(2:00) The VIP Group is open until today, Monday 7/8 at MIDNIGHT. (8:00) There is new content being added, including exercise videos. 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.

You can go to Vinnie's website and enter your email to get notified when it is up on Amazon. When it comes out, make sure you watch and rate it.

(3:00) He is only telling the truth, so why the delay? He’s realizing how much of an effect chemo has had on him. (13:00) But he knows how lucky he is compared to others who he sees struggling with cancer. He hopes to make it out to California later this year. Vinnie addresses a question regarding lifting weights and tendon strain. (22:00) Even healthy people can have tendon strain as they age. Just take a little more rest before your next workout. Taking TRT isn’t necessarily beneficial in the long run. It has been what he has noticed with clients and people in consultations. A food question about weight creep and getting back on the wagon with NSNG®. (28:30) Often it’s non-NSNG® foods sneaking back in, or overconsumption of things like dairy or nuts. Other culprits are flavored “zero sugar” beverages, and seed oils. Wine is a big culprit for many people. (35:00) A lot of American wines have added sugar. Alcohol isn’t great for you anyway and will hinder your weight loss goals. Is stevia really that awful?. (42:00) There are benefits to getting away from it, the sooner the better. At the time of this recording, Vinnie’s new documentary "Dirty Keto" was supposed to be released; however, it has hit a delay.

They talk about releasing a documentary and dealing with Amazon. (21:00) "The Incredible Shrinking Man" is Vinnie's name for Peter’s health journey. (30:30) He eats a mostly carnivore diet with occasional vegetables. Occasional intermittent fasting has helped. He has noticed a huge difference in his energy. They talk about water weight and exercise. (42:00) Sometimes added water weight is an indication of inflammation. Fat shaming is bad, but there is a concerning level of what has become considered acceptable as “healthy." (52:00) Social media, video games, etc., have caused people to forget about the real consequences of indulging. (56:00) Things are glamorized when maybe they shouldn’t be. But there is an increase of people trying things like the carnivore diet, and seeing positive results. Pay attention to what Peter is doing—some interesting projects are coming out!

(2:00) Often song lyrics will show how times don’t change much. Gina shares a recent experience at a hotel and makes Vinnie explain his point of view on lettuce. (6:00) Meat on lettuce is unnecessary, as far as Vinnie is concerned. Even at high-end grocery stores, premium items can still be filled with bad ingredients. Vinnie had to ask his doctor about taking an iron supplement; the doctor’s response surprised him. (12:30) Doctors are very busy and you need to be proactive in your health. It may be that Vinnie’s overall health is so good, it appears his doctors may need to monitor him less. Back to Vinnie’s “lettuce rules." (26:00) What about smoked salmon on a salad? What about a salad as an appetizer? Vinnie never likes to feel stuffed or gluttonous, which leads to the duo philosophizing on some biblical rules. (30:00) There have been delays in Amazon posting "Dirty Keto"; as a result, Vinnie is considering other distributors.

(25:30) He’s looking for an alternate plan in case the launch on Amazon doesn’t work. Anna shares a question from a listener about Zone 2 training. (36:00) Alternating running and jogging is fine—moving is good! Exercise is never wasted time!

(9:00) An unexpected diagnosis turned their world upside down. They at least knew what to do nutritionally: the ketogenic diet. The American Cancer Society contradicted itself in its own statement. (12:00) Michelle and her wife saw over 32 medical professionals about the cancer diagnosis, and only one made a suggestion about nutrition, and it was incorrect advice. (15:30) She shares why a ketogenic diet is beneficial and what kind of changes they made in nutrition. Being in ketosis and paying attention to nutriton can help give you a fighting chance. The ketogenic diet isn’t a cure, but it can significantly improve the outcome of many cancers. (23:00) What did Michelle do for research? (27:00) She understood cancer is a metabolic disease. They discuss how a vegan diet may make it hard to get enough nutrition. Michelle’s wife needed much fewer radiation sessions than doctors predicted. Six months later Corene is in remission. (44:00) She gives more details, including how doctors didn’t even ask about Corene’s specific diet. Michelle will be teaming up with Dr Ken Berry for a new initiative regarding diabetes.

Working Against Nature with Dr. Cate Shannahan - Episode 2495

5/31/2024
Episode 2495 - On this Friday's show Vinnie Tortorich speaks with Dr. Cate Shanahan about her new book about oxidative stress, the downside of working against nature, and more. https://vinnietortorich.com/2024/05/working-against-nature-dr-cate-shanahan-episode-2495 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS YOU CAN WATCH ALL THE PODCAST EPISODES ON YOUTUBE - Root Causes of Oxidative Stress Cate first noticed issues in pro basketball players. (2:30) What she found out was a symptom of metabolic problems. Dr. Shanahan was one of the early voices who emphasized the toxicity of seed oils. (6:00) She explains how she started paying attention to seed oils. Her background in biochemical engineering transitioned to medical school; however, her personal medical issues led her to a deep dive into health. Her book “Dark Calories” is available in Vinnie’s Book Club . She explains the meaning behind the name. (13:00) Metabolic disease is rampant. Being “hangry” is a sign of insulin resistance, which is a stage of metabolic disease. New standards of testing need to happen; she’s a big believer in using the HOMA-IR testing. They discuss oxidative stress and seed oils and how they are included in many things. (20:00) She defines what she has named as “The Hateful 8.” It’s a similar effect of oxidation as cigarette smoking. Vinnie asks her about her list called the “Delightful Dozen.” (27:00) She hopes to get more doctors on board in expanding the message regarding various oils and the effects of oxidative stress. (35:00) Free radical particles are caused by oxidative stress; vegetable oils are “oxidative stress in a bottle.” (42:30) Empty calories from processed foods and sugars can cause them too. She also challenges the use of protein powders. (46:00) Respecting Nature and how it works is important; trying to “outsmart” nature is a dead-end game. (54:00) The energy model of insulin resistance has to do with your body not being able to use its body fat as fuel. (56:00) Her book “Dark Calories” provides information that can help you reduce cravings while you heal from insulin resistance. (57:00) Working Against Nature Vinnie asks Cate how can people do better. (59:00) She provides several practical food suggestions. “Root cause” knowledge will help you. They pivot to cholesterol. (1:04:00) Cholesterol is a nutrient—it is a building block of cells and hormones. The egg is the most complete package of nutrients you can get. There are plenty of untruths in the “Game Changers” film; they elaborate. (1:06:00) You need to know what is both good and bad about the medical system. The conversation on nutrition is the American College on Lifestyle Medicine, which is a Seventh-Day Adventist group promoting their religious stance on eating and lifestyle. (1:10:00) Vinnie asks Cate’s take on GLP-1s. (1:14:00) She is against them for many reasons; the first one is that those drugs are working against Nature. Acute muscle loss is happening to patients on drugs like Ozempic; remember your heart is a muscle. She lists other concerns she has about them. There's a new NSNG® Foods promo code you can use!
