Adele Hite Adele Hite is the guest on this week’s episode of Dana’s Low-Carb For Life!

In episode 3, Dana discusses how to eat meat for cheap, rants about obsessing over “good carbs,” answers some listener’s emails and Facebook questions about low-carb bread and more, as well as presenting part one of a two-part interview with Dr. Eric Westman’s protege, Adele Hite. Don’t miss this one, folks!

ALSO, Here’s a bunch of listener feedback from FaceBook on the challenges we face:


Janis Inman Weekends….seems harder to stay with low carb when we are so involved with our family and not at home. When we are at home I can control what I eat…otherwise it’s a guessing game. Guess I need new strategies.

Maryanne Darner Outside activities, like parties. Sometimes there’s no suitable food, sometimes too many off diet treats.

Mary Titus Honestly, I have no problem with low carb at all. Even when it turns into a guessing game, I guess at what I believe is the lowest carb choice. That being said, the longer I am low carbing the less I go out to eat. The less I even want to …go out to eat. Now that I have had a chance to think more on this subject, there is one thing that makes low carbing difficult. It’s choosing what to have out of the plethora of yummy low carb choices.

Christine Unger Nowik Not many problems here, either, save the people who can’t seem to understand that “just one bite” WILL hurt.

Laurie Rosen Staying on track around my carb and sweets loving friends when I ski patrol up north. When I`m home I`m fine. I usually just try to do damage control when I`m up there.

Carolyn Cox Gorman Social situations are the most difficult times to resist carbs with cooking for grandkids coming second. When I was losing was very strict, but on maintence allow myself too much leeway-as a result 10 pounds to lose to get back to maintence weight.

    Hi Dana, Thanks for that post- I really enjoyed it. I just bought your book and am preparing myself for a low carb life. I am stocking my cupboards and getting ready for the week of withdrawals. I really think that having sugar-free chocolate on hand will keep me on track at the beginning. However, I can’t tolerate maltitol, which rules out many brands of sugar-free chocolate. I wonder how you feel about the sweetener oligofructose. I have read books that warn you to stay away from fructose like the plague but there are websites that say oligofructose (not sure if it is similar to fructose or just has a similar name) is good for the gut and helps with weight loss on a low carb lifestyle. I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks for all of your advice!

    Hi Dana,
    I just left you a message on your voicemail…if I sound like a moron, don’t use it! It made me nervous :)

    Is there a way to download this interview? I’m not finding the link. Also, I’ve tried to find them on iTunes to leave a review, but can’t find them there either. Thanks!

      Hi Amberly,

      I’ll check with our producer about the download link. We should be getting on iTunes after today’s (fourth) episode, and we’ll make an announcement when that’s ready. Thanks!

    I am loving your podcasts. They are very informational and inspirational. My favorite low carb convenience food is pre-cooked bacon; I buy several of the large bulk packages from Sam’s Club. And chuckle at the low-fat people really eye-balling my cart.

    Dana,
    Love your podcasts–listening to them is easier than sitting down to read the blog (no offense) when I’m so busy. I can put on the headset and clean or do laundry, and went through all four in no time! Just another request, since you are just starting this–could you put some notes in–you can then add links to websites you talk about. I am interested in finding those bread websites, but it’s hard to rewind and then write them down (and when you are busy while listening, not practical). Just a thought. Keep up the good work! I started Atkins in 2003, lost 75 lbs and have kept (most of) it off and continue to live the low-carb life, thanks to your cook books and the encouragement of the low carb community!

    I just left a message after the wrong podcast, #2. I should have used the latest to be sure it is seen. It’s about having trouble hearing the’cast. I have both volumes up all the way and still have trouble hearing.

    Hi Dana,
    I heard Marshall Brain talk on Brain Stuff about the European Diogenes diet. Please compare the various low carb diets. Are they essentially the same? Which one has the best components & information? Is low carb eating entering the mainstream?? Seems like heart MDs still go low carb low fat – but I don’t really know, I just have that assumption.
    Love to hear you!
    Karen
