Format: Paperback
It is a brave man who takes on the low carb fad and Dr Krystosik meets it head on. He picks apart the Atkins diet and exposes its terrible health consequences.

Corrupt Medical Profession
Not satisfied with that he brutally exposes the medical profession's institutionalized prejudice against any treatment that does not fit into their orthodox paradigm. A paradigm which, seemingly, has abandoned its Hippocratic ideals of allowing the body to heal itself.

He excoriates the American Medical Association for carrying out a systematic dirty tricks campaign to discredit alternative, yet scientific, practices. To be fair, many good medical doctors quietly practice `integrative medicine', which incorporates neighboring sciences such as nutrition.

Alternative Food Pyramids
Dr. Krystosik has an interesting chapter where he comprehensively demonstrates the foolishness of the USDA food pyramid. In its place he sets out alternative pyramids, each based on an ethnic diet that has a healthier profile: Latin-American, Asian and Mediterranean.

Carbohydrates from Heaven
So what is a "Carbohydrate from Heaven"? If you ask Joe Blow, "What food-groups do fruits and vegetables belong to", he would be hard put to tell you. In fact they are carbohydrates and most of Dr. Krystosik's `carbs from heaven' are indeed fruits, salads and vegetables. However, on the basis of his ethnic pyramids, he also includes whole grains, potato and beans.

Carbohydrates from Hell
Dr. Krystosik's `carbs from hell' are refined, processed grains, French fries and sugars. However, Dr.

My Doctor told me I should lose weight, at my age it seemed impossible until I borrowed this book from the Library. After reading it I decided to buy one for myself. I knew it wouldn't be easy to lose weight but this seemed the best way for me to go.To date I have lost 20 lbs and I am starting to feel great. This book is easier than counting calories, I recommend it very highly.

Kudos to Dr. Krystosik for finally addressing the importance of carbs in our diets! I went on a quest several years ago to solve my hypoglycemia. On doctor's orders, for 2 years I ate NO carbs. Although the hypoglycemic symptoms GREATLY decreased, I suffered through an increase of new symptoms like: infections, headaches, cysts, anxiety, & chronic fatigue. I did lose weight, but so much that I couldn't maintain a normal weight. At one time I was 105 lbs and I am 5'6" tall. I was "sickly"! Then, I had the opportunity to take the IgG allergy test Dr. Krystosik recommends in his book and found that the carbs I was allergic to were: corn, gluten grains, and sugar. I began eating potatoes, beans, non-gluten grains and flours, fruits, honey, etc. ALL my symptoms disappeared in a very short period of time! My weight stabilized. Most importantly, now I feel GREAT! If I had read this book several years ago, it would have saved me so much time, frustration, aggravation, money, and discomfort! I applaud Dr. Krystosik for his personal and professional efforts to solve the link between what we eat and how we feel!!!

As the mother of 5 children, I only wish that the FDA would adopt Dr. Krystosik's insightful eating plan, as I hate the idea that America's children are being fed so much "poison"...simply because the decision makers for their diets are misinformed!

I strongly recommend this book not only to those trying to solve weight issues, but also to anyone who suffers from ANY chronic symptom! Dr. Krystosik's book proves, that what you eat, STRONGLY affects how you feel!!!!!!!

Dr. Krystosik's book was the key I needed to finally begin to lose weight. It's not a diet, rather it's a change of lifestyle. And a pleasant one at that. I am not hungry and I am seeing numbers on my scale that I haven't seen in years.
