No Sugar No Grains No Misinformation


Vinnie Tortorich Notable Quotes

“I’m a sugarholic, too. I love sugar. I’m still addicted to it, that’s why I stay away from it…I won’t take that one bite because it’s easier to stay away from that one bite than to have it and then you start going, ‘okay, I think I saw some bacon chocolate in the fridge.’”
Vinnie Tortorich

“Your good intentions have been stolen. I’m just going to try to help you get them back.”
Vinnie Tortorich


Episode Summary

Many people want to start living a healthier life—be it by exercise, choosing what they eat, or by doing a complete overhaul of their current lifestyle. While some people are a hundred percent onboard with hiring a health coach, others might go for the DIY route and do the research themselves. And while that’s good, there’s still the danger of falling for misinformation that may actually do more harm than good.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat!, we have celebrity fitness trainer, speaker, podcaster, author, and filmmaker, Vinnie Tortorich on the show to talk about how to use our good intentions to fuel our search for the right information that would actually help us on our health and weight loss journeys.
