Janie and Jimmy of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show

I had a fun interview by the vivacious and interesting Jimmy Moore of the Livin’ La Vida Low Carb Show. If you haven’t yet heard it, you can listen to Jimmy and I by clicking right here.

Jimmy Moore is a living success story about the benefits of a low carb diet–losing 180+ pounds in 2004 and regaining his health and vitality.  As I do about far better thyroid treatment,  Jimmy has been on a one-man mission to tell the whole world what livin’ la vida low-carb can do for them.

Eating low carb can be a very important strategy for those with hypothyroidism, especially while on desiccated thyroid and seeking to reverse the damage of being on T4 meds like Synthroid, et al.

And for those of you with adrenal fatigue, following Jimmy’s low carb life style can be very beneficial when you need to be on cortisol, which can cause weight gain for some, but is an important treatment for your low cortisol situation.

Have a great day!

    Look forward to listening to this interview!

    But I gotta question the notion that low carb dieting is an awesome idea for those of us with low body temperature and hypothyroidism. Nutrition Researcher Matt Stone has an excellent blog post on this topic:

    It contains a quote from Dr. Atkins, which states that dieting of all sorts, even low-carb, “tends to shut down thyroid function.” Pretty important.

    Low carb not healthy. Stick to Dr. Sears’ Zone.

    Low carb is fantastic. However I have become worried that a lower serum level of glucose might excessively trigger the adrenals to produce more cortisone and as such deplete the adrenals ability to produce cortisone and as a result develop adrenal fatigue. Personally I developed adrenal fatigue after a few years on low carb and a lack of sleep. Could a low carb lifestyle cause adrenal fatigue or ar both unrelated?
