Those of you that know me and specifically have eaten out with me recently know that I am a low-to-no carb guy nowadays. In fact for nearly a year I haven’t had any bread (outside of communion and when I had no choice). I found the Ideal Protein diet to be one that really worked well for me and it provided me with a lot of guidance around how to avoid the carbs I have LOVED for years (pastas, breads, cereal, etc.). While I haven’t technically been on the diet for a few months, I still adhere to the low-to-no carb philosophy and put together this list of 35 articles/blogs that may help make the low carb lifestyle easier for my friends, family and readers to get behind.
