In Episode 19 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” it’s time to welcome in a couple more of our low-carb “friends” to join me and my co-host Mindy Noxon Iannotti in some good old-fashioned conversation about what real low-carb living looks like in the real world. First up, we have Oakland, California resident Tony Kenck from the “Emotions For Engineers” blog who brings his engineering-minded perspective to the discussion of ideas. Then we have Spokane, WA-based low-carber Kim Bosold to chime in on the topics of the day as well. And we’ve got a good column to share our opinions about today with “It’s Time To End The War On Fats And Battle The Bagel” by registered dietitian Jennifer Sygo in the National Post as well as our usual fare of delicious and nutritious low-carb recipes. Get ready for a half-hour full of fun and frolicking about the healthy low-carb lifestyle!
