  • The Harms of Bullying - Episode 2098

    08/05/2022 Duración: 29min

    Episode 2098 - On this Sunday School episode, Gina Grad and Vinnie Tortorich talk reduction surgeries, the harms of bullying, good and bad teachers, and more. Https:// PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS REDUCTION SURGERIES Vinnie and Gina both recently had 'elective' surgeries. Gina had a reduction surgery up top -- she's sick of being top heavy. This wasn't just cosmetic, though. It's for her health and her bones and such. For Vinnie, he had Guam removed -- a growth down below. Both are recovering now. THE HARMS OF BULLYING Vinnie was bullied as a child. His mom held him back because she thought he needed it. It made things worse. The other children, AND the nuns, bullied Vinnie. They called him "Vinna" because his deafness and speech impediment prevented him from saying his name correctly. They'd make fun of him in other ways too. This is why Vinnie does not like nuns -- they were supposed to protect him, and they hurt him. Then, the

  • Quicker Recovery with NSNG® - Episode 2097

    07/05/2022 Duración: 38min

    Episode 2097 - On this Saturday show, Dan Frey joins Vinnie and the two talk building things, running a podcast, quicker recovery from injury and surgery with NSNG®, and more. Https:// PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS DAN FREY This is Dan's first appearance on the show! He is a software engineer. And, like Vinnie, he loves building things. His wife will find something she likes on Etsy and ask Dan if he can build it. Dan will say yes and figure it out! Vinnie's building a kayak for himself right now. Dan has lost 100 lbs! RUNNING A PODCAST It's tough to run a podcast. Lots of people want to have their word, but it's difficult to establish an audience and keep them coming back. This is not easy work or passive income. Sometimes Vinnie still has to pay out of pocket month-to-month. If you want to find success, find an audience and keep them coming 2000+ shows later! Just don't expect this to be a significant source of income. QUIC

  • Intermittent Fasting Transformation with Cynthia Thurlow - Episode 2096

    06/05/2022 Duración: 01h05min

    Episode 2096 - On this Friday show, the wonderful Cynthia Thurlow, Nurse Practitioner, joins Vinnie again, and they talk the intermittent fasting transformation, cholesterol levels and the harms of statins, hormones in women, menopause, and more. Https:// PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS CYNTHIA THURLOW Cynthia is a nurse practitioner. She realized she wanted to have deep conversations with her patients about nutrition and lifestyle, so she left her job which didn't promote that. Almost simultaneously, she began talking to many women. These women, like Cynthia, had just been told that they had to accept they'd gain weight in their 40s. Cynthia wasn't satisfied with this. From here, she did a TedX Talk which went big, and wrote a book. She focuses on intermittent fasting in women because most resources do not focus o

  • Channeling Enthusiasm - Episode 2095

    04/05/2022 Duración: 36min

    Episode 2095 - On this Wednesday show, Anna Vocino joins Vinnie Tortorich and the two talk catching up with vitamin orders, channeling enthusiasm into your goals and passions, come-from-behind stories, and more. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS VITAMIN ORDERS We are currently catching up on orders. Some of the ingredients in our vitamins were not available, and there wasn't much we could do. That's why Andy isn't on the show today - he's busy making things right and keeping PVC on track. CHANNELING ENTHUSIASM If you're enthusiastic and committed, you can come from behind and succeed. You have to jump in to what you really want. Many people do this with NSNG® -- they have come from behind stories. Some of these folks have lost ~300 lbs. These stories don't just come in the form of health stories. Think of the making of The Godfather. Think of trying for that goal you've always wanted to achieve. Think of a passion you'd like to b

  • The Quest For Health - Episode 2094

    02/05/2022 Duración: 01h26min

    Episode 2094 - On this light Monday show, Anna Vocino and Vinnie Tortorich discuss saying goodbye to Guam, post-op recovery, and Rina joins them to talk carnivore, the quest for health, edutaining, and more. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS POST-OP RECOVERY Vinnie had a growth 'down there.' He called it Guam -- he took care of it, but it didn't have full rights, etc. After many years, he found a great urologist and had it removed recently. We say goodbye to Guam! This was just an elective surgery because it got too uncomfortable. He had a drain and had to get checked out. Vinnie feels great, all things considered. He's grateful this way of living reduces inflammation. THE QUEST FOR HEALTH Rina has a fabulous YouTube channel. She tries to edutain -- make educational videos that people also enjoy! Rina has tried various lifestyles and is open to learning more. She has had a wonderful exper

