    It helped and is helping me

    I started doing the Atkins diet, but found it hard to stick with. This book showed me a way of eating that help me shed 25 pounds and reduce my headaches I would get from eating carbs. It is an easy read and the food charts, eat what with what, have been very helpful.

    We can do this!!!

    After having just found out I have type 2 diabetes, I was looking for information on healthy eating plans to manage my diabetes. This book was very informative and the plan simple to follow. Counting carbs and linking with protein have helped me get started on a lifetime health management system. I recommend this book for others out there who are frustrated trying to lose weight and having no success. The concept offered is easy to follow. The authors seem to have the credentials to back their information. I got the book at the library, but I plan to buy it! This is not another fad diet. It is a lifetime plan.

    Finally! A Diet that Works

    This diet can be the solution for those who can't lose weight, despite dieting and exercise. There is no depravation. It is a life-long eating plan that can work for every one. This plan recognizes that carbohydrates are essential for everyone so doesn't prohibit. Instead, the plan teaches the dieter to link carbohydrates with protein. Since carbohydrates are high glycemic and proteins are low glycemic, they balance each other. A bonus of the book is the tempting recipes. There's even one for chocolate cake.
