Vinnie and Anna discuss how to survive holiday meals living the NSNG Lifestyle. As Vinnie always tells us, "It’s not what you eat between Christmas and New Year’s, it’s what you eat between New Year’s and Christmas".  We also learn about Vinnie’s version of  “Man on the Street” videos.  So let's get to the meat of the matter...I mean turkey...

Vinnie's Version:  Man on the Street Videos

  • Check it out on or Google “Vinnie Tortorich You Tube”
  • Vinnie interviews people as they exit Starbucks and Jamba Juice
  • He asks them is they are aware of what’s in their drink
  • Are they aware or how many calories or how much sugar

Should You Start NSNG Before the Holidays

  • Go for it! Start today! But start slowly.
  • This is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle
  • Put life into living and enjoy the holidays 

How to Navigate the Holiday Meals

  • Start by cutting down on sugar and carbs...take smaller portions
  • Go to and find recipes
  • If you are cooking, no aware of “mouth hunger” and real hunger
  • Keep something healthy around like a scoop of nut butter

Before the Thanksgiving Meal

  •  Stay away from wine and’re starting with sugar too early
  • If you have to pick before the meal, reach for nuts or cheese
  • Have a cup of coffee and some heavy cream
  • Make your own healthy soda with Soda Stream and add a lemon or lime

During the Meal

  • Don’t feel like you have to load up your plate
  • Be careful with stuffing and potatoes
  • Fill your plate with turkey and salad
  • Take a little bit of everything and just taste the stuff that is going to make you feel like crap
