All I can say is:  Wow!

Yesterday my man Jimmy Moore posted his 500th podcast episode.  That would be an accomplishment even if all he did was produce podcasts.  But of course Jimmy also maintains a daily blog, appears regularly on local media reports about nutrition and health, produces a series of YouTube videos, attends seminars all over the country,  produces a second podcast show featuring roundtable discussions with friends,  and arranges the lineup of speakers for each year’s low-carb cruise and then emcees the cruise activities.

Oh, I almost forgot … he also managed to find time to write two books.

I have a theory that in the course of his research, Jimmy came across the key to cloning humans and now there are actually three “Jimmy Moores” getting all this work accomplished.  I hope to someday snap a picture of all three of them in the same room.

Congratulations, Jimmy (or Jimmys).  I believe your Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show has done more to educate the lay public about diet and health than even you can imagine.

I’m heading off to work now … and yes, I’ll be listening to one of your podcasts in my car.

    Congratulations to Jimmy, still trying to listen to as many of the podcasts as I can.

    Tom, maybe this is news to you, check this out:

    Robb Wolf and Morgan Spurlock in the same TV show… that could be very interesting.

    Interesting. I wonder if Morgan went off the vegan diet while living in the wild.

    I listened to the podcast this morning, Tom, and it was fabulous. I loved that he put you on last…it was the perfect ending and had me laughing.

    I figured it’s what Jimmy would expect from me.

  4. Prue says:

    Congrats Jimmy!
    Tom – your comments at the end of that 500th podcast were hilarious and had me laughing out loud. Thanks for that.

    My pleasure.

    Hurrah! :D (And I’ll have the secret to cloning (without data loss), thanks)

    He’s the man (or men)! Even though I’ve never met him, I’ve listened to him so often, I think of him as a friend. I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all the help his blog and podcast gave given me on my journey to health. Congrats, Jimmy!

    The first time I met him in person, it felt like getting together with an old friend for the same reason.

  7. Ailu says:

    Congrats, Jimmy. I think it’s awesome that you and Tom are such good friends. Your Podcasts are great, and your wife is a sweetie. Life can sure throw it’s curve balls, but with friends and family at your side, one can see good for all their hard work. You’ve certainly done that. :-)

  8. Nick says:

    Wow…what an AWESOME accomplishment! Where does he get all of his energy…..probably not from the Carbs!!!

    THANKS TO JIMMY for all the hard work and dedication….and of course, thanks Tom for taking time to recognize a great individual!

    Jimmy is a machine.

  9. Virginia says:

    Congratulations Jimmy. Tom Naughton’s comments are great and a wonderful finale to the 500th episode.

    Well, he did lose about half his weight. Hmmmm….

    Watch out, according to a liberal judge in WI:

    “no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;”

    “no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”

    “no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”

    Unbelievable.

    Tom – I don’t know how else to reach you to ask this, but please tell me if you ever plan on writing on your other blog again. So many interesting and note-worthy events have occured in the realm of politics and economics that you haven’t written about. You haven’t written a thing since early July! I just dont want to visit your other blog with the tantalizing prospect of a juicy and humorous libertarian post, only to be dissappointed. I know you recently mentioned your brother’s blog, but he also hasn’t written anything in a while. Have you lost all interest in politics and economics and libertarianism?

    I plan to get back to it eventually. Now that I’m working a 40-hour week, it’s tough to keep up on all my previous activities.

    Listened to Jimmy’s 500th podcast and refrained from skipping ahead to your segment. It was great to get little snippets of all these great people and their websites and now there are so many podcasts I want to catch up on.

    I loved your segment! Refreshingly unexpected. Jimmy really does need to make “I Feel Good” his theme song. Only someone who’s immersed in the LCHF way of life truly understands what that song means, don’tcha think?

    I hope Jimmy can crank out 500 more. GO JIMMIE!!

    I think you can count on Jimmy recording his 1,000th podcast someday.

    Congratulations Jimmy Moore! He also answers each and every email sent his way on top of ALL the other stuff. I found ‘Fat Head’ through Jimmy’s site. I love how he says his blogging and musings are ‘Less of Moore, More or Less.’ He indeed is indefatigueable, but I’m willing to speculate that I don’t think he had as much energy before going low-carb. I experienced a noticable jump in my energy after giving up low-calorie, low-fat, semi-vegetarian, low-salt, high-carb, wheat anything- 3 years ago.
    Jimmy also seems the most honest, genuine, optimistic positive person. You just can’t fake that and you couldn’t make him up.

    I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him several times in person, including a weekend when he and Christine stayed at our house, and he’s everything you just described.

    What do you think about this ‘physiological insulin resistance’ and 150g rule for better weight loss?

    I just remember seeing this once 2 yrs ago
    http://livinlavidalocarb.blogspot.com/2008/04/three-months-of-resistance-training.html (linked on http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/can-you-actually-get-fatter-on-a-low-carb-diet/2308)

    What has been your observation/experience post-fathead eating for ~3 yrs?

    I haven’t had an oral glucose tolerance test, but yes, I’d probably fail. Since I eat very few carbs, I would expect my body to down-regulate my ability to process them. This doesn’t worry me any more than the fact that I lost my tolerance for a high intake of alcohol when I stopped drinking so much.

    My experience on a low-carb diet since making Fat Head has been quite positive. I’m leaner than I’ve been in many years, despite eating until I’m full and not counting calories.

    re: ‘I just remember seeing this once 2 yrs ago’

    Actually I can’t find the post with the pics that I saw. It involved him being disappointed with himself and making a new year’s resolution and posting a picture of him shirtless (I thought it was ~Dec 2009).

    I thought it was this http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/six-months-of-lifting-weights-and-im-finally-getting-the-hang-of-it/2424 ‘it’s still a mystery why I have been unable to take the weight off that has come on me. If we figure it out, then you’ll be the first to know about it.’

    But the post I’m talking about had nothing to do with exercise or weight-lifting.

  17. Lance Strish says:

    Still can’t find the post (I thought it was this one http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/post-weight-loss-loose-skin-hanging-around/1507 but it’s just talking about loose skin … even mentions ‘abdominoplasty’ consideration… but the picture looks familiar to the post I am trying to find except he is frowning in it. Interestingly, I found a link where Jimmy wanted to get down to 6% body fat[!] http://livinlavidalocarb.blogspot.com/2006/12/jimmy-moores-2007-new-years-resolutions.html)

    Anecdotally, I just want to say after eating a sweet potato w/ each meal (~3-4/day. Each have 30g starch and it has half the fructose of a banana and more fiber) I have noticed lower belly fat (there may be a gut flora short chain fatty acid component to this as well as Wholehealthsource and PerfectHealthDiet has written about). I was trying to raise carbohydrate to >150g using perfecthealthdiet.com’s Jaminet (http://www.thelivinlowcarbshow.com/shownotes/3813/paul-jaminet-offers-perfect-health-episode-453/ Jaminet has a very measured, professorial voice — it’s a good interview) recommendations and I wanted to avoid that ‘physiological insulin resistance.’

    I have to wonder if Jimmy will try something like this one day:
    http://twitter.com/#!/livinlowcarbman/status/119461501361856513 (I have also commented to Jimmy about it in that comment ‘physiological insulin resistance’ in the very first link above, since he was doing his ‘n=1′ experiments)
