Anna recently visited her Dad and stepmom in Alabama. (10:00) People don’t even realize they are addicted until they aren’t (addicted). There is always difficulty in proselytizing to family and friends. Some people know better but still choose fake foods anyway. She tells of a recent sauce demo in Santa Barbara.

Vinnie emphasizes to stay away from non-food “foods” (19:30) Your best bet for better health is sticking to one ingredient, real, whole foods. The "ingredient list" on a steak is just steak.

Grab your pen and paper and take notes if you can! You may need to listen to this one a couple of times! A little chat about the movie “Vision Quest” leads into the topic for today: cardio training. (2:00) The show got a compliment the other day. (5:00) Vinnie is providing as many tools as he can, especially in the VIP group. Anna will be doing a cooking demo in the group soon. Aerobics or Cardio training is your friend. (7:45) Vinnie explains his approach to cardio goals. (10:00) Anna asks Vinnie about his longer hikes and what he takes with him. There are different ways to make exercise fun for yourself. (16:30) Vinnie often talks about an hour of cardio a day—it wasn’t that long ago that that was the norm. Now people spend more time on their phone or at a computer than they do doing cardio. (18:15) They discuss the idea of boredom during exercise. (19:00) There are a wide variety of ways to get cardio in. They also chat about getting sun in. Weight-bearing exercise: if you are an avid cyclist or swimmer, you still have to get on your feet and do weight-bearing exercise. (29:00) Weight-bearing exercise is how you build your bones up. Breaking up an hour of cardio into 2 or 3 parts is still great! (33:00) All About Zones Zone 2: What is it and why does it matter? (35:00) He gives examples of all four Zones. Everything is working in your favor in Zone 2. (36:30) HIIT is in Zone 4 and no longer burning fat. Anna asks about needing sugar in the blood for homeostasis. (40:30) Yes, in Zone 4 you may—but it only takes 1 teaspoon, not “carb loading.” You are not maximizing your potential by doing HIIT every day. (41:00) Your body needs 3-4 days to recover after long HIIT workouts. Don’t go doing Zone 4 every day to give yourself an excuse to have a donut. You’re still damaging your body with the sugar. HIIT is only good for increasing your VO2 Max. Vinnie explains building up your VO2 Max. (45:00) For all the cardio he does, Vinnie only seldom does intervals. How do you calculate Zone 2 for yourself, and do you need a heart rate monitor? (50:00) You don’t need a super fancy or expensive heart rate monitor to get your basic info. You can just take your pulse, but that can be tricky. Vinnie shares how to calculate your Zone 2 heart rate. (57:15) Take 180 minus your age. (Do not use 220 as your starting point; that is for calculating *maximum* heart rate). If you are a sedentary person, then minus 5 points. If you are already in good shape, you can add 5 points. The goal is 70-79 % of your maximum heart rate. Anna reminds us of many different grocery store chains where you can find her amazing sauces! They discuss Anna’s upcoming Eat Happy Italian book.

They open up chatting about the fitness of prominent low-carb doctors vs. vegan doctors. (2:00) Being lean and fit by eating right and staying active while growing older is important. (7:00) Your body only takes 4 grams of sugar at any one time; anything above that your body will treat as a toxin. (10:30) You need to eat the right things or your body will deteriorate. Every facet of your life will be improved by living healthfully. (13:00) Vinnie shares a recent X exchange about bananas. (15:00) The idea of “healthy carbs” is misguided. Anthony explains the biological functions happening with types of cholesterol. He shares an experiment with Oreos by Nick Norwitz. The misinformation is that your brain and body “prefer” sugars because they burn them first. Just because carbs get burned first does not mean they are the better fuel. Ketones are the optimal fuel for your body and brain. A frequent question Vinnie gets in his consultations is about statins. (23:30) Statins haven’t even been proven to reduce the chance of heart disease or stroke. Anthony explains the history and rate of increase of heart disease; for example, the Inuit people. (34:00) Four grams of sugar in the blood looks like a level teaspoon. (43:30) The ketogenic diet and being fueled by ketones can reverse disease; his example is Pompe disease. They discuss how the body can produce its own sugar if necessary; however, ketones are a more efficient source. (48:30) Athletes on a ketogenic diet can fuel their bodies faster than athletes who depend on sugar and carbs. They chat about carb-loading and how it burdens your body. Vinnie challenges the idea of having to have a fuel belt doing marathons or loading kids up with muffins during soccer games. (1:02:00) Caveat mTOR They discuss mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin). (1:05:00) There is still a lot to be learned about mTOR. If you are eating something you are supposed to eat, then your biochemistry should work properly. The idea that we are getting damaged by eating food that humans have been eating for millennia (meat) is ridiculous. mTOR is a natural protein kinase that fluctuates in the body. You will never micromanage your biochemistry better than your biochemistry can. Anthony reads an amazing excerpt about how the introduction of agriculture has affected human health. (1:10:00) Alzheimer’s dementia was observed in the early 1900s; however, no earlier medical literature has described that pathology.

(10:00) Vinnie talks about the Rocky Balboa movie he watched recently; even Vinnie needs to be motivated sometimes. Anna talks about getting her sauces into a new store with the help of Kurt Lepird. (16:00) Starting NSNG-- start with the pantry and clear it out. (19:45) The best way is to dive in—it will be most effective. They give other suggestions regarding temptation and when you live with others who aren’t NSNG. Anna shares what some of the challenges were when starting NSNG. (23:30) Out of sight, out of mind helps. THE FOOD LIST Anna reads a fantastic list of what she has in her pantry to get you started. (28:00) There are things like nuts that, although considered NSNG, can be overdone. Pay attention to your hunger cues and any rogue snacking. Vinnie always says you can not eat any food with impunity; his friend Don is an example. Anna continues the list of refrigerated items, like dairy.

(42:15) Anna’s new NSNG Italian cookbook is coming out later this year, but you can preorder it! Go through Vinnie’s Amazon link from his book club to find it at The Super Bowl is coming up. Anna’s got tons of recipes for game day! Vinnie explains the sugar in bacon. (53:30) Anna’s list is not necessarily comprehensive here, so you can reach out to her on X to ask questions. (56:30) She continues with the veggie list and gives clarity on items like sweet potatoes and squash. They chat about fruit and using citrus to add acid for flavor—that is different from drinking a glass of juice. Don’t forget—olives and avocados are fruits! There are freezer items: make room for meats and for saving bones for broth! (1:02:15) Do not use bones that someone has eaten off of as those will hold bacteria from saliva. Once you start making your broth, you’ll never go back to boxed broth. Anna’s recipes are so good—it makes her happy when people tell her that they didn’t use to like cooking, but now they do! (1:05:00) Stay away from grain-free items such as cassava and tapioca flours and starches and they will mess with your goals.

Vinnie has a myriad of things on his resolution list each year. (4:30) He doesn’t count the steps he takes while he gives phone consults—his cardio goals are separate from that. He’s also taking to heart the mantra of “sitting is the new smoking.” Exercise that prevents injury is what Gina is taking seriously. (9:15) No sitting while watching TV is her new habit. She emphasizes breaking habits down into manageable steps is the best way to go. A recent headline from the Daily Mail reports how certain “foods” contain toxins; however, some of those toxins have entered our soils, too.

Plastics are infusing even remote areas; Vinnie recalls Mike Keen, who has also been on the show. Mike kayaked around Greenland and collected seal poop, which when tested, was shown to contain plastics. “Dr. Midge” on TikTok reports on four foods that aren’t really “healthy” and cause insulin resistance and Gina asks for Vinnie’s take on that list.
