  • The Drink Your Carbs Food Pyramid

    April 21, 2014 | 0 comments

    The Drink Your Carbs Food Pyramid - Low Carb Eating Plus Alcohol.Our friend’s seven-year-old daughter refuses to draw heads on her figures. Give her a piece of paper and set of markers and she will create a colorful world of birds, clouds, trees, flowers and headless bodies dressed in elaborate costumes. The last step in her creative process is to sketch a teapot onto each set of empty shoulders.

    “Have you ever heard of the artist Magritte?” Steven asked. She shook her head no. “I love your picture,” Steven added. “But I have to ask, why is everyone in your drawing half human and half tea service?

    “I’m no good at faces,” she answered, “but I’m great at teapots.”

  • DYC Goes To Antarctica

    March 04, 2014 | 0 comments

    Chinstrap Penguins in Antarctica - The Drinker's DietWe took Drink Your Carbs to the bottom of the world to test it in one of the harshest environments on Earth.

    While planning our expedition, we imagined ourselves as modern day Shackletons surviving off our wits, seal blubber and cask strength whiskey. It turns out that this lifestyle is now prohibited under the Antarctic Treaty. These days, visiting is more like being transported into an episode of the Love Boat in which Puerto Vallarta has been replaced by a frozen continent. In our case, the role of Captain Stubing was played by a stereotypically gruff, but caring, former Russian naval commander. Charo was played by a balding Canadian named Scott.

    In other words, instead of hauling a wooden sledge through chest-deep snow, we did our trekking from a balcony suite on the Ocean Diamond, a Quark Expeditions luxury ship.

  • The DYC Top Five Of 2013

    December 31, 2013 | 0 comments

    Happy New Year from Drink Your Carbs: The Drinker's DietThe defining characteristic of DYC in 2013 was research. We decided that it was finally time to channel our inner Woodward and Bernstein and head into the library to see what we might uncover. It was a risky move. It was possible that evidence would force us to scrap the entire DYC project.

    Lucky for all of us, the opposite proved true. We stared into the face of cold hard data and came away fully convinced that alcohol is not an obstacle to either weight loss or exercise. DYC may have started as a joke, but we inadvertently stumbled onto a system that works.

  • Santa to Consume Over One Billion Cookies This Christmas Eve

    December 22, 2013 | 0 comments

    Cookies for Santa - Not a low carb treat Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house / Not a creature was stirring, except for Santa who trying to choke down his billionth cookie of the evening.

    In our experience, the over-21 set tends to be Santa skeptical. Some people get hung up on the impracticality of delivering presents to the roughly 2.2 billion Christians worldwide. Others concern themselves with the physics of flying reindeer or the difficulty of stuffing a morbidly obese man down the narrow flue of a modern chimney. At Drink Your Carbs, our skepticism springs from the sheer volume of cookies left on hearths that, for politeness reasons, Santa is required to consume.

  • CrossFit Is Not Dangerous: Injuries From CrossFit Compared To Other Athletics

    CrossFit Is Not Dangerous: An Analysis Of The Injuries From CrossFit Compared To Other Athletic Activities.If you are unfamiliar with CrossFit, your cable package clearly doesn’t include ESPN3. About a year ago, ESPN3 dumped its 24/7 uninterrupted coverage of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in favor of endless reruns of the CrossFit Games. Increased publicity has led, predictably, to increased criticism.

    We have been CrossFitting for nearly five years.  We decided that it was time to add our voices to this contentious debate.

  • The Truth About Alcohol And Weight Loss

    October 30, 2013 | 0 comments

    Alcohol and Diet Guide: Drink your CarbsThere is no shortage of “diet” experts who delight in pointing out that half a bottle of wine with dinner adds roughly 300 to 325 calories to your day; a couple of pints of microbrew can add even more. The calories in alcohol, they argue, are too high and therefore incompatible with any form of dieting.

    We disagree.

  • How Many Calories Does Deep-Frying Add?

    Drink Your Carbs: Fried food at a State FairThe two most frightening words in the English language are “extra crispy.”

    We were reminded of this on a recent visit to the Hopkinton State Fair in New Hampshire. Some of the foods available from the vendors could rightly be described as homicidal. They had taken the least healthy foods that science has ever produced and found a way to more than double the calories without adding even a single useful nutrient.

    All of those bright colors and food additives sheathed in oily breading got us wondering: exactly how many calories does deep-frying add? We knew that frying was bad, but we wanted to know how bad. That question turned out to be far more difficult to answer than we imagined.
