Meet Australian attorney and low-fat cook Jeff aka "The Skinny Chef"
You never know whose path you are going to cross out in the wonderful world of blogdom, but today "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" was graced with the presence of someone who calls himself Jeff "The Skinny Chef". This Aussie native (just like my friend Duncan Margetts) left the following comments on my blog this morning:
"Dude, I love your blog. It is good to see a person who knows so much about low carb diets. I've included a link to your blog in mine, as I have been briefly touching on that topic. Cheers."
After that kind greeting, I decided to check out Jeff's blog called (what else!) The Skinny Chef's Blog. In a blog post about livin' la vida low-carb entitled "Low Carb Proponents Strike Back!", Jeff said he is not personally opposed to low-carb plans and would be "willing to give it a go as a diet booster." This is an interesting comment, especially considering his blog is considered the "blog voice of www.Delicious-Low-Fat-Recipes.com," where he creates low-fat recipes that are "so delicious ... you won't believe they're good for you!" I wonder if they are as good as the low-carb recipes over at Kalyn's Kitchen. :-)
Anyway, Jeff has been discussing the subject of low-carb lately despite receiving some criticism from his low-fat fans who do not care a bit in the world about low-carb. Nevertheless, Jeff has kept an open mind about the low-carb lifestyle and even included a link to this blog post I wrote recently which included some of the "misconceptions" or LIES as I refer to them about low-carb.
However, Jeff may have noted the wrong article because this one only lists 2 of those lies, not 10 as he notes at his blog. In looking through my other recent articles, here is one of my blog posts that lists 9 lies about the Atkins diet and another one where I explain my top 10 reasons why I don't do a low-fat diet. But this subject is in just about everything I write, so look around a while and you'll see what I think about the negative publicity that low-carb receives on virtually a daily basis.
I am very appreciative that Jeff has enjoyed looking around at "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" and welcome the feedback of his readers about what I write here. Jeff said he finds my blog "refreshing" for people who are "sick of reading negative stuff about low carb diets." Thank you, sir! I count it a privilege to do what I do each and every day.
Who said people who support low-carb can't get along with people who support low-fat? Aren't we all in the business of trying to help people lose weight no matter how they do it? That's my philosophy and I fully support anyone taking that all-important first step to doing something constructive if they are overweight or obese.
If the low-fat lovin' "Skinny Chef" gets it, then why can't the media and health experts figure it out, too?! Be sure to tell Jeff that "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man" said hello when you visit his web site. If you need a word of encouragement, then feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
