Camp Carbaway

One of the important tools in order to lose weight fast is to have a support system that motivates you in every step of the way.  However, if you live too far from your family and friends, or you simply do not have much of a social life, getting rid of those extra pounds may forever be just a dream.  Fortunately, there is a way to gain support and that is all done around a virtual campfire.

The gist

Camp Carbaway is an online resource for those going through the low- to no-carb diet and need additional support.  Members can register free to the site’s forum where they can gain access to tips and motivation needed to continue their engagement in the low-carb lifestyle. 

It was created by three people who met in a chat room for low-carb dieters, who then decided to go on their own and build a website.  The discussion on the forums focuses on low-carb diets such as Atkins, Zone, Stillman’s, and Carbohydrate Addicts.

At one time, becoming a member of Camp Carbaway costs $19.95.  However, it was not clear whether it was a one-time payout or that fee is renewable after a certain period.  Today, membership is free of charge, but you need to request for an invitation.

Advantages

Camp Carbaway provides easy-to-do ways to continue your low-carb dieting that you can do at home.  It also does not impose a single diet, as information about different low-carb or even no-carb diets are available in the forums. 

Camp Carbaway gives access to valuable weight loss tools such as a calorie calculator and glycemic index directory.

Disadvantages

However, you need to realize that you need to log-in to gain full access to the site.  Being a member also gives you guidance about your questions in low-carb dieting (if you ask, that is).
