CNN Overlooked Importance Of Low-Carb To Phill Novak’s 192-Pound Weight Loss

Filed under: In The News — @ February 11, 2008

Phill Novak lost 192 pounds, but it was MORE than just exercise

Did you happen to catch this CNN story on the weight loss success of a man named Phill Novak earlier this month? Their headline boldly stated “Weighing nearly 400 pounds, man walks off half his weight,” but that wasn’t the whole story. Buried right smack dab in the middle of that write-up about Phill’s weight loss that was also featured in a two-minute segment on CNN was the fact that Phill did it following a low-carb diet. Yep, he’s livin’ la vida low-carb and lovin’ it, too!

That’s why I’m pleased to share with you an interview with Phill Novak in Episode 111 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore” to let him tell you about his homemade low-carb plan that led to his remarkable weight loss achievement. As you will hear during my interview with Phill, he was a little miffed they focused almost entirely on his exercise regimen while virtually ignoring how low-carb helped get him to where he is today–nearly 200 pounds lighter! Hear the rest of the story for yourself in today’s podcast.

It’s always exciting to talk to people who have traveled down this pathway to better health like I did because you KNOW what they’ve been through to get to this point in their life. For Phill, he was pushing 40 years old at the time and knew that it was do or die for him if this obesity monster he had allowed to grow and grow was gonna get under control. And to his credit, the weight came off and he feels better than he ever has in his entire life. You can’t help but love this guy because he exudes the confidence and enthusiasm of someone who will never be the same again.
