In The Great Carb Cutback, I quote from a 1958 book by Dr. Richard Mackarness entitled Eat Fat and Grow Slim. The whole book is a fascinating look at some of the early research into low carb, back when it wasn't even called low carb. The link below will take you to an online copy of Dr. Mackarness' book. You might notice, if you read it, that some of the material is a little dated (not surprising, being over 50 years old) and although the basic principles remain the same, some have been refined and improved over the years.

Easy Exercise

As I suggest in The Great Carb Cutback, simple walking is one of the best exercises you can do to complement your low carb lifestyle. If you would like to make that walking a lot more fun and a lot more extensive excercise, without much additional effort, click on the link below and check out Urban Poling

Urban Poling Nordic walking

The Activator Poles (below) are similar to the ones above, but they're designed for those with chronic conditions, those recovering from injuries as well as older adults who require more stability and balance when walking. You can access them from the regular Urban Poling site, but to go directly to the Activator page click below.
