In this edition of A Closer Look: “Carb-Loving Cuisine,” co-authors Ellen Kunes and Frances Largeman-Roth share these delicious, carb-rich recipes: Cherry-Ginger Scones, Grilled Burger & Three-Bean Salad, Mediterranean Pasta Salad, and Raspberries with Chocolate Yogurt Mousse.

I listened to the show tonight about the negative things regarding acarb-loving diet. I have to respectably disagree with what was said from my personal experience and that of many friends and relatives. I started living the low carb lifestyle about 7 years ago. It is NOT a diet but a way of life that if healthy and gives you so much energy. Your body starts to burn fat immediately on this diet. I heard it said tonight that the Low Carb "Diet" does not keep weight off and other negative things about it. I feel very strongly about this. I lost over 50 lbs and 50 inches before my 50th birthday. I went from a size 16 to a size 8 and I have stayed there. It is very easy to do and I AM full all the time. You should ask my husband I eat all the time. I do NOT eat the bun on my burger... and I heard it said tonight how can you enjoy a burger without the bun? I will tell you how... wrap it in lettuce and it is delicious. I do occasionally eat a low carb wrap or bread when I feel like it. I eat salads and cheeses and vegies and all the meats I want. And fruits and nuts, etc. All of my favorite foods and many foods. I do not miss out on anything on this diet. If I feel like desert there are plenty of sugar free candies, cookies and sweets out there ....even ice cream. Of course since I am at my goal weight and have stayed here for about 6 years now... I can have that special food in moderation if I desire it now and then. But living a low carb life style tends to decrease any cravings for those things very quickly. I had to voice my opinion about what was said. Low Carb Eating IS healthy and IT WORKS. Many friends and family members have done what I have done. I never felt better than I did after I started this lifestyle and how I feel now. I am never hungry and always eat the foods I love...and lots of them. Thanks for hearing me.
