Site-Seeing with Jan Perry
Usually the e-mail I get suggests a topic for the column or asks for help in finding sites about a particular subject. This time, Diana Bauer (author of ''Celebrate Low Carb'' and the editor of CarbSmart.com) sent in so many good sites and descriptions I decided to let her guest-write today's column. The Green Township resident invites anyone with questions to contact her at Di@CarbSmart.com.
http://www.carbsmart.com.. CarbSmart, the online low-carb store for which I am the editor, offers a large selection of low-carbohydrate products.
http://www.lowcarb.org. The best all-around noncommercial low-carbohydrate site is The Lowcarb Retreat. The site author, Lee Rogers, is a veteran low-carber. Lee offers links for those people suffering from fibromyalgia, candida, multiple sclerosis, thyroid diseases, obstructive sleep apnea, hypoglycemia, scleroderma and other diseases and disorders.
http://www.immuneweb.org/lowcarb.. For vegetarians and those suffering from autoimmune diseases, Cyndi Norman's site is wonderful. Cyndi suffers from some auto-immune diseases, extreme chemical sensitivity, and has a number of allergies.
http://www.panix.com/~paleodiet. Another good page for allergy sufferers and those with a variety of auto-immune diseases and disorders is the Paleolithic Diet Page (known as the Caveman Diet or Hunter/Gatherer Diet). The site author, Ray Audette, cured his rheumatoid arthritis and has completely controlled his diabetes through this much stricter version of low-carbohydrate dieting. He is the author of ''Neanderthin'' and was recently featured on ABC's ''20/20.''
http://www.diabetes-normalsugars.com.. Low-carbohydrate eating can be of amazing benefit to diabetics. I have spoken to hundreds who have been able to reduce their medications or stop their insulin injections entirely through low-carbohydrate eating. (All this is done under a doctor's supervision, of course.) This site has wonderful information. The author, Dr. Richard K. Bernstein, is himself a diabetic.
http://www.carb-lite.au.com.. A new low-carbohydrate recipe site, Carb-Lite, just came on line and has a large selection of recipes. Tony Blakemore, the site author, is known as ''The Aussie Gourmet.''
http://www.atkinscenter.com.. Dr. Robert C. Atkins wrote the book (literally) on this topic years before anyone else.
