While I know there are some really good low-carb recipes for desserts and breads and other "treats" I don't think that's enough to convince someone to go low carb.

The energy, the tasty foods that ARE allowed (bacon? steak? avocado? cheese?) are what I think can help someone, and the huge release from hunger.

But I've never tried to convince someone this is the good diet for them - I just try to keep front and center of my mind that it's a good diet for ME....

Would love to know what you came up with, though!

It doesn't sound to me like they are in a place that they are interested in low-carb eating. You might be able to interest them in something like CAD (the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet). I haven't tried that myself, but I understand that the idea is to eat all your carbs in one meal. That way, they could have a dessert after dinner (again, I don't know the details of that diet, but I assume that would be OK).
