'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show' Episode 148: Week Of Weight Loss Wisdom--Micah McCain

Micah McCain shedding the pounds on BRAVO-TV's "Workout"

During this special "Week Of Weight Loss Wisdom" on my podcast "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore," we're hearing some truly remarkable low-carb weight loss turnarounds from people just like you and me. On Monday, Sue Knorr told us all how The Zone Diet has been making a positive difference in her life for the past 12 years and counting. Today we have another guest who only recently learned about the power of the healthy low-carb lifestyle.

In Episode 148 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore," we hear from Micah McCain who is currently a contestant on Season 3 of the hit BRAVO television weight loss reality series called Workout. When this show first came out in 2006, I blogged about it as yet another program on national television to inspire others in their own weight loss efforts and it has flourished ever since! Micah is one of the people who has experienced a tremendous turnaround and I'm pleased to share my interview with him today as part of this "Week Of Weight Loss Wisdom."

Micah McCain discusses how his weight shocked him out of nowhere when he saw some video footage of himself. This is a subject I've blogged about before and it's true--if you wanna see what others see when they look at you, then have someone take a video or photograph of you and there it will be. It's a stark reality that hit Micah right between the eyeballs and made him want to do what he had to do to get that weight off.

Dealing with obesity his entire life, Micah needed an incremental approach to shedding the pounds. His trainer and nutrition adviser started him out eating more vegetables and fruit and then began substituting some healthy options in place of some of the junk food he was eating. The slow change in Micah's diet then took a low-carb turn when the sugar was removed first followed by flour, dairy, starchy veggies and even some fruits (because they're too high in sugar!). WOW! Pretty soon, Micah was full-fledged livin' la vida low-carb and he hasn't looked back since!

In this second interview in the "Week Of Weight Loss Wisdom", Micah McCain was quite open and honest about how he struggled with his weight for most of his life until he became educated about what healthy living is. What do you think about his trainer's incremental approach to change? Is it better to go slow and ease somebody into the low-carb lifestyle or to switch them cold turkey to low-carb immediately? This oughta be an interesting discussion, so feel free to express yourself in the show notes section of Episode 148.

WEDNESDAY--Kent Altena (Bowulf) who lost over 200 pounds on Atkins
THURSDAY--Rebecca Wilhoit on The Perfect Body Diet
