    New Years Resolutions Progress - Episode 1759

    : Episode 1759 - On this Monday show, Anna Vocino joins Vinnie Tortorich to talk New Years resolutions progress, the most recent Saturday show and COVID-19 comorbidities, getting family on board (or not), easing into exercise, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/01/new-years-resolutions-progress-episode-1759 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS NEW YEARS RESOLUTION PROGRESS Anna and Vinnie like to check in for the first couple months of each year to talk continued New Years resolutions work. If you've fallen off, get right back on! You don't need to do everything at once...things take time to change. If you aren't losing weight yet, stick with it for 30-60 days, and then try to figure out what could be causing stalling. If you don't exercise yet, that's okay, ease into it. Go slow, and then go a bit slower. However you need to exercise is great. Keep cooking your own food -- stick to the stovetop recipes. Anna has tons of super easy and quick recipes in her cookbooks, Eat Happy and Eat Happy Too. Don't let yourself off the hook now. Put some fat with your veggies, they will taste better! COVID-19 COMORBIDITIES Many comorbidities around bad eating exist. Type 2 Diabetes and morbid obesity are big comorbidities. Lowering inflammation is, at the least, a good thing. Make sure you communicate with your family or spouse or friends about medical directives. You may need someone advocating for you in the hospital. They can advocate for you to have fewer carbs and staying in keto. This *could* help fight the virus... THE CARNIVORE UPDATE Anna was, as of this recording, 14 days into her carnivore diet. So far, it's going well. Anna is feeling good and enjoying it. She's in ketosis! Recently, she added a bit of non-dairy into her coffee. Otherwise, all she eats is meat and coffee.

    Cholesterol Tests - Episode 1758

    Cholesterol Tests - Episode 1758

    : Episode 1758 - On this Sunday School episode, Vinnie Tortorich, Gina Grad, and Andy Harris talk the Hilaria act, gaining lean muscle mass, cholesterol tests, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/01/cholesterol-tests-episode-1758 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS HILARIA BALDWIN The situation with Hilaria Baldwin (wife of Alec Baldwin), is pretty comedic. Gina and her co-host, Teresa, talk about this on their "Easy Listening" podcast. She reinvented herself...but then seemed to lie about it. She even seemed to forget the word for "cucumber," despite being born and raised here and knowing English. It's funny that Alec Baldwin played along with this. CHOLESTEROL TESTS Andy, Gina's fiancé, has run 4 marathons on NSNG. He runs faster and recovers much quicker. Now, he's trying to put on more lean muscle mass. He is concerned because he's cut down on the eggs and the like. His doctor told him his cholesterol was too high. However, his doctor, like most, didn't read and interpret a whole panel. You need to know your triglyceride, HDL, LDL levels and the breakdowns of each. If you don't eat enough cholesterol, your body will make cholesterol. You NEED it. Before you do these tests, you should be fasting. Your cholesterol levels can change from day to day, especially depending on what you eat. FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON ITUNES!

    COVID-19 and Sugar - Episode 1757

    COVID-19 and Sugar - Episode 1757

    : Episode 1757 - On this Saturday show, David Scholes joins Vinnie to discuss his wife's death from COVID-19 complications, COVID-19 and sugar, horrible hospital diets, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/01/covid-19-and-sugar-episode-1757 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS COVID-19 AND SUGAR David's wife unfortunately passed away from COVID-19 complications earlier this year. She was only 48 years old. His wife suffered from Type 2 Diabetes, but it was under control. She did not stick to NSNG® or a ketogenic diet. David noticed that in his family, the members who ate sugar and the like had worse symptoms. For a while, it seemed his wife was getting better, but unfortunately she ended up in the ICU and passed after a lengthy 5-week battle. Three weeks into her hospital stay, David finally got to see her. But, at that point, she was largely sedated, unfortunately. He was worried about the food she was fed in the hospital. David tried to get the hospital to try a ketogenic diet toward the end, and they started with a 72 hour fast. She was 30% better with oxygen intake toward the end of that fast. The studies on this have not been tested in humans but have had positive results in mice. FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON ITUNES! Please also share it with family and friends!

