    Loved the interview. About the Sister, I am going to see her next weekend at Eagleman. I'm equally impressed and depressed that an octogenarian is likely going to crush my time. I am sure I will see her out there. When she passes me.

  2. I love the podcast and I am a superfan from the Philippines. I am trying out VINNIE's NO SUGAR NO GRAINS. I am taking out the sugar first and reducing my grain consumption. I am 5 days into it and have extreme cravings for sugar- cola, chocolate, etc. I now have cough and colds and a little feverish. I was wondering if this could be some form of DETOX symptoms? Did anyone else experience the same thing when they took out sugar and grains?

    On a different note. I heard you were drinking Scotch- isn't Scotch technically a grain? Isn't it called malt or GRAIN whiskey? I'm not a Scotch drinker and may be wrong.

    • Hi Victor, I've never heard of anyone getting a cough or cold from cutting out sugar… I'm afraid you've got a bug. Some may feel flu like symptoms for a day or so if they relied on heavy sugar. Yes, Scotch is made from carbs, but they are distilled down to nothing. I mention that I have the occasional Scotch, because I believe in full disclosure… I'm not one of those fitness guys that pretend to be better than everyone else. Two things to note here… I'm not a big drinker and If you are going to have a drink, it's better to have distilled alcohol than wine or beer. Cheers!!!
