    If you look under Health and Wellness, there is a section for diets and dieting. We have several low carb threads there that we can write in, and it would be fine to post any recipes in a new thread there, or in the recipe section, under the food topic.
    I have been doing low carb for quite a while, and have now added in IF (intermittent fasting) for the extra health and longevity benefits you get from fasting a while each day.
    I also belong to an OMAD forum (one meal a day), and it is a good place to write about meals and low carb, because a lot of people on IF also do keto/low carb.
    If you want to check it out, it is omaddiet.com . It is a small forum, and needs more active people !

    OK.....
    Whatever...
    One meal a day isn't for me personally.......
    Fasting isn't for me either...

    I am on Atkins and have been for several years.. Lost the weight and am now on maintenance as I have reached my goal years ago...

    I just thought it would be a help for those that could need some encouragement in maintaining a Low Carb way of life..
    Some advice as well.... As far as recipes, goes, I have sites that have literally hundreds of low carb recipes..
    Daily posting of your food not only keeps you honest but gives others ideas.. it also allows for corrections in the low carb..

    Whatever the others want, I will go along with...

    I agree with you Steve, one meal a day , nor fasting would be good for me... . I have a condition which means I have to eat little and often, but I really need to lose weight.. so I though a low carb diet would be a good way to go, so I'm happy to follow any to see how that goes...

    Holly...
    At our age, either we take all kinds of medication, or we have all kinds of conditions that require us to follow a strict way of eating to accommodate us..
    Now, the fact we MUST eat doesn't mean we have to eat the wrong foods.. The options are there for us to go about our day eating properly, which means eliminating certain foods and incorporating other foods..
    Help, guidance, advice, encouragement and just plain ideas are essential for any food plan to work properly..
    Low Carb isn't a diet... it is a way of life... Those fad diets don't work while food plans do work..

    Whatever the outcome as far as us opening up a Low Carb division on here goes, I will go along with any decision made on here....
    Personally, I know we should have our own site (or a site) dealing exclusively with low carbing.. Yes, we can open up a new topic somewhere, but where would be the proper place where we can discuss our daily progress.. We would need a thread for ....
    What are we eating today ................... to have an idea as to what you are eating and if it is proper..
    Problems and complications ............. for those that have questions or are finding it somewhat hard or different and need help..
    Goals and achievements .....................for those that want to keep tract of their progress and monitor their loss..

    Just to name a few .......

    Ken has already said, from your other post about starting an area for this that he is fine with it, and to just use the diet section of the forum, and then start whichever threads we want to start. The ones you listed above are good options, and if you want me to start those threads, i can do it, or you can do it, it is the same either way, @Steve North .
    We already have some low-carb threads started there, and so all we have to do is add the new ones as we want them.

    Steve, I have also asked Ken if he can create a special section for low carb. If he does that, then we can add your threads under that, and if not, then we will just have them under the diet section, and we can write in those threads, just like people do for “what did you have for supper” threads, and add new threads as needed.

    I never think to look in the Health and Wellness section. The only way I would see it is if somebody bumps it back to the top.

    I have been outside yesterday and today working. The weather has been glorious. I have pruned my blueberry bushes and my blackberry bushes. There was a vine growing my cherry tree that had to be cut out. Now I only have to prune my rose bush and clean my martin gourds, then I'll be caught up outside for right now.

    I was going to play some of the games but I just had drop in company. I might be back later to play.

    Under the health and wellness section is one called diets and dieting, and that is where Ken wants us to put any low carb diet threads, @Shirley Martin.
    If people are posting there every day about new recipe ideas, or even just what we are having for our meal, then it should always show up in the new posts section, and probably on likes and such, too.
    Once there are more threads there, and Ken sees that people are interested, then we can probably ask him again for a special area for the low carb diets. We just have to work with what is available at this point.

    No problem for that..
    The "what are we eating" thread that is there now is absolutely NO GOOD as it isn't strictly low carb.. I will be starting a NEW one which will be for us to compare our daily Low Carb food intake....

    Looks like it should of been placed into ...... diets and dieting.....
    How about a sub-section of diets and dieting.. Not to be confused with the ongoing threads but to have our separate area...

    I can't move it now .....
