The days are getting longer, minute by minute. We might not notice the change from day to day, but each one is a step toward a new season. That's Nature's way, and it applies just as well to the clock as it does to the scale.
In the meantime, if you're anything like me, you need to look forward to something positive in these dark days of winter. As for the immediate future, I hope it holds some low-carb Easter treats. (Have you tried Russell Stover's Low-Carb Assorted Chocolates? If not, run -- don't walk -- to your nearest retailer!)
With all the new low- and reduced-carb foods on the market, there's no reason to feel deprived. Take a look at the recipes on this site -- there's something for every palate! And we'll be adding many more -- plus even more features, advice and news. Is there something you'd like us to cover? A feature you'd like us to add? Drop us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
I'm also looking forward to that first warm day, when I can smell the sunshine. And it's coming. Closing in faster than you realize is a new season, a new you. And whether you're just starting out with your objectives far in the distance or continuing down a path that you know by now works, it's time to celebrate your commitment. Seize that first warm day and wallow in it. Take a walk, ride a bike, throw a ball for the dog, plant flower seeds with the kids ... all the while knowing that tomorrow you'll be that much closer to your goals. Spring is indeed a time for new beginnings. How appropriate, then, that the first issue of LowCarb Energy magazine hits the stands on May 4th! Loaded with information, tips, ideas and more than 50 reduced-carb recipes, our bimonthly publication is a must-read if you're watching your carbs.

When it comes down to it, nothing will help you more toward success than the support and ideas of others. I invite you to visit our online community, where you'll find a wonderful group of men and women who share your health concerns. Every time I read the latest entries, I learn something valuable, bolster my resolve and always -- always -- leave with a smile.
And that's my wish for you: a smile to carry you through these days of waiting.
Wishing you health,
