Recommendations

As time moves forward, I'll layer in resources, products, websites, books, etc. My goal is to create a hub of information that is "complete", while also evolving as time moves forward, new information comes on the scene, I change my mind about something, etc.

(I secretly wish and hope that my own website evolves to be good enough to be included within this list. Oh, to dream!)

For now, here's what we have to start with!

Great Website Resources and Recipes

In a typical day, I might see heart attacks, strokes, out-of-control diabetes (both types 1 and 2), pneumonia, skin infections, broken hips, chest or abdominal pain, severe high blood pressure, kidney failure, and urinary tract infections. I am absolutely convinced that better diet and lifestyle choices can help individuals live longer, healthier lives.

The way I see it, I didn't choose the low carb lifestyle, it chose me. After being diagnosed with gestational diabetes during my third pregnancy, I began watching my carb intake. And when the diabetes decided to stick around, I refused to give up my lifelong passion for baking and cooking. I just had to find new ways to do it. To my delight, I have discovered that with a little ingenuity and some perseverance, many high carb recipes can be made over into low carb treats without sacrificing flavor. I've had quite a bit of success, with a few outright failures thrown in to keep me humble.

My husband had always said he would never live to retire because of health problems and family history, and he took early retirement to be close to his grandchildren so they would remember him. His weight, blood pressure and blood lipid profile had gotten steadily worse over the years. Every time he went to the doctor, his medications would be increased, and he was starting to get serious side effects. I first learned about low-carb diets from a friend and decided to see if that would help get him off some of his many medications. I knew he would eat what I gave him as long as it was good. Six months later, he went in for his regular checkup. When the test results came in the mail, the Dr. had written "Way to go!" across the bottom. (The Dr. had no idea how he had done it, and never asked.) We have been committed to the low-carb life and enjoying its benefits ever since.

I just stick with simple recipes, lots of veggies and salads and I drink nearly a gallon of water per day. I really like eating low carb. Even though I've lost 50 pounds and have reached my ideal weight, I will eat this way for the rest of my life. There is enough nutrition and variety to this way of eating that I can't even think of going back to eating bread, pasta, rice and such. To me they are just filler and not necessary to a satisfying meal. When I do occasionally have a treat, I ask myself if the thing is good enough to risk gaining a little weight or if it's just not that good. Very few things are worth the indulgence if you really think about it. You'll also find, after you've been on this diet for awhile, that foods you thought you could never live without really don't taste all that good anymore.

My name is Amy, and I'll start of by saying right up front that I'm nobody special. I'm just a regular person, likely just like you. I have those hairy days when I put my pantyhose on inside out, struggle to find my keys, diaper the cat, and pay the bills with a crayon. I've had the same kind of struggles with weight gain and health as most people that will read this website. My purpose in starting this website, so many years ago, was so that I could vent my frustrations, celebrate my victories, keep myself accountable, occasionally unleash my inner moron, and just journal the whole crazy experience.

WheatBellyBlog.com

Who had the audacity to write such an against-the-grain book exposing "healthy whole grains" for the incredibly destructive genetic monsters they've become? That's me, Dr. William Davis, cardiologist and seeker-of-truth in health. Over 80% of the people I meet today are pre-diabetic or diabetic. In an effort to reduce blood sugar, I asked patients to remove all wheat products from their diet based on the simple fact that, with few exceptions, foods made of wheat flour raise blood sugar higher than nearly all other foods.

Where to Buy Stuff

Netrition.com

This website sells a variety of health related products, from vitamins to workout aids. However, where they really shine is in their low carb products department. The ratings are honest and accurate. Read through the customer comments. I've also seen them investigate products and remove them from their inventory, if they don't stack up to their claims. It's a business with integrity. The stuff they claim is good ... is actually good, too!

Amazon.com

If you're a human, chances are, you've heard of Amazon.com. I almost feel silly listing it, here. However, it never occured to me to look for low carb products within their massive website. Only recently have I started to buy low carb products from them. They've often got great prices and a huge selection! Recommended as a place to look (if it hadn't occured to you, much like it hadn't for me).

iHerb.com

One other place I tend to buy stuff from is iHerb.com. I like how they present their supplements. They're quick to send them and I've always had good service. At minimum, take a multi-vitamin and some kind of Omega 3. Shop around for a good one, with good ratings and a decent cost. That said ... it's tough to put a price on health. It's all you've really got!
