CARBOHYDRATE ADDICTION:

 

Q: WHERE CAN I GET ONGOING SUPPORT?



A. We have been blessed with the most passionate, enthusiastic, and loyal readers in this world...and the most supportive as well...willing to share their challenges, triumphs, and strategies for success with others. 

In the past, we had focused our energies on offering support to the ten thousand members of our CASupport group. Six hours a day of answering questions kept us pretty busy but the joy-filled reports of success and thanks we received and were more than worth it!

In time, as the demand for information became greater than we could ever hope to supply, when thousands of readers each day were being told that our support group was filled to capacity, independent support groups, blogs, forums, and chat rooms sprang up. Facebook and Twitter pages soon followed.

Some social networking sites offered excellent support and advice; others were from from accurate or dependable.


Today, there are millions of support groups, blogs, chats, Facebook and Twitter pages, other social venues that offer support to carbohydrate addicts!

Over 250.000 men and women visit this, our official website, each year. Most are seeking additional information on our books and our programs. In addition, many are hoping to find the support and encouragement that online forums, blogs, and other social networking sites can provide.

While we wish we could offer help to every visitor to this website, the sheer number of requests to which we would need to respond, does not make that possible. In the same way, the seemingly limitless number of social network venues for discussing our books, our programs, and low-carb or low-frequency-of-carb dieting, makes it impossible for us to offer recommendations regarding the "best" support group, blog, forum, or other social networking site.

Even the best Internet support venue, can change over time. The accuracy of its content can be degraded and new hidden agendas may influence its posts. In  addition, we have found that what is best for one carb addict is not necessarily the most appropriate for another. Recommendations of Internet support venues, therefore, are not possible.

We can offer, instead, some of our best strategies for finding the ideal Internet support sites to meet your individual (and changing) needs. As always, we caution you to check with your physician before changing your eating, exercise, or medication regimen.
