    BEST OF: Unhealthy Lunches - Episode 1693

    : Episode 1693 - For this Sunday School episode, we are running a BEST OF featuring the first Sunday that Gina ever co-hosted in 2017! Gina Grad (, ) joins Vinnie to read the menus and discuss the bad lunches of some rich schools published in the New York Times. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/10/best-of-unhealthy-lunches-episode-1693 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS UNHEALTHY LUNCHES NYT released an article documenting the bad lunches some rich schools provide their students It's appalling!  Schools aren't spending money on healthy lunches The best thing is basically a baked potato with broccoli and processed cheese. Pretty sugary, but overall, could be worse!! In the realm of school lunches, Vinnie is happy there is broccoli and cheese. "Italian Dunkers" - these are grains and tomato sugar, basically. Pizza sticks, lettuce salad, pudding dessert. This sounds pretty unhealthy on the whole. Lettuce, good, but the rest is about as bad as it gets . Plus, you're going to put dressing filled with sugar on this salad. No protein or fat in here. Tacos with extra processed stuff on top and around. Put it in a shell, and now it's unhealthy. Potato coins; this just SOUNDS bad. Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Corn, Dinner roll, & fruit is pretty typical. The chicken is breaded. It's bread on top of bread with one of the worst grains - corn. One of the worst items is juice slushies. Juice is ALREADY straight sugar, so this just sounds even worse. These meals will put kids to sleep. 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!

    Running Faster with NSNG®, Helping Family, & More - Episode 1692

    : Episode 1692 - On this Saturday show, Scott Wieczorek joins Vinnie to talk his weight loss journey, running faster with NSNG®,  endurance and stamina, training for a marathon, healthy eating with family and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/10/running-faster-with-nsng-helping-family-more-episode-1692 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS RUNNING FASTER WITH NSNG® Scott has a very Polish last name! Growing up, people always messed up his last name, and still do. He had run several marathons before NSNG®. He couldn't break four hours. While getting acquainted with his iPhone and the podcast app, he ran across the Marathon Training Academy podcast. He wanted to break that four hour barrier.  Scott heard an episode with Dr. Noakes, and heard how he did it by eating NSNG®. He has lost 40 lbs and broke that four hour mark for his marathon! His dad also passed away from a heart attack, and his mother had diabetes, so this has further encouraged him down this path. He feels he was robbed of some quality time with his parents. His mom, however, did reverse her diabetes in her nursing home by eating how Scott does. Eating more meat and way fewer carbs can really improve athletic performance. Vinnie used to use this sugary running snacks before he ate this way religiously. Now, he doesn't need them because he's fat adapted, and he feels much better for it. Not only does it improve performance, it also helps your stomach. Scott also ran fewer miles in his training when he ate this way. He didn't need to train as hard! The lessening inflammation with this way of eating also improved his performance, he thinks. FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now!

    Lessening Inflammation, Staying Active & More - Episode 1691

    : Episode 1691 - On this Friday show, Anna joins Vinnie for a special appearance, and the two talk evolving truths, lessening inflammation post-op, staying active, collagen and more.  Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/10/lessening-inflammation-staying-active-more-episode-1691 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS LESSENING INFLAMMATION When Vinnie's mom had her surgery, her knee was incredibly swollen. She thought the inflammation was a result of the broken leg. Vinnie said it should be a little swollen, but not so swollen. When Vinnie arrived, he restocked the fridge with high fat cheese, olives, sausages and pastrami, and more. Once she started eating these foods instead of sugars and grains, the inflammaiton went way down. Within 9 days, the cast was falling off. STAYING ACTIVE Working out is a poor way to lose weight. However, staying active is important. Don't not make time for exercise. Move from one sport to the next to the next. Letting life get in the way is a good way to find yourself sedentary. Everyone can stay in shape. Walking is great for this! 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.

    BEST OF: Nutrition on Trial with Dr. Tim Noakes - Episode 1690

    : Episode 1690 - On this "Best Of" show, we're playing an old show from 2017. Dr. Tim Noakes joins Vinnie to talk about his trial, his upcoming book Nutrition on Trial, the truth about the effectiveness of statins, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/10/best-of-nutrition-on-trial-dr-tim-noakes-episode-1690 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS TIM NOAKES Dr. Noakes was on the podcast recently here:  https://vinnietortorich.com/2020/09/trial-against-good-health-tim-noakes-episode-1671/ https://www.thenoakesfoundation.org/ He believes in the good of LCHF. He's a South African doctor. Tim is also a. writer of some really incredible books https://www.thenoakesfoundation.org/prof-noakes-bibliography One of Vinnie's favorite is Waterlogged. There is no set amount of water that one person should drink. Different for every person. You can actually drink too much water! Noakes had to go through a really difficult trial because he advised a low carb high fat diet to a patient. He was, of course, found innocent of doing anything wrong . His new book is about the trial, called Nutrition on Trial. It's about all of the smear-attempts, and the trial itself. Marika Sboros helps him out in this. They also talk about how low carb is real good for the insulin resistant. He hopes it will help young doctors change the 'typical' ways . Dr. Noakes ame across low carb because he changed his lifestyle, began running a lot. He felt awful when he ran. Then, he saw some evidence on the Atkins diet, changed to a low carb diet. He's had no sweets and incredibly limited carbs over the last number of years. Now, his health in general is SO much better Dr. Noakes has done a lot of good research, as well Prosecutors went against the constitution just to get Dr. Noakes to trial. It was such a pointed and nasty prosecution. They just didn't want any ideas that contradicted with their own financial gain gaining traction just like Noakes' ideas were . The whole trial seemed like a joke because it was so fabricated and ridiculous. Sugar kills. It frightens Dr. Noakes to see how people are hurting themselves on the inside, even though for about 20% of the population nothing changes on the outside. STATINS He does not believe in the hype around statins. Cholesterol is not as simple or as bad as the industry tries to make it. Statins really are not beneficial . The side effects truly make it not worth it. These aren't reported because the industry controls the results. FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now!

Always informative and entertaining

I’ve been listening for a year now, went back to listened to older podcasts, keep the NSNG community laughing and motivated to bring truth to the foods that are being sold to us. Thanks to all of those who make this podcast great.

NSNG good, Podcast in decline

I've been listening for a while but it's getting challenging to continue. The overall message of "stay away from sugar and grains" is a very good one, but the podcast can be exceedingly frustrating. The Monday show has devolved into Vinnie playing songs from his decrepid 1980s playlist; how they get any sponsors for the Monday show is a complete mystery. Don't waste your time with it; it's become unbearable. The Wednesday show consists of Vinnie advertising his own company's products; you can skip this one too. The Friday pod features a guest expert, and the Saturday show typically features a weight loss success story. These are the only two weekly shows worth listening too.
