I am delighted to welcome the notorious Jimmy Moore as my guest for today’s show! Jimmy is a bestselling author, a writer, and the host of the Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb (LLVLC) Show.

Jimmy has had an impact on the trajectory of my learning journey. I initially connected with him around intermittent fasting when I read a book he co-authored with Dr. Jason Fung called The Complete Guide to Fasting. I later read his books, Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity, both of which I highly recommend!

Jimmy has been around for quite some time. He was very productive with creating podcasts at a time when there were very few people doing that in the keto space. In this episode, Jimmy and I have a frank and transparent conversation about childhood influences, how he pivoted from being an English Poly/Psy major to learning about the ketogenic lifestyle and the Atkins Diet, and later becoming an author. Stay tuned to hear our thought-provoking discussion!
