I'm with Russell, I don't try to "remake" a recipe to get it l/c - If I see a l/c recipe that interests me, I'll maybe use it, but I usually do tweak even those for my own particular tastes.

I very seldom have anyone comment on what I eat - or don't eat. But then I don't eat "out" or socialize mealtimes as a rule, maybe 3-4 times a month is all. Normally I just eat at home. And on the off chance that someone does comment, I just say, "this is what I felt like tonight". No one has questioned it.

I don't make an issue of what I eat, nor do I make an issue on what someone else eats either. I may comment on a food for it's own sake, but not as what that person should or should not be choosing.. It really doesn't matter to me what someone else eats.

I hope everyone had a good and safe Labor Day weekend.

I wonder sometimes, when I'm fiddling with a lf recipe to make it lc, how many times it has gone back and forth. Am I making a lc version of a lf version of a lc version of a ...?

No I wasn't doing it to be snarky- I just felt snarky reading the accolades of LF. The recipe was great. It was the recipe of the day. I had been told by some in the 8 week diabetes challenge I was going to die from LC. So I just thought, hmmm should I tell them this tastes so much better with the full fat ingredients I used?
I don't like to say anything about how anybody else eats, but it was just one of those times it felt good to say- I eat FAT!!
I do upgrade a lot of really good LF recipes.

I think it's perfectly fine to comment on recommended recipes. Others list how they've "tweaked" recipes as found. I've occasionally left a comment on a recipe to the effect that it looks scrumptious, but it's too bad it isn't of any use for those of us trying to limit carbs. I figure, if they didn't expect remarks, there'd be no place to put them!

If it's a really good recipe, I think it should be ok to say something along the lines "Great recipe! I made it with higher fat ingredients and it was great. Thanks for posting it."

But, I would consider why I was doing it, first. Are you doing it to be snarky? Or do you really want to compliment and thank the person who posted it?

I agree with Suzanne. They are posting low fat recipes. I wouldn't even read them. I don't try to make higher fat versions of low fat food. I just eat different food.

Some of those people are going to read you comments, and be as upset as we are when someone comes in and " explains " to us why low carb is dangerous. It may be amusing, but in the end, it is just pushing other people's buttons. They should have a place to go discuss their nasty low fat foods. I'm not going to eat egg whites, but if they choose to do so, and are getting help, good for them, and when it fails, maybe you can be there to let them know.. just eat the whole d*mn egg, and lose the bagel.They won't ever listen to you, if they think you are rude. It isn't their fault that they are being lied to. I hope most of them succeed. I am rooting for everyone to have success.

That being said. I can understand the urge to be snarky every so often..lol

I think in the case of recipes almost no one makes them as-is. We all have such distinct preferences that it's pretty normal to substitute ingredients. It's appropriate in that light to list a low carb, high fat alternative, and point out that eating that way works for you.

If people are following another plan like low fat, I do not push my diet on them. I would not like it if someone commented on all our threads about using skim milk in coffee, etc.

Eliz - that's perfectly fine. After all, there are plenty of us low carbers that read those recipes, too.

Nah, not bad at all. Just remember to post how much you've lost eating those things!

Am I bad if I comment on Coach Nicole's yummy frittata recipe (on the SP homepage) saying that I used Swiss cheese, whole milk and butter when I made her LF recipe?

Some days I just get snarky after reading so much low fat, whole grains cr*p.
