In Episode 16 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” it’s fun times spending a half-hour shootin’ the breeze with two more fantastic friends in the low-carb community. Joining me and my co-host Mindy Noxon Iannotti today are Cindy Sneed from Houston, Texas and Patty Pittman from Maine who runs the “Primal 30 Day Challenge” blog. We had a great time discussing a wide variety of topics, including the recent controversy in the low-carb community surrounding the “low-carb” claims made by Dreamfields about their popular pasta product line. Cindy and Patty also share some delectable low-carb recipe ideas and talk about whether they think it’s better to cycle on and off eating carbohydrates or staying strict low-carb all the time.
