Low Carb Flax Meal Pizza Crust:

Looking for a way to eat (almost) everybody's
favorite meal while maintaining your low carb diet?

Here's a recipe that uses flax meal. Flax is also a
good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. For more info
check out

Here's the recipe:
"This is a variation of my flax meal focaccia bread.
It makes a pizza that is about 12 inches in diameter,
although you can spread it thinner and larger if you

1 and 1/2 C flax seed meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
Sweetener to equal about 1 Tablespoon of sugar

Preheat oven to 425 F.

4. Spread on pan (I put it on a silicon mat or
greased parchment paper).

Regina Wilshire Advancing The Low-Carb Cause

I'm always looking for interesting stories relating
to the low carb diet scene. Following's one from
a big low carb blogger Jimmy Moore.

Regina Wilshire Advancing The Low-Carb Cause:
"Jimmy Moore
January 24, 2006

The following is a reprint from the blog 'Livin' La
Vida Low-Carb':

Whew, I am one tired puppy today! After four
non-stop days in Brooklyn, New York, this past
weekend at the Nutritional & Metabolic
Aspects of Carbohydrate Restriction conference
was simultaneously exhilirating and draining.

Of course, an unexpected early morning wake-up
call on the first day of the conference on Friday
didn't help matters. But it was a fulfilling weekend
nonetheless. I can't wait to share with you lots
of pictures in the coming days from the conference,
but I wanted to set aside the very first picture and
post for a special lady I have grown to appreciate
greatly the more I have gotten to know her --
Regina Wilshire.

You know Regina. She's the woman behind the
popular 'Weight Of The Evidence' blog who is
dedicated to promoting the SCIENCE behind the
low-carb lifestyle and educating people on why it
works. Regina comes at explaining low-carb from
a much more scholarly position than I do, which I
think is sorely needed in a world full of ruthless
demagogue about what this way of eating is all about."

Clients' success guides woman toward surgery

Date published: 1/22/2006


Pick a diet--any diet. There's a good chance
Margaret Fernandez has tried it.

When she was a pudgy 13-year-old, her mom
signed her up for Weight Watchers.

She gained weight.

She then went on a long list of other diets, exercised
and even took dieting pills. But Fernandez said while
she'd take off 20 pounds here and there, she'd later
put on 60.

"You just get to a point where you're like 'What the
heck? What do I do?'" she said.

Fernandez suffers from many conditions common in
overweight people: high blood pressure, sleep apnea
and type 2 diabetes. She also has Polycystic Ovarian
Syndrome, a disease in women that blocks
menstruation and can cause weight gain.

She had trouble finding the sugar-free, low-carb
foods she knew she needed. So Fernandez started her
own business, carb and Carbway Low Carb
Foods in Fredericksburg. It sells vitamins, supplements,
and foods that are high in protein, low in carbohydrates
and sugar-free.

At first, Fernandez says she was excited at the prospect
of helping diabetics such as herself. Then gastric-bypass
patients started coming in.

Low Carb? High Protein? OR Both?

As an advocate of the low carb diet, I still
believe moderation is the best guide.

Sure, cut back on the carbs BUT don't kill
yourself trying to accomplish a low carb diet.

What you really need's a lower carb, higher
protein diet and a good excercise program.

If you're combining a low carb diet along with
a good excercise program (lifting weights is
HIGHLY recommended!), you HAVE to
increase your protein intake to support
muscle growth.

This in turn helps with weight loss (or
rather fat loss because you may indeed gain
a little weight due to muscle weighing more
than fat!) and also helps to keep your bodys
metabolism higher because muscle is an
active tissue where as fat's a storage

Here's what one former lowfat proponent had
to say about a higher protein diet and its effects:

Posted on 01-17-2006 06:54:16 by April Smith
Original post on April's Calorie Restriction Diary

"I was a lowfat vegan for years, and I felt like I ate
all the time! I was thin... between 110 and 115 most
of the time... but I was anxious, hungry (hence the
constant eating), had insane sugar cravings, and
lacked the mental focus I have now.

Eating enough protein (okay maybe more than enough)
and a decent amount of unsaturated fat has totally changed
my life, not just my diet. It was easy to lose weight once I
made those changes, and maintaining takes no effort

My first changes on CR were cutting out bread and pasta,
cutting all drinks except for red wine, and ceasing to put
sugar in my coffee. Now, I rarely leave the house without
29 grams of eggwhite power protein in my body.

And it has made all the difference. "

So as you can see, some simple dietary changes along
with a little moderation can make a lot of difference!

Low Carb, Low Sugar, Low Salt: Menu for a Healthy Lifestyle

Low Carb, Low Sugar, Low Salt:
Menu for a Healthy Lifestyle

"These days, the catchphrases for health seem to

Low carb, low fat, low sugar, low salt, blood

become part of our everyday lexicon, pat phrases
that roll off of consumers' tongues as easily as
' non-fat soy latte' did in what seems like only

Mediterranean Diet: New Study shows It's Great For Weight Loss And your Heart

"Mediterranean Diet: New Study shows It's Great
For Weight Loss And your Heart by Karen Wild

The Mediterranean diet first became popular as a
heart health diet, but its role may be changing. In
the 1960's it was discovered that some people in the
Mediterranean, particularly those from Crete, had a
significantly longer life expectancy than people
elsewhere in the world. Their diet, which is high in
vegetables, meat, pasta, beans, cereals, olive oil and
wine, seemed to have the ability to protect them from
heart disease and stroke.

Today, though, it may become known as a weight loss
diet. Spanish Researchers studying the eating habits of
1,547 men and 1615 women aged 25-74, recently found
that the more closely subjects followed the diet, the
lower their body fat levels became. This was surprising,
because, in other studies it had been seen that
Mediterraneans were not exactly slim and that contrasted
sharply to the usual expectation that if you're fat, you're
more likely to die of a stroke or heart attack.

The Mediterranean diet, is lower in foods like pastas,
cheese, red meats, milk and lard than a common European
diet, which some believe account for the differences in
longevity. But sticking to lower glycemic carbs like the
beans and cereals also causes a lower insulin response
which is linked to the storage of fat in our bodies. Low carb
advocates say that the Mediterranean diet works even
better when it's modified to lower the carbs, believing it
will speed up the fat loss while continuing to provide the
positive heart benefits.

So get the best of both worlds. Eat like Crete, with a low
carb twist. And speed your way to quick weight loss and
a long healthy life.
