Now More Than Ever, Ignore The Low-Carb Opposition

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ March 6, 2007

I want to talk about those people in your life who I like to describe as “negative naysayers.” Oh, you know who I’m talking about. While these people who are your friends and family may come across as very supportive in your efforts to lose weight and get healthy, the truth is they don’t want you to do it with a low-carb diet.

Yes, the constant negative bias against the low-carb lifestyle is one of the biggest challenges you will face when you make this way of eating your preferred method for weight loss. I heard so many of these ridiculous excuses for NOT doing low-carb often enough that I had to devote several pages of my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” book to help people counter each of them.

It really is a sad state of affairs when you are sincerely doing what you think is best for YOU to lose weight and get healthy–and yet people oppose HOW you are doing it! What’s up with that?! Shouldn’t people applaud your desire to shed the pounds for good with a healthy nutritional approach? Don’t count on it!

As much as you and I would love to have the approval of our misinformed loved ones, the fact of the matter is most people don’t know enough about low-carb living to understand how and why it works. I think the research that is coming out about it is helping, but we are still a long way from universal acceptance.
