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.

Author's own biographical experience in switching from LOW Fat, High Carbs diet to a very moderate form of LC.

As a layman, author gets a lot of "facts" wrong - LC, or more truly VLCHF, diets require very high levels of fats, especially animal fats - not very high protein levels, but significantly sufficient levels).

This author has swung back and forth from moderately LC to low calorie, no sugar back to LC and most recently to Paleolithic.

I guess anything to make a buck.

Her LC books have been only moderately so (and she clearly doesn't grasp VLCHF).... and her Paleolithic attempts have been ridiculous.
