Welcome back Jimmy! Jimmy is most well known for his wildly popular blog and podcast LivinLavidalowcarb as well as his book Cholesterol Clarity where along with leading experts he helped shed light on the emerging research around heart disease and what causes it. We had Jimmy way back on Episode 16 and if you haven’t listened to it yet, it’s a must listen as Jimmy tells his personal journey of fat loss as well. It also serves as a great primer for this book which is the one he wanted to write first.
When I learned Jimmy and Dr. Westman were working on a new book called Keto Clarity, I knew we had to have him on to talk about the latest research in low carb living. And in particular nutritional ketosis.
