‘Fiber Menace’ Author Unleashes Anger On Bernstein, Atkins, Eades And Even Me!

Filed under: Misc — @ November 21, 2008

Konstantin Monastyrsky goes absolutely ballistic about Dr. Atkins

You can always tell about a man’s true character when they are challenged on what they believe. After posting my recent book reviews on Amazon earlier this week, one of the authors did something rather surprising–he left a 1-star review of MY book Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: My Journey From Flabby Fat to Sensationally Skinny in One Year. HUH?! My rating of his book was a 3-star, but this obviously set him off and he retaliated against me and my book as a result. The author who did this is the subject of my second interview as part of this special “Wacky Week” of podcasts.

In Episode 199 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are graced with the presence of a Ukraine-born author named Konstantin Monastyrsky, author of a book several of my readers have told me about called Fiber Menace: The Truth About the Leading Role of Fiber in Diet Failure, Constipation, Hemorrhoids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, and Colon Cancer. As you listen to the interview today, it won’t take very long to learn why this guy’s just a few fries short of a Happy Meal–bashing the cream of the crop low-carb authors Dr. Richard Bernstein, the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins, Dr. Mike Eades, Dr. Arthur Agatston, and others. Although I attempted to steer the conversation to talk about his book, Konstantin wasn’t interested in discussing why fiber is a “menace” but instead showed why HE is the real menace. You just gotta hear it to believe it–YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH!

WHEW! With “Wacky Week” behind us, we’re looking forward to next week on Monday when we celebrate our monumental 200th Episode of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.” It’s hard to believe we have done 200 shows in the past two years, but it is a reality. I’ll be joined in the studio by my wonderful executive podcast producer Kevin Kennedy-Spaien as we reminisce on memories about the show since it began in October 2006. Then on Wednesday, before you eat up on that Thanksgiving turkey, we’ll have the great Dr. Barry Sears of Zone Diet fame talking about his brand new book entitled Toxic Fat.
