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.

    Ultra Events While Fat Adapted - Episode 1834

    Ultra Events While Fat Adapted - Episode 1834

    : Episode 1834 – On this Monday show, Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino talk ultra events while fat adapted, eggs and good oils, protein powders, Alex's weight loss, Anna's Eat Happy recipes, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/05/ultra-events-while-fat-adapted-episode-1834 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS ULTRA EVENTS WHILE FAT ADAPTED When you're fat adapted, you can still do ultras. Serena will have some coffee and maybe an egg or two before a long run. On the run, she'll have olives or an Ultra Fat while going 30 miles. When she gets back, she'll eat a lot! Some people need to eat more before they exercise; others do not. Take care of yourself, but you can do it low carb. PROTEIN POWDERS Vinnie is not a big protein powder guy. It's better to get your protein from whole foods. However, if you need to do a protein powder, Vinnie says egg-white or whey. Make sure these are NOT flavored and do NOT have any sneaky sugars.

    BEST OF: Figuring Out Talents with Gina Grad - Episode 1833

    : Episode 1833 – On this BEST OF Sunday School episode, Gina Grad and Vinnie Tortorich talk walking as exercise, figuring out talents, failure, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/05/best-of-figuring-out-talents-gina-grad-episode-1833 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WALKING AS EXERCISE Walking can be a good form of exercise Gina loves walking 3 or 4 miles at least a day It makes her feel so much better Hiking is another great way to get exercise without running or going to the gym A good way to start getting into shape, too! Or if you are in shape, walk a ton! Take the dogs for long walks, etc. FIGURING OUT TALENTS "Find out what you're good at, and do it on purpose." Don't be afraid to fail. Sometimes you need to fail to figure out what you are good or bad at. Vinnie figured out he was bad at music, and that's how he found football. He wasn't good when he first started, but knew he had potential. Did perfect practice and got good! FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON iTUNES and AMAZON Please also share it with family and friends!

    Meat Benefits & Home-Gyms - Episode 1832

    Meat Benefits & Home-Gyms - Episode 1832

    : Episode 1832 – On this Saturday show, John Holmes joins Vinnie and the two talk meat benefits, hemochromatosis, home-gym equipment, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/04/meat-benefits-and-home-gyms-episode-1832 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS MEAT BENEFITS John has hemochromatosis. He also had other health issues that he thought could benefit from a carnivore diet Despite not being supposed to eat meat with hemochromatosis, he tried a carnivore diet, and his health and iron numbers got better! But he talked to Dr. Baker and he said it's actually the sugar that causes you to store iron when you eat the meat. Definitely consult with your doctor if you have this condition –– this is just an n1 experiment. HOME-GYM EQUIPMENT   You don't need a lot of space or money to make a 'home-gym.' There's lots of simple equipment you can purchase. Resistance bands, for example, are one easy thing. Vinnie loves a good home-gym.

Disappointed

This review is in response to a comment Vinnie made on his Sunday show with Gina Grad. When discussing food provided to Gina’s stepson, Vinnie stated he went to Catholic school and he doesn’t say that “proudly”. We get it Vinnie - religion isn’t your thing. For many, attending Catholic school was a proud moment. I’m not angry just disappointed in this comment.
