A huge thank you to Life Script, the premier website for women’s health, for the feature article on Carb Wars, which included 7 recipes with pictures and a story written by Nicole McEwen. Life Script is the 4th largest independent health site and the 10th largest women’s online community.
Judging by the comments, the article evoked the usual controversy among the pro- and anti-low carb factions, even though the writer softened my message somewhat by suggesting that lack of exercise might be responsible for the obesity epidemic and leaving the impression that I endorse eating cereal as long as it is topped with sugar-free milk (which I do, IF it is one of my cereal recipes).

Here’s a chance for you to state your support for low carb by going to and leaving a comment.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

Thanks for the sympathy PJNoir.

It is hard to believe how deep the prejudice runs. I think carb addition is part of the problem too. A lot of people really WANT to think that sugar is not that bad because they can't bear to give it up. But change is coming–believe it.

Wow- those ladies really ripped into you. I'm sorry- I live defending low carb every day and deal with the same mis-information like a broken record. Even my doctor fails to see the benefit of my low carb diet, even after a 40 lb lost in weight, improved BG numbers, lower blood pressure and the best trig, ac1 and cholesterol numbers ever. I guess the body line is I'm (we) a threat to the drug company and how they treat patients
