Hey Amazonians, Amazonites, Amazonistas (whatever you want to be called)...what's going on? My name is Jimmy Moore and I'm the dude behind the wildly popular online health blog and podcast called "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb." On January 1, 2004, I was a morbidly obese 410-pound man on a one-way ticket to an early grave who decided to take back control of my own health thanks to the Atkins diet by going on to lose 180 pounds that year coming off of three prescription medications. Although it wasn't an easy road, I am grateful I found the healthy low-carb lifestyle because it gave me my health and life back again.
As 2005 rolled around and people began to take notice of my very noticeable weight loss, they wanted to know how I did it. After probably telling my Atkins low-carb weight loss success story at least a bazillion times, I finally said I would create a blog to talk about it--and so I did in April 2005. Today, the "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog boasts 250,000 monthly readers and counting. In 2006, I became the host of one of the biggest layperson-led nutritional health podcasts on iTunes called "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" featuring interviews with all the top experts in the world of diet, fitness and health. That podcast airs Mondays-Wednesdays has 700+ episodes and continues to attract new listeners in droves. I have two other podcasts--"Ask The Low-Carb Experts" and "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends"--you might want to check out as well!
These days I am super-passionate about helping empower people just like you to be in charge of your own health decisions and to stop abdicating that role to the so-called health experts who may or may not be giving you good advice. Educate yourself and be the boss of your own body and health. You can find out more about what all is happening with me at LivinLaVidaLowCarb.com. Feel free to e-mail me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. THANK YOU again for being here and I look forward to getting to know you and helping you become that happy, healthy, and fit person you were always meant to be.
