Good day...

Chocolate candy and almond cookies, fettuccine and cinnamon raisin bread, bagels and candy bars. These are some of the favorite things dieters dream about -- unless you are on a low-carb diet. So who cares about calories? You can eat your fill as long as it's low carb, right?

The bottom line is: Calories still count and they always will. To gain a pound of fat, you have to eat 3,500 more calories than you need. "It doesn't matter whether those calories come from protein, fat or carbohydrates. If you eat more calories, you gain weight."

Mayonnaise, for example, is basically just fat with no carbohydrates. Now Kraft has a label which points that out -- never mind that the mayonnaise has 100 calories per tablespoon. The latest flood of low-carb foods on the market concerns health experts. The biggest concern is that dieters will count carbs and ignore the fact that some products regardless of carbs are high in calories.

There's nothing wrong with eating low-carb products as long as you include them in your whole calorie plan. Part of your plan should be replacing sugar and artificial sweeteners with All Natural Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and Steviva Brand Stevia Powder .

Thank all of you for your patronage and have an excellent day.
