Tina Kaye's Story - www.carbsmart.com/tinakaye.html
www.3fatchicks.com (too many ads)
(3fatchicks is not technically a low-carb-exclusive site. It is really a very information-dense
support site for people who need to lose weight -- but it has a lot of low-carb info.
The 3 women who started it do not seem to have any agenda and are not pushing any particular program.
They seem to beat the bushes for any responsible information on anything that works for weight loss.
Since they get most of their information from mainstream sources, like the "Physicians Desk Reference"
and www.WebMD.com, you will not find cutting-edge stuff here, but it is generally reliable and honest.
The site features decent summaries of many low-carb diets, as well as low-fat diets. The site also provides
latest health news, news archives, a low-fat recipe section and a low-carb recipe section, a plus-size
shop, online journals, and a good web links section, with especially good links in the area of obesity.
There are also diet tools, such as a BMI [= Body Mass Index] calculator, and a calculator for calories burned
by walking various distances at various intensities. It also has forums where readers can
post questions, comments, and tips.)
