Yeah, that's not really low-carb, maltitol is actually a pretty high-carb, caloric sweetener and is only slightly better normal sugar. Maltitol is a sneaky way to pass a carb for a sugar alcohol (since it is half sugar alcohol, half... (more)

Most greens freeze reasonably well. Spinach may be one of the least suitable due to the meatiness of is leaves. If you have freezer space it is worth buying at peak, stuff into large ziploc bags, and freeze. I freeze celery greens, daikon greens,... (more)

I was allergic to eggs big time. Found out it was what the chickens were eating. Soy. Almost all chickens are fed a vegetarian diet of soy. Even the free-range chickens are given supplemental feed. Soy free egg = no egg allergy.

The general answer is that there's no limit on how much fat you can eat. If you eat the diet for a while you'll basically self-regulate yourself. When I first started I had rib-eye steak all the time.  But after a while I got sick of it and... (more)

No.  There is no difference between "natural" and unnatural sugars, and in fact complex vs simple sugars.  Your digestive system breaks them all down to sugar.  Doesn't matter if you eat a bowl of sugar or a bowl of pasta. ... (more)
