Andrew DiMino from CarbSmart wants to be an example to his customers
When someone needs to lose weight, sometimes all they are looking for is an epiphany moment to happen to get them headed down the straight and narrow road.
But when you are the owner of a popular online retail store that sells "diet food" products, you wouldn't think that a weight problem would be an issue. However, for Andrew DiMino from the sugar-free, low-carb store CarbSmart.com, he has ignored his weight problem for far too long since first losing weight by livin' la vida low-carb nearly a decade ago and is now determined to finally do something about it.
DiMino e-mailed me on Wednesday after reading about my "30-In-30" Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge and I could quickly sense that he was ready to get back to being serious about livin' la vida low-carb.
"I wanted you to know that like many people, I have slowly let the weight creep up on me even though I fully understand and profess the low-carb lifestyle," DiMino said. "Starting on August 1, I went back on the Induction phase of low-carb and will be working towards a minimum of 30 pounds lost in the next 30 weeks. I encourage your readers to use this challenge as a way to reinvigorate their commitment to living a healthy lifestyle."
DiMino said he will keep track of his progress with a weight loss journal (something I HIGHLY recommend!) and will weigh himself on a regular basis to make sure he is headed in the right direction.
In fact, he is so excited about this "30-In-30" Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge that he has created a special "30-In-30" Challenge section on his CarbSmart web site.
"I will be listing only the products with the lowest carb counts," DiMino explained regarding the new section. "And none of the products listed will have sugar alcohols in them so any 'net carb' counts will be total carbs minus the fiber only. If anything has sugar alcohols, it will be very minimal (for example, the sugar-free gums and mints)."
DiMino is quick to point out that using "low-carb" products is not necessary if you want to lose weight when you are livin' la vida low-carb, but that they can be helpful to many people who desire some "comfort food" from time to time.
"Only add them into your routine if they fit into your current stage of your low-carb plan," he explained. "Read the nutritional labels because some low-carb foods have higher carb counts than others."
In addition to the "30-In-30" Challenge section at his web site, DiMino is also offering a new coupon code for people to use on getting some products to "help jumpstart the process" of losing weight for them.
Enter "GO30IN30" at the checkout and you will receive 10 PERCENT OFF of any order over $30 (not including shipping). That's a great deal to get you going on the "30-In-30" Challenge.
As he begins this renewed commitment to the low-carb lifestyle, DiMino has one bit of advice to share with his fellow "30-In-30" Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge participants who have been on a low-carb diet in the past.
"I encourage everyone to re-read the low-carb books again," DiMino stated.
The excitement surrounding the "30-In-30" Challenge is building more and more every single day and I am so happy to see people on every level of weight loss getting involved to get serious about their weight and their health. Isn't that what livin' la vida low-carb is all about?! :)
Remember, I'm happy to assist you in any way that I can during this process, so don't hesitate to drop me an e-mail with your questions, comments or feedback!
