Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/04/working-in-radio-marathon-training-episode-1557 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WORKING IN RADIO Andy is engaged to Gina Grad!

Andy is the voice of the countdown for IHeartRadio.  He's a big VO guy and you've probably heard his voice... but he wouldn't consider himself famous. Andy's work allows him to work from home.  ANDY'S NSNG® JOURNEY Andy has been a marathoner for awhile. For a long time, he was just calorie in. He didn't worry about what he ate. He's the guy who has been able to eat whatever he wants without putting on a LOT of weight. Previously, Andy wouldn't look disgusting when he ate horribly, but he still felt horribly.  Andy ran his 6th marathon recently on this way of eating. He realized his diet had to change after his 5th marathon. He felt horrible during and after it and attributes this to his eating. FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now!

BEST OF: Ethically Raised Meat - Episode 1585

May 20, 2020 • 79m

: Episode 1585 - This Wednesday show best-of will give you a taste of a new show that will debut this Friday featuring Crowd Cow's Joe Heitzeberg. He joins Vinnie and Serena to discuss Joe's company, Crowd Cow, ethically raised meat, the health benefits of red meat, and more. Https://www.vinnietortorich.com/2020/05/best-of-ethically-raised-meat-episode-1585 PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS ETHICALLY RAISED MEAT Joe started a company called Crowd Cow. Here, you can buy meat from small vendors, you know who produces it and how it is produced. Animals that are treated well and killed humanely. You basically are sharing a cow with other people on the site. Not just cows, salmon, chickens, and many other meats. Serena has a hard time eating meat, but when she knows where it comes from and that it is raised well, it makes it easier. Higher quality, better raised. We all, at some level, want to know where our food comes from and when you buy in the grocery store, you really have no idea. There aren't many great natural sources of protein other than red meat. Red meat & eggs are the two true superfoods. Shawn Baker is an example of this. COW PARTS Cooking grass-fed beef is different -- Crowd Cow provides recipes for all different cuts, types, etc. They provide individual cuts, cut combos, and tons of different types of beef Some are tougher, some more fragrant Vinnie isn't a big cow organ guy, but some folks are and Crowd Cow sells organs too Be particularly careful with where organs come from Joe recommends browning and coating, throwing in carrots, mushrooms, etc to make it better Tongue is hard to find Grilled tongue is a top-level type of food Cooked for up to two days, thinly sliced, then marinated and grilled PROTECTING THE EARTH Many small farms which prevent over-development and pollution go out of business every year. If you support companies like Crowd Cow, you are saving these farms and helping the environment. Small farms also better in and of themselves in regards to pollution. Less mass production, less pollution. CRAFT BEEF Joe has a book on "craft beef". He learned not all grass-fed beef is created equal. Big producer TRUCK IN GRASS to feed cows and they get to count as "grass-fed". FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now! We need people to buy and review for it to stay at the top of iTunes pages.

She is a practicing orthodontist. We have canines for a reason! Our digestive system is very complex, including our saliva, in order to digest food. Humans were set up to eat whatever was available, according to Dr. Carr. Traditionally, though, this is meat and then plants but only when meat was scarce. Veganism is trying to humanize animals while ignoring the food chain. Teenagers can have teeth fall out from periodontal disease around puberty. Dr. Carr deals a lot with TMJ disorders.   FAT DOC IS OUT Go watch it now! We need people to buy and review for it to stay at the top of iTunes pages. Please also share it with family and friends!

DR. DREW Dr. Drew is an incredibly busy man. He has a radio show. He does some outpatient work as well, and appears on several podcasts, including Carolla. When you have worked 100 more hours a week as he once did as a hospital doctor, being hard-working in Hollywood is not so bad. Dr. Drew is a big egg guy. He also has some heart issues in his family. https://vinnietortorich.com/2018/08/dr-drew-pinsky-nsng-episode-1134/ PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS We now look at symptoms as a diagnosis. ADD meds are a big problem in our society. Many kids are over-prescribed. In our society, often more trauma means more drugs. Adderral is a huge problem in high schools and colleges. Students need to understand that this is a PED that messes with your brain. Statins are another problem, too. Many who eat NSNG come off of their statins which is funny because they're eating more fat and meat. Vinnie is not a doctor, so talk to your doctor about statins. Many athletes take inhalers for effects similar to other PEDs.
