    I remember in 2005 when you could walk into any store and find great low-carb products. One I remember and miss dearly is Carborite's toaster tarts. They were fantastic, but unfortunately they changed their business model to a more generic one, offering only low-carb chocolate and shakes. Even in the large metropolitan area where I live, it is difficult to find many low-carb items. The products that used to fit into the low-carb category have been gradually tweaked to increase the amount of useless carbs, without improving the taste one iota. Nature's Own bread, for example, used to have only 5g net carbs in the fiber & wheat bread. A couple of months ago my wife noticed that it went up to almost 10g. We will not buy it anymore.

    We do need to start demanding more low-carb items, and on the flipside, need to make sure that we boycott and encourage others to boycott not only the ultra high-carb items, but the ones that are trying to be “medium-carb” (e.g. south beach diet type foods).

    By the way, “be wary of any low-fat diet plan that says you can eat pounds of bread and sugar, but that omega-3 fats are forbidden!”

    Ok… I see what you're trying to say onision, but how do you expect everyone to change their whole lifestyle just because some farm raised animals, which are raised for consumption and are NOT in danger of extinction, are killed and cooked for us to gain nutrition? If it was some would exotic animal I could understand, but it's not. It's a cow. or a pig. Or a hen. They're all raised to be eaten, so how could you say it's wrong to eat them when it's their purpose?

    Maybe they have a lot of oils in them, fish oil maybe ? Try cutting back to 1 capsule til you’re more used to it and not getting diarrhea.

    Another tip for healthy aging is to drink a lot of water. Dehydration is a major factor of aging skin. People who suffer from aging skin should consider increasing their water intake to flush out the toxins and to keep their skin hydrated (to maintain skin elasticity).

    [...] Remember, above all, skin needs a gentle touch. When people are unhappy with their skin, they tend to scrub it which only leads to more damage. Clean your skin gently and use a self-foaming cleanser. Abrasive cleaners are not necessary. Look for all natural ingredients, avoid parabens and petroleum, be gentle and be safe around the sun to get your healthiest, youngest looking skin.
