INTERVIEW: An interview with Vinnie Tortorich, hosted by Susan Birch – The Health Detective

I had great pleasure in chatting with Vinnie Tortorich, about his latest documentary, Beyond Impossible.

Vinnie is a celebrity trainer, podcaster, author of a best-selling book and producer of 3 documentaries exposing the dark underbelly of the food and fitness industry and the lies they tell us.

Today we take a deep dive into his latest film, Beyond Impossible. This is well worth watching and an excellent antidote to constant barrage of messages we are getting from about the health and environmental dangers of eating red meat, along with animal welfare concerns. We talk about what inspired him to make this film, how he gets celebrities into shape and how he was one of the first people in the industry to understand the impact of sugar and grains on our health and weight-loss.

Vinnie has been in this industry longer than I have and has enormous experience in figuring out what does and doesn’t work for weight-loss, improved health and thriving.

He’s been a personal trainer to people from all walks of life for thirty years. He’s worked with Hollywood celebrities, captains of industry, stay at home moms, working moms, pregnant moms, ultra-athletes, Ironman triathletes, injured and post-surgical clients and even children with the beginnings of a weight problem.

He has an excellent no-nonsense podcast, called Fitness Confidential that has been running for more than 10 years, with his co-host Anna Vocino.
