Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/06/turning-your-life-around-low-carb-episode-1597 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS   LOSING WEIGHT DURING COVID-19 During Coronavirus, he has lost over 10 kilos, or about 25 lbs! Take this time, or what's left of it, to make mindful eating decisions. If you've fallen off the wagon, get back on.  If you've eaten really clean during lockdown, figure out what worked well for you and stick to it. TURNING YOUR LIFE AROUND At his heaviest, he was right around 400 lbs at 6 feet tall -- 5 or 6 years ago. He got down to around 265 lbs using other weight loss diets, but they didn't work. His weight jumped back up to around 350 lbs and his blood pressure was dangerous. It started with walking and listening to low carb podcasts. He believes this has added 30 to 40 years on his life. Now, he weighs around 175 lbs. His brain function, too, he thinks, has improved. He also loves that he feels full for so much of the day!

    Insulin Resistance & Chronic Disease with Dr. Ben Bikman - Episode 1596

    : Episode 1596 - Dr. Benjamin Bikman joins Vinnie for his second appearance on the Friday show, and the two talk his new book, Why We Get Sick, metabolic syndromes and insulin resistance at the root of chronic disease, food in schools, COVID-19 and comorbidities, and more! Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/06/insulin-resistance-chronic-disease-dr-ben-bikman-episode-1596 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS   DR. BENJAMIN BIKMAN Dr. Bikman as a PhD in bioenergentics from Duke. He is a Professor of biomedical science and others at BYU, and is the director of the metabolism lab. This man is a a metabolism expert. He is bald. In his 20s when he went bald, he knew he had to stay in shape to compete.

He focuses on insulin resistance which is the root of nearly all non-contagious chronic diseases. Seeing this as the paradigm can help us detect, prevent, treat these diseases. Check out that book here: What is insulin resistance and do you get it? Why does it matter? And what's it about? 88% of adults in the US were found metabolically unfit in a study out of UNC. Just because people are thin does not mean they are metabolically healthy.  Starting kids on healthy, not super sugary food is an incredibly important place to start. Try to create some simple principles for your kid. It can be hard because kids naturally want junk food and their friends will likely have it. Just make sure they eat healthily while they're around you, but don't make food a punishment or reward or anything like that. FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now!

    Workout Tips & Avoiding Pain - Episode 1594

    : Episode 1594 - On this Monday show, Anna and Vinnie discuss country western music, Steven Tyler lookalikes, workout tips, avoiding pain, cycling on rollers, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/05/workout-tips-avoiding-pain-episode-1594 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS   WORKOUT TIPS You may have shin pain from walking for awhile. Definitely be careful to avoid shin splints. If you change surfaces or your strike, this can cause shin splints. Try to make sure your butt is underneath you. If other parts of you hurt, think about whether it's because the parts that aren't hurting are simply stronger. When you start a new exercise, start slow and then slow down a bit. Don't roll out your muscles or bands for too long. This can actually be damaging. Vinnie recommends yoga balls to roll.  Some soreness is okay–it means you're using those muscles, but you should never be in a lot of pain.  Plus, if you're in a lot of pain you're less likely to keep exercising.

Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/05/covid-19-comorbidities-episode-1593 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS   COVID-19 COMORBIDITIES Several comorbidities have appeared to be quite prevalent with this pandemic. These include diabetes, hypertension, and other diseases that result from obesity. We need to fix this problem, and this pandemic has demonstrated it more than ever. Nobody wants to be fat and unhealthy. We have to get your good intentions back! As a result, it does seem people are more frequently having this conversation about health and what really prevents these sort of diseases. Doctors have recommended staying away from sugars and eating a more NSNG® diet, including doctors who have previously advocated for less healthy ways of eating. This is an unfortunate wake-up call for many. FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now! We need people to buy and review for it to stay at the top of iTunes pages. Please also share it with family and friends!

The best❤️

This is my favorite podcast! And I have a bunch that I love. If I minded the rambling I would bear in mind that I am free to turn off anything I don’t like instead of complaining and whining about it. Vinnie and Anna are so fun to listen to! And yet you can still learn a lot about nutrition and fitness, you just have to be patient, like listening to your relatives talking. Love it!

Redm6556 ,

Never a Dull Moment!

Not only informational but never ceases to put a smile on my face. So down to earth. And Anna...can't rave enough about her cookbooks! You can tell she loves her fans by the way she responds on her social media pages. Thanks for being there for us Anna! Andy is the voice of reason. He's like listening to a big brother giving advice.
Keep up the great content!
