331: Steve Siebold Says ‘Die Fat or Get Tough!’


Hello and welcome back to The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore! In today’s podcast, Jimmy has three great segments to share.

Carnie Wilson
First, Carnie Wilson of the music group Wilson Phillips recently had a baby and has put on a part of the weight she famously lost by gastric bypass surgery. She’s working with TV’s Dr. Oz to get back to her fighting weight. Carnie and Dr. Oz Show producers invited Jimmy to participate in a round-table interview of her this week and we’re pleased to present the question he asked her.

Rich Vos

Next up, our newest sponsor is Rich Vos of Results Typical, a trainer who wants to help you get fit, healthy and toned. Listen in for a short talk with Jimmy and Rich.

Finally, our main interview for today’s episode is with motivational speaker Steve Siebold, author of Die Fat or Get Tough. Steve is an outspoken teacher on the theme that weight loss (like so much else in life) is a matter of personal responsibility. If you are fat, his thinking goes, you made yourself that way. Don’t BLAME yourself or beat yourself up, but DO realize that you’ll never lose the weight until you accept that the weight is yours to lose, and you need to develop mental toughness to achieve your weight goal.
