Low-Carb Living Embraced By Those On Weight Watchers

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ December 1, 2006

It is so gratifying to me whenever I hear about one of my readers taking the information they received from my writings and spreading it to those who are in desperate need of answers to their weight and health problems. This whole idea of “pay it forward” that people like Oprah Winfrey are advocating right now is indeed a powerful one that can produce immeasurable results well into the future.

When I lost 180 pounds on the Atkins diet in 2004, I had no idea at the time that I would be writing about low-carb living, weight loss, and health at several different web sites and still talking about it in a weekly podcast show two years later. All I know is that my life was forever changed and the ripple effects soon began in earnest.

It commenced immediately in my own spheres of influence, then spread into my community with exposure in the local media, and finally got out there nationally and internationally when I started blogging and published my book about my weight loss.

Now I’m privileged to see some of the people I have been able to come into contact with telling others about livin’ la vida low-carb with unbelievable results. One such example of this came to me in my e-mail inbox from a regular reader on Wednesday.

This person is a Type 2 diabetic who has lost 90 pounds on the low-carb lifestyle and he wanted to show his support for a co-worker who joined Weight Watchers. Although he does not support the nutritional approach of the Weight Watchers program, he wanted to be a part of the group for “mutual support.”
