I enjoyed listening to this book and will listen again and again. To sum this book up I would say it takes you on a journey of Vinnie's life and how he became the person he is today. I love that he did not use another person to read this book - if he would of we would miss out on all the extra stories/information he added to the audible.
Vinnie Tortorich added extra info/stories to the audible. This is his life so he has the passion for the words in the book. His passion shows through from the start to the end of the book.
Vinnie's experience with cancer, fighting and overcoming.
This is the first audible that I listened to within a week and plan to listen again and again to the book. I am sure I will pick up more pieces of information every time I listen.
Too much fluff. 90% of the book is about the Vinnie grabbing women's tits and less about his NSNG protocol. I appreciate the simplicity of the NSNG lifestyle but the over the top life stories go on and on.
definitely enjoyed listening to it in 2 days but i was hoping it would be a lot more about fitness and diet and less biographical! heard about it on pat flynns podcast and thought it was about fitness. ps the "no grains" thing seems pretty unpractical and leaves me hungry and unsatisfied. and if the body prefers fat over carbs and doeant NEED any grains, then why does vinnie eat sandwiches (and a burger) during his ultra bike race instead of taking off the bread!!?? its not like he didnt have a whole team to prep food or get grainless, fatty food for him!! i think this is a short term, lose weight fast fad and that whole grains are essential to sanity!
Vinnie does a wonderful job telling his story about fitness and a few other stories that I was unaware of, but pleasantly surprised to hear about. I look forward to listening to his podcast and any other books he may decide to write.
To know Vinnie, is to love Vinnie. I think you will find him funny, intetesting, and really honest. I have listened to both his podcast and this book. He usually alludes to many things in his podcast but the datails are here, in the book. its almost a companion peice for the podcast. If you ate looking for a little inspiration to get back in shape all you need is right here. Thanks Vin.
Speaking honestly Vinnie is enthused to tell you all about himself, which if you're looking for that he does a great job with his 'fitness memoir'. But if you're remotely clued in about fitness, and/or looking for more information look elsewhere because the book isn't very informative otherwise.
I had no idea people like Vinnie existed. Great diet advice right out of the box - didn't perpetually tease those knowledge nuggets until the last chapter. Read like an advice book yet with an amazing story.
Vinnie's fantastic. As he narrates his own story, his passion for healthy living and helping others get fit is very apparent. This is not your typical get fit quick book. Vinnie doesn't mince words, he's Italian for crying-out-loud. Fitness takes consistency and effort. No shortcuts, except passing on the grains and sugar. If you like a great life story, looking for motivation to get healthy, or just want to hear a guy who didn't start out in life with a golden tongue entertain you for an entire book; you've found it here. Enjoy and thank you Vinnie!
Great inspiring book! Loved that he didn't leave anything out and he shared this. Sticking with the plan now- No Grains or Sugars!
"Funny and informative"
I wasn't expecting quite the listen that I got. I've listened to a few fitness books and they all go in to great detail about the science of nutrition and exercise. This book doesn't. It does tell you all you need to know, wrapped up in funny and entertaining anecdotes. It's well worth a listen even if you're not into fitness.
"biggest waste of time"
it was terrible. the word fitness should not be in the title. waste of time
"Provides a great insight and some good tips"
It provides some great advice and tips while also being engaging and entertaining
I had no idea who Vinnie was or what he did and took a chance in downloading this book. it ticked all the boxes, informative, interesting, engaging and funny.
"Entertaining and worth a listen"
Yes it gives a useful insigt into the authors journey
If they wanted a fitness book with a different slant then yes!
Yes it was worth listening to..
A different slant on a fitness book which kept me entertained and the underlying message with regard to Carbs etc.. has some good real foundation currently.
"grows on you"
among the best
At first I thought it would be wacky American but Vinnie conversationalist style grows on you and I really enjoyed
no other audio books listed
too long for that but listened every opportunity I got
Would like another book by him
