YMCA’s ‘Shrinkdown’ Leads To Triple-Digit Low-Carb Weight Loss

Jimmy Dorsett lost 128 pounds watching his calories and carbs

One year ago, I blogged about an exciting weight loss initative taking place in South Carolina called Shrinkdown. Thousands of overweight and obese people stopped by their local YMCAs all across the Palmetto state to say enough is enough with their weight and health problems.

One man that did that from my hometown of Spartanburg, SC was 41-year old Jimmy Dorsett.

One year later, he has now lost an incredible 128 pounds and dropped 14 total pants sizes by eating more fruits and vegetables, walking on the treadmill and paying close attention not just to his calories, but also his carbohydrates. In other words, he’s on the low-carb lifestyle–and he’s committed to doing it for a lifetime!

“I learned this wasn’t a diet,” Dorsett said. “It was a life change.”
