@H McEvoy- That is total carbs.  To get net carbs, you take the total carbs and subtract the grams of fiber. (3.6g net carbs)

Another #LowCarb salad dressing recipe for all those starting #AtkinsDiet. This one was one of my favorites growing up as a kid in my Dutch grandma household.

It not how many calories are in something, but what your body does with the calories. When you keep your carbs low, your insulin levels stay low, so instead of storing calories as body fat, your body is free to use them to feed your starving cells. High levels of insulin mean that your body is storing fat, and starving your body cells which need the energy. 
  Think of it like having a job where all the money goes into the bank and you are only allowed to get out 5% because of a nasty bank guard named insulin. So despite the fact that you have a good job, you are homeless and starving on the street. So you get a second job, and the same thing happens. So you get a third job, and the process repeats. The 4th job helps a bit, but not much. It does not matter how hard you work (how much you eat) you are homeless and starving.
  Cut the carbs, get ride of the fat guard and you can get the fat out of the fat bank. 
   I use to have to eat every few hours or I would have the shakes. I have not experienced that in years. If I am busy doing something, 5 or 6 hours can go buy without my even realizing it. A low carb diet isn't just about losing weight, it's about improving your overall health and well being.

@Kimberly Arroyo - I do use Heinz, which tastes pretty authentic to me.  The other ones on the market aren't very good IMHO.  Another option would be to make one with a sweetener of your liking.  Linda Genaw has a good recipe for it:

Yep, that is a big problem with some keto followers they never get fully adapted to burning fat for fuel. 10 years into a ketogenic diet, I never have had that problem -- now I run marathons, do HIIT type workouts with my daughers, or lift weights in the gym.  Great video!

PS - If you ever need ketogenic meal ideas, you can check out my channel.  :-D

I guess I am one of the last Corel VideoStudio Pro users.  It's simple and mature enough for me.

Sometimes people think that owning "this" pro hard/software is what is needed to make great storytelling videos. While they afford greater flexibility and potential growth, there is no substitute for the person using it. VSP is a solid program that does a lot as other consumer programs now can do. And as you said, proxy editing helps those without super hardware. Pinnacle Studio introduced background rendering to the consumer. Render while still editing (originally in Pinnacle Edition/Avid Liquid). I like the program and have no trouble recommending it to someone just starting out.

Virtualization engineer and Atkins Diet success story
Introduction
7 years ago I recognized I could not continue living as I was.  I was well over 400 pounds, and I had severe case of sleep apnea, borderline hypertension, and many other pending health problems.  Over the next 15 months, I lost 204 pounds to reach 225 pounds on the Atkins Diet.  I rejoined the Iowa National Guard and achieved dreams I never even thought I had.

Since then, I have ran multiple marathons and produce perhaps the most popular low carb videos on Youtube.  I enjoy sharing my low carb recipe creations with fellow low carbers and make their entry into the lifestyle easier than mine.
Bragging rights
Was featured in national magazines for my weight loss success story, and in my regional newspaper multiple times.

After living in Polk City for nearly 5 years, we finally made it to TCI. I suppose we waited due to not feeling good enough to go to the land of luxury of TCI and memories of over-priced country club food elsewhere. This was to our discredit. The food quality was great, and the pride they show in their restaurant and their food was quite evident. The Sunday brunch was great!
