I know a lot of people here rave about the service they get from "The Low Carb Grocery". Not being in Canada, I've not ordered from them myself, but having checked out their website, it looks like they have a great selection of Walden Farms products and other Dr. B friendly "stuff".
One of the members here sent me a PM saying that The Low Carb Grocery had a new affiliate program where commissions can be earned if your site sends customers to them. It has never been my intent to use this site to make money, but in this case, The Low Carb Grocery seems to be one of those businesses that is an asset to Dr. B dieters (especially if you have trouble finding these products locally), and if supporting them makes me a couple bucks that I can invest in the forums in some way -- so much the better.
Anyway, if you shop at The Low Carb Grocery by using the banner/link below, that will identify us as your referrer and get us the credit when you order.
I have to say that I really toiled with whether or not to participate in this. If it weren't a company that I already knew was giving great service to the members here I wouldn't have even considered it because I'm not willing to promote something just for monetary gain. Even despite the fact that they deserve any business we can send them, I wonder if me participating in a way that generates revenue to me still looks bad and shouldn't be done. I'm definitely interested in any feedback on that aspect of this.
P.S. If you have a low carb store (or other retailer) in your area that really helps you with the diet, please do support them. I have one in my area and it is privately owned, and it is such a valueable asset that I make sure to buy things there even if I can get the same item at the grocery store -- just to help make sure it stays around.
[Edited to add:]
If you're having trouble finding Shirataki noodles locally, The Low Carb Grocery carries them (among tons of other good things). This link should take you to them and still show you as referred by our site.
Being 100% strict is for losers! You want to be a loser don't you?
If you're new to the diet, be sure to check out Question #16 of the Dieters FAQ. It might help save you some needless worry.
