Diabetes Blogger Gets Low-Carb Menu Help From New Forum

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ September 19, 2007

I recently blogged about my fellow health blogger Amy Tenderich from the uber-popular “Diabetes Mine” blog and her rather humorous post about obsessing over carbs as a Type 1 diabetic.

She made some excellent points in that column, although she is not an advocate of livin’ la vida low-carb as a lifestyle change per se. The Know Your Numbers, Outlive Your Diabetes author and I don’t always see eye-to-eye on the definition of a healthy diet, but that doesn’t stop us from mutually sharing in our mission to help educate, encourage and inspire our readers to improve themselves.

In that spirit, Amy recently asked me the following question in an e-mail:

“Since most diabetics seem to struggle with restricting carbs and figuring out what in the heck they can eat, I need your help. Could you share your TOP 20 FAVORITE LOW-CARB MEALS & SNACKS with me to share with my readers?”

Since I’ve been eating this way for nearly four years, it would have been pretty easy for me to come up with a quick 20 list for Amy to share with her readers. But, instead, I decided to let the members of my new “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Discussion” forum take a stab at it since they all have a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area–particularly my low-carb recipe moderator Linda.
