The Sweet Part Of A Low-Carb Diet

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

In our eagerness to pump out another video in our new “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube” series, Christine and I went a bit long with Episode 4. It’s not so much that we don’t want to do longer videos, but YouTube limits the length to NO MORE THAN 10 MINUTES.

I found out this little factoid the hard way last night when I was up until 2AM trying to whittle this thing down to size so we didn’t have to record it over again! UGH!

We had recorded a new video yesterday afternoon on artificial sweeteners and what a low-carb dieter can do to get something sweet in their diet. It was the usual fun video and I even started off serenading Christine with my own unique rendition of “Sugar, Awww Honey Honey.” Plus, at the end, we gave a BIG shout out to all the wonderful people at my new “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Discussion” forum.

Unfortunately, the raw feed went 13 1/2 minutes long and that didn’t even count the intro and outro! BOO HOO! Oh well, so I had to chop off the front and the back and leave the primary meat of the video as the totality of the content. It’s just a lesson learned for future videos to keep a closer eye on the clock.

So, with that perspective in mind, now you’ll understand why it seems the video abruptly begins and ends. Sorry about that, we’ll do better next time. Check it out as we talk about Splenda, aspartame, xylitol, maltitol, oligofructose, and erythritol as well products that contain these sweeteners:

Yes, I know about stevia and even included several minutes of the original video talking about this all-natural supplement that’s a popular sweetening agent that low-carbers use, but it was part of the chopping block. Perhaps I could do an entire video just on the subject of stevia since it is becoming more and more popular.

Leave a comment for Episode 4 and be sure to rate it and favorite it if you enjoyed what was presented. :) If not, then I’d still love to know what you thought about it.
