In Episode 700 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we look back on some of our favorite moments and most memorable (and infamous!) guests over the past 700 episodes. When you’ve been podcasting about healthy living for as long as I have at “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show,” it’s truly amazing how quickly the episodes start to pile up. But since October 2006, I’ve worked hard to bring you the best possible content from a wide variety of guests with points of view on a whole myriad of nutrition, fitness and health perspectives. Today we look back on our first 700 episodes and bring you some of the most memorable moments and guests who have graced us with their presence over the past seven years.

It would have been very easy to pick the BIG NAMES–Taubes, Eades, Bowden, Sisson, Wolf and others–to share excerpts from for today’s historic episode. But I decided to find some podcast guests and interviews that you may not have heard before or it’s been a long time. If you are a fan of this podcast, then today will be a very special day as we share bits and pieces from guests we have had over the years to give you a taste of the magic that has made this show the most successful low-carb health podcast of all-time!
