LCHF Family 013: Vinnie Tortorich Shares Insights for Student Athletes Released: September 7, 2017 In this episode, Anne and Adam interview Mr. NSNG himself, Vinnie Tortorich. He shares some great insight into whether student athletes can eat an LCHF diet (yes) and how they should fuel during a sport. We were surprised by his advice about teens fueling during sports. He said theyshould have a small amount of sugar (preferably in the form of fruit). However, his argument for this is that kids tend to tell us what we want to hear. They will tell us that they are staying LCHF, while also having chips and sodas with their friends when we aren't around. So, most student athletes, in Vinnie's view, should still rely on some glucose when they are in a physically demanding sport because they aren't, generally speaking, fat adapted. This is something you should try to maintain an open dialogue with your kids about. As many of you know, Kai gets to pick a non-lchf compliant food every week. That was our comprimise for her to be mostly LCHF. Even still, we know there are times when the kids are at a party or something and they have something they "shouldn't" have that will likely affect their fat adaption. If you are too hard-line strict with them, they may sneak foods without letting you know. If you are 100% sure of everything your child is eating, and you know they are keeping things LCHF all the time--this does happen as there are some kids who are really driven in these ways--then you don't need to give them a source of ready sugar as they train or play their sport, because they will function as any other fat adapted athlete and draw their energy from their body's energy stores. Vinnie is a personal trainer with a book and podcast devoted to helping people live without sugar and grains and reap the health benefits that come from doing so. (Parents: Be aware that neither the book nor the podcast are child friendly, though he does have short episodes geared toward kids that are released every other Sunday!) Vinnie mentioned his vitamin company, Pure Vitamin Club, and his personal consults. You don't have to pay for either to be successful with NSNG, though I will say that we love his vitamins (and they're much higher quality than the ones we had been buying!), and Adam has done a consult with Vinnie in the past and found it very helpful. It was an honor to have Vinnie on as our first interview. We were surprised by some of his answers and learned a lot. Hopefully, you will, too!
