    Cooking with Anna - Episode 1839

    Cooking with Anna - Episode 1839

    : Episode 1839 – On this Monday show, we're cooking with Anna Vocino and Vinnie Tortorich. Anna prepares flank steak and the two talk meat dry rubs, grazing, workout tips and lean muscle, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/05/cooking-with-anna-episode-1839 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS COOKING WITH ANNA You can mix some meat rubs together ahead of time. Anna's cooking some flank steak. But, you can just throw stuff you have together for a rub. Anna uses ancho chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, onion powder, allspice, cayenne pepper. You have lots of savory flavors, but allspice (which is NOT a sugar) adds a hint of sweet. Anna recommends leaving the meat out for awhile before cooking. She's also making some guacamole! Instead of onions, try shallots. She's taking the seeds out of the heirloom tomato and saving it for topping with cilantro –– for now, just put in the rough edges. Also, add some jalapeno. Anna will eat this on top of the carne asada she's making. GRAZING Eating so often is not good for you. We are not meant to graze. Getting off of snacks is a good and important thing. If you're hungry during the day, you may be getting hidden carbs that are messing with your hormones, or you may not be eating enough fat. You do NOT need to fast, but you can. LEAN MUSCLE You will get your leanness in the kitchen. More muscle=lower reps + higher weights. Go slow and steady.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS GETTING DEBT-FREE Tom is working toward being debt free. Vinnie is all for this. He knows some people who are in so much debt they just keep going, and he thinks this is a bad idea. Work to pay it down quickly so it can't follow you. This way, you can enjoy the rest of your life with less worry. Dave Ramsey has some good podcasts on this. GOOD FRIENDS Tom found this lifestyle through a good friend. Let your friends see your progress – inform them, but don't preach. Tom's friend just made little tidbits as time went on, and eventually, he was ready to hear it all and dive fully in. Then, she was there to push him when he needed to be pushed. She lost a lot of weight and looked great. Tom has also had good success. His wife also mostly lives this lifestyle. She meal preps a lot for the two of them. Tom is 44, got up to 270 lbs at 6 feet tall. Now, he weighs 196! He's done this without much exercise.

    Improving Animal Welfare with Dr. Temple Grandin - Episode 1836

    Improving Animal Welfare with Dr. Temple Grandin - Episode 1836

    : Episode 1836 – On this Friday show, the amazing Temple Grandin joins Vinnie to talk autism, using tools, selling equipment, improving animal welfare, specificity in guidelines, what we can do, and more. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WATCH THIS PODCAST ON YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pthoj6NKDk TEMPLE GRANDIN Dr. Grandin is a professor of animal science at Colorado State. There is a movie about this amazing woman! It's simply called Temple Grandin.  She's also been in Time Magazine. She grew up using tools. This is a great thing for children. It makes them think and learn. Dr. Grandin started by designing equipment.  The equipment was an attempt to make treatment of cattle better, but people were still engaging in bad behavior. Things turned around when some activists won a case against McDonalds to do with treatment of livestock. Dr. Grandin took a bunch of executives, like those at McDonalds, on a tour of a cattle farm and they saw the terrible, inhumane conditions. Animal welfare went from an abstraction to something real. Dr. Grandin also believes in low carb high fat. She lost lots of weight and she just feels better overall. ETHICAL TREATMENT OF LIVESTOCK Dr. Grandin came up with a simple auditing program and she taught McDonalds how to use it. Wendy's and Burger King signed on. If you could not kill 95% of your animals in five shots, you lost your place on the supplier list for big companies like McDonalds. You could also fail in other ways, too. Acts of abuse were automatic fails. It was like traffic: you had to figure out what to control and make it very clear. Only three out of 75 suppliers had to buy new equipment. 1999 was the tipping point. Now, Dr. Grandin wants to fix issues on farms, and these are harder to fix. Housing is a big issue, genetic issues are a big issue, lameness is an issue. It's a significant minority who face these issues. Supply chain people need to get out of the office and see where there food comes. AUTISM Dr. Grandin is also a huge autism advocate. She was non-verbal until she was 4. Art made a big difference for her –– staying away from electronics is also important for autistic kids. Some autistic kids are visual thinkers, some mathematical thinkers, and some verbal thinkers. When she was a kid, people didn't understand autism, so she didn't receive the diagnosis until later in life. Doctors would think of her as 'retarded.' A big motivator for Dr. Grandin was that she wanted to show she was not stupid. In fact, she is brilliant. FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON iTUNES and AMAZON Please also share it with family and friends!

    Well-Balanced Exercise - Episode 1835

    Well-Balanced Exercise - Episode 1835

    : Episode 1835 – On this Wednesday show, Andy and Vinnie talk odd or God, well-balanced exercise, Tuesday and Thursday Tips, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/05/well-balanced-exercise-episode-1835 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WELL-BALANCED EXERCISE It's good to do balanced work outs. Don't neglect leg day if you're always doing arm day, for example. It looks silly to have the huge upper body with the bird legs. Mix cardio with strength and the like. As you get older, having a strong and active lower body becomes increasingly important. You can walk to accomplish this. Vinnie still does upper body exercise, even if it's not to the same extent.
