Weight Loss Web Site With A 'Godfather' Flair
Jimmy Moore
August 23, 2005

The following is a reprint from my new blog called "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb":

Have you ever wondered what a discussion board about healthy eating would look like if someone from The Sopranos or The Godfather did it? Well, fuhgeddaboutit because it's already been done in a web site called LowCarboNostra.com!

The brainchild of Galatea DeLapp, who just happens to follow the Atkins W.O.E. (that's "way of eating"), LowCarboNostra.com is a place for low-carb or low-fat dieters to come and discuss the issues they have with their lifestyle choice in a humorous way to help relieve the stress that can be associated with losing weight.

If you are looking for a support group to help "cheer you on...and cheer you up," then bada boom, bada bing LowCarboNostra.com may be just the place to check out for yourself. Of course, that's what I do at my "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog for people following a low-carb program, but it'll be nice to check out what the mobsters over at LowCarboNostra.com are up to from time to time.

The Don of this joint DeLapp shares his personal philosophy about the weight loss plan that helped him lose 70 pounds.

“Low-carb has had its ups and downs in the past few years,but it is a safe and easy way to lose weight for many dieters - especially for life-long yo-yo dieters and the seriously obese.”

YOU GO BOY! Tell the truth unashamed so everyone will know that low-carb is anything but a fading fad as the media would have us believe. For many of the nearly 30 million people following a low-carb lifestyle, this is our way of life from now until our time on earth is no more. It is something the media and health "experts" are going to have to come to grips with sooner or later.

For those people who like to watch their caloric and fat intake, DeLapp said LowCarboNostra.com is a great place for them, too!

“Many people at our site are also having great success following lower calorie plans like Weight Watchers - we have an equal mix of low carb dieters and low calorie/low fat dieters. We support all plans.”

Yeah, they support all weight loss methods which I think is absolutely wonderful. But isn't it interesting that the URL contains "low-carb" and not "low-fat" or "low-cal?" Hmmm. Regardless, this bulletin board at LowCarboNostra.com provides a festive place for discussing and sharing your weight loss experiences.

Be sure to check out the "Witness Protectin Program," aka before and after pictures. There is also a recipe section (of course, not as good as Kalyn's recipes), research articles on diets, exercise, food, and other weight loss topics of interest. You need to register with LowCarboNostra.com to participate in the discussions.

Commenting that his membership is smaller than some of the other diet discussion bulletin boards out there, DeLapp said he likes to make it more personal with the people who join his group since negative emotions have led many people to make poor choices about eating in the past. That's why there is a "Boom Boom Room" for people to come laugh about life, but also share intimately about what they are feeling deep inside while trying to drop excess pounds.

I guess you could say the members of LowCarboNostra.com are one big happy family, participating in activities with each other including birthdays, new babies, and even donating to a worthy cause. A current weight loss challenge involves sending $1.00 for every pound lost to help purchase a cow for an African family to eat through an organization called Heifer International. You certainly don't see things like this happening at most of the diet bulletin boards across the Internet.

DeLapp concluded: “It's a unique atmosphere. We're like a family – which is why we chose the Godfather theme. We came together through our choice of diet, but have bonded well beyond that. There's more to life than losing weight … and we have the best of both worlds at LowCarboNostra.com.”

Check out LowCarboNostra.com today and tell them "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man" sent you. And be sure you come back here when you're done doing that thing you are gonna do with 'dem. Don't make me put out a hit on you! LOL!
