Unless You’re ‘Very Fit And Lean’ Don’t Bother Blogging About Diet And Fitness

David thinks I should look like this guy before I can blog about diet

It’s a new year and people are scouring the Internet looking for a way to make themselves skinny and healthy through that perfect nutrition and fitness plan for them. Some will fall for the first thing they find and think it’s the best plan for them while others will spend hours researching and Googling everything they can get their hands on about their chosen program. I think it’s great people get excited about losing weight and turning their health around this time of year. But I only wish they’d KEEP that excitement for more than a few days, weeks, or months down the road–they’d be MUCH better off if they did.

Now that I’ve been blogging for nearly four years about healthy low-carb living, new people are finding my columns all the time. I’ve written over 2600 posts so there’s a lot of information I’ve put out there on the Internet for people to find out more about livin’ la vida low-carb. I consider it a true privilege to have the opportunity to share my success story with others and encourage them as they take this journey to better health for themselves. When I blog about the new low-carb research, recipes, news items and more, I feel I am providing people a great service that they can apply to their own lives. And it’s FREE!

But not everyone thinks my writings are worth reading.

On Friday I received a comment under my Before & After Pics tab from a man named David Fournier who challenged my right to share about the low-carb lifestyle because of what I look like in the latest photo of me in early December 2008. According to David, I have a lot more work to do on my own obesity problem before I dare share anything about the low-carb life on my blog.
