      When celebrities need to get in shape for a movie they turn to Vinnie Tortorich...he tells them to cut all carbs & sugar. I have been on his NSNG diet "no sugar, no grains" for a few months and fat is melting away. I eat meat, veggies & low glycemic fruit (mainly avacado, olives, berries.) Oh..and whiskey is approved (but not totally recommended).

      I eat plenty of bacon & smoked meat and it's all approved. I thank the original "Man Show" and "Loveline" guys Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew who both follow and recommend his diet.

      I do cheat and have ice cream occasionally but it only seems to slow down the weight loss a bit.

      When I listen to some of the top doctors that Tortorich has interviewed it blows my mind about how mis-informed the public really is.

        Here's a Vinnie Tortorich question: if your plane crashed and you ended up on a deserted island and you only had one food available to you - what would you want it to be?

        Correct answer: STEAK!

        In the 1800's consumers took in 2lbs of sugar per year...now over 150 pounds on average!

          I don't know. I would have a hard time deciding between steak, bacon or mac and cheese.

        Totally changing the subject, but Larry that made me remember a debate a bunch of engineers I worked with when I first got out of school would have, "Here is the scenario: God comes to you and says, I am going to name three animals. You can choose one of them to stay on Earth, the other two are going to be removed forever. Cow, pig or chicken. Which do you keep?"

        We would debate for hours!

          Funny, because I was involved in a similar debate recently...someone is making a taco run at a Mexican restaurant. Do you order the steak, pork or chicken? I think my power rankings would be pork, steak then chicken.

          AmosMoses01 commented
          Editing a comment
          Definitely agree about that order! The debate would usually cover the fact that goats can replace the dairy capabilities of the cow, and all birds produce eggs so the chicken is replaceable, there's no substitute for bacon, or pork ribs, or pork chops, pulled pork, etc. At least that was my position! 😁

        Ed - based on my diet I should have terrible cholesterol results. Based on my wife's diet, she should have great results. Nope. Just the opposite. She has to be very careful about hers and I don't have to worry, at all. The doctor says that it is genetics. If your genes predispose you to issues with cholesterol you have to be careful with the diet. Thank goodness I got my mom's genes in this one.

          Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

          A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

          If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

          slow n sear

          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

          Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

          the good one grill

          The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          the good one grill

          The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

          Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          NK-22-Ck Grill

          Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

          GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

          grill grates

          GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

          Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

          masterbuilt gas smoker

          Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