    Treating Low Energy with Dr. Teitelbaum - Episode 1756

    Treating Low Energy with Dr. Teitelbaum - Episode 1756

    : Episode 1756 - On this Friday show, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum joins Vinnie Tortorich to discuss treating low energy and fibromyalgia, vitamins and supplements and COVID-19, the SHINE protocol, the role of Vitamin D and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/01/treating-low-energy-dr-teitelbaum-episode-1756 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS DR. JACOB TEITELBAUM Dr. Teitelbaum is a super-doctor. He is an internist and an expert when it comes to fibromyalgia, pain, sleep and fatigue syndrome. He was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and therefore learned about pain management http://endfatigue.com Some of his great books may be found below. TREATING LOW ENERGY This can appear in a variety of ways. Fibromyalgia is the worst energy crisis--it is a disease. You can't sleep but are exhausted and have other negative symptoms. You're spending more energy than you make. Really, people need about 9 hours per night. If you simply have insomnia, there are good tools that are natural. Try some melatonin, or magnesium, for example. Low energy (and even fibromyalgia) is very treatable, fortunately. Diet can make a huge difference. Additionally, use your whole tool-kit.  Consider natural remedies (like vitamins), diet, exercise, medications, working on your hormones, and more. The tool-kit can be helpful for people with energy issues generally. Think of SHINE. S - Sleep. H - Hormones. I - Infections. N - Nutritional Supplements. E - Exercise. VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS AND COVID-19 There are studies being done on the interplay of vitamins and supplements and COVID-19. Many with severe COVID-19 have Vitamin D deficiencies.  It certainly isn't bad to take a bit more zinc, Vitamin D, and similar vitamins. This WILL NOT cure or definitely prevent COVID. This may help you if you get it, or improve your immune system to prevent you from getting it. Vitamin D acts as a hormone and is clearly a vitamin. We are still trying to figure out if certain diseases make Vitamin D low or if people with low levels are more likely to have these diseases.   FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON ITUNES!

    Our New Decaf Blend - Episode 1755

    Our New Decaf Blend - Episode 1755

    : Episode 1755 - On this Wednesday show, Andy Schreiber joins Vinnie to talk our new decaf blend, granted trademarks, Vinnie's truck, trying again after failure, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/01/our-new-decaf-blend-episode-1755 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS DECAF BLEND Pure Coffee Club is making a decaf!

Even Vinnie, who isn't a decaf guy, likes it. GRANTED TRADEMARKS We now have UltraFat® trademarked. See the little (r) up there? We also have a registered trademark for Squeeze Our Nuts®!

    Sticking to NSNG® and Healing Your Gut - Episode 1754

    Sticking to NSNG® and Healing Your Gut - Episode 1754

    : Episode 1754 - On this Monday show, Anna Vocino joins Vinnie to talk school-age bullies and friendship, John Dunn's progress coming off of meds, sticking to NSNG®, healing your gut, Anna's switch to carnivorism, Vinnie's addiction to sugar, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2021/01/sticking-to-nsng-healing-your-gut-episode-1754 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS SCHOOL-AGE BULLIES AND FRIENDSHIPS Both Vinnie and Anna faced bullies. Vinnie was deaf which caused bullying. Anna dealt with some mean girls. In high school, though, they both gained good friends. Vinnie had his friends but all of a sudden the jocks wanted to hang. He didn't ditch his old friends. Anna switched schools and had a fresh start! STICKING TO NSNG® If you've just started, stick with it! Check out the Facebook page where a lot of people share their progress. Even if the scale isn't moving, keep going. Make sure no sneaky sugars or sweeteners are sneaking in. Do it for a full 31 days before you step on a scale, if possible. Also, pay attention to non-scale victories, like increased energy, lost inches, and more! If it isn't working, schedule a consult with Vinnie, and maybe you can figure out if there's something amiss. You don't need to get fancy or do all carnivore (but you can), just eat no sugars (or sweeteners) and no grains. HEALING YOUR GUT If you have a lot of gut inflammation, there are several ways to try to fix this. You can try normal NSNG®, you will likely see improvements. Of course, consult with a doctor. You can fast (Anna doesn't like to). You can really cut out ALL carbs (by doing something like going carnivore). There may be other methods, too. There are tests that may reveal what foods you are more sensitive to -- again, consult with your doctor. FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON ITUNES! Please also share it with family and friends!

Putting Life into Living

Love listening to Vinnie and his regulars, Anna And Gina. Love his Friday and Saturday shows.

It can get a little wild at times which keeps it real.

I have been following Keto/NSNG/Carnivore since Jan. 2018 and managed to lose over 110 lbs and keep it off. Following Vinnie’s simple NSNG approach helped free me of the strict Macro counting I was doing on Keto which in turn made it a more enjoyable lifestyle and helped put Life back into Living and feeling better now in my mid-50’s than I felt when I was morbidly obese in my 30’s and 40’s.

Love your shows and approach to simply take back control of your weight, health and life....
