'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show' Episode 154: Cassandra Forsythe Talks About Her 'Perfect Body Diet' Book

Low-carb researcher Cassandra Forsythe talks about her new book

I have great hope for the future of livin' la vida low-carb because there is a whole generation of young people who are championing this cause right now and will be for at least the next half century! That should get you very excited if you believe in the solid scientific foundation of the healthy low-carb lifestyle and I am privileged to be a part of something like this that is making such a positive difference in the lives of this generation and quite possibly many generations to come. My guest today on my podcast show is another one of these young people who is making waves for low-carb.

In Episode 154 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore," we get to hear from the enthusiastic and lovely Cassandra Forsythe, a research assistant to world-renowned low-carb researcher Dr. Jeff Volek at the University of Connecticut and the author of two books of her own--The New Rules Of Lifting For Women and her latest Women's Health Perfect Body Diet. Some have read Cassandra's new book and shared with me their concerns about how it promotes the use of low-fat products and a fiber-based substance called glucomannon for weight loss. So I wanted Cassandra to come on the show today to respond to these criticisms directly.

Cassandra gets into a lot of subjects during this half-hour interview, including what it's like to try to appease a book publisher who thinks "low-carb is dead," who needs to be following a low-carb diet more than anyone else, what it's like working with Dr. Volek, her discovery of glucomannon fiber to help you feel fuller after eating, how your body fuels your workouts in the absence of carbohydrate, and an in-depth discussion about her Perfect Diet book. With all that's happening in her life right now with an impending wedding and finishing up her doctorate degree, I was appreciative of Cassandra's generosity of time to do this interview.

Very nice podcast.

Cassandra you rock and I am so glad you are doing this despite all the pressure from the publishers to stay 'Low-Fat'. I am getting this book for my sister and mother.

Forget about praying for peace.. PRAY FOR MORE LOW-CARB PUBLISHERS!!!

Low carb is SO alive !
