Priest Says Low-Carb Good For Body And Soul

The good news about low-carb has unusually penetrated the media this week with various positive stories about livin' la vida low-carb.

This New York state-based Journal News story about a Roman Catholic priest named Rev. Clement J. Machado who has been on a low-carb lifestyle for the past two year to keep his physical body in good health.

Purchasing such delicacies as low-carb pasta and high-protein dishes at a local health food store, Rev. Machado said he was pleased to find the low-carb approach to eating because it "helps me live a healthier lifestyle."

He quickly added: "God wants things that are conducive to good health."

You tell 'em, Rev.! How can the media be critical of a priest promoting the virtues of the low-carb lifestyle as a healthy eating plan? I believe strongly that God wants us to take care of the temple (our body) that he has entrusted to us by keeping it as fit as we possibly can. Rev. Machado realizes that and is leading by example.

Interestingly, Rev. Machado got started on a low-carb plan in 2003 because he wanted to have more energy, lose weight and ward off the diabetes that is prevalent in his family.

It is certainly good for doing all three of those things. I have experienced them myself and can relate well with Rev. Machado's reasons for starting low-carb.

Enjoying steak and shrimp with low-carb rolls as a meal, Rev. Machado credits being able to find succulent low-carb foods from his local health food store.

I don't have a health food store in my area that provides good low-carb products. However, I have been able to find a host of excellent low-carb foods such as apple spice cake, lemon pie, peanut butter cookies, ZERO-carb bagels and breads and much, much more at a great online low-carb store called Kick The Carbz.

Oh my gosh, if you haven't tried some of the foods offered by my friend Linda at her Ohio-based store, then you are really missing out on an entire part of livin' la vida low-carb that can make this journey a whole lot easier on you! I wish I had found these products sooner!

Subtitled "Low Carb Heaven," the web site is stocked full of so many delicious foods, you'll have a tough time figuring out which ones to choose. Their slogan states, "We Make Low-Carb Taste Great... So You Can Look And Feel Great... Now You Can Live Your Low-Carb Life With Style!"

It really is nice to have a wide selection of great low-carb products available at your fingertips. You will be completely amazed by the quality and unbelievable taste that these products have to offer. I have tried many of them myself and can personally testify that only stocks the best-tasting foods for your low-carb lifestyle. I promise you will not be disappointed!

As for Rev. Machado, he is telling everyone he knows why he's livin' la vida low-carb. He said it has improved his spiritual walk with God as well.

You heard it here first, folks! The low-carb lifestyle is good for your body AND your soul! :-)
