Let’s Have A ‘Low-Carb Diet Craze’ Extravagana

Filed under: In The News — @ January 9, 2008

I used to get a bit perturbed by that phrase “low-carb diet craze” because I thought it made those of us who believe in livin’ la vida low-carb sound like a bunch of raving lunatics (well, not all of us are!). But the more I’ve thought about it, the better I’ve felt about the “craze” description because everywhere you turn somebody is saying SOMETHING about the low-carb lifestyle. Much of the time, especially in media accounts of this way of eating, it is the WRONG perspective, but at least they’re still talking about it (despite claiming for the past four years that “low-carb” is dead).

Now that 2008 is here, the continued stories from people who are eating low-carb as well as news and commentary in the media and blogosphere have shown me that this “craze” is still just as strong as it has ever been. There’s so much to share with you today that it’s coming out my ears, so sit back and enjoy all this stuff I’ve found from over the past week about a diet that supposedly nobody does anymore. HA!

Here’s just a taste of the stories I covered today:
