The challenge that started it all

The challenge that started it all:

From Jimmy Moore's Blog
I have a new challenge to share with everyone today that I think will be quite an illuminating experience. As you know, I've been writing down my daily menus for nearly a year here at this blog to show what this particular low-carber actually eats on a daily basis. Some days have been better than others, but I have been quite transparent about what goes in my mouth and how much exercise I'm engaged in.

Today, I challenge YOU to do the same. That's right, I'm encouraging other low-carb dieters to be willing to share their daily menus online as well at their own menus blog. I'm going to start compiling a list of these low-carb menu sites on the side panel here so everyone can benefit from the variety of voices about what low-carb living means to different people. Are you brave enough to put your low-carb menus out there for everyone to see?

If you want to take this challenge, then simply e-mail me at with the URL of your new menus blog and I'll add it to my new list on the side panel. With so many people professing they know the best way to do a low-carb diet, it's time to see how you do it. This should be a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing how other low-carbers eat. List your portions, calories, and current weight each day so we can follow your progress.

Anyone up to the challenge? :)

So, my hesitancies are that to be "on plan" as I would hope to be if I'm open to scrutiny, I need to be organised. I will begin posting my menus on Tuesday (it is currently Saturday night and I'm tucking into some frozen raspberries in full cream. It's low carb, but still ... you know ...)


  1. Hi Erika! Lets rock and roll! We can totally do it. I for one am very excited. Havent been this excited for along while, at least about weight loss challenge. My favorite saying " If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change!

  2. I'm looking forward to checking out your menus, Erika.

    I think this is a fantastic challenge, set forth by Jimmy. I'll join in on the fun soon - with my own menu blog.

    In the meantime, I'll check back in on your blog this upcoming week. And, I'll do my best to offer encouragement and constructive commentary.

    Best of luck!


  3. Good Luck to you!

    I hope you are successful as I'd like to be!

    Take care,
