CalorieLab Highlights Two Low-Carb Bloggers

There are all sorts of web sites on the Internet today that are centered around the subject of diet and health. If you've ever done a Google search on those terms, then you know what I'm talking about. But I want to tell you about a web site you will DEFINITELY want to become more familiar with if you like to track the nutritional info about the foods you are eating (and if you don't like to do this, then now's the time to START!).

It's called CalorieLab and features various news and information about calories to educate people who are interested in both the calories consumed and the calories burned.

In fact, here's a search box for you to use to find the nutritional information about any food product you are interested in. Go ahead, give it a try for yourself and see what you find:That's a pretty neat little gizmo, eh? I thought it was and could literally spend hours typing in all kinds of foods to see not just the calories, but the other important nutritional info including carbohydrates. :D

In their News section this week, I noticed an article they posted at CalorieLab entitled "Low-carb blogging is contagious" which obviously piqued my interest since I am a low-carb blogger. Well, lo and behold, it was an article about ME and MY BLOG as well as my friend Low-Carb Dave and his popular low-carb blog. This was a TOTAL surprise because they didn't let me know they were doing this.

Here's how they opened the story they wrote:

"Low-carb living is popular but controversial. The bloggers showcased today have found success, motivation, and passion through living a low-carb lifestyle. In turn, they use that passion to help motivate others while attempting to dispel myths about the low-carb diet.

Then they write a very flattering feature about my "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog and my book as well.

"People looking for low-carb information will find a bountiful supply of facts and figures, along with information on fellow low-carb bloggers."

When they talked about Low-Carb Dave, they discuss his 100-pound weight loss success following the low-carb lifestyle and that he uses his blog to track his journey to try to reach "the hearts and minds of fellow bloggers and dieters by describing success on the Atkins-style diet."

CalorieLab added that low-carb blogging "seems contagious" and notes that Dave was inspired by my blog. What an AWESOME story and I'm thrilled to see the continuing impact that my weight loss and blog have made on so many people. Many of those blogs you see listed among my "Blog Friends" to the right are from people who have started livin' la vida low-carb and using the blogging format to help keep them accountable.

What a joy it is to blog about something as incredible and lifechanging as the low-carb lifestyle! So many of you have been inspired to start losing weight and even blogging about it because of my current "30-In-30" Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge. Way to go and keep up the great work with your weight loss and frequent blog updates. We will continue to show them that low-carb is here to stay forever and ever, baby!

Special thanks again to CalorieLab for their fantastic feature story. Click here to leave a comment at their blog on behalf of me and Dave for their mention of our blogs. THANKS!
