Dana Carpender’s Still Got The Low-Carb Mojo!

Filed under: Celebrity — @ February 21, 2007

For those of you who are new to CarbWire and what’s happening in the low-carb community over the past few years, you may or may not be aware of who Dana Carpender is. She’s probably the most well-known and prolific low-carb author out there sharing the positive message of the low-carb lifestyle to the masses through her incredible cookbooks.

But last March, I was quite critical of her decision to change the name of her column from “Low Carb For Life” to “Cook Well, Eat Well.” Soon thereafter, Dana released her very first cookbook ever that did not have the term “low-carb” in the title. That’s not to say the book isn’t “low-carb,” but it certainly has not being marketed that way.

In this changing media climate regarding low-carb diets, I can certainly understand why she made these changes, but it was still disappointing that this great spokesperson for livin’ la vida low-carb had to bow to the publishing gods and remove “low-carb” from the description of what and who she is. In my interview with her last year, she explained why she thinks low-carb is not as important as glycemic load. Okay, I can understand people who feel that way.

But what’s the old saying about you can take the dog out of the hunt, but you can’t take the hunt out of the dog? Sorry Dana, I’m not calling you a dog except to say you are STILL fighting VERY hard to get the low-carb message out there and your latest column proves it yet again.
