Coincide Publishing Closes Door On Remaining Remnants Of Low-Carb Magazine
Jimmy Moore
June 18, 2006

The following is a reprint from the blog "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb":
Okay, now I'm REALLY bummed out.

I just got word today from a representative at Coincide Publishing that they have decided to drop SheKnows LowCarb (which we already knew about) as well as SheKnows Diet & Fitness which was going to feature my column "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb."

When they changed the name of LowCarb Energy magazine toSheKnows LowCarb in January 2006, I should have known something was up. But I held out hope that they would still keep the low-carb message alive since a survey of the magazine subscribers showed they still adhere to livin' la vida low-carb. I guess it just wasn't enough.

So, my hopes to write for a national health and diet magazine have been dashed that quickly. Bummer. I guess now I'm happy I got this article in SheKnows LowCarb before they went away forever. And what's really bad is I had already written and submitted TWO columns for Diet & Fitnessmagazine to be featured this Fall. Shoot! All that work for nothing.

The Coincide representative said she regretted to inform me that they have indeed "ceased publication" on the magazines and noted that it was a "difficult decision" for them to make.

"But [the decision was] one our small company just had to make at this point," the representative stated.

I'm feeling kinda Bon Jovi right now since I've been "shot down in a blaze of glory." :( Oh well, I've still all you guys to write columns for at my blog, right? Of course, if there are any other magazines out there looking for someone to write about low-carb living, then I think I might know somebody who could step right into that role. :D

I would like to personally thank my editors during my brief stint with the SheKnows family -- Jen Wolfe and Karen Rysavy. They first noticed my writing last year when they named my blog one of the top 3 low-carb blogs of 2005. That was such an honor and I will never forget their belief in me for what I am attempting to do to help others with their weight problems.

It's just such a shame that people who still believe in the low-carb lifestyle strongly (can you tell I'm one of them?!) don't have a greater outlet for dispersing our thoughts and ideas to the masses. Sure, we have our blogs and web sites, but those can only reach just so many people. There has to be investors out there who are willing to see solid information and commentary regarding the low-carb lifestyle be distributed to a world where two out of every three people are overweight or obese and one in three are diabetic or pre-diabetic.

Will any of them be willing to put their money where their mouth is and support those individuals who still desire to bring the REAL low-carb lifestyle to the mainstream of society? Anyone?
