About Jimmy Moore
Jimmy Moore came onto the health scene in 2004 after he famously dropped a phenomenal 180-pounds. He came off of prescription drugs for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and respiratory problems. In 2006, he began his top-ranked podcast The Livin’ La Vida Low- Carb Show where he has interviewed well over 700 of the world’s top health experts. Wow!
Are you confused by what your cholesterol levels really say about your health? Don’t you wish someone could just spell it out in simple English and tell you what, if anything, you need to do to improve your heart and overall health? That’s precisely what Cholesterol Clarity is designed to do. Jimmy Moore, a prolific and highly respected health blogger and podcaster, interviewed 28 of the world’s top health experts from various fields to give you the complete lowdown on cholesterol. He and his co-author, family practitioner and researcher Dr. Eric Westman, have broken down this critical information for you to know what is most important and what is not.
Within the pages of this book you’ll learn invaluable lessons, including:
- Why your LDL-C and total cholesterol numbers may not be as important in determining your health as your doctor may think
- The undeniable negative role chronic inflammation plays in your health
- Why cholesterol-lowering statin drugs don’t necessarily solve your heart health concerns
- Why your doctor should be testing for LDL particles and particle size
- Why HDL and triglycerides are far more predictive of health concerns than LDL-C and total cholesterol
- Why consuming saturated fat is good and why carbohydrates are detrimental to attaining the best cholesterol numbers
- Why there is a growing number of physicians, researchers and nutritionists who believe treating cholesterol numbers is virtually irrelevant
You won’t find this kind of comprehensive, cutting-edge, expert-driven cholesterol information all in one place anywhere else. Did you know, for instance, that you don’t have to eat a low-fat diet, take a statin drug, or eat more of the so-called “healthy” whole grains to get your cholesterol levels where they need to be? Learn what really works from the best experts on the subject. Cholesterol Clarity will not only tell you what your LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and other key cholesterol markers really mean, but it will arm you with what you can do nutritionally to become as optimally healthy as you can possibly be!
Featured Experts: Dr. William Davis, Dr. Ronald Krauss, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Dr. Robert Lustig, Dr. Duane Graveline, Dr. Jonny Bowden, Dr. Chris Masterjohn, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Dr. John Briffa, Dr. Thomas Dayspring, Dr. Fred Pescatore, Gary Taubes and over a dozen more!
What if almost everything you’ve ever been told and thought you knew about diet and health was 100 percent dead wrong? “21 Life Lessons From Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” takes you through the daily education that has taken place in Jimmy’s life through his voracious researching, blogging, interviewing and being engaged in constantly learning more about the healthy benefits of an effective controlled-carbohydrate nutrition over the past few years.

Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb is the inspiring weight loss success story of Jimmy Moore who made it his New Year’s resolution on January 1, 2004 to lose weight once and for all. He pressed on until he had shed 180 pounds from his 6’3″ frame. This book chronicles the real-life success story of how one man who was morbidly obese and on the verge of declining health and quite possibly an early grave was able to pull himself up out of the inevitable consequences that come with extreme obesity.
