Jimmy Moore Talks Low-Carb Living With Veronica Atkins

Filed under: Atkins Diet — @ May 14, 2007

My favorite interview yet with the lovely and gracious Veronica Atkins

When I started blogging about the low-carb lifestyle two years ago, what I wanted more than anything else was to carry on the torch of advocacy for livin’ la vida low-carb that had been conspicuously absent since the untimely death of the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins. It was as if all the defenders of this way of eating fell off the face of the planet or decided to suddenly clam up. I for one felt that somebody needed to stand up on behalf of Dr. Atkins to defend his life’s work.

Dr. Atkins left behind an incredible legacy that will continue to postively impact the lives of millions of people around the world for decades and generations to come. My only regret is that I was never privileged enough to meet him and shake his hand for helping me lose over 180 pounds in 2004. I am a permanently changed man today because of the Atkins diet and nobody can ever take that away from me.

But although I can never have that fateful meeting with my nutritional hero, I got to experience the next best thing–an interview with none other than Mrs. Veronica Atkins. As the faithful wife and loving companion to Dr. Atkins through all the ups and downs of his unprecedented medical career, nobody knew the human being she affectionately referred to as “Bobby” better than Veronica.

I’ve been able to meet and interview a lot of interesting people at my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog over the past couple of years, but none more thrilling than this one with Mrs. Veronica Atkins. Eloquent, articulate, and ever-faithful to the mission of her late husband, you will be encouraged anew to start livin’ la vida low-carb after hearing from this engaging and elegant woman.
