The “Other White Meat” Can Be Soooo Good!

I’ll be honest. I was never a fan of pork as a kid. Whenever my mom would make pork chops, hot dogs, sausages or anything else that was remotely pork like, I would stifle a gag (lest I be whacked over the head with a spoon).

As I grew up though, I got to [...]

Golden Corral Great for Low Carbers…

My hubby and I, who are currently on a low carb diet to lose weight for the summer time, have been on it now for about two weeks. We found ourselves out and about today, and we got hungry, but we weren’t sure where we should go where we could eat and still stick to [...]

The Fat and Carb Condundrum

My hubby and I are on a low carb diet right now, trying to get into summer time shape. One thing we both understand about low carb diets is that the weight may not be coming off as quickly as you’d like, especially if you have already done the low carb diet several times, [...]

New Low Carb Snack, Lunch Ideas Page

My hubby and I have been low carbing it for a few weeks now, and sometimes you run out of ideas on what to eat, or you might get bored of eating the same things over and over for your lunches and snacks, which are two of the hardest meals (I think) to be [...]

Are There Any Sweetener Alternatives That Aren’t Bad for You?

It seems like every time the sugar alternative industry comes up with a new industry darling artificial sweetener, the world falls in love. Until, that is, the bad news starts coming out about it.  This happened with Splenda, the sugar substitute with the chemical name sucralose that came out a while ago that claimed [...]

Dreamfields Pasta – Really Lower Carb?

I always tend to snicker a little to myself when I see these phoney baloney claims about “net carbs”. To me, it all seems like a big ploy to get people to buy a product that is still just as high in overall calories, and still fairly high in carbs, just because they think [...]

Low Carb Diets and Colon Cancer Risk

When I was on a low carb diet, hard core, years ago, when low carb diets were all the rage, I remember having a difficult time “going to the bathroom”.  It seemed like there just wasn’t enough bulk to produce smooth bowel movements, and I always had that constipated, sort of “stopped up” feeling.

No Carbs After 5:00 a Good Diet Rule?

I remember reading that a famous star (I think it was Pamela Anderson), years ago, followed the advice that someone in her family gave about losing weight when she needed to take a few pounds off.  It has to do with a hot topic – carbohydrate consumption.

Not that I’ve ever seen this twiggy [...]

Cutting Carbs After the Holidays?

One of the ways that a lot of people find very useful in helping them cut weight very quickly as compared to other diet regimens is to dramatically cut their carb intake.  I am one of those people. Unfortunately for me, long term low carb diets just don’t make me function at my peak [...]
