A well-known low-carber in the community answers your questions about everything from nutrition to family issues, stress, and heck — even your love life. She's been the "go to gal" for awhile now when people need a little advice. And who is she? Well, we're not telling. She remains anonymous so that she can better give very frank advice. She doesn't pull any punches. You can remain anonymous too if you want — Just think "Dear Abby" — you know, signing off like "Harried in the Workplace" or "Desperate for Carbs in Detroit".

Dear Advice Lady,

Is spinach something I can have on this diet? I grew up believing Spinach was THE healthy thing to eat. (Yes, I had one of those mothers.) :) Is it good for a low carb diet or not?

Craving Greens

Spinach Dear Craving,

With his corncob pipe and his overdeveloped forearms, Popeye is hardly today's poster child of fitness, but his legendary food preference still makes a lot of sense. Spinach is loaded with iron and folate, a B vitamin now considered very important.

Folate not only prevents neural-tube defects in babies but also lowers blood levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that irritates blood vessels and is linked to heart disease. Just as impressive, spinach contains two phytochemicals, lutein and zeaxanthin, that seem to ward off macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness. One cup of spinach contains just 41 calories and 2 grams of carbohydrate (after fiber), so you needn't worry about any unsightly bulges in your forearms or anywhere else. Don't like spinach? Try kale, Swiss chard or collard greens.

A helpful note on equivalents: One pound fresh = 1 cup cooked = 5 ounces frozen.
