Doug Varrieur's popular book has expanded…so everyone can get skinnier.

In the original Fat To Skinny Fast and Easy!, Varrieur distilled the “science” behind low-carb eating and laid out an amazingly simple system for eliminating the chief offender in weight gain: sugar. Now, in response to requests from his loyal followers, Varrieur has created an updated edition that combines his successful strategies for lifetime fitness with more than 100 yummy new, low-carb, sugar-free recipes. That makes it even easier to melt away the fat fast while still eating delicious, favorite dishes…and to keep it off for good. For added ease, each recipe has a carb count--and the book comes with an inspirational, motivational CD, too.

Hello my friend, I was FAT all my life and no matter what I did I couldn't drop the weight. One day I decided to make it my life's work to discover the answers to weight gain and loss in the human body. I found the secrets and melted off over 100 pounds, reversed my insulin resistance, balanced my blood sugar and cured my type 2 diabetes. That was over 7 years ago and I'm still a 32 inch waist today. Here are a few words from some readers......... *****I have lost 119lbs of FAT in 96 days! FAT TO SKINNY is amazing! Dear Doug, I'm so proud of you for beating your child hood problems with your weight. If you had not gone through that, we wouldn't be reading your book would we? You saved my life and I owe you so much. I was about to give up and have never quit anything in my life. I bought your book on Feb 14th 2009. I lost 119 pounds of fat in 96 days! Fifty people from the club have bought your book ! I will continue to recommend it to everyone I meet. God bless you and your wife.!!!! Shawn Goble Safety Harbor, FL *****Book helps readers burn fat, control diabetes II. "Varrieur writes with a straight forward, simple style. In the 180-page how to book, the font size is larger than that of traditional books, many words are in all caps to emphasize certain points, and pages are covered with graphics and pictures to keep the attention of readers. The author lays out facts in an uncomplicated manner, making this book both readable and understandable. The book is quick and concise". -Justin Waybright, staff writer, THE MOUNTAINEER NEWSPAPER *****On Sept. 10, I began to eat according to your plan. It was fairly easy to stick to the plan, since I didn't get as hungry as I used to when I would be on a "diet". I have now, on December 8, lost 30 pounds and am keeping my blood sugar level below 100 with no medication. At my last lab visit to my doctor, my HBa1c was 6.2 and my cholesterol levels were all great. I am very pleased at how much better I feel (and look.) Sincerely, Clarine G. Best *****Say goodbye to your gut! I lost 50 pounds with FAT TO SKINNY! Thanks Doug! Gary Portesy, FL *****I've been doing it for 4 months now after reading your book in April and have never looked back since. I've lost 51 pounds so far, and the weight keeps coming off. The book was totally worth it!!! Shepherd *****Hey Doug, what you've done for me is priceless, I finally hit my goal weight of 123, I lost a total of 30 pounds and I'm not having a problem maintaining at all, I've totally changed my lifestyle and feel awesome. Cheers, Laura *****My son and I began the Fat to Skinny eating plan and I went down three jean sizes (12 (almost a 14) to a large 6) in just three months! Guess what? I love the new skinny me and all the compliments constantly coming my way! My knees are rejoicing, no longer giving me grief and I feel so much younger and nimble! There is a skip in my step that I didn't even realize was missing. I am a firm believer and everywhere I go I share the eating plan that has given me back a more youthful experience and great enjoyment. Diana L. Flegal PA *****FAT to SKINNY Fast and Easy! is not a gimmick. It's a wonderful healthy eating plan that works with the bodies natural metabolism to burn fat and balance blood sugar. Over 175 full color pages of easy to read information in large print simple to understand and implement. Read it and enjoy your journey from FAT to SKINNY!

I was a 30 year old mother of two weighing in at 153, shopping for "old lady" clothes. I was convinced, "I'm married and have kids now; this is what I'm supposed to look like". It's pretty depressing if you think about It, I was only 30. Three years later I heard Doug Varrieur on the radio talking about his book, The radio DJ, Steve Austin lost a bunch of weight on Doug's program so I decided to get the book and see what it was all about. I had never dieted before, but I found FAT TO SKINNY really easy to follow and required just a little discipline and simple changes. WITH NO EXERCISE I lost 31 pounds!! I now weigh 122 and it only took 90 days! Now I just maintain my weight which is very easy with FAT TO SKINNY. I have things with sugar in them here and there, but I've totally changed my life and my routine. I have so much more energy and feel so much better about myself; it's a really easy "weigh" of life. Now my motto is, "I want to be hot, not fat!!" and my husband definitely approves!! The feeling I get when people tell me how great I look and what I've done is irreplaceable. Thank-you Doug!!

