I have tried the two main low carb diets that are available and though they work, why I should remain on the diet was never fully explained. I read the books, followed the diet plan, and after a tremendous effort, I would eventually go back to the foods I was eating before. After reading Genocide, I now understand WHY I can't eat those foods. Genocide is a no nonsense approach to healthier living through correct nutrition and the application of simple scientific facts. In our society of instant gratification, plentiful amounts of any food, and the ability to buy most anything, sticking to the dietary example of Dr. Carlson is hard, but it is truly worth the effort. I understand the need to keep my distance from sugars and carbs, and because I do I have no problem sticking to the dietary changes offered by Dr. Carlson. Once you read this book, you will want to buy copies for your friends. You could pass on your copy, but then you wouldn't be able to read it again and again.

Format: Paperback
Genocide, a book about eating healthy by avoiding sugar, has a subtitle of "how your doctor's dietary ignorance will kill you!!!!" That quadruple exclamation point gives you an indication of how this book will read.

The first thing to be aware of here is that this book did not go through much editing. Normally I am all in favor of self published books, but the process requires a solid team of "friends" who do the editing for you. It was really missing in this case. You have to be very patient to read through this, past the many errors, the multiple strings of !!!! and !?!? and SHOUTING LANGUAGE and back and forth commentary. It several instances this "technique" of writing makes the actual message very hard to understand.

Even more strange, he left justifies EVERYTHING in the book so the paragraphs all run together, and he has massive spacing between lines making the book much thicker than it needs to be. Does that make the information seem more weighty?

On to the message. Author James Carlson has been a doctor for many years and has always advised his people NOT to follow low carb diets - until he read an actual book about low carb diets and realized just how they work medically. Suddenly he understood that they were about removing sugar from your system, and he realized just how critical that was for his patients. Almost overnight he switched to a low carb diet himself and put all his patients on low carb diets - and saw amazing results.

He explains that cholesterol in the body RARELY comes from eating cholesterol. Most of the time it comes from eating sugar that the body then converts into cholesterol. In the same way, triglycerides don't come from eating fat. They come from eating sugars which get converted in the body.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jim's for 6 years and have been following his advice regarding carbs, fat and cholesterol. I have experienced every benefit he describes in this book (with wit and wisdom mixed with solid facts).I have never been healthier. As a 60 year old grandmother my cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure are all great and I take no medications. Everyone should not only read this book, they should buy it for their families and friends. Share the knowledge. Do it for someone you love!

I am a very new patient of Dr. Carlson's. So new, in fact, that I had no idea this book would be out till I saw a stack in the front office and snagged me one (double co-pay!) out of curiosity about my new doc-guy. I had time over this weekend and read the book. OK, Dr. Jim is somewhat repetitive in his style, but many of us need that. He is also funny, which all of us need. What's better, I agree with him! I have no medical background to speak of, but I have been resisting fad diets and fad findings all my life since, at the age of 10 in my case, butter had been in and out of grace several times. At that point--early rebellion--I decided to eat what I like to eat and skip the rest. Lucky for me, I do not like sweet things. Now I am justified. But I don't like butter either, so where does that leave me... All in all, I am a very healthy, I believe, late-middle-aged woman, and I firmly believe that my good health (apparently I have beat Crohn's...) is due to my diet. Go with Dr. Jim! He rocks! And life is much sweeter without sacrifice, and without a bad conscience!

When you want to get somebody's attention, sometimes that means using language that underscores the severity of a problem. That's precisely what Dr. James E. Carlson has done with his new book. Regardless of your stance about low-carb diets, you owe it to yourself to read this book and learn from a doctor who has seen unbelievable improvements in ALL of his patients who have implemented the low-carb lifestyle into their health routine. The more unhealthy and obese that you are, the better you'll feel when you are livin' la vida low-carb. Whether you have diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, PCOS, or any of hundreds of other health ailments, low-carb could be the answer you've been looking for and Dr. Carlson shares why in this masterful book. If you want to know the truth about why the dietary ignorance of your doctor is leading you on a direct path to the grave, then READ THIS BOOK! You'll be glad you did.
