Likness: 'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb' Is An 'Asset To Your Weight Loss Success Library'

A special thanks to weight loss success story, certified fitness trainer, and blogging buddy Jeremy Likness who so selflessly agreed to write a review of my book "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" for me today that I would like to share with you.

Jeremy wrote:

"Even if you are not a fan of low-carb diets, get this book! It will inspire and transform the way you think about fitness and living healthy.

I must admit that I have a built-in bias to Jimmy's story because it is similar to my own. We both were overweight and spent a lot of time trying to discover the right connection to lose fat ... and more importantly, to keep it off. Jimmy's book captures the essence of this journey and will connect with many of you who are looking for that powerful reason not to give up hope.

While I have had success with many clients using a variety of approaches, some people seem to connect well with the low-carb method.

Jimmy tackles the entire lifestyle — it's not just about your diet. He shares exercise, motivation, and more. While I don't agree that sugar is rat poison, as one of the chapters proclaims, I did connect with much of the how and why behind this amazing transformation.

The change is more than checking the carb count on the nutrition facts, and you'll discover not only what Jimmy did to transform his life, but it was like witnessing it through his wife's own words.

This book will be an asset to your weight loss success library."

WOW, thanks Jeremy! Jeremy's transformation story is not so bad either and you can read my review of his book here. It's called "Lose Fat, Not Faith" and is available from if you are interested in getting a copy.

What is amazing to me is the fact that although there may be areas of disagreement between those who subscribe to the low-carb lifestyle and those who do not, that doesn't mean we have to be disagreeable about it. I can appreciate somebody like Jeremy who is out there day in and day out seeing clients who need to change their life. He is in the midst of the proverbial fire and can feel the pain and agony that these people suffer with because he himself has also been there.

I am thankful to have a bond with people like Jeremy because weight loss is a very personal issue that must be dealt with by the individual. The incredible changes that have happened in Jeremy's life and mine could not have happened had we not set forth a plan for tackling our weight problems head-on. Refusing to back down from the challenge is step number one.

Are you ready to take that step? If so, then you might be interested in Jeremy's 5-Disc audio program to get you started off on the right foot just in time for the new year. Make 2006 the year you FINALLY do something about your weight and your health!

You will NEVER regret it, I promise! THANKS again, Jeremy, for the review. You are an honorable man for doing so. :)
