Low Carb Luxury offers a Special Feature called "Meet The Merchant" that allows you, the reader (and shopper) to get
a better "look" at the merchants we all deal with. There's a nice "comfort level" that comes with knowing something
about the merchant to whom you trust your shopping needs.
This issue features the Low Carb Nexus, and

of The Low Carb Nexus
"None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm."
— Henry David Thoreau
Dr. Bill Bailey started a low carb diet after desperately trying low fat
dieting, working with a nutritionist, continuous fasting, and many other
extreme ways to lose weight. He had been told by his doctor that it was a
"life and death" matter for him at 500 lbs. and 72 inches in the waist!
The "last straw" was being diagnosed with Sleep Apnea because his 24 inch
neck was cutting off his air supply at night! His wife, Belinda, had read
Dr. Atkins' book and encouraged him to try low carbing, as she had. Bill
felt that he had "nothing to lose but weight" and gave it a try. The
first week he lost 20 lbs.... and since that time has lost over 160 lbs.
He feels better than he has in 20 years and is now a "fanatical" supporter
of the low carb lifestyle!
"Doing the diet" for he and Belinda led them to experiment with many
flours and proteins, as they found Dr. Atkin's Bake Mix unacceptable.
So... after much mixing and experimenting, Bake*Lite Flour
was born in 1999!
Since he was a computer systems engineer and web
designer, Dr. Bill put up a "quick and dirty" web site, hosted from his
home, to sell the flour. One product, sold from their dining room in
their house has grown to a full 3600 sq. ft. retail store with hundreds of
low carb, sugar free products, and a desire to serve the low carb
Now, the web site, running on a web server located at their store, has been
re-vamped and includes a user forum, articles, a site search engine and many
The retail store, advertised locally in the High Point, North Carolina area on TV and
radio is constantly busy... as are Bill, Belinda and their staff! They
even have Low Carb, Sugar-free Soft Serve Ice Cream... (which local
customers say they "can't live without!")
It has been a long, but exciting, road for the Baileys and their staff at
the Low Carb Nexus, and they are very serious about their commitment to
the community and the support their store offers.
Dr. Bill, who has a Ph.D. in Theology, will finish his second doctorate in Naturopathy later
this year. His studies in Natural Health stem directly from his change in
lifestyle on the low carb way of life and he is confident that his studies
will support his efforts to be a benefit to the low carb community.
The Baileys see a bright future for low carbers, since there is an
increasing interest in developing low carb products by food
manufacturers... and they will be there to offer the community those
products and services!
