1000 miles and first steps…Listen to Vinnie & Co!!!

From Glenn Beck to Mike Rowe to Vinnie T…then Intro to NSNG….Fat 1 Fat 2…Beyond Impossible….Twitter and Facebook….Super Fan…eggs and bacon in the frying pan…First Batch of Nut Butter (only waited 2 months…but like you always say Hang in There 😎😉) What a ride! my 20 yr old son and I have been on the straight and narrow with y’all for about six weeks. 13# off and falling…4 notches off my belt loop doesn’t lie. He is also down on pants size. He had a tiny piece of bday cake last weekend and said he did not eat until the next evening and it “felt weird” to eat the cake😁 Thanks to everyone involved! As the youngest of 10 coming from a family of heart attack, stroke, diabetes type 2, hypertension, and some cancers, I am constantly seeking the way as I watch my older siblings age. Thanks Again😎 -Steve

Dirt Bike Family ,

Love this show

My husband and I heard about Vinnie on Mike Rowe’s podcast. We were immediately intrigued so we watched his documentaries. Read the PDF and then did a little more research. We started our NSNG life style change the day after Easter 2022 and so far we’re both feeling so much better and my husband has lost over 30 lbs and I have lost over 20. We ride dirt bikes and both being in our early 40s we thought the pain from broken bones was just something we had to live with not knowing we were inflicting that pain through our diet. We are so grateful for the education on food and how our body turns it to fuel/reacts to it and wished we would’ve received this information 20+ years ago. When Covid happened I put on what I called the “telework 20” but that is all behind us. Loving this new life and I know this is something we will continue. Thank you Vinnie and the crew.

Inspired me yet again

I got off the couch and walked the dog while I listened to Sunday’s show. Thank you!
