Low-Carb Luxury, Have You Called It A Day?

Filed under: Publications — @ May 20, 2007

Online since 1999, Low-Carb Luxury has taken a sudden hiatus

Long before the days of CarbWire or my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog which have only been online for the past few years, there was an amazing low-carb magazine called Low-Carb Luxury that began back in 1999 prior to the big hey day of the “low-carb craze” that hit in 2003-2004. Professionally written and with a gorgeous layout, this was and still is the premier low-carb magazine on the Internet.

The brainchild of a 100-pound Atkins low-carb weight loss success story named Lora Ruffner along with her faithful companion Neil Beaty (an extremely talented photographer by the way), Low-Carb Luxury has been at the top of their game for low-carb information for nearly a decade. I’m very proud of the road they paved over the years so that web sites and blogs like mine could flourish and prosper even after the supposed decline in interest. NOT!

In fact, I named Ruffner and Beaty in my list of the Top 10 Movers & Shakers of 2005. Although I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting them in person, I am personally grateful for their many years of product reviews, low-carb advocacy, and keeping it all in perspective through their unstoppable resource.

But one of my readers e-mailed me recently echoing the concerns that many of you have had about what has happened to Low-Carb Luxury. They haven’t updated their site since February and many are speculating that the days of Low-Carb Luxury have come to an end.
