180-Pound Atkins Weight Loss Success Story Releases Book
Highly-Anticipated New Low-Carb Success Book Is First Of Its Kind

SPARTANBURG, SC -- The much-awaited debut book release from Jimmy Moore about his incredible 180-pound weight loss on the Atkins diet in 2004 releases today.

"Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" (ISBN# 1591138043) has been more than seven months in the making, but it has arrived ready to help those who feel like there is no hope for their weight problem. People who are overweight, obese, or have a friend or loved one who can't seem to do anything about their health and weight will find hope and encouragement in the story Jimmy Moore tells.

"This isn't your typical weight loss diet book because I'm not telling people how they need to lose weight," Moore said about his book. "I am simply sharing my story about how the low-carb lifestyle has helped me so that it can possibly help others in their own weight loss journey."

Moore said this is likely the very first Atkins weight loss success book to feature someone who has lost as much weight as he has.

"When I was researching similar low-carb weight loss success story books on the market today, I noticed something very peculiar. There wasn't any!" Moore exclaimed. "That's why I felt my story needed to be told so that others could know the truth that there are real people who are losing a whole bunch of weight on this wonderfully healthy way of eating."

The book is currently available online for individuals to order at and is also available for bookstores to order wholesale to provide it to their customers during the upcoming Christmas and New Year's resolution season.

"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. While others quit after only a few days or weeks, Jimmy pressed on until the next New Year's Day when he had shed 180 pounds from his 6'3" frame.

This book is not just another diet book trying to tell you the "hidden secrets to weight loss success" nor is it the latest media-hyped fad diet that will do nothing to help you lose weight if you are overweight or obese.

Instead, it is 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.

"Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" literally helped Moore overcome a lifetime of weight problems to become a physically fit and athletic person because of the healthy benefits he has enjoyed on the low-carb lifestyle.

"In fact, I had my body fat percentage checked in early October 2005 and the doctor was simply dumbfounded," Moore explains. "When I asked what the readout showed, the doctor remarked that my body fat stood at 11%! Before I started livin' la vida low-carb, my body fat was closer to 50%!"

These are the kind of changes Moore discusses in his new book. It contains the 10 life-changing characteristics that he implemented to transform his body from a 410-pound man into the healthy and vibrant individual he is today.

Each chapter pinpoints a specific aspect of "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" that kept Moore losing fat even as others were quitting on their "diet." Topics include water, exercise, sugar, carbohydrates, vitamins, motivation, perseverance, support, and commitment.

Written in a no-nonsense, conversational style, "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" tells the truth about low-carb, offers advice about countering the constant negativity that this way of eating has received, provides instructional moments about how low-carb can work for you using examples from Moore's experience, challenges people to educate themselves more about low-carb living, and even throws in a few favorite low-carb recipes.

Jimmy Moore has been radically changed for the better all because of the low-carb lifestyle. Let his personal testimony, in his own words, motivate and encourage you in your own weight loss journey.

"Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" also includes a foreword by Ralph Bristol, a radio talk show host in the Greenville/Spartanburg, SC market who conducted a weight loss contest that Moore won, as well as quotes from Jonny Bowden, author of "Living the Low-Carb Life" and Jacqueline A. Eberstein, R.N., co-author of "Atkins Diabetes Revolution."

Moore is available for interviews about his weight loss and new book immediately. Please contact him at and provide your telephone number for him to reach you.

For more information on Moore, including daily writings on the subject of low-carb, please visit He has already been featured on, Newsradio 1330/950AM WORD, The Spartanburg Herald-Journal, and HJ Weekly and will be the subject of an upcoming Fox Carolina segment about his weight loss and book.
