I first heard Vinnie on ACS several months ago, started listening to his podcast and finally got his book on Audible.
Great REAL world story teller and enjoyable personality.
This is a summary of fitness/diet guru Vinnie Tortorich.
He debunks the lies about whole grains, sugar, and more.
Great tips on working out, finding a trainer, and much more.
You will want to listen to his podcast right after finishing this book. I recommend it for everyone!
Inspiring, Educational, Humorous.
Vinnie, of course. His life story of being bullied as a child and surviving cancer and turning those experiences into a strength and eventually a fitness career is inspiring.
Vinnie destroys the myths behind diet and exercise. You will never look at a loaf of bread or a soda the same again.
Vinnie Tortorich aimed at telling his story of years in the personal fitness and training world and his own health demons. I wanted it to be more of a process book (do this, lose weight and look great) but instead we get a deeply personal story that inspires.
Vinnie gave a inside view into the personal training and fitness/health industry. Love that he read it himself. I really appreciate the lagniappe.
Vinnie presents diet and exercise information in my favorite manner - No Bull. He doesn't candy coat anything. You get the straight poop here about good and bad gyms, good and bad trainers, good and bad food and useless vitamins and supplements. He helps you make sound decisions that are not only beneficial but also save you money. No sugar, no grains, no calorie counting and use a jump rope! Sounds simple. How many people are going to do it? It’s hard work. It’s worth it! Listen to Vinnie.
I've listened to it twice now and will again. I pick up details each time I listen and the details that I remember become solidified for me. Vinnie helped me push past the wall I hit on my weight loss journey and I dropped the 40 pounds I was after. Can't recommend NSNG enough to my friends and family. Vinnie, YOU ROCK!
The message of NSNG. Best piece of advice anyone's ever given me regarding health!
Vinnie's bout with leukemia really moved me. My heart was all in by the end of that long moment.
I recommend Vinnie's book, and podcast, to anyone that shows an interest in getting fit!
The concepts really work and the information is presented in an interesting way
Enoyed it all
From the first few words spoken by Vinnie I was hooked! He makes fun of his voice on his podcast, but there is something about it that drew me in right from the start. I think it is so much better when the author records the audiobook themselves instead of hiring someone to read it. Vinnie's life is truly amazing and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to hear his story and to learn the principles of eating correctly as a lifestyle and not as a "diet" like the rest of the world wants you to. Vinnie pulls no punches and I believe that is what we need in society today. Coddling someone will never, ever help them. I've listened to this book 3 times myself since purchasing it in July of 2014 and I have recommended it to basically everyone I know. Thank you Vinnie for all your hard work and inspiration!!!
