Today in Episode 56 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends it’s a bittersweet day for all of us here at this fun, weekly podcast dedicated to looking at the health headlines from the vantage point of healthy low-carb living. That’s because the brainchild for this show has wisely decided to leave her co-hosting duties to be with her family, especially a daughter who is a senior in high school this year, when they need her the most. For the past year and a half, Mindy Noxon Iannotti has been an integral element in the success of “Low-Carb Conversations” and we are sad to see her go.

When Mindy approached veteran low-carb podcaster Jimmy Moore about the idea of doing a podcast like this one, it was a no-brainer to him and he signed on right away to be a part of it. If you’ve been listening for a while, then you know how Jimmy and Mindy would regularly talk about what it is like living the low-carb life through all the ups, downs and in betweens. In other words, REAL LIFE! And all the while they have enjoyed sharing the journey with their guest friends week in and week out.

Don’t worry, this podcast isn’t going anywhere! But Mindy’s presence will be sorely missed by everyone. She is an incredible woman with a perspective that connected with so many people on a weekly basis. In fact, I bet Mindy had no idea how many lives she has impacted by sharing her story on “Low-Carb Conversations.” Don’t you dare miss the end of today’s episode where we have a very special surprise for Mindy from many of those listeners she has touched with her work on this show.

For Mindy’s farewell episode, she invited back her Low-Carb Cruise dinner table buddies Amy Dungan from the “Healthy Low-Carb Living” blog and Kent Altena from the “Atkins Diet Geek” blog to join her and Jimmy one last time together to discuss some of the latest health headlines, including the Dukan Diet creator describing obese people as “mentally ill,” whether cutting carbs in your diet is the best way to shed the pounds, cattle ranchers who are turning to old chocolate not fit for human consumption (wrappers and all!) as a feed alternative to rising corn prices, if Marilyn Monroe kept her curvaceous figure by following a low-carb Paleo-styled diet, a medical doctor who gives you four ways to know if your primary care physician “sucks,” the burnout epidemic taking place in the medical profession, a recent Gallup poll examining American attitudes and perceptions about low-fat and low-carb diets and an incredibly revealing and refreshingly honest blog post from Stacy Toth at Paleo Parents. Today is a time for celebration of a great human being and friend who has done so much to enrich our lives just by being here every Friday. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk one final time with Mindy and the gang gabbing it up one final last for old time’s sake.

  • I was waiting for it!!!! I knew it was coming!!! Jimmy said Hell no!!!
    Again Mindy, I want to say good bye. Hang in there, kids tend to make you realize that you are no longer cool. But it dosesn’t matter
    family must always come first, the coolness will return. Been there, sorta, done that. Be well.
    As far as a quality doctor is concerned…that doesn’t suck. I want my doctor to know as much about health and nutrition as I do. Not having a goos working knowledge in low carb is inexcuseable since it is a basic health concept. Good healthy bicepts don’t hurt eaither…Oh and being really cute doesn’t hurt…Will consider all qualified applicants 😉
    When I look at pictures of Marilyn Monroe, I realize that my body looks way more like her’s than it does Angelina Jolie’s. Who would have thought that she would have so much dietary inspiration.
