
  • Often these doctors are not willing to come onto the show because of SAD
    • Too bad, because these doctors are the ones saving the most lives
  • It is hard to go against the 'norm', even when the norm is wrong
  • A lot of published science about cholesterol and sat fats is proving to be false
  • Sugar and grain industry fund many government health studies


  • Anna reads a CNN article that claims natural alternatives to sugar are better than artificial sweeteners and high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
  • Maple syrup, honey, date sugar, coconut sugar & molasses are recommended in this article
  • Often, these articles claim that these other forms of sugar have more vitamins and minerals than HFCS, but really it's just a diversion

    You don't need to eat sugar to get your B6 or your iron. You don't. If you want iron, eat a f**king piece of meat!" - Vinnie Tortorich

  • The bottom line: maple syrup, honey, date sugar, coconut sugar & molasses ARE STILL SUGAR!!!
  • Your liver doesn't know the difference!


  • Serena just had a personal best on a 50 miler
  • Ran in just around 10 hours
    • Took 1.5+ hours off of her previous best time
  • Won her division
  • This race had north of 4500 ft of climbing in it


  • Nick picked the wrong woman
    • Vanessa challenges him too much
      • Relationship is already over
    • Raven would have been a better fit
    • Nick is also an idiot
