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.

Crystal Fieldhouse – Crystal’s main interest is in improving health and longevity through quality nutrition and believes that a big focus on functional strength and mobility will serve any person well – young or old.

Crystal and her husband aim to eat quality, nutrient dense food (fruit and veggies that are seasonal and locally sourced or home-grown in addition to meat or fish that is grass-fed or wild-caught), get lots of quality sleep in a pitch black room, and train for functional strength and mobility.

Crystal runs a blog that is a reflection of her learnings and experiences with eating to a Paleolithic template, improving sleeping habits, training in a Crossfit box, learning to cook and growing her own heirloom veggies.

Crystal was exposed to this lifestyle from and early age, growing up on the South Island of NZ where life is simpler and people are often more connected to where their food comes from. After studying health science at Otago University, Crystal and her husband started the blog to share their experiences with anyone who might be interested in the Paleo Diet, weight-loss, health and longevity, eating to support a Crossfit habit and learning to cook and be more self-sufficient in the garden.

She is keen to share stories, opinions, learnings, recipes and tips on how to incorporate Paleo into your lifestyle, growing veggies at home in the backyard and training in a Crossfit box.

She hopes to give you the inspiration to take responsibility for your own health and well-being and also to put some tools in the tool-box to effect change.

Dr. Tayler was one of the 250+ enthusiastic people who participated in the recent May 2012 Low-Carb Cruise to be amongst like-minded people from around the world who are becoming more and more aware of the problems associated with not just with sugar but literally all refined and starchy carbohydrates.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, he is doing his part to spread the word about healthy low-carb living as the principal investigator of The SWEET (Sugar and Weight Effect at Epworth Study). Dr. Tayler has made headlines in Australia for suggesting that fruit not fat may in fact be part of the reason why we have an obesity epidemic.

Dr Tayler has been running a website for about 3 years called giveupsugar.com and has been doing a research project at a large Melbourne hospital (Epworth) and investigating the effect of sugar reduction on the weights of 158 staff members. Dr Tayler has given many presentations to groups of doctors and allied health professionals on reducing sugar and refined carbohydrates.

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://howmuchsugar.com/

Crystal Fieldhouse – Crystal’s main interest is in improving health and longevity through quality nutrition and believes that a big focus on functional strength and mobility will serve any person well – young or old.

Crystal and her husband aim to eat quality, nutrient dense food (fruit and veggies that are seasonal and locally sourced or home-grown in addition to meat or fish that is grass-fed or wild-caught), get lots of quality sleep in a pitch black room, and train for functional strength and mobility.

Crystal runs a blog that is a reflection of her learnings and experiences with eating to a Paleolithic template, improving sleeping habits, training in a Crossfit box, learning to cook and growing her own heirloom veggies.

Crystal was exposed to this lifestyle from and early age, growing up on the South Island of NZ where life is simpler and people are often more connected to where their food comes from. After studying health science at Otago University, Crystal and her husband started the blog to share their experiences with anyone who might be interested in the Paleo Diet, weight-loss, health and longevity, eating to support a Crossfit habit and learning to cook and be more self-sufficient in the garden.

She is keen to share stories, opinions, learnings, recipes and tips on how to incorporate Paleo into your lifestyle, growing veggies at home in the backyard and training in a Crossfit box.

She hopes to give you the inspiration to take responsibility for your own health and well-being and also to put some tools in the tool-box to effect change.
