‘Inspired And Encouraged’ By Uplifting Low-Carb Blog

Filed under: Health — @ June 29, 2007

During my radio interview Thursday morning on WBTC-AM’s Dial & Speak program with host Andrea Fanti in Ohio, we discussed the positive impact my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog is having on the thousands of readers who visit each day.

A prime example of that came in an e-mail from a Louisiana reader who expressed to me what my writings have meant to him.

Here’s are some excerpts of what he wrote:

Hi Jimmy,

I have been big all my life and have ballooned up to 319 at my largest. Recently I’d been hovering around 305-310, not knowing what to do. I needed inspiration.
Oddly enough I got inspiration from the strangest of places. I was watching the Republican candidate debate on the Fox News channel and was impressed with Mike Huckabee from Arkansas. I decided to do a little research on him and found that he had lost over 100 pounds in less than a year on Atkins.

In studying further about how he did it I discovered your web site, bookmarked it, and subsequently subscribed to the RSS feed to read it every day.
So far I’ve lost 23 pounds in a month and it’s still coming off! My family is getting inspired and my wife and daughters are joining me. We’re having fun experimenting with recipes, looking up fun foods to eat and encouraging each other.
I just wanted to say “thank you” for your writing. I’ve been inspired and encouraged by your writings. Thanks!
