My name is Jimmy Moore and I am the creator of a series of popular low-carb blogs, podcasts, YouTube videos, books and more called “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb.” In 2004, I lost 180 pounds mostly by eating a high-fat, moderate protein, low-carb nutritional approach and as a result was able to come off of three prescription medications for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and breathing problems and change my life radically for the better. While my initial motivation for eating this way was for weight loss as a former 410-pound man, the real benefit this amazingly healthy lifestyle change gave me was a renewed hope for a long and happy life. I’ve been working vigorously since 2005 to spread the message of hope and inspiration to everyone who will listen that low-carb living can and will change your life.
I’ve been privileged to meet some truly amazing people through my online ventures centering around the subject of health over the years. But there’s one group of people who I have become especially fond of for their courage and tenacity in the face of opposition and adversity. I’m referring to a group of people from the nation of Sweden who refer to themselves as followers of LCHF (Low-Carb, High-Fat). In the United States where I live, a lot of people may identify themselves as “low-carb.” Unfortunately, if you ask them if they eat “high-fat” as well you’ll usually be given some dirty looks or severely chastised for promoting a diet that will clog your arteries, give you a heart attack and kill you. The fat-phobia that exists in America is probably the biggest hurdle to a full-fledged LCHF movement taking place here. But in Sweden, things are changing at a rapid pace.
The “Eat Like A Swede” blog is dedicated to promoting the key players in the LCHF movement in Sweden, providing some of the history of how this all began, sharing personal perspectives of the changes that have taken place in the lives of real people who have committed themselves to LCHF wholeheartedly, and bringing it all to an English-speaking audience in the United States, Canada, the UK and anywhere else there are people who need to be exposed to the amazing story unfolding right before our eyes in Sweden. If I can work out the details, my plan is to visit Sweden sometime in 2011 or 2012 to shoot a documentary about the LCHF movement by interviewing people like Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, Dr. Annika Dahlqvist, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Jonas Colting and many others. Get ready to be inspired to “Eat Like A Swede” and watching your health improve in ways you never thought possible!
