What a fantastic few days it was spending time in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia last week visiting Christine’s family, playing a round of golf with my father-in-law, going to my cute 4-year old niece’s birthday party, playing a friendly game of Texas Hold ‘Em, meeting several fans of my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” work, and autographing copies of my new book Cholesterol Clarity. But the most exciting thing was recording an interview with the lovely CBN News correspondent Lorie Johnson (you may recall she did this fascinating report on ketogenic diets and cancer last December). Lorie is a BIG FAN of low-carb, high-fat diets and has seen the positive health improvements herself eating this way. You can connect directly with her on Twitter and Facebook.
Lorie contacted me a couple of months ago about doing a story on my low-carb health journey and she was thrilled to hear I had a new book to share as well. We set up Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 9:00am to record what will eventually be a 5-minute segment appearing on “The 700 Club.” Interestingly, by the time they got footage of me and Christine being interviewed (Christine was scared half to death–LOL!), images of me cooking in the kitchen (which was funny because it was my mother-in-law’s kitchen and I didn’t know where ANYTHING was!), and some other images like me and Christine holding hands walking down the street, it took nearly five hours! Who knew it took this much time for such a short segment? But it was LOADS of fun and I can’t wait to share this with you guys when it airs. I don’t have an air date just yet, but I’ll let you know as soon as Lorie lets me know. Stay tuned!
This is a HUGE deal since “The 700 Club” is watched by millions of people around the world on a daily basis. I’m so grateful for this unique opportunity to share a bit of the message I share here on my blog and in my podcasts on a daily basis. Even the camera guys were so impressed by what I was sharing that one of them was writing notes on his hand while I was being interviewed–I gave him a copy of my book to continue to learn even more. Who knows? This could be the beginning of something spectacular coming for the healthy low-carb lifestyle. Crossing my fingers for how this all plays out.
Here are a few more fun photos from our magical week in Virginia Beach:
As soon as I hear when Lorie’s story on me will air, I’ll update this post. And the video is supposed to be posted online the day after it airs on “The 700 Club,” so we’ll post that here as well.
