Bruce Frassinelli Proves It’s Never Too Late To Lose Weight On Low-Carb

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ February 16, 2009

Bruce Frassinelli lost 85 pounds on low-carb–and KEPT it off for 10 years!

One excuse I hear quite often from people who are considering the low-carb lifestyle is they think they’re too old to begin such a dramatic dietary change after years of living life as an overweight person. They say their metabolism has slowed down too much, they have to deal with more health issues, they claim they don’t have the ability to exercise like younger people do…so forth and so on. And while I’m not diminishing the validity of these, my podcast interview guest today bucks that trend losing 85 pounds and getting his health back at the age of 59–and he’s kept that weight off for a decade!

In Episode 228 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” you’ll hear the powerful low-carb testimony of a man named Bruce Frassinelli, a retired professor of journalism who at the age of 59 decided enough is enough. After an old colleague said to him, “My God, Bruce, you’ve gotten fat,” it became a “defining moment” in his life to do something about it. A friend introduced him to the Atkins diet and the rest is history. He lost that 85 pounds in just six months by following a low-carb dietary regimen along with a daily exercise routine that now has him walking nine miles a day. Regardless of your age, let Bruce’s story inspire you that it’s NEVER too late to do something about your weight and health.

Coming up on Thursday, you’re in for a real treat with low-carb neurosurgeon Dr. Larry McCleary, author of the quintessential low-carb brain health book entitled The Brain Trust Program. I’ve had the privilege of interviewing him at my blog in September 2007, this podcast interview includes lots of new research and information about the emerging and evolving epidemic of Type 3 diabetes of the brain and how low-carb nutrition applies so perfectly. He extols the virtues of why ketone bodies are the preferred fuel source for the brain. This could very well become one of the most listened-to podcast I conduct in 2009, so YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT!
