Jimmy’s story: In January 2004, at 32 years of age and weighing 186kg, Jimmy Moore made a decision to get rid of the weight that was literally killing him. A year later, he had shed 180 pounds, shrunk his waist by 20 inches, and dropped his shirt size from 5XL to XL. He achieved this by eating a diet low in carbohydrate and high in fat. He did everything that our current dietary guidelines recommend that we DON’T do! Come and hear Jimmy’s story and hear about his new book Keto Clarity.

Author: Prof. Grant Schofield

I am Grant Schofield, Professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology and director of the university's Human Potential Centre (HPC) located at the Millennium Campus in Auckland, New Zealand. My research and teaching interests are in wellbeing and chronic disease prevention especially reducing the risk and eventual mortality and morbidity from obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. I live by the motto "be the best you can be" and have a strong commitment to peak performance in which I also do consulting work. I’ve been interested in human health and performance for my whole career. I started in psychology, went into sport and exercise psychology, then into public health, especially physical activity, then obesity. There have been some twists and turns along the way, which are the reasons for why I do what I do – you can read about those in my first blog entry. I want to know how we can be the best we can be. This crosses disciplines such as biology, medicine, pubic health, and productivity management. The cornerstones are nutrition, exercise, sleep, neuroscience, psychology and wellbeing. In my blog, I cover these topics under the broad heading of the Science of Human Potential.

  1. Please explain this – Jimmy Moore has been UNABLE to maintain a stable weight since 1999 – he’s gained and lost in excess of 7900 lbs in that time and on his ketogenic diet he’s admitted to a recent weight gain of at least 35 lbs – so why should he be listened to?

    1. The short answer is, that in medicine you really want to be listening to the people who suffer from the conditions you’re interested in, if they’re prepared to share their insights. Also, we’re really not about the cosmetic aspects of BMI and making everyone skinny. At any given weight, the same person can be much healthier or much sicker. In most cases people get healthier as they lose weight on LCHF, but if in the overweight category they can sometimes get fitter, have less pain, lower sugar and insulin and so on, without weight change – which is still an excellent result.
