I've really been struggling lately.

I can't get my heart and head to agree on anything.

My head wants to keep my 4 blogs and widen each niche just a little bit, so I can pull myself up out of the writer's block that I've fallen into.

And my heart?

Eliminating most carbohydrates from your diet isn't as easy as it looks. In fact, for most people, the sense of “loss” that cutting carbs brings can be quite shocking to the nervous system.

Yes, you get to eat many of the foods that are outlawed on low-calorie diets; but for many, eating:
  • meat
  • eggs
  • cheese
  • salads
  • vegetables
  • nuts
  • berries
  • and healthy fats
is not enough of a trade off to avoid feeling deprived and victimized. Especially, if others in your immediate environment are eating some of your favorite foods in front of you.

Growing and caring for herbs is new for me, so I can't just create a beginner's guide that tells you everything you need to know about growing herbs – all at once.

Instead, I'm going to create a series of posts, as I learn about caring for these culinary delights.

Yesterday, I decided to cook a pot roast since they were on sale at Albertson's for 2.49 a pound. We like Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning and rosemary on our steaks, so I decided to do the same thing to the beef chuck roast.

Since I didn't quite know how to snip the rosemary off the herb growing outside, I had to do a little research on how to cut herbs for cooking; and I am so glad that I did.

I honestly would have done it wrong!

My outdoor herb garden

I'm growing herbs in pots this year.

I think that having fresh herbs to season our meat will be a wonderful addition to our gluten-free meals.

A few months ago we bought a house.

Our plan was to put in a few raised-beds for fresh vegetables this month.

Unfortunately, we recently discovered that we have no water in the backyard. The faucet in the extended portion where we want to put the garden has only a drizzle of water coming out, and the faucet up next to the house has no water at all.

Are you willing to pay the consequences
for an extended Atkins Induction?

There seems to be a lot of focus on the state of Nutritional Ketosis these days, with many people asking the same questions:
  • Am I in ketosis?
  • How many carbs does it take to get thrown out of ketosis?
  • What should I do if the Ketostix aren't showing that I'm in ketosis anymore?
  • I'm only eating 20 carbs, why am I not in ketosis?
  • Is it safe to stay in ketosis indefinitely?
And while some of these questions are certainly important -- like just how safe of a diet is the Atkins Diet long-term -- overall, it seems that the low-carb community is putting too much emphasis on the state of ketosis and not enough focus on the consequences for staying in Induction too long.

Dr. Atkins Had Something Very Different
to Say about Fat

Drop into any low-carb forum or egroup and you'll soon hear the Atkins Diet described as being a high-fat diet. But the truth of that description depends on who you ask, and who you want to believe.

Those who are entering the diet for the first time do find a great metabolic advantage, initially, while the body discovers and learns how to use an alternative metabolic pathway it hasn't used before.

In the process, it does exactly what Dr. Atkins claimed:

Sneaks calories out of the body through incompletely burned ketones, a by-product of the breakdown of triglyceride into fatty acids and glycerol in the liver.
