BLOGS – Low Carb, Paleo, Weston A Price, Misc

Weight of the Evidence: my brain explodes from much of the low carb/pleo nonsense that’s out there. Thankfully this site is an island of common sense  in an internet full of distorted and extreme views on following a low carb diet.

Review of Atkins “Rules”: I’ve found that most people who say they “do low carb” actually aren’t. Low carb does NOT mean NO CARB or induction level of carbs forever. Check out this page to get a good review of what low carb actually is.

The Carb-Sane Asylum: We’ve all seen sites where the latest in medical research has been twisted in some way to prove that a particular diet is the best. Stop by this site and check out some great discussions on current research and low carb/paleo diet related stuff. There’s no diets to push, no books to sell and no profits attempting to be made. Read and draw your own conclusions.

Whole9Life – authors of my new favorite book It Starts with Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways Great book and lots of info about the benefits of eating real food (paleo style)

Kelly The Kitchen Kop – blogs about real food a la Weston A Price.

Kalyn’s Kitchen – Great South Beach diet based recipes. Can be tailored to your nutritional needs easily. They all look great!

Wheat Belly – website and blog for author of the book Wheat Belly shares info, recipes and much more. Even if you don’t want to follow a low carb diet I would highly suggest going wheat free and see if it improves your sugar control as well as the way you feel.

Fat Head – edutainer Tom Naughton’s website/blog. He sells several DVD’s that not only will entertain you but educate you at the same time. Check out Big Fat Fiasco: How the misguided fear of saturated fat created a nation of obese diabetics and Science For
Smart People: Learn to tell good science from bad science … and laugh while you learn. Both are great and will give you some thought provoking things that may just change your mind about what you thought you knew about nutrition.

WordPress 101 For Boomers – I’m not a boomer and you may not be either but this is a great site to see video tutorials on how to use WordPress to construct your own blog. Great for visual learners.
