There are plenty of candidates for testing and I want to try to get to as many of them as possible over the course of the next year or so.I think this is too important for the low-carb community to simply gloss over and turn a blind eye to.Somebody will inevitably chime in with the all-too-familiar initials YMMV which stands for “your mileage may vary.” And it’s certainly true as has been articulated by people like Gary Taubes regarding a person’s tolerance to foods. The sooner you can accept that as a reality, the sooner you’ll be able to become pro-active in doing what is right for your weight and health.Is it fair that some people are able to eat foods that we cannot because their bodies handle it better? All of this got me to thinking about the foods I consume as part of my healthy low-carb lifestyle and whether I’m maximizing my ability to improve my weight (which is higher than I’d like it to be, but still well over triple-digits lower than the 410 pounds I was in 2004) and my health (which I cannot complain about with stellar blood lipids, steady blood sugar control, and an overall healthy and active 39-year old body even if I do say so myself).We have to know how certain foods we are consuming are impacting our blood sugars and the only way to know with certainty is to test.While my body may respond in a certain way to these various foods I’ll be testing, that doesn’t mean they’ll do the same in your body.
It's been a fun extracurricular venture and it's nice to see that some of the work has an extended shelf-life!
If you're watching LOST for the first time, watched awhile ago but want to relive some of LOST's glory days, want to have an archived version of some old web material for posterity, or just give a little nod of appreciation to the writers that kept you entertained for 6 years (and beyond) I encourage you to check it out.
And of course, pass the word on to any friends or family that might be interested.
That simply means we each have varying nutritional and fitness needs that require a customized plan to meet us where we are metabolically, physically, and even psychologically.
It’s that final point–psychologically–that usually leads so many of us low-carbers to seek out special treats that we hope fit within our commitment to a carbohydrate-restricted diet.
