Since I've been getting the emails every week for awhile now, I wasn't all that surprised, but it's getting discouraging. At first, we were told that no links were allowed. Then we were told that no-follow links were okay. But I'm still receiving emails asking me to remove them.
I'm going to remove all of them, so that the emails will stop (I don't want to jeopardize my ability to write there), and then carefully go back through all of my posts and add a "Related Articles" section at the bottom of the post that lists the URL of an Infobarrel article when it's appropriate.
I've already fixed the "Infobarrel Articles" section, which you can access through the buttons at the top of this page, or from the sidebar, because that page was specifically on Infobarrel's list of links to remove immediately. The URLs are there, but you'll have to copy and past them into your browser. That's the way I'll be handling the Related Articles section at the bottom of occasional posts as well.
I'm really sorry for the inconvenience, but the only other alternative I have at this point is to not have any references to my low-carb articles outside of this blog at all.
What to Do When Someone Criticizes Your Low-Carb Diet
My latest article at IB is about what to say and do when friends, family, or acquaintances begin to criticize your low-carb diet. I first had experience with this type of problem when a friend of mine came over and saw the book for Dr. Atkins' 2002 version of his diet sitting near my computer. At that point, I started to receive a lecture about the danger of ketones and ketosis.
