I finished this book today. It really is as good as his blog. My one complaint, and the reason I'm giving it only 4 stars, is the numerous typos, primarily grammatical. Fix those and you have a 5 star book.

I've already lost most of my weight on low carb, but this book would be an excellect place to begin your lifestyle. Don't forget to buy the book that goes with your program, too (Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, The South Beach Diet, etc.).

This is not a "how to" book. It's an inspirational book with a lot of advice about how to overcome the difficulties that any change in eating and exercise will cause. Jimmy is honest about his struggles, and I think others can learn from how he overcame them. It's written in a conversational style and doesn't come across as preachy. He covers everything from water intake to exercise to supplements to staying motivated when the scale doesn't move.

He covers the 10 common reasons people say low carb isn't healthy, and warn that many people will try to discourage you because they feel it isn't healthy. (I've run into a LOT of this. Thankfully, I'm strong willed and don't let the naysayers get me off track.)

He talks about the importance of a support structure. This is doubly important in the face of the opposition low carbers have to face every day.

This book is well worth the read even with the typos and hopefully those can be fixed in later printings. Buy this book and read it! Then prepare to get healthy and lose weight by livin' la vida low carb!

I bought this thinking it would add to my low carb book library in a meaningful way; basically I found it to be a regurgitation and rehashing of blog postings galore. For someone who is just starting and wants a feel-good book about how someone else did it, this would be ok for them. If they were wanting a meaty 'how to' and immersion into the LC lifestyle, I'd definitely point them elsewhere. It's not really for someone who is a LC virgin (if you want them to learn), nor is it all that enjoyable for the LC veteran unless you don't mind spending money on a book that really only rah-rahs and doesn't contribute anything you can't find on various Internet chat boards for free.
I find it sad that so many people feel it's necessary to attack anyone who dares post a less than 5 star review. Even Dr. Atkins' books are subject to 1 star reviews and they are imminently more educational, in my opinion. It's entirely possible to not like a book and post accordingly, it doesn't reflect personally on the merit or worth of the author as a person. Take it accordingly.

As a columnist for a national diet magazine, I pay close attention to the launch of a new weight loss book.

I know from my own reader feedback that the number one need is for real-life info that's not based on gimmicks. Throw in a heaping dose of motivation and you have the ideal formula for weight loss success.

Well, here it is, folks. Jimmy Moore's book "Livin'La Vida Low-Carb" is the recipe for winning in the diet arena. Told from the heart, this friendly guide is packed with tips, little known facts and clever strategies to create your weight loss transformation.

Whether it is 20 pounds (or the almost 200 that Jimmy lost) this low-carb blueprint lays it all out for the reader. Jimmy's method of concluding every chapter with "Key Points" - along with his warmth and humor - instill his book with a Rocky can-do spirit.

This is not your typical Madison Avenue standardized and sanitized cookie cutter diet book. This is the real deal. If that's what you're looking for, then look no further.

While most people would look at Jimmy Moore today and think, "He's never had a weight problem," little do they know he lost 180 pounds in one year! In Livin' La Vida Low-Carb, Jimmy Moore provides the information you need so you too can become a weight loss success story. Whether you have 50, 100, or 200 pounds to lose, you will identify with Jimmy as he walks you step-by-step through his amazing transformation.

Jimmy Moore shares exactly what motivated him to get started and stay committed to the low-carb lifestyle. He teaches you how to get serious about your weight problem and permanently change your mindset so you can succeed. As a 41-year old mother whose kept her weight off 18 years, I can't emphasize enough that you must change your mindset to succeed.

Every chapter is easy to follow with an excellent review "Key Points to Remember" at the end. In the chapter, "Sugar is Rat Poison," Jimmy teaches you how to effectively break your sugar addition once and for all. By viewing sugar as rat poison, you will quickly train your mind to disassociate yourself from sugar. Getting sugar out of your system will quickly end your wild cravings, making weight loss possible. A key way I was able to beat my own weight battle was by eliminating sugar.

Livin' La Vida Low-Carb dispels the myths that living low-carb means eating meat, cheese, and eggs all day. Jimmy does a thorough job describing the importance of drinking enough water, along with sharing which vitamins have been valuable to him as he shed his weight.

Jimmy teaches you how to change your mindset to embrace exercise instead of thinking exercise is a dirty word. As you read Jimmy's approach to exercise, you will realize you can do it too.
