LCHF Family 002: What is NSNG? Released: June 29, 2017 Adam and Anne switched to LCHF (low-carb, high-fat) by first trying out NSNG. In a nutshell, NSNG means you eliminate all forms of sugar, sweeteners, and grain from your diet. Additionally, you switch to eating only certain types of fat. Ask yourself: does this fat come from an animal? Can I squeeze the fruit it came from and extract the fat that way? If so, it's ok for you to eat! Butter, lard, suet, fat on your steak--all ok. Olive oil and avocado oil? Also ok. Problems arise when you get into the fats that come from seeds like soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil, etc. Those seeds go through a chemical process to extract the oil from the seed. There is nothing natural or simple about that form of extraction and your body does not react well to these types of oil. They often cause inflammation, which results in sore joints, clogged arteries, and more. NSNG is the brainchild of Vinnie Tortorich, author of Fitness Confidential, and host of the Fitness Confidential podcast. He is a personal trainer and graduate of Tulane University. He has helped starlets in Hollywood get red-carpet ready by using NSNG and eventually decided to share his knowledge of how to lose weight healthfully by eating the right sorts of real foods. Neither his podcast nor his book is particularly family friendly, though, which is one of the reasons why Anne and Adam decided to start this podcast--so families could listen and learn about LCHF/NSNG together. One thing that prompted Anne and Adam to give his methods a try was the fact that there was no membership fees, no special meals to buy, no shakes or powders. Vinnie advocates for a switch to real foods; you just need to learn which foods our bodies are designed to handle and eat those. Rest assured that this is not a trick. You really do not have to buy anything to do NSNG or LCHF other than real foods you can find at most grocery stores. This isn't a weight-loss pyramid scheme in disguise. LCHF eating works because you eat foods that do not trigger an insulin response in your body. That insulin response is what causes your body to store energy as fat. Don't trigger that response, and your body learns to run off the energy that is available to it as you eat it or from stored fat. That's it. Honest. Vinnie's partner in crime is Anna Vocino. If you're thinking about making the switch to LCHF/NSNG, you're going to want to pick up her cookbook, Eat Happy. She took the time to create dozens of family-friendly recipes that you'll actually want to eat that are low in carbohydrate and high on healthy fats. As a result, you actually feel full after eating them and you don't trigger an insulin reaction which will cause your body to pack on fat. Her chili recipe and the recipe for faster(er) carnitas are family favorites in heavy rotation in the LCHF Family household. And the lemon cake (which is actually minimal sugar, rather than no sugar) is what Anne requests for her birthday cake every year. This cookbook is often referred to as the Bible of NSNG because people start to rely on it so much. It's not a requirement, though. There are plenty of other places online that have LCHF/NSNG recipes, including this show notes site. If you want to google for recipes, that's fine, too. Anne does it all the time. Again, one of the wonderful things about NSNG is you don't have to buy anything. There are just some things out there that can make the transition less time-consuming for you, that's all. But if you're working on a very tight budget, there are lots of recipes to be found through googling. That said, I really, truly love Anna's cookbook and am constantly recommending it to anyone who wants to make the switch to LCHF eating. She has a second cookbook coming out in November 2018, and the LCHF Family is counting the days until its release!
