    Quick List of Low Carb Vegetables

    When it comes to creating your low carb meal plans, its all about personal preference. I used to just refer people to the Acceptable Foods List on the Atkins website for a great list of foods you can easily eat on a low carb diet. However, they have redesigned their website and made it a bit of a scavenger hunt to locate that low carb food list.

    The Worlds 1st Molecular Robot Has Just Been Created by UK Scientists

    We marvel at movies like Ant Man,Inner Space, and Fantastic Voyage, where someone or something can shrink down to the nanoscale and navigate a microscopic world. Although shrinking something down with some type of laser or energy field is all but impossible today, we are beginning to exact more and more control over tinier and tinier environments. The new and growing branch of nanotechnology promises much. In the near future, experts predict that nanosensors will be used inside our bodies to monitor our health and alert us to disease or even an oncoming health crisis. Nanosensors could also monitor the environment. Another exciting application is creating the next generation of materials with novel properties. These…

    10 Reasons Why Low Fat is NOT High Nutrition

    Low fat is bad news Fortunately, the low fat dogma of the late 20th century and early 21st century is sloooowly being accepted as the awful nutrition advice it really is. As a matter of fact, Sweden recently became theA?first Western nationA?to adopt a low-carb, high-fat approach to nutrition. Way to go, Sweden!
