dane, that's a good idea as well. Really, a lot of things could be put there to mean P.A.L.

Lots of great ideas here. It's so hard to decide just which one I like best.

The PLAN one would be my second choice, but I'm not sure about the Lowcarber part...... seems to imply it can only be used by a LC-er, rather than, say, a low fatter, or a Zoner.


This website is http://forum.lowcarber.org . All the more reason to have lowcarber in it.

I submitted a number of suggestions in "think tank" or brainstorming style. I was thinking of it in terms of the larger market as well, and IMO some version of the terms "tools" or "track" is appropriate when I envision it on store shelves. I'm not a veteran here, but my background is in marketing so I can't help but join in the discussion.

The winning name is My P.L.A.N.

As the initial suggestion for P.L.A.N. (Personal Lowcarber Assessment Notebook) came from Elihnig, she gets the book. And 4Beans4me added the "My", which added a nice touch, she gets one too

What I like about the name is that it stands on it's own, as a name or as an acrynom. It's a lot shorter than Progress-Tracker.

We may use te acrynom differently though, as (My Personal Lowcarber Analysis & Nutrition)...

Another reason for choosing MyPLAN is that we will eventually have a very detailed customization tool added to it, where it let's you monitor and score against a criteria you set for yourself.

So, congrats to Elihnig and 4Beans4me (Please PM Karen with your mailing addresses and how you'd like the book signed)

And thanks to everyone for participating, as this brainstorming session helped a lot

Wa'il

Of my my own creation i like Carbytoolz, but out of your suggestions i reckon my P.L.A.N. is the best.
P.S. it's great that this will be a new feature on the site.

Well, I didn't win, but I'm not bitter -- much Think I'll drown my sorrow by eating some carbs -- NOT!

Seriously, congrats to the winners! Can't wait to use "My P.L.A.N."
