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

In Episode 32 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” we are pleased to have two more awesome friends joining me and Mindy today. First we have a 300-pound weight loss success story named Jerome Biggars who was pushing 500 pounds and a whole host of health problems before he implemented some effective strategies for getting his life back. What an inspiring story! We also welcome a newbie to low-carb named Scott Milford who has been on his own pathway to low-carb living and got really interested in it after hearing Gary Taubes on NPR earlier this year. Jerome and Scott chime in on their thoughts regarding to move by the USDA to remove potatoes from the school lunch menus, the controversial new anti-cheese billboards in the state of Wisconsin, and some awesome low-carb recipes as always. You won’t want to miss a single moment of this half-hour of fun talking about healthy low-carb living!
