In the New Blog You Read How to Eat Well Without the Carbs

Delicious Low Carb is a personal blog that shares information about the low-carb lifestyle. It focuses on recipes for low-carb or no-carb versions of traditional favorites.

Offenbach, Germany, October 25, 2012 --( Every diet requires you to give something up, whether it’s fat, meat, sweets, or just the feeling of being full. It’s worse if you always have to eat the same thing. Even if a weight-loss shake comes in 27 flavors, it will start to get old after the third. And so the diet is doomed to cravings, cheating, and failure. The unhappy dieters end up weighing more than they did to start with - the infamous yo-yo effect.

If somebody sticks to his diet for 24 months, it must be something special. Either he’s a glutton for punishment, or he’s found a way around the problem of giving things up. The latter is true for German blogger Daniel Schaaf, who has thrived for 24 months on a diet containing almost no carbohydrates. “Our goal is to combine creativity and a passion for good food, and to show that anything is possible,” Schaaf says.

Few experts would deny that giving up carbs is one of the most effective ways to maintain a healthy weight. The challenge of the blog “Delicious Low Carb” is to show that a low-carb diet doesn’t mean you have fewer menu options. “We’ve just come up with a low-carb version of everything we like to eat,” Schaaf says. The list includes pasta, bread, pancakes, French fries, chocolate, decadent desserts, and much more. On the whole, they look and taste as delicious as the originals. The low-carb version often tastes better, since fat—the main source of flavor—doesn’t have to be reduced.

“It’s an absolutely wonderful experience. Everything your diet normally doesn’t allow you to do is okay. A good brie after midnight? Two pieces of cake for dessert? No problem. And at every meal, you can eat until you feel full with a clean conscience!”

The blog chronicles Schaaf’s adventures in cooking, with more than 70 creative recipes and lots of information on low-carb diets. “To me, the most important thing is being able to indulge while becoming more fit than ever. The 44 pounds I lost have almost become secondary.”
