Last week I posted on how the media disses low-carb diets by neglecting to mention them, even when these diets are a huge part of a story. I discussed the CNN spot on Phill Novak, a man who lost 200 pounds by following a low-carb diet. Reading the CNN piece or watching the video gives the impression that Mr. Novac accomplished this weight-loss feat simply by exercising.
Jimmy Moore tracked Mr. Novak down and got an interview with him that can be heard here on Jimmy’s podcast.
According to the interview, Mr. Novak spent seven hours with the CNN people and told them all about his low-carb diet. But that wasn’t the story they were interested in. They wanted to talk about exercise, and so they did.
Says Mr. Novak in his interview:
Another thing they didn’t touch on in that article: low-carb is the easiest weight-loss plan…
Listen to Jimmy’s podcast to hear a tremendously enthusiastic man who has walked the low-carb walk talk about it. It’s truly inspirational.
