What would you say to the USDA? Low-carbers speak out.
If you had the chance to modify the dietary recommendations for Americans and really target weight loss, what would you say?
Specifically, for those who have experience with a low-carbohydrate lifestyle in any level or intensity, what thoughts would you share with the people who write the dietary recommendations? How would you help the "experts" write the dietary recommendations so others could follow a low-carb lifestyle successfully?
The reason I ask is because the Nutrition and Metabolism Society is looking for as many of these recommendations and experiences possible in order to publish them in a scientific publication and share them with the 2010 dietary guidelines panel of experts.
The hope is to help them come up with dietary guidelines that will help people looking for recommendations when following a low-carbohydrate diet.
If you have anything to share, please post your reply here in the comments. I will share these with the NMS Society and your voice will be heard.
