Just checking in...dropped close to 40 lbs. in bout 9 1/2 weeks. I have added gelatin to my diet, so my skin still fits as I shrink. Unflavored, of course. I'm bringing back aspic. Using plenty of chicken or beef broth, and the occasional tomato juice with lemon and Tabasco. Add boiled, peeled shrimp and it's shrimp cocktail aspic. Side of horseradish. Pretty good.

Due to interest and a number of our members who are on LCHF/Ketogenic Diets, this sub-forum has been added under Health, Nutrition and Special Diets If you have a thread already started, report it for me and I can get it moved to the new sub-forum.


Thanks, JanetH for making this come about!

Hi, there. Been low-carbing since 2009. I have a question. I see people are linking to other websites for recipes, so that appears to be allowed. But after reading the site rules, if I'm understanding them all correctly, although I have a low-carb recipe site with over 1,400 recipes now, I cannot ever link to them here because I have been a contributing member of the LOW CARBING AMONG FRIENDS team that publishes cookbooks (8 volumes now). I personally chose not to accept any payment for my contributions in those cookbooks and have since actually "retired" from posting for them. But I continue to promote their cookbook sales on my website as a courtesy to my dear friend, Jennifer Eloff, who has been low-carbing even longer than I have. Am I understanding this correctly? That my site would be considered a "for profit" site (although not MY profit) and I can never share my low-carb/keto recipes on this forum?

That would be unfortunate and pretty stupid in my opinion if this were the case. Why would a cooking site repel even professional cooks? I can dig blocking spammers, but if a chef is actively participating in the forum and not just spamming to promote some other web site; this seems like an excellent value for the site members.


Nothing says I cant link it does it?

https://buttoni.wordpress.com/

If so, boot me. I was about to begin my photo and recipe sharing with one of Buttoni's recipes that I have made repeatedly and even adjusted the recipe method to suit my own preferences. I know I'm not supposed to direct copy and paste the work of someone else, so my intention was to link to Buttoni's recipe(s) (And others in the future, not just hers), and only share my experiences with them and photos from my work in the kitchen, only actually posting text of a recipe if I have modified it from the original ingredients or directions to show the modifications I have made...and of course any original recipes or works of my own.


I invited Buttoni over to this fledgling forum because she has been a huge help to me over at another Low Carb forum site, and I think she and her blog would be very beneficial to the forum members here. You can see she's no stranger to the quirks of sites like these and their sometimes restrictive rules, she's trying to stay in the lane.


I look forward to the ruling on this. PrincessFiona has been monitoring these LC threads, maybe She (that's assuming Princess is a female, I dont know for sure), will chime in soon to advise.

Under Rules:
Quote:
  • NO SPAM! Our user base is not a resource to be "mined" by individuals, groups, or businesses, for profit or not for profit. Participants may not post affiliate links or links to direct others to any pages at their own commercial website or website in which they have a commercial interest.
  • Do not use posts to promote your blog, videos, surveys or contests. You may place a single link in your signature to a noncommercial blog.

As times have changed, many blogs have added links to make a profit. These then become commercial blogs. I don't blame them. It's not up to us to decide the rules of the forum.



I don't know what PF will decide, but there is nothing here stating you can't put your own recipes, or variations on other's recipes here to share. I am looking forward to reading more low carb recipes so I hope you both enjoy it here.

I am asking for advice from the entire Mod/Admin team.



The biggest reason for not allowing blog links is we are here to discuss cooking, not driving members to other sites.


If they are your recipes, I see no problem with posting the entire recipe here.


PrincessFiona is decidedly female, BTW. The avatar is a picture of me, a long time ago.
