Kicking the Carb Craving

Everyone gets food cravings, whether you are watching your weight or otherwise. These cravings are often for carbohydrates, as they are often the quickest way to get the densest number of calories into your body. When you aren’t eating low-carb, they are your body’s preferred fuel source, so you’re practically hardwired to crave carbohydrates. [...]

Sweeten Things Up!

But once you’ve cut these things out of your diet, you’re inevitably still going to want to indulge in something sweet. You’re [...]

How Low-Carb Works

First and foremost, I am a chef, not a doctor, nutritionist, or scientist. My experiments are with ingredients, not test tubes. You wouldn’t want a doctor writing recipes (many have), but you should consult a doctor or nutritionist before making changes to the way you eat. You should also understand that my explanation of how [...]

Motivation & Inspiration

An Essential Change Fifteen years ago, the scene around the Stella family dinner table looked bleak. There was usually a stack of pizza boxes. Empty soda cans and bottles were thrown into a recycling bin between our feet. Then there was us…all twelve hundred-plus pounds of us. George Stella at 467lbs in 1999 [...]

The Different Low-Carb Plans

You’ve probably heard of several low-carb plans over the years, such as Atkins or Paleo.

Because of this, I have chosen to write all my recipes using only [...]

Low Carb on a Budget

There’s no denying that food prices are going up, up and up.  In the short term, it’s devastating many a grocery budget.  In the long term, there’s no telling the impact this can have on our overall health.  More and more families are being pushed into low priced and high calorie convenience (junk) food just [...]

The Good, the Bad and the Carbohydrate

By now, I am sure that you’ve heard that all carbohydrates are not created equal. The swiftly digested—refined, processed, smashed, bleached, manufactured and who knows what else—“white” carbs have little nutritional value and turn straight into sugar, then fat in your body. These bad carbs are things like white flour, white rice, potatoes, sugar and [...]
