NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

We’re beginning to get into a pretty good groove with our brand new “Ask The Low-Carb Experts” podcast which is already doing very well on the iTunes charts being prominently featured in the “New & Noteworthy” section of Health podcasts for the past few weeks. CHECK IT OUT:

It’s been gratifying to launch this new LIVE show that airs on Thursday nights at 7PM ET focusing on specific topics of interest to the low-carb community and I am stoked about what we have lined up for you in the weeks and months to come (see below for who we have coming up as special guest “experts” on the show). In order to keep this early success going, I’d LOVE to have your help in continuing to get the word out and it’s super-simple to do: Go to the “Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts” podcast page on iTunes and leave us your review. It could be anything from just a few short words about what you think of the show or several paragraphs about how this is the best podcast you’ve ever heard…okay, maybe you don’t have to do that–unless you wanna! THANK YOU for helping us make this podcast another awesome addition to the low-carb podcasting universe. If you happened to miss my previous #ATLCX podcasts, be sure to listen to them as well: Episode 1 with Jackie Eberstein on “Weight Loss Obstacles” or Episode 2 with Dr. Ron Rosedale about “All Things Leptin and Episode 3 with Dr. William Davis about “Healthy Whole Grains?”

In Episode 4 of “Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts,” we have a worthy expert guest to draw wisdom from in Dr. Fred Pescatore, M.D. who is the author of several nutritional health books, including the New York Times bestselling book The Hampton’s Diet among many others. He is a traditionally trained physician who practices nutritional medicine and is internationally recognized as a health, nutrition and weight loss expert. You may have seen him in recent months as an expert nutrition contributor on “The Rachael Ray Show” and he is currently on the editorial board of US Weekly magazine as well as a regular contributor to In Touch, First for Women and Women’s World magazines. Dr. Pescatore also has a masters degree in public health and is deeply involved in the philanthropic community devoting his time working in hospitals in Tanzania, while also helping to support organizations in the United States. Prior to opening his own medical practice, he was the Associate Medical Director of The Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine working closely with the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins for five years. His extensive knowledge of the role nutrition plays in improving both metabolic and cardiovascular health makes him an excellent expert to call upon to address this week’s issue of cardio-metabolic health. We were sincerely privileged to have him join us on ATLCX answering listener questions in EPISODE 4 on February 2, 2012.
