Interview with Jimmy Moore of Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb

By Mark Sisson
9 Comments

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Jimmy Moore. These days you can hardly say low-carb without thinking of him first. That’s because he has a great low-carb success story and has created an amazingly comprehensive one-stop low-carb shop in his blog, podcasts, daily low-carb menus and other resources for all low-carb dieters.

I caught up with Jimmy recently for a podcast on his show. We discussed my past life as a marthoner and triathlete, the Primal Blueprint and gene expression, Primal Nutrition (my supplement company), and (surprise!) low-carb living. Check out the podcast and then come back to hit me up with a comment to let me know what you think. Also, be sure to check out all of Jimmy’s sites below.

I’m glad for his success, but I try to avoid his website because his writing style turns me off.

Methuselah, you’re right. Many people still do what I call “chronic cardio” in an attempt to somehow burn off stored fat. I almost cry when I see the same overweight people in the gym everyday for years making no progress. Of course they are sabotaging everything with their diets and trying to overcompensate by accumulating big numbers on the LED readouts. (sigh)

Great interview, Mark! I enjoyed listening. The “Baton Death March to Nowhere” was a great quote.

Jimmy’s podcast and your blog are two high quality sources of info, so the two of you combined was good to hear.

Please go back on at some point to talk more about the primal lifestyle.
