Low-Carb Is Here To Stay, But What Do We Call It?

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ March 15, 2007

Take a listen to Episode 34 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore” to hear one of my biggest pet peeves:

If using the term “low-carb” is so incredibly offensive to people in the year 2007 (I argue it’s not), then what shall we call it instead? That’s what I discuss in Episode 34 and I’m curious about what you think of the various alternatives that have been proposed which I discuss in today’s show.

Get your fix of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” by:

What do you think about the semantics debate within the community formerly known as low-carb? Are advocates of this way of eating right to try to disassociate themselves from this term because of the negative stigma that has been unfairly attached to it? Or do you agree with me that now more than ever we should stick to our guns and keep using this term to define it the right way? Share your thoughts let us know what you think.

Today I will be working the floor at the Hearth, Patio, & Barbecue Association (HPBA) Expo in Reno, Nevada (read about my interesting plane ride across the country yesterday) to bring you some interesting interviews for future episodes of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.” You asked for them and now I’m trying to deliver, so hold on to your hat! The best is yet to come!