  • Combating Nausea & Motion Sickness - Episode 2093

    01/05/2022 Duración: 26min

    Episode 2093 - On this Sunday School episode, Vinnie Tortorich and Gina Grad talk food poisoning, Guns N' Roses, travel tips for motion sickness and combating nausea, and more. Https:// PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS COMBATING NAUSEA Gina had terrible food poisoning last week. She always cooks her meat so that she can't even worry whether it's fully cooked. Vinnie's had food poisoning and salmonella before. He was on the ground with salmonella, so dehydrated. Vinnie likes to travel, but he gets unbelievably nauseous from motion sickness in cars and on planes and boats, and even after spinning around a couple of times. He doesn't love Dramamine, but he doesn't want to stop traveling.  The little bracelets didn't work -- neither the electric nor the accupressure.  Now Vinnie uses scopace -- he was prescribed this by a doctor. He loves it, in part, because he can drive after landing. They don't make it anymore, but you can st

  • BEST OF: Managing Type 1 Diabetes with Bethany McKenzie - Episode 2092

    30/04/2022 Duración: 01h07min

    Episode 2092 - On this Saturday show, we play a "Best Of" featuring Bethany McKenzie. The two talk Bethany's son's diabetes diagnosis, managing type 1 diabetes, Bethany's documentary: The Diabetes Solution, empowering other parents, and more. Https:// PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS TYPE 1 DIABETES DIAGNOSIS She and her family were featured in the first Fat Doc. Her son has Type 1 diabetes. The family discovered this when she came back from a trip, and her son's weight had dropped from 46 to 40 lbs. Immediately, she rushed him to the hospital and he was diagnosed. In that moment, they realized they would have to change the way they eat. The dietitian was prescribing them all kinds of sugary foods. She was told the kid needed 60g of carbs a meal, and she wanted to do anything she could to help him, so she did it. She feels her diet was healthier before this. For 3 years, Bethany followed these rules and h

  • Benefits of the Carnivore Diet with Dr. Shawn Baker - Episode 2091

    29/04/2022 Duración: 52min

    Episode 2091 - On this Friday show, Dr. Shawn Baker joins Vinnie for another appearance and the two talk benefits of the carnivore diet, shredded bodies and lifting, rowing, and more. Https:// PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS DR. SHAWN BAKER Dr. Baker has been on the show before. He feels that he has been shadow banned on social media because of his views. It seems they prefer the vegan view. But he's incredibly healthy and his been carnivore for some time. It's tough because all Dr. Baker does is follow the science. Your political persuasion should not matter: this is about being healthy and feeling good. He is all-in on the carnivore diet, and is also a big rower like Vinnie! THE CARNIVORE DIET Before it was coined 'carnivore,' it was mostly called the zero-carb diet. But Dr. Baker realized "carnivore" was more accessible. He did an n=1 experiment and felt so much better eating this way. Dr. Baker's diet is

  • BEST OF: Lifestyle-Based Intervention with Dr. Bret Scher - Episode 2090

    27/04/2022 Duración: 01h02min

    Episode 2090 - On this BEST OF Wednesday show from May 2021, Dr. Bret Scher and Vinnie talk learning from your clients, nutritional advice, properly interpreting cholesterol numbers, the sugar and grain industries, lifestyle-based intervention, the Diet Doctor, your body's use of fat, and more. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS DR. BRET SCHER Like Vinnie, he has a podcast and does consults. He is an excellent cardiologist. There are methods that will help a majority of people, but you tinker those methods to the individual. This is what makes consults so rewarding and keeps Dr. Scher and Vinnie learning. Some doctors stick to conventional wisdom; others want to be on the cutting edge. Doctors who see it the latter way, like they have to keep learning and improving, are usually the better doctors. Like for trainers, doctors receive very little nutritional training. Though doctors don't usually deal with bro sci

  • Creating New Sugars & More - Episode 2089

    25/04/2022 Duración: 01h13min

    Episode 2089 - On this Monday show, Anna Vocino and Vinnie Tortorich talk misbehaving on the internet, creating new sugars, making a difference, staying or getting off of medications, and more. PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS CREATING NEW SUGARS There is a patent war over new sugars. They know they haven't gotten it right. One of them is called tagatose.  They're saying this is going to be okay for diabetics -- this seems oxymoronic. It's similar to sucrose, and side effects are very similar to things like erythritol.  This doesn't seem healthy at all. The article also says consumption of more than 30 g (which is something like one coke), will cause gastric disturbance. Clearly, this can't be good. The sugars don't even work well and they're investing billions into it. This makes both Anna and Vinnie sad -- they just want people to know the truth and not buy in. Vinnie and Anna vs. billions of dollars. This is a hard battle t

  • Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Levels with Dr. Fung
