Low-Carb Conversations Podcast (Episode 10): Nick Peterson And Laura Dolson From The Low-Carb Cruise


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

Although we’ve been back from the 2011 Low-Carb Cruise for just a couple of weeks, I’m already missing the cherished time I had with over 100 of my fellow low-carb peeps. We had such an amazing experience on The 4th Annual Low-Carb Cruise leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida down to Key West, Grand Caymans and Jamaica and it seems like it’s over just when it’s getting started. And besides all the fun in the sun on a cruise ship, the low-carb conference part of this annual event is what makes the trip so totally worth it! If you haven’t already checked out next year’s all-star guest speaker line-up featuring top low-carb names like Gary Taubes, Dr. Jeff Volek, Chris Masterjohn, and others, then scoot on over to LowCarbCruiseInfo.com to get the full scoop on who’s scheduled to speak in 2012. We’ll be opening up reservations for the 2012 Low-Carb Cruise sometime in June 2011, so hopefully you can join us as we sail out of Galveston, TX port May 6-13, 2012 on the Carnival Magic to Grand Caymans, Montego Bay, Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico. MORE DETAILS COMING SOON!

Meanwhile, in Episode 10 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” you can relive the best moments of the 2011 cruise and learn a little more about what healthy low-carb living looks like in the world of real low-carbers. Joining me and my co-host Mindy Noxon Iannotti on this special Low-Carb Cruise edition of the podcast are two very good low-carb “friends” to chit-chat about their low-carb lifestyle. First we have a man with an awesome low-carb success story named Nick Peterson who shares his journey to low-carb and how it forever changed his life. Then we welcome my fellow low-carb blogger from the About.com Low-Carb Diets web site and sweetheart friend Laura Dolson to share from her vast experience living, researching and writing about carbohydrate-restriction for many years.
