    Food on Planes & COVID-19 - Episode 2018

    Food on Planes & COVID-19 - Episode 2018

    : Episode 2018 - On this Sunday School episode, Gina Grad and Vinnie Tortorich talk Gina's COVID-19 battle, food on planes, vacation time, the Scott Thomas sisters, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2022/01/food-on-planes-covid-19-episode-2018 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS GINA'S COVID-19 BATTLE Gina just had COVID. It wasn't too bad for her! Mostly, she felt a little foggy and had some face pain and loss of smell and taste. She remembers two years ago when COVID first began -- car manufacturers switched from making cars to ventilators. Vinnie knew folks who died from it. While hospitals are full right now because cases on the whole have risen dramatically, that the virus appears to be less severe for the vaccinated makes it a very different experience. Hopefully this will turn into something like the annual flu, at worst. FOOD ON PLANES Air travel has changed dramatically. Back in the day, the food was better quality. There were fewer grains and seed oils and the like. Even in economy, you'd be served a meal with real utensils. Vinnie had eggs. It's a good idea to bring some NSNG® snacks on the plane with you in case the food options aren't compliant! PURCHASE BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE The documentary launched this week on January 11!

    Turning Life Around with NSNG® - Episode 2017

    Turning Life Around with NSNG® - Episode 2017

    Episode 2017 - On this Saturday show, Terri Barnhardt joins Vinnie and the two talk Colorado snow, Terri's journey, diabetes development, turning life around with NSNG, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2022/01/turning-life-around-nsng-episode-2017 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS TERRI'S JOURNEY Terri is based out of Colorado. She's waiting for more snow. She was always reasonably heavy. At around age 21, she worked in Grand Canyon, and still gained 60 lbs in 9 months. At the time, her doctor just told her to cut down on the peanut butter. This weight gain occured while she was active each day. The diet was made up of lots of Mexican food (rice and beans), lots of margaritas, heavy carbs. She continued gaining weight, and developed diabetes, was on statins, and the like. When she was type 2, around 2012, her A1C was 13.3. Then, she ballooned up from there. TURNING LIFE AROUND In about 2016, she was diagnosed with two separate types of cancer that were unrelated within two months. She had kidney cancer and bone cancer in her opposite leg. Her kidney surgery happened first, and then she underwent leg surgery. At that point, she heard cancer would kill her or at least take her leg. She had metal parts. Terri then found a doctor who told her she needed to lose 100 lbs or he would put her on full time oxygen. Weight Watchers didn't work. Then, she found NSNG®. She went all in, and it changed her life. It took Terri a few weeks to figure out where her good intentions were being stolen. She got off all of her insulin within six weeks. She had other incredible developments, along with her weight loss, too. Terri feels this way of living saved her life. PURCHASE BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE The documentary launched this week on January 11!

    Body Weight Strength Training with Jerry Teixeira - Episode 2016

    Body Weight Strength Training with Jerry Teixeira - Episode 2016

    Episode 2016 - On this Friday show, joins Vinnie and the two talk body weight strength training, the importance of resistance training, bro science BS, avoiding a sedentary lifestyle, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2022/01/body-weight-strength-training-jerry-teixeira-episode-2016 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS BODY WEIGHT STRENGTH TRAINING He is a body weight strength trainer. Since 2010, he has been pretty low carb. Normally, he's around 75 grams a day. He doesn't feel that he builds muscle better when he is medium carb vs. low carb. Resistance training plus adequate protein is what you need for muscle mass. You have to want to be healthier -- and to exercise, you have to make yourself do something you might not want to do. It's easier when you don't need a gym... His focus is on gaining muscle and getting fit without a gym. He knew when he had his second child he wouldn't have time to go to the gym and didn't want to get the equipment. He fell in love with the minimalist approach! Jerry recommends a pull up bar and gymnastics rings for your at-home equipment. You can use these for rowing, for example. It's so important to get away from a sedentary lifestyle. His exercise style, which he details, just gets you on your feet -- and that's most important. He has lots of videos on YouTube, too. Start with two days a week, and go from there. THE GYM BRO Nowadays, many go to the gym and spend a lot of time sitting there. That might be fine, but they're also consuming junk while they do it. Things like pre-workout and others are full of sugar and completely worthless, anyway! Products like this are targeted toward the 'gym bro.' Don't fall for it. Simply put, it's just a type of bro science. For most people, you don't need to take a lot of creatine (if any) if you eat animal proteins. Vinnie doesn't take any and JT doesn't think everyone should. PURCHASE BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE The documentary launched this week, January 11! Order it TODAY!

    What We Have in Store for 2022 - Episode 2015

    Episode 2015 - On this Wednesday episode, Andy Schreiber and Vinnie Tortorich talk what we have in store for 2022, overcoming problems posed in 2021, our new blonde roast, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2022/01/what-we-have-in-store-2022-episode-2015 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WHAT WE HAVE IN STORE In many ways, 2021 was a great year for us. We came out with new products and did quite well. But we also had some supply and equipment issues. This resulted in delays in order fulfillment and delivery. We figured out what we needed to do to make sure this does not happen going forward. Andy details the concrete steps the companies have taken to avoid these problems.  This includes things like updating our equipment, which was a bit older. The supply-chain issues are solved, and we're caught up. We also have new products in store -- our blonde roast for PCC is one of them!

    The Importance of Fresh Food & More - Episode 2014

    The Importance of Fresh Food & More - Episode 2014

    : Episode 2014 - On this Monday show, Vinnie and Anna Vocino talk pheasant hunting in England, the Beyond Impossible launch tomorrow, Eat Happy Kitchen's sauces, the importance of fresh food, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2022/01/the-importance-of-fresh-food-more-episode-2014 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS VINNIE'S ENGLAND TRIP Vinnie had the absolute best time in England. He went on two shoots -- one very official and the other more casual. The trip lasted 16 days and he is so glad to have gone. He spent lots of time outdoors and lots of quality time with Serena's family. People complain about the hunting -- but they always consume what they shoot, and it matters. In many places, hunting is an important part of life, for sustenance and income. EAT HAPPY KITCHEN'S SAUCES Anna has three fabulous, healthy sauces available for purchase. There is a marinara, a puttanesca, and a pink crema. Order a case -- you get an unbeatable deal. THE IMPORTANCE OF FRESH FOOD If you can eat fresh food, you are much more likely to be healthy. Vinnie sees this first hand: where people aren't fat, usually they aren't eating processed foods. Fresh and whole foods can be within your budget. Shop sales, buy in bulk and freeze, and more. Processed foods are such a big component of what make us unhealthy. PRE-ORDER BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE The documentary launches tomorrow, January 11! Please pre-order it TODAY.
