I'm Thai. I'm 25,male and i weight 110 kg.
I've tried to lose my weight for many years, but i can't! I'm a food addict!

I bought this book in Kindle version.
after I finish reading it, I decided to follow this method.

And it's work! I lost 5 kg in a month even I ate a lot of food more than you can imagine!!!
... but It's not the best news for me yet!

I also went to hospital to check up my health.
My sugar level back to normal! And I had a really really bad level of SGPT in the last time. Normal people should has it around 0 - 50. but me, 277 !!
(I don't drink any alcohol by the way, doctor said I had too much fat in my liver and should avoid fat)

After I followed this low-carb diet and then I re-check it again.. AMAZING! My SGPT level decreased from 277 to 70!

And I did eat FAT! A lot of fat (sorry doctor). It's so amazing

I want to say more about a lot of good things of this book and this method. But my english is not very well. - -"

So for summary, I can say that ... "This book is one of the best things in my life" ^ ^

"KORB-KUN"
in thai it mean...

Thank you, really thank you.

UPDATE : 2/7/2012
I checked up my health again on 8/2/2012 and wanna share the result.

Sugar : 84 N : 70- 100
Uric Acid : 7.5 N : 2.6 - 7.2 ( I think I ate too much chicken - -")
Cholesterol : 153 N : 150 - 200 (I eat 3-4 whole eggs everyday but It's still fine!)
Triglyceride : 48 N : 50 -150
HDL-C : 43 N : 32 - 68
LDL-C : 89 N : 0 -130
SGPT : 32 N : 0-40 (This is the one I used to have 277, and It's normal now ^^)

Before I tried this method,many people told me that LC is unnatural... how can we cut carb in every meal?! (and yes,in Thailand White rice is our main food)
But after everyone see my result. They all ask me how to do it now. lol

I bought this book after trying a few different diets to get off the weight I gained when I quit smoking. I really only wanted to lose about 30 lbs. and had accepted that after age 30 I would just be fatter than I was at 20. I was wrong. I lost 75 lbs. and have my high school body back at age 40. I could not be more ecstatic. My energy level has increased exponentially. I couldn't believe it. You can take information from the diets explained in this book and customize to your own needs. It is not difficult and I have never been starving on this diet like I have on every other diet. Giving up sugar is the hardest part for me, but I still indulge..just much less often. I started this diet about a year and half ago and have not gained any of the weight back.

I am a born sceptic. I also have been obsessed with food for my entire adult life. When I am going to eat, what I am going to eat, where I am going to eat, if there will be enough food left by the time I get to the front of the line... Not a very nice way to live. This book HAS CHANGED MY LIFE! So far, everything she has said has been true. Everything that she said would happen, has happened. And it's not hard to do at all! Sure, the initial adjustment to serving a meal with no potatoes or bread is a little odd, but you get over it pretty fast. Somehow, this diet just clicked with me. After reading her book, I have at least 6 more reasons to eat this way than just to lose weight. That's not even my focus any more! She explained all the different approaches of all these other authors and shows you how to pick and choose which aspects of which approaches will work best for you. It's remarkably easy to read, too!
I used this book along with Lauri's Lo-Carb Cookbook and the Greg Smithey "Easy Toning" tape, and I lost 10 pounds the first week and, I don't know if my initial measurement was wrong or what, but I lost and INCH off my waist! I have ordered the rest of Mr. Smithey's "Easy" videos now, and use Lauri's cookbook everyday. I have not yet found a recipe I or my husband didn't like.
I hope you find something that works for you. But for my money, this was the best that was out there for me.

I spent two weeks reading this book over and over while practicing some of the principles and during that time I lost ten pounds! This book is entertaining, non technical and includes easy to understand summaries of all the popular low carb diets. I've read all the other books on this subject but this one is easily my favorite. Buy this book if you want the "skinny" on low carb diets!

This is the best low carb diet book I have read. It covers the medical facts in an east to understand way and gives an outling to the major diets, and unlike Dr Atkins book you don't have to plow through hundreds of pages of goop to get to what you want to know, 'how do i do this and what can I eat' This is a read lady telling of real experiance and I hope I'm as successful as Dana at this way of Eating for life.

Since reading this book, I have more energy now than I have had in 12 years. I've lost 30 pounds and 8 SIZES in my clothes so far. It is very easy to follow the guidelines in the book and you never feel hungry.I have tons of energy at night (after working full-time) and I have seen improvements in my hair, nails, eyes and emotional state.My friends and family have all asked what I have done in these 4 months and I have referred them to this book. You deserve to feel great so get the book and learn how!

This is one of the best comprehensive looks at low carb dieting that I have found. The discussions of the different approaches and sorting out the how and why of the various diets is enlightening. It is really helpful in developing an individual diet plan that is right for you and, most importantly, sustainable for long term weight loss. I am experiancing success and have a better idea of why this diet works for me. The information is presented in a clear and easy to understand manner that conveys confidence that her success can also be yours.

If your thinking about going low-carb, this is a book you must read before choosing a low-carbohydrate plan. Dana gives you the pros and cons on several of the top low-carb plans, and she does it in an easy to read format followed up with medical research documentation. Awesome book that is well worth the money.

I've told my friends I'm low carbing, so if they are staring at my rear end, I know why! If they are curious about my slim body, high energy, and obvious cheerfulness, I always recommend this book. It covers all the different plans, gives reasons why so many people are eating this way, and explains the science beautifully and clearly.
Another reason is because it is a fun read! A funny style and remarkably broad scope makes it a book that you can read over and over again. I've found better ways to inform people of the benefits of low carb thanks to this book. She's a natural teacher and gets your enthusiasm up all over again.

At age 40, I found myself overweight and vaguely concerned with my eating habits and nutritional ignorance. When I was unexpectedly confronted with high cholestrol and triglycerides scores I knew I had to do something but had no idea what. Fortunately I knew Dana Carpender through the internet. At that time she was writing this book. Under her guidance (I was a guinea pig, a lot of what she sent me appears word for word in the book) I have lost 25-30 pounds (starting approx. 240, now approx. 210) and held it for over 1 year. This works out to a little over 10% of total body weight which I saw somewhere was a good goal for most Americans to have. I feel great and have lots of energy. In addition, the cholesterol and triglyceride scores are much improved. While not following a strict low carb diet (I'm in her "Careful Carb-eater" category), I have drastically improved the quality of the carbs I do eat, thanks to her guidance. I am exercising more which helps but I think improved nutrition has been the key.
As someone else noted, Dana offers a range of dietary plans, explaining the pros and cons of each. She is realistic about the challenges that changing food habits present. Her explanations are well written in plain language, easy to understand, fun to read and encouraging to boot.
I'm looking forward to the cookbook she promised.
