Distinguishing Between Low-Carb The Lifestyle and Low-Carb The Business

Filed under: Low-carb Stores — @ April 8, 2006

Are you tired of hearing all the media accounts that low-carb is dead and that it failed to help people find a permanent way to lose weight and keep it off forever? Yeah, so am I!

After losing over 180 pounds thanks to the low-carb lifestyle, it frustrates me to no end to have to still read news stories like this one continuing to mischaracterize and distort what low-carb living is all about.

The evidence that these media types generally point to is the fact that so many of the low-carb stores that popped up a couple of years ago have either shut down their doors or gone bankrupt. But is that the fault of the low-carb lifestyle?

bq. The success of the low-carb diet is NOT dependent or tied in any way to the businesses that sell low-carb products. I remember being interviewed on my local talk radio station right after Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection in August 2005. Everyone wanted to know what I was going to do now that Atkins is going bankrupt. My response was that I was gonna keep on livin’ la vida low-carb and keep my weight under control like I always had because the business of low-carb has absolutely NOTHING in the world to do with being on the low-carb nutritional approach.
