I am going from a DFW girl to Houstonian girl soon. Has anyone there thought about or opened their own low carb store?

Does anyone know where to find Hood's Carb Countdown Dairy Beverage and Carb Countdown Yogurt Smoothie in the Houston area?

I've seen the carb countdown milk & smoothies at Randall's. I know Wal-Mart has the milk. I haven't been to a Wal-Mart since the smoothies came out so don't know if they have those too.

Well maybe this is weird... I was going to start a Houston thread because I couldnt find one, but here we go.... 3 pages back and hiding from everyone.

Is anyone interested in resurecting this thread? Anyone home?!

The walmart on West Rd has the Hood milk and several kinds of yogurts and smoothies, oh so yummy.

Hi everyone, I moved to Houston from Australia a few months ago. I am finding all the info great. I found Sandy's when I was here last year and need to make a visit there again soon.

We eat at Bennigans a fair bit and they have some good low carb meals.

Anyone want to resurrect this thread or ?
So much has happened over the course of a couple years-- the locarb business has been booming, and now you can't go anywhere without finding at least a list of something to eat for the LC'ers.

I have not kept up with the LC scene in Houston. I do however love HEB Mootopia milk. Its not that bad. Its lactose free, and reduced sugars/carbs.

Good for an active lifestyle.

HI. Nice to meet you. I'm south of Houston, down in Pearland. Pretty far from the Galleria but we might find some opportunities to help each other. For example, if you ever need an LC doctor, mine is pretty good. PM me if you want to exchange contact info.

Would love to hear about your LC Doctor. I am going to see Dr. Reddy for the first time, but he is all the way down in Sugarland. Wouldn't mind having other options if Dr. Reddy's office is just too hard to get to from Houston.

I am a new member here, so I don't think I have pm privileges.

If you are registered, you have pm. Look in the User CP on the green bar, up at the top. It's the first item.
Anyway, Dr. Rafiq is at the professional building in the Memorial Hermann Hospital Southeast complex, right around the corner from San Jacinto College South Campus. It's still not too close to Houston but It is a straight shot south from downtown, on the Gulf Freeway.
He is not proactively LC but he won't scold you or tell you to eat more grains if you tell him you eat keto, or LC or other buzzwords that he will know is w/o sugar and starches. I also don't think he freaks out over high total cholesterol when your HDL and TGs are right.
What part of town are you in?

Just a Debbie downer about low lactose milk...sorry but
it's not low carb.
Stick to heavy cream and cheese for your calcium.

But on a positive note: HEB has the highest fat cream so lowest carb count of all the creams and the lowest price too!!

That is true of brands like Lactaid and other specifically lactose free milk but Mootopia has only six g./8 oz.
https://www.heb.com/product-detail/...fat-milk/671076

It is their own product, different from the other lactose free brands. I actually hadn't noticed the very prominent 'lactose free' banner emblazoned on the carton, in my automatic action of turning the carton around to see the panel on the back. I know 6g. is not VLC but it's half, or less, than most milk that you see. I indulge in just an ounce or so, mixed with a splash of cream, to wash down foods that are like comfort foods if had w/milk. It also helps tremendously for my dh who is being forced to do lc for his diabetes. It's a whole different picture when it is not a choice you made for yourself, but you do it due to it being the only way to prevent health catastrophes from DM.
I appreciate having it pointed out to me that it is lactose free since my grown dd comes over quite a bit and she tries to consume less lactose. Her sensitivity has improved but she is concerned that if she just drinks it w/o care, it will return.
I'll check out the cream, too. I never knew that.
