Steve Yu wants to inspire people to achieve anything they want

There are lots of “buzz” words in the weight loss and fitness world that are thrown out there for people to use when describing this journey. Things like “motivation,” “lifestyle change,” and “willpower” are the norm in the common vernacular of people going on a diet. But one word sticks out above all the rest when you talk about the process of shedding pounds and getting healthy: INSPIRED! Some people think if they could only get some inspiration from others who have accomplished what they want to do, then it will give them the impetus to succeed too. That’s the premise of a new documentary film coming in 2009 called INSPIRED: The Movie.

In Episode 197 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Steve Yu, the man behind INSPIRED: The Movie, whose life was radically changed when he and his wife Mariah decided to get themselves into shape for their marriage by entering a national fitness competition. When Mariah won the $100,000 grand prize in the contest and people started asking what she and Steve did to change their appearance, that’s when Steve realized there was great potential for a documentary film that would empower others to change their lives, too. He talks about the entire process of making this movie over the past three years and how excited he is to hopefully present the film at all the major festivals next year, including the most prominent one in the world–Sundance. Listen in to hear Steve Yu share about his incredibly ambitious project INSPIRED: The Movie.

Coming up next week, we have two very…uhhh…let’s just say “interesting” podcast interviews to share with you. Most of my interviews feature authors and experts who articulate their point of view and stay pretty much on their talking points. However, as you see in these interviews next week, some guests can’t help themselves and get all “wacky” on me. That’s why I’m dubbing this my “Wacky Week” to let you hear how strange some of my interviews have been. Coming on Monday, we’ll hear from Betty Martini, a community activist against artificial sweeteners who takes her opposition to substances like aspartame to the extreme as you will hear in my interview with her. Then on Thursday, we are graced with the presence of Konstantin Monastyrsky, the author of a groundbreaking book entitled Fiber Menace, whose phenomenal book about the dangers of consuming fiber was overshadowed by the author’s overzealous disgust and disdain for the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins. It was a disappointing interview that showed such promise to be great…but maybe you’ll get something positive out of the wackiness of next week’s guests. Stay tuned!
