It’s time yet again for our brand new fast-paced, half-hour podcast featuring average, ordinary people like you and me sharing about the tremendous positive impact healthy low-carb living has made in their lives. We call this new show “Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends” and it’s been so much fun sharing in this experience with my co-host Mindy Noxon Iannotti from the “Min Thick And Thin” blog. We’ve been privileged to have this new podcast do very well on iTunes so far that is still being featured prominently in the “New & Noteworthy” section for Health podcasts. We’d love to keep that momentum going by requesting your personal review of this new podcast on iTunes to let other curious prospective listeners know how much you love the show (if you don’t love it, just ignore this message–HAHA! Just kidding!). THANKS you guys for helping push this new show up the iTunes Health podcast charts…let’s keep it going!

In Episode 8 of “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends,” there’s two incredible low-carb success stories to share with you today. Our first “friend” on the Virtual Porch with us is low-carb online retailer Andrew DiMino from CarbSmart.com who has been on the low-carb bandwagon for over a decade personally eating this way and creating one of the most widely-recogized names in the low-carb industry serving customers with quality low-carb products. Also joining us is one of the most remarkable low-carb weight loss champions you’ll ever hear about in CJ Low Carb from her “Low Carb Corner” blog. Just one look at her inspiring before and after pics with her mom will get you motivated in your own low-carb lifestyle pursuit. I’m honored to have these two friends chatting it up with us in today’s episode.

Listen in as Andrew and CJ give us their thoughts:

  • Mindy shares about her dive into Fred Hahn’s “Slow Burn” exercise
