    I can't believe it. I am from Russia, now I live in US, and most of my friends and relatives in Russia have no idea what LCarbing is, but they are sure it can't be healthy.

    My aunt recently came to visit from Moscow. She ate like us and lost so much weight and felt so great, she brought the whole idea (and a bunch of books and recipes) back to Russia with her. Now everyone is on it and it's spread like a virus to their friends. My cousin is dealing with PCOS and this is the first time she's losing weight without the pain and agony of subsisting on rabbit food.

    I'll be sending them a link to that page. Thanks!

    Favourite line from the Russian blog so far:

    "You don't get fat from eating fatty foods just as you don't turn green from eating green foods".

    On one hand sure, it's nice to have a site like that. On the other hand, they immediately start out by claiming that Atkins is a high-protein diet which destroyed the kidneys of their multiple acquaintances.

    With friends like these you don't need enemies.

    There are those who can't taste fat that tend to eat more and gain weight

    Supersizers go the Restoration:

    The link works fine in Ireland.
    Could it be some "well meaning" US censorship that is disabling the link for you ?
    I will check with some US friends if same for them!

    Today it works, even though yesterday was a data transferring mistake - message about the problem was in Russian language.

    It's probably the American KGB putting a temporary block the site while the NSA rigs it to ensure each and every keystroke that happens and doesn't happen is captured in a database in case the U.S. Attorney General should one day find it convenient to convict you of a crime. "Oh, she said that fat won't kill you in order to encourage people eat fat and thus to commit suicide unintentionally and so she is a terrorist for whom habeas corpus (the right to challenge your arrest and incarceration) is suspended and she will be executed as soon as el presidente signs her death warrant. Does she prefer to be killed by firing squad or drone?"

    Thank goodness I am a product of the Soviet Union and long ago developed the ability to code my language so that this Enemy of The People (and I am an official Enemy of the People, pronounced so by the Soviet government) doesn't expose my innocent family to further harassment by the KGB/FBI/CIA/ Homeland Security or whatever name the Gestapo happens to be using now.

    I don't know when you left, Galina, but I'm sad to see the day come here in the USA.

    I left Russia at 1995, and I am a very small fish to fry, I hope.

    Small fish are the tastiest, Galina.

    Thanks for the source! It's very difficult for me to find good LCHF information for my Russian family and friends in Russia. Compared to the wealth of information available in English, in Russian there is almost none, and doctors seem to be pushing people more and more towards low-fat high-carb dogma.