I read this book FAT TO SKINNY By Doug Varrieur..And it kinda all made sense with why its so hard for me to lose weight and keep it off...I know Im addicted to carbs..I love them!..But im also sensitive to them and should look at them as folks do thats allergic to peanuts...I started the plan Jan 6th and 1 week later I have a 7 lb loss and Im not going crazy with withdrawl from carbs and actually Im feeling Great..He has not only motivated me but made me realize it wasnt me not trying hard enough it was me not knowing what was sabotaging me. Thank so much Mr. Varrieur looking forward to your cookbook.

Now I have been working hard at losing weight for some time and I promise you it is not easy for me. But it is good to have the tools on hand to help me make the right decisions. This book would be great to use to help your kiddos learn good eating habits from the get go. First there is the Sugar Proof technique. What is that? * Spot the hidden SUGAR * Understand how to read labels * Get your children involved * Act immediately * Remove all the food and drinks that metabolize into blood sugar * Prepare your family meals * Replace the foods that metabolize into sugar with foods that dont * Organize a SUGAR PROOF gang * Offer you help in teaching others wheat you've learned * Forget everything you've been taught It does help to have a "game" with kids. They tend to want to be part of the GANG and to win at what they are doing. So I see how this can help them. I do like the way the book is laid out. Great color and easy to read. Also some fantastic recipes to use too! My favorite was the MacAFoney and Cheese. You might look around and see how much help you can get in aiding to your diet with this great tool of a book.

I believe that my "accidental" viewing of Doug's interview on the 700 Club was a Divine Appointment. I had recently been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and my doctor's advice was "eat a lot of lettuce, drink a lot of water, and stay hungry all the time....oh, and take these pills for the rest of your life!" I was not happy with this at all and had prayed for a solution that I could understand and live with. I am only 40 and I want to live a long and healthy life. By getting rid of this poison (sugar) that I was putting into my body, my blood sugar within a few weeks dropped from a fasting level of 244 to 110. I have lost 12 pounds so far, too. This is a lifestyle and mindset change that I can and will live with. There are substitutes for everything that you think you will miss or give up! I am eating better now than I ever did before when I put no restrictions on myself.

The book is fantastic! I have never had the success I am now experiencing with fat loss and increases in energy levels. The book outlines what to eat, and what not to eat in a easy to follow plan. Doug's story is very inspiring. I think I have read about every diet book under the sun this one fills like the right one, and is so easy to understand. Thanks Doug! I am going to follow this and post my success as I go.

I work at the building where Doug Varrieur publisher is located. We spoke in the lobby before he went up stairs. When he came down told me why he was here, and gave me a copy of his book to read. My demon has always bin soda AKA coke classic and the number 2 in my diet. I really didn't think it was going to be so easy but it was the book gives you tools to help you. Mine was just if wanted soda would have coke zero and one bagel not 2. Still can't believe that such a small change in diet would make such a difference. 40 lbs and 2 pants sizes.

This book caught my eye on my way out the door of B&N one afternoon and it opened my eyes to some very simple but too often overlooked facts about what we put into our mouths. Simple to read, easy to understand, power and positive results. It will change your eating habits and your overall health in wonderful ways!

Hi all! My husband and I cam across Fat to Skinny one morning watching the 700 Club! We have never watched the 700 Club. Our kids were getting ready for school one morning and we just left it on. And here comes Doug! I have been on several diets my whole life! and crashed and burned! and the weight came back! What makes his book work, is, there's no starving yourself, because they take out all your old foods, and don't replace them, like most diets. They replace them with better foods! Yes fast food is easy, and fast. But have you really loooked inside that brown bag? Nothing but sugar, is what you're eating! My husband and I are firm believers in Fat to Skinny. It's very specific though! You have to cut out ever bit of sugar! Even what you wouldn't think! I was on the change of life plan, still eating those complete dinners and wondering why I wasn;t loosing the weight! Duhhh...Cause I was still eating sugar! But my eyes have been opened, and I read every label in the stores, that I'm thinking about getting! And it does help to read the labels! Labels are sneaky! Well, there's no sugar, but there's "sugar alchol"! Which is just as bad! And just because it says the word "fruit" in it, doesn't necessarly mean it's good for you! So reading the labels is a must! I have been on the lifestyle for a few weeks now, and have lost 7lbs.!! My husband has lost 25lbs.!! So please give the book a chance!! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! I was! There is no "quick fix" to a life long problem! No pills, diets, or even worse, plastic surgeries are going to help you loose the weight AND keep it off! Good luck to everybody!!

This book is simply one word "AWESOME". It is very easy to comprehend and follow and get fantastic results. A person would just have to have their mind made up as this is a change of lifestyle and I do not consider it to be a diet.

This book Fat to Skinny by Author Doug Varrieur has changed my life. I am in the best health and shape I've been in years. It all started with Doug's simple easy to follow lifestyle change. The book is simple to read yet very informative and motivating. By applying the information, you can quickly be on your way to regaining what wasted time and years have taken from you. I just had my yearly check-up and my doctor says I'm getting in better health each time he sees me. I contribute this directly to beginning the Fat To Skinny lifestyle.
