As I relate in the book, My Big Fat Diet, a documentary broadcast on CBC Television, is what got me started on my journey into the world of low carb. Below are links to websites relating to the show, including one to the blog of the man behind the program, Dr. Jay Wortman.

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

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.

 Low Carb Groceries

If you're having trouble finding low carb products in Canada, I recommend The Low Carb Grocery. They are located in Toronto, but have incredibly good shipping rates for all of Canada. Click on the image below to open another window at their website.
