    Thank you! It was definitely a honor to win that prize in the Atkins All
    Star contest and to have that many people vote for me.

    As I mentioned in the video, I use either HQ olive oil (non-EVOO) or
    coconut oil for shallow frying now. They both have equivalent smoke temps.

    I also used gouda cheese as its what I had in the fridge. I think this
    would be good with most any kind of cheese that has a tang to it. Arlene

    I’m loving all of your recipes and its really helping me stick to low carb
    eating. Yesterday I had the low carb big mac pie and it was a hit at my
    house. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to show us how to
    cook lowcarb.

    IF YOU NOTICE AMERICANS ARE EATING 4-5x MORE SUGAR THAN 20 YEARS AGO. SUGAR
    SI POISONOUS AND TOXIC, AND I HAVE BEEN ON LOW CARB SINCE FEB AND LOST 40
    LBS. BUT SUGAR IS HORRIBLE, BIG BUSINESS IS DUPING AMERICANS, DONT BE ONE
    OF THE LEMMINGS, FAT IS NOT BAD, I EAT LOTS OF FAT, AND AM LOSING WEIGHT
    (diagnosed w diabetes feb of this year and am only 39 yrs old) dont let
    your prejudice against fats keep YOU unhealthy!!!

    am low carbing, and am a chef also…the oil information is correct, but
    why change the oil quality to use a lower quality oil in order to control
    smoking, when all you have to do with the first pressed extra virgin is to
    turn down the heat?? BUT good job dude, i see all your videos on here and
    kudos to you sir for helping people. FOR THE PERSON WHP ASKED IS THIS
    HEALTHY, ITS A LOT MORE HEALTHY THAN ALL THE CRAP THE MEDIA WANTS YOU TO
    BELIEVE IS HEALTHY VERSUS BAD FOR YOU. DO SOME HOMEWORK,

    Hey everyone needs a catch phrase. :-)

    You could try vital wheat gluten, which is ironically low carb. You need a
    high protein source to hold the donut together.

    That’s my goal — making low carb and Atkins easier for all to do. I
    remember the first few weeks not knowing what to eat, and I wish others to
    have an easier road.

    You can find the xanthan or guar gum in the health food aisle of a larger
    grocery store. It is somewhat spendy at $8-10 for a small portion, but you
    use little. Amazon or netrition are other good (and cheaper) places to find
    it too.

    I’ve been using coconut oil for 2 years now. It’s good stuff! But of
    course, so is bacon, and peppers and… heh heh.

    Congrats that is an impressive loss already! I am honored to have been
    along for the ride. I hope you like this recipe.
