But what about carbs?

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Doesn’t your body need carbs?  Isn’t low carbohydrate unhealthy?  Do you just eat bacon and eggs? I hear this all the time.  And now, half a year later, I just laugh.  I don’t eat a no-carb diet.  Low carb doesn’t necessarily mean no-carb.  I get my carbs from vegetables. They actually have a fair amount […]

Xtreme low carb – Caveman style

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Having been eating low carb pretty seriously for the last 5+ months and now having lost 61 lbs in that time frame, I think it’s time to go even further.  This time I’m going extreme low carb.  I’m cutting out dairy.  And preservatives – definitely preservatives.  Except salt. I do think we need some salt, […]

Jack LaLanne made it 96 trips around the sun

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Health guru and icon Jack LaLanne died today.  He was 96 years young.  A pretty good role model for what to eat, I’d say.

Low carb science : Fact or fiction?

Monday, January 17th, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely a recovering sugar junkie.  From early on just as a kid, it was sugar that I craved.  I remember as a kid walking a mile one way (in the snow uphill both ways) to the convenience store just to buy candy on a frequent basis.  I […]

A Low Carb Diet Plan

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I finally finished putting up an example of my first week of a low carb diet plan.  It’s a whole weeks worth of low carb recipes and snack suggestions. For the first week or two in particular, I keep the recipes very basic and simple to make.  And the entire goal of the first week […]

Fattest country in the world?

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

This video by ABC news shows that a little tiny island nation in the South Pacific is technically the fattest country in the world. With a population of around 10,000, the people of the Republic of Nauru have recently adopted a Western diet and are now more obese than ever.  95% of those folks are overweight and half of them […]
