8: How to Breakthrough Adversity and Inspire the World with Jimmy Moore

In episode 8 on #MerryBiz podcast we chat with one of our fellow wellbeing entrepreneurs!

His story starts in 2004, when he weighted over 185 kilos and realised he needed to make a drastic change to save his own life.

1 year on he had lost 80 kilos and over 50cm from his weight.

After his dramatic turn around he now dedicates his life to helping as many people find the info they need to make healthy changes to their lifestyle.

He is the Best selling author of Cholesterol Clarity, Keto Clarity and the Ketogenic Cookbook as well as the founder of Livin La Vida Low Carb!
