The LLVLC Show (Episode 629): Dr. Avery Carpenter Identifies How To Overcome Low-Carb Diet Difficulties


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

In Episode 629 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are pleased to bring to you a chiropractor and applied kinesiologist named Dr. Avery Carpenter. She is from the Dallas, TX-based New Leaf Health & Wellness clinic and is a big believer in healthy low-carb living. But it wasn’t always that way. While dealing with a personal health problem, she realized the limitations of conventional medicine and began to seek out other forms of healthcare.

That’s when she saw dramatic and positive changes under the care of a knowledgeable chiropractor and applied kinesiologist who helped her begin to experience the best health she’d ever experience in her entire life. Along the way Dr. Carpenter realized that her true calling in life was to share with others who are in the same situation that she was in desperately looking for the answers to attaining optimal health. That’s why she pursued education and training in the methods that changed her life forever.

These days Dr. Carpenter is busy helping her patients and passing along some excellent information to the general public through her free webinar called the “4 Keys To Healthy Eating” as well as an amazing resource entitled “Foods That Kill, Foods That Heal.” Listen in as Dr. Carpenter and I talk about why she believes low-carb nutrition is appropriate for everyone, some of the major issues that people tend to have with low-carb, and what they can do to overcome those obstacles to experience the incredible benefits that come from low-carb living. ENJOY!
