From Anorexia To Binge Eating To Healthy Low-Carb Living

J.P. Fanton comes out from behind the “Harry Hirsute” moniker today

One of the greatest aspects of blogging and podcasting is the ability to meet such a wide range of people who make up a part of this low-carb and health community. From the most famous authors to researchers to people who have lost a lot of weight, I’ve had the privilege of coming into contact with a lot of people. But sometimes there’s somebody like you and me who has a special story to tell and I’m pleased to be able to bring you one of those today.

In Episode 242 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from a man named J.P. Fanton who has gone by the name “Harry Hirsute” in his comments at my menus blog and forum. Little did I know that J.P.’s journey to low-carb was probably a lot more challenging than most of us experience. He suffered through a health-destroying eating disorder, embraced the Ornish-styled low-fat dogma, went on eating binges, and eventually obesity. Working through these excruciatingly painful issue, J.P. overcame them and fully embraced healthy low-carb living.

Several months ago he took me up on my challenge to the people who read my menus blog to start his own low-carb menu blog. What was borne out of that was a one-of-a-kind web site called “The Wowee Zowee Menu Blog.” Seriously, that’s his blog and it’s full of some hardcore, revved up, daily low-carb menus. J.P.’s unique sense of humor and kindness shines through in everything he touches, including his new health web site called “Healthy Fellow.” This was a memorable one-on-one interview with one of the real good guys in the low-carb community. ENJOY!
