And of course, the two LIVE group consults with Vinnie, twice a month. The plan is to have an item (like a hat) available exclusively to VIP Members. Broth, collagen peptides, and gelatin—what is different or better about collagen peptides or gelatin powder? (18:30) Marine collagen vs. Bovine collagen: What’s the difference? Collagen is good for skin, hair, and nails, but it can be great for joint health; however, it takes time. It’s not a miracle, but it can help. Real weight loss will occur slowly for most people and depends on what else you have going on in your body. (27:00) Reminder: a few days or weeks without weight loss is NOT a “plateau” or “stall”. Getting your mind out of the “diet mentality” is important! Vinnie is still having issues with Amazon making “Dirty Keto” available.
