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

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.

  1. Mark – a superb and eloquent rationale for the paleo/primal lifestyle. I can send this to my friends, relatives and fellow amateur athletes and know that if this does not change their mind then there is nothing more I need to do!

    You mentioned that few people train in the same way as you did when you were an endurance athlete. I think there are actually a surprising number of people who train for 60-90 minutes per day, 5-6 days per week simply as a calorie control mechanism – and although they do not consider themselves to be athletes and do not train at the same level, I would imagine the damage levels of the lifestyle come close…

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

    I’ll have to check out the podcast when I have time.

  3. 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)

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

  5. 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.

  6. Im a big fan of Livin La Vida Low Carb, yes, but a biggER fan of this simple yet POWERFUL quote:

    oh that Id have the chutzpah, errr, gumption to ever try and lend a hand.
