The Presenters:

Jimmy Moore is the host of a hugely popular website based in the US livinlavidalowcarb.com . He was the first choice of the organising committee for anyone in the world to come to Australia to talk about low carb living. He has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, promoting a high-fat, moderate protein, low carb diet plan.

In January 2004, Jimmy Moore made a decision to get rid of the weight that was literally killing him. At 32 years of age and 410 pounds, the time had come for a radical change of lifestyle. A year later, he had shed 180 pounds, shrunk his waist by 20 inches, and dropped his shirt size from 5XL to XL. After his dramatic weight loss, Jimmy was inundated with requests from friends, neighbors and complete strangers seeking information and help.

In October 2005, Jimmy released his debut book entitled Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: My Journey From Flabby Fat To Sensationally Skinny In One Year. Then in November 2009, he released his second book related to low-carb living called 21 Life Lessons From Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: How The Healthy Low-Carb Lifestyle Changed Everything I Thought I Knew to continue educating, encouraging, and inspiring others who are overweight, obese, and unhealthy to make a change.

Moore also runs a popular, weekly podcast that has run over 500 episodes featuring interviews with experts in diet, health and fitness. Moore is regarded as a fan of low carbohydrate diets and eating plans and promotes them through his blog, books, YouTube videos and podcasts.

David Gillespie is the best selling author of “Sweet Poison” and “Big Fat Lies”. David is a recovering corporate lawyer, co-founder of a successful software company and consultant to the IT industry.

He is also the father of six young children (including one set of twins). With such a lot of extra time on his hands, and 40 extra kilos on his waistline, he set out to investigate why he, like so many in his generation, was fat.

He deciphered the latest medical findings on diet and weight gain and what he found was chilling. Being fat was the least of his problems. He needed to stop poisoning himself. You can also read more at http://www.howmuchsugar.com/

Dr Anastasia Boulais is a Paleo physician from Australia. She is the woman behind the incredible “primalmeded” blog that details her own unique perspective on nutrition and health as someone who overcame some chronic illnesses with Paleo even as she pursued becoming a medical doctor.

Fresh out of medical school, Dr. Boulais has become a full-fledged nutritional health and fitness fan implementing the Paleo/primal/low-carb principles of our evolutionary ancestors.

She comes at things from a rather different perspective with her love for this way of eating and the traditional medical education she has been entrusted with using to help her patients.

Anastasia shares just a small glimpse of what’s going on up in that head of hers regularly for us on her blog–and it’s a lot of good stuff that will be helping people who are sick in Australia and around the world for a very long time.
