are a bunch of links I recommend, sorted into a couple of categories:
Low-Carb - a firsthand account & advice:
out as a vegetarian:
Vegetarian thread on a Low-Carb discussion board:
of a 2004 Documentary about the Atkins Diet:
Foods - great range of low-carb convenience foods in US,
sadly not available in Australia
Low Carbs - recipes, advice etc (US):
la Carb - as above, recipes, products, advice (US):
and New Zealand Local Resources:
Australia official site:
Bodies - "Protein for every Aussie Body"
Soap Supplies - Stevia Drops Supplier (honest!)
The Toast - Many low-carb essentials for baking, sweetening
and more. They sell WPI (Wheat Protein Isolate) and other ingredients
that make it possible to make your own bread that's low-carb.
Foods Australia - bake mixes, tasty muffin mixes etc
Carb Australia - general advice, links
Carb New Zealand - recipes, advice and links
Australia - makers of LSA (Linseed, Sunflower and Almond
Meal), which you can buy at Coles.
Products - makers of the very useful and reasonably inexpensive
Soy Compound that I buy at my local Coles Supermarket. It's not
nearly as low carb as specially-developed products such as WPI,
but it's less expensive and the fact that you can buy it at the
supermarket is very convenient. I use it for thickening vegetable
soups - it also makes the soup VERY filling as it's so high in protein.
- makers of the best stock cubes in the world. They do
"beef style" etc that are completely free of animal products
(good for people worried about BSE, even if you're not a vegetarian).
They're an Australian company, but you can buy their products in
many countries. There are loads of great recipes on their site too.
Breads - This Perth bakery does a range of low-carb products
now. I think their best is the low-carb flatbrot, which make great
