Top 10 Low-Carb Headlines Of 2010
Filed under: In The News — @ December 29, 2010
It’s almost become passé this time of the year to reflect on what has happened over the previous 12 months by compiling lists to recap the year. From the top news, sports, and entertainment stories, these lists are everywhere. But they are a friendly reminder of what has happened throughout the year that will very likely be remembered in the years to come. That’s why I decided to jump into the fray with a top 10 list of my own this year to highlight what I believe has been a banner year for livin’ la vida low-carb in 2010. Unlike any year since I’ve been paying attention to low-carb health and nutrition news, this one was without a doubt a game-changer in the mainstream of public thought when it comes to taking the healthy low-carb lifestyle more seriously not just as a weight loss tool (which it does a wonderful job with), but also for improving various aspects of health. It seemed like every month or so we’d see some headline extolling the virtues of restricting carbohydrates, increasing fat in your diet, or other basic principles that you hear me share about here at my blog and podcast each and every week. I don’t know if it’s the influence of the blogosphere, more readily available information online, Gary Taubes, the rise of the Paleo movement or what, but something has triggered a huge shift in thinking in the right direction about the high-fat, low-carb way of life. As someone who has absorbed his life into this topic for nearly seven years, I find it encouraging to see even a glimmer of hope for real lasting cultural change when it comes to nutrition as it relates to health.
Only time will tell if we’ll see this trend continue into 2011 and beyond, but for now click here for my Top 10 Low-Carb Headlines of 2010.
