Deon van der Merwe: The Jimmy Moore Of South Africa

Filed under: Health — @ May 29, 2009

PODCAST CHANGES UPDATE: As you know, we are working to move all the old archived podcast episodes over to our brand new web site and the process is going to take a few weeks to complete. In the meantime, the new episodes will likely not show up in iTunes for a while so be sure to visit the newly-updated podcast site on Mondays and Thursdays to access the latest interviews. THANKS again for your patience as we go through this frustrating process.

Deon van der Merwe went through an amazing low-carb transformation

There sure are a bunch of losers in this world–low-carb losers that is! Livin’ la vida low-carb is a global phenomenon and there are quite literally tens of millions of people who are implementing carbohydrate-restriction into their life. Bucking the trend of traditional medical wisdom, people are finally taking back control of their own weight and health by educating themselves and doing it for themselves–support or no support from their doctor or dietitian. One great example of this is a man from the country of South Africa who accomplished triple-digit weight loss on a low-carb lifestyle.

In Episode 257 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from Deon van der Merwe who was able to shed 170 pounds in a period of seven months following a strict low-carb eating plan last year. Today he is motivated to help other South Africans improve their weight and health with an exciting support group called Low-Carb Diet Club as well as a Low-Carb Challenge and his unique Diet-In-A-Box concept. Hear Deon share his incredible low-carb weight loss success story, what his keys to success were, how Gary Taubes was such an instrumental part of his low-carb lifestyle change, and what life is like for him today weighing 170 pounds lighter thanks to livin’ la vida low-carb. Be encouraged and inspired in your own low-carb journey by listening to Deon speak so passionately about his low-carb way of life.
