In Episode 639 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’re pleased to welcome back a British physician and low-carb health advocate named Dr. John Briffa who is the final returning interview guest as one of the best of the best of 2012 for “Encore Week” 2013. We have kicked off the new year with a bang presenting these special interviews with your favorite podcast guests from last year, including a compelling conversation about lipid health with Dr. Thomas Dayspring on Monday, a philosophical debate about the importance of calories for weight loss with Jonathan Bailor on Tuesday, a physician and nutritional advocate for beating multiple sclerosis named Dr. Terry Wahls who is using a low-carb Paleo diet to help MS patients on Wednesday and sports science researcher Professor Timothy Noakes making waves on behalf of low-carb, high-fat diets in his homeland of South Africa. We hope you’ve enjoyed all of these BRAND NEW EPISODES this week and we look forward bringing you even more outstanding podcast interviews in 2013!
Today we saved one of the best interview guests from 2012 for last as we welcome a very pragmatic medical doctor from the UK named Dr. John Briffa. He released a fabulous book last year outlining this philosophy entitled Escape The Diet Trap (coming to Kindle and other e-book readers for American consumers in late January 2013) that encourages people to stop dieting and to start using a healthy dose of common sense when it comes to choices in their lifestyle that will have a profound impact on weight and health. It’s something we heard on full display when he was our guest in Episode 541 back in February 2012 and in his Low-Carb Cruise lecture in May 2012.
Listen in as “John” (what he likes to be called) and I discuss the new projects he is working on for 2013, his recent blog post about the diabetic patient who was told by his doctor to stop doing the low-carb diet that had improved his health, a trip down memory lane of the health journey he has been on encapsulated in his 1000th post and a whole lot more in this one-hour conversation. And be sure to check out any of the amazing “Encore Week” 2013 interviews you might have missed this week. ENJOY!

Coming up next week, we’ll be back on our regular schedule again with three BIG new interviews to share with you. On Monday, we’ll welcome back an anti-sugar activist named Dr. Robert Lustig who became an online superstar when his 90-minute “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” video lecture went viral now garnering in excess of 3 million views on YouTube. This captured the attention of a book publisher who was interested in having Dr. Lustig write a book about his thoughts on obesity and disease and now it’s available to the public. It’s called Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease and will be one of the most talked-about health books of 2013. We are honored to have him back again for this exclusive podcast interview. Listen to my previous conversations with Dr. Lustig in Episode 378 and Episode 429. Then on Tuesday I’m delighted to share the work of my fellow health podcasters Terry and Suz McDonald from “Your Life: An Owner’s Manual” who are seeking to pass along the many years of experience and knowledge to their listeners. And then on Wednesday, I’m delighted to share about the accomplishments of a ketogenic ultra-marathon runner named Tim Olson who shocked the running world when he won the Western States 100 race fueled by his high-fat, low-carb diet. Some say it’s impossible to be fueled by anything other than carbohydrates–let’s see what Tim has to say about that!
