Overview

This is a breezy, chatty, non-technical, fun-to-read explanation of low carbohydrate dieting — why it works, the surprising health benefits, and most importantly, how to "do" the diet. Or, rather, diets,since the book details three very different main approaches to controlling carbohydrates (including the Basic Low Carb Diet, similar to Atkins or Protein Power, and the Mini-Binge Diet, popularized as The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet), plus several variations, finally summing up the basic principles which tie them all together. The point is to give the reader the tools necessary to construct a new way of eating that will fit his or her body, psyche, and lifestyle, thus allowing them to stay slim, energetic, and healthy for life.

Meet the Author

Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say "You can't eat that way long-term." Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, "What's for supper?" To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of CarbSmart magazine at www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.

I loved this book. After reading The New Atkins for a New You, I searched for other books on the subject of low-carb. Dana is funny and informative, like chatting with an old friend. She gives descriptions of several low-carb lifestyles along with positive and negative aspects for each. I'm very glad I stumbled upon this book.

I bought this book shortly after starting Atkins induction. It helped me to understand some of the science behind low-carb diets. I found the book motivational and helpful.

This is by far the most explanatory and informative book on the subject of a low carb lifestyle I have read.

This is a great book to read if you are interested in going low carb or already are. The author does an awesome job of explaining the basics of low carb and compares all the different low carb diets out there. She explains how carbs affect the body and brain. This book is very motivating. I was inspired to cook healthier for myself and family. Definately worth reading!
