    FAQ: A Beginner's Guide to LowCarb Living

    Did you know that the answer to many of your questions about
    the Low Carb Diet can be found on the F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked
    Questions) page for the alt.support.diet.low-carb newsgroup?
    Try following the link below or the backup site that appears
    below it:

    http://www.grossweb.com/asdlc/faq.htm
    http://home.comcast.net/~agross/asdlc/

    There is a mailing list for people to receive email when the
    FAQ has been updated. Aaron and Rudy have put a great amount
    of time and expense into compiling and maintaining this site.
    All affiliate commissions (except for Amazon.com) are donated
    to a local Los Angeles charity. The Amazon.com commissions
    are Aaron's sole "reward" to offset some of his costs in
    time and materials. Please show your appreciation by using
    his site to order your books and materials.

    Did you read the FAQ but just don't remember if something
    was covered? MOST questions can be answered in the FAQ without
    having to read the whole FAQ. Just stick a pound sign # and the
    term in question after the FAQ's URL and you will go directly
    to the section of the FAQ you want. For example:

    http://www.grossweb.com/asdlc/faq.htm#numbers
    will answer your question about the numbers (##/##/##)
    http://www.grossweb.com/asdlc/faq.htm#woe
    will answer your question about what WOE means

    This will also work with the alternate site.

    If that does not answer your questions fully, why not try
    the Google Groups Search Engine? You can search all news groups
    for past discussions on topics about low carb. You can find the
    Google Groups Search Engine at:

    http://groups.google.com/

    Alternatively, do a Google advanced search

    http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search

    Or, use the form appearing in the left margin menu of each page
    on the FAQ site.

    While it is highly recommended that all newbies read the
    aforementioned official ASDLC F.A.Q. before posting, the
    preceding sites are meant to be an adjunct and can be browsed
    at your leisure. We hope that you will find them helpful in
    your weight loss endeavor.

    If you are newbie to the net, you may want to read about online
    etiquette.
