April 2017: Low-Carb Garlic Recipes, Video Presentation from Dave Feldman, and New Authority Nutrition Articles
April is National Garlic Month! Garlic is naturally low in carbs, providing about 1 gram of net carb per clove. It has a lot going for it, including a unique flavor and aroma, impressive benefits on immune function and overall health, and versatility. Here are five delicious low-carb recipes featuring garlic.

Video Presentation by Dave Feldman: The Dynamic Influence of a High Fat Diet on Cholesterol Variability
February 2017, Low Carb Breckenridge
This month, I'm sharing a brand-new video presentation from Dave Feldman, a software engineer with a strong interest in cholesterol regulation. I've had the pleasure of meeting Dave twice at conferences and have found him to be extremely kind, knowledgeable, professional and respectful of others' views. Like me, Dave is a hyperresponder, a term coined to describe someone whose LDL cholesterol and particle numbers increase dramatically in response to a ketogenic diet.
On his blog, Cholesterol Code, Dave documents a series of experiments he's done to test his lipid responses to varying amounts of fat and calories. The results are pretty amazing, and likely the opposite of what you'd expect to see. I've read that Dave rates his concern about his lipid values at about a 5 out of 10 on the worry scale (down from 9 initially), and I'm not too far behind him at about a 6.5 on that scale (down from 9.9 initially!) with respect to my own. I'm sure you'll enjoy this presentation and will be left with a lot to think about.
