Vinnie mentions his battle with leukemia and how staying in ketosis has kept him in remission.

(25:00) They discuss further the benefits of coconut oil, and Mary also started using it and feels like her mental endurance improved.

Mary lists some of the topics covered in her book from the problem of too much sugar, ketones, fasting, your brain on coconut oil, and much more. Vinnie and Mary discuss various medications, how some do (and don't) function, and how some only "keep you perfectly sick". (55:00) Vinnie talks about how he knows of cases where people were on 3 medications for one issue, but that issue could be resolved just by proper eating. Mary talks about how even she at one time was unaware of how the current low-fat dietary guidelines were bad; consequently, she has changed her eating and has seen many benefits. Mary also mentions a chapter in her book about overcoming insulin resistance, which can also include virgin coconut oil. (1:04:20) She mentions how insulin resistance affects brain functions and other functions in the body. She talks about some of the things that are being learned about brain plaque and how it behaves.

As a result, they discuss Lisa's challenges growing up, how using her weight as an emotional shield is protection that kills, how NSNG® has helped her, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2022/09/protection-that-kills-episode-2190 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS LISA PEREZ Vinnie welcomes Lisa to the show and they start off talking for a bit about Lisa's background, and how they both share some Italian heritage. (2:22) Mostly Italian, but also an eighth Cuban, and she lives in NYC. People can still rag on Italians. Vinnie shares a little background from his side of the family that surprised him. Lisa found Vinnie through listening to Adam Carolla. (14:05) She relates to Adam a bit because they both had uninvolved parents; despite his rants, she feels he is compassionate because of his background. Both of her parents checked out when she was young. (18:00) Her dad left when she was very young and both parents were messed up and narcissistic. She always had to help her parents, not the other way around. Lisa learned from a young age how to be self-sufficient. Lisa tells an incredible backstory of all the ways she was able to be self-sufficient at a young age. (19:00) She did a wide range of jobs, including as a clown, phone sex employee, and delivery driver, to name a few. She now is a professional writer.

(39:00) PROTECTION THAT KILLS Lisa is now NSNG®; she gives a little more story of how she found Vinnie. (48:48) She has learned how to no longer use food for emotional protection. She is comfortable with herself, weight is no longer her blanket. The NSNG® Facebook group has been a great additional support for her. Now, Lisa has lost a good amount of weight and is still progressing. (51:00) Vinnie makes the point that the additional weight is protection that kills. (52:00) A lot of people have sabotaged their good progress as a result of abuse. (53:53) Self-sabotaging is pretty common but once you overcome it will feel so much better! NSNG® has been part of a larger process of working on herself in various ways and she has come far! (57:10) Don't be afraid to make a change. Easier said than done, but do it one day at a time. On NSNG®, you can eat food, you just can't eat BAD foods! (59:30) [the_ad id="20253"] PURCHASE BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE The documentary launched on January 11! Order it TODAY!

Episode 2188 - On this Sunday's show, Vinnie Tortorich and co-host Gina Grad chat about some music and movies, some stats about fast food, bodybuilding, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2022/09/fast-food-bodybuilding-episode-2188 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS FAST FOOD & BODYBUILDING Vinnie and Gina start the show with a chat about a little music, movies, and a couple of celebrities that have aged beautifully. (2:00) Gina then turns the conversation to how a friend has recently returned from living in Paris and has lost weight because of the lifestyle in Paris was so different--she walked everywhere and rarely ate fast food. (12:40) Gina then mentions some statistics that demonstrate how we as Americans are addicted to fast food. (13:50) Vinnie comments to be careful what you wish for. Vinnie gives an example of why even things such as protein bars aren't great. (17:50) Everyone wants everything quick and easy and doesn't think about the trade-off. The discussion turns to bodybuilding as a kind of trade-off because steroids may get you a certain aesthetic result, but the real result is horrible health issues. (21:30) Famous actors and bodybuilders are now dealing with heart and other health issues due to heavy steroid use. People in their 20s and 30s are now dropping dead trying to compete with drugs that are even more dangerous today. Vinnie always admired fitness trainers like Vince Gironda, who never took steroids. Vinnie has never taken any steroids either. Gina describes it as the devil on your shoulder. Vinnie and Gina go back to the saying: there is no free lunch.
