Last year on the 2013 Low Carb Cruise, Dana Carpender Interviewed Dr. Annika Dahlqvist and Dr. Ralf Sundberg – two leaders in the Swedish Low Carb / High Fat movement. The nine minute interview on the last day of the 2013 Low Carb Cruise includes a discussion about Dr. Dahlqvist’s success in changing the Swedish government’s mind about the validity of the low carb / high fat plan as well as the (negative) role pharmaceutical companies play in public health – ALL OVER THE WORLD.
I bought a Sodastream Fizz Home Soda Maker Value Kit and I love it! It makes a great gift for your family or the low carb dieter you know who has everything. Each container of diet soda is easy-to-make, cost effective and tastes just like regular diet soda (except it uses Splenda as a sweetener instead of aspartame). You can even make regular soda for those who don’t drink diet sodas.
Why is it that we usually say that “Thanksgiving is the time of year we give thanks for…” and list a bunch of things we are thankful for? There’s nothing wrong with that, but why aren’t we vocal more often about this incredible life we have been given?

These high protein, low carb cookies are great as meal replacements, snacks, or special rewards on your low carb lifestyle. In Italy they are called “protobisco” (protein biscuit) and are top sellers in Italy, France and the rest of Europe. They’re great if you’re diabetic too because they have no sugar and taste great. Enjoy them at home or put them in a briefcase, gym bag or purse to have anytime and anywhere.
Think about the myriad of images that pop into your head whenever you hear the simple yet overused phrase “heart-healthy.” We see this wording plastered across the packaging of so many products these days that it seems consumers appreciate that they are being marketed foods and other products that will ostensibly help keep their cardiovascular health in tip-top shape. Jimmy Moore looks at the 5 top products/foods being marketed as ‘heart-healthy” where there is proof that they actually are not.
