: Episode 1264 - Anna Vocino and Vinnie Tortorich talk Anna's anniversary, Vinnie's hand modeling career, his mom's recent health scare (she is OK now!), sugary vegan food, the Whole 30 diet, ketosis vs. ketoacidosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, on this Monday podcast.



  • Vinnie has really manly hands
  • However, he was a successful hand model for awhile
  • Gave his hand VIP treatment
  • Would make sure not to scratch it, not to fall on it
  • Super careful when he cut his nails
  • A few months later, there's a Seinfeld episode where George is a hand model and walks around in a mitt
    • Vinnie knew the writer and she knew/had spoke about his hand modeling career
    • Would never admit she got the bit from him, though


  • Whole30 is essentially a low-carb diet
  • Cuts out legumes and grains
  • Anna had a friend doing this and had someone criticize this choice
  • Whole30 really can be good
    • But you don't need to buy meal plans to do low carb diets
  • Can only eat real foods
  • Much better than a vegan plan


  • People can get this from non-alcohol related causes
  • Diet can be a reason
  • A symptom of obesity
  • Millions of people suffer from this in the US
  • A silent killer
  • 30 million have the full blown disease (NASH)
  • Will take over Hep C as #1 reason for liver transplants
  • CDC has not addressed crisis and FDA has no treatment
  • However, low carb diets and NSNG can be a way to help this!
