Power Quotes From The Show

[click_to_tweet tweet=”There's this idea that healthy eating means bland, plain foods all the time. That's completely false. Natural food that comes from the earth is neither.' – @VinnieTortorich” quote=”There's this idea that healthy eating means bland, plain foods all the time. That's completely false.

“When it comes to fitness, you can either use it or lose it. If you're not using your muscles and helping your body grow and get strong, then you're just dwindling away. What kind of exercise you decide do doesn't even matter. Go for a walk, on a bike ride, or use a jump rope for a couple of minutes. It doesn't matter.” – Vinnie Tortorich

“You shouldn't constantly cycle in and out of a Ketogenic Diet because that creates a lot of acidity in your system which can lead to problems like gallstones. Once you're in, you're in. You don't want to go crazy and have a carb night once you decide to get off the Keto Diet.” – Vinnie Tortorich

“Don't sleep in every morning. Instead, get up and get moving. Whether you have something to do the next day or not, get up and create something to do – even on the weekend. Have a healthy breakfast with some protein like a whole egg and then do something physical. You don't have to do tons of exercise first thing in the morning, but maybe some stretching or a light walk.” – Vinnie Tortorich

“Everyone has their own journey, but pretty much everyone just gives up after they fail. They don't see failure as another step towards success. If you think like that, then you're missing out because no one ever succeeds on the first try. We need to learn from our own failures.” – Vinnie Tortorich
