Let’s talk cholesterol! Jimmy Moore, author of Cholesterol Clarity, is our special guest today. Ever wonder what all those cholesterol numbers actually mean? We’ll talk with Jimmy Moore all about his thinking on cholesterol.
Jimmy Moore is best known for his “Livin’ LaVida Low-Carb” blog and podcast. In 2004, at 32 years of age and 410 pounds, Jimmy made the decision to take off the weight that was literally killing him. The time had come for a radical lifestyle change. A year later, he lost 180 pounds and shrunk his waistline by 20 inches. This phenomenal weight loss enabled him to come off prescription drugs for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and respiratory problems. His dramatic change sparked his dedication to helping others find the information they need to make the kind of lifestyle changes he has made.
Our bodies make cholesterol and it is an essential element in our body. How does our nutrition affect cholesterol? What do all of the numbers on the lipids panel mean for our health? Jimmy discusses the elements of the lipids panel test, inflammation, and other tests that should be discussed and explored with your physician.
Along with his blog and podcasts, Jimmy Moore is also the author of The Ketogenic Cookbook, Keto Clarity and Cholesterol Clarity. Learn more about Jimmy Moore and his work at www.livinlavidalowcarb.com.
