guest post on vinnie tortorich

Back to the grind of the workweek. I was in Louisiana all last week for business, and this week I feel like it has been extremely hard to wake up. It must be that sweet Oklahoma air casting me under its spell. While I loved the sights and sounds, ok, more like the food, of Louisiana, I love being home. But, returning home to a guest blog post at Vinnie Tortorich. Even better!

After spending a week in Vinnie’s home state, also referred to as the “Sugar State”, I felt it was only appropriate to share a little sugar, or maybe no sugar on his site. Vinnie Tortorich, or more commonly known as “America’s Angriest Trainer,” keeps it real by informing us that eliminating sugars and grains from your diet will help you lose weight. Vinnie, and his co-host, Anna Vocino, the best voice in podcast radio, reach out to people of all backgrounds and abilities with this message through their podcast which is available on iTunes.

I first heard about Vinnie and Anna, in October of last year. I was dabbing into different types of “diets.” From high carbs to low carbs, from no meat to lots of meat. Being a baker by hobby, when I heard the message of “No Sugar, No Grains,” I didn’t want anything to do with it. I thought what most people thought, “where do you get your energy?” After listening to all of Vinnie’s podcast and communicating with him and Anna through Twitter, I began to unfold the hidden truths of sugars and grains. By eliminating sugars and grains and only that from my diet, I was down 12 pounds in 10 days, and looked pretty frickin’ hot in my Christmas pictures. It is such as honor to be able to share on Vinnie’s site.
