I'm a mom who has lost over 50 pounds practicing the low-carb lifestyle.
My name is Katherine Prouty, and I have been in special interest web publishing for a long time. I have created and delivered a lot of products where the audience is crucial in creating the content. These sites are the culmination of my previous experience. Right now I have two of them, www.LowCarbFreedom.com and www.ParentPundit.com.
About Low Carb Freedom:
It is a site where I hope to help overweight adults and kids by giving them low-carb alternatives that can work long term.
Having done the low-carb lifestyle for over a year, given numerous "talks" to my local church and other interested families, there are a few things that are critical to long-term success: knowing what to shop for and knowing where to get the right food so it is ALWAYS available -- including the glove compartment of your car. I have started this site with my local grocery chains and a few key "must-have" products. I hope to expand so it is relevant across the US. Som stores like Costco, BJs and Trader Joe's do have a wide reach.
I am not a doctor. I am not a nutritionist. DO NOT start a diet without talking to your doctor first, reading books and research reports, and making your own decisions based on all available information.
I am a reader. I have made my own decisions based on available information and by trying the low-carb lifestyle. This site reflects my own opinions and nothing more. This site is what I would tell my daughter. (In other words, don't try to sue me for letting you into my thoughts.)
On the other hand, I expect my opinions will change over time. I expect my readers will educate me. I expect other bloggers to note my inevitable mistakes. I expect research to refine accepted dietary practice.
I hope that the nutritional establishment will meet the same challenge that the journalism establishment is now meeting with bloggers -- and that both establishments will be better for it.
A word about advertising:
I have joined with several affiliate programs in order to get revenue to run this site. I also intend to take advertisements. However, I will always give you, the reader, all options so you can make your own decisions. (And I am interested in hearing about those decisions.)
I'm just starting! More to come!
