          Low Carb back in the News!
Many of you remember a young science author named Gary Taubes, who endeared himself to low carbers everywhere last year when he penned an article called The Soft Science of Dietary Fat for Science magazine's March 30, 2001 issue (here's a PDF version.)

He took a serious look at the dubious "science" that says fat is bad. He received a 2001 Science in Society Journalism Award for this amazing article.

This week he renewed his hero-status with me (and countless others) when his story, What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie? was published, continuing his exploration of the dietary wrongs of the U.S. (and elsewhere.) [If you don't have a New York Times online account, and don't want to sign up, you can also read it here at]

Gary Taubes Then on Monday, he appeared on CNN with Paula Zahn to further explain. Since then, he's guested on numerous radio and TV spots and the news is traveling fast. Here's an article from The Connection (which aired on NPR.) And here's the Transcript of Gary's appearance on CNN.

You can read more about Gary in his biography. For more than 20 years his science writing has appeared in such journals as Discover, Nature, The New York Times, Playboy, The Washington Post, and Forbes.  Gary, you're my hero!

      Product of thr Month

Our product review team will feature 2 (two) "Products Of The Month" one in each issue of our newsletter. These products will be the group consensus of those we find to be the most innovative, tasty, or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Keto Ketchup Keto Ketchup

    "You shake and shake
    the ketchup bottle ...
    None will come
    and then a lot'll"

(Ten points to those who know where that little gem comes from.) It's appropriate for our reviewed product this time — low carb
KETO Ketchup. Thicker than most commercial ketchups (yet not "clumpy" or too thick), spiced just right, and sweetened with Splenda. At only 1 gram of carbohydrate per serving, it's now our very favorite ketchup.

No need for a lengthy review... of all the sugarless and low carb ketchups we've tried, this is the one. This one is hands down the best. We hope they'll switch to a squeeze plastic bottle someday, though. The glass is classy, but let's just say that someone in my household is a "dropper". :)

Available in 13.5 oz bottles. You can get them from
Life Services, The Low Carb Connoisseur, and Synergy Diet.
