Author Fran McCullough starts with "secret weapons" (such as blocking sugars, cleansing the liver, and keeping a food diary), must-haves in any long-term dieter's arsenal. She also offers a valuable "Troubleshooting" section that covers commons challenges, such as dinner invitations ("Come on over for Dinner") and binge eating ("Blowing It"). She addresses the persistent snacking problem with a list of low-carb delights (including shrimp with guacamole or prosciutto and melon). She even lists alternative foods for the times when you crave disaster foods. (For example, a craving for pizza can be satisfied with grilled eggplant, mozzarella cheese, and oregano.) The second half of the book is devoted to McCullough's specialty--tasty and satisfying low-carb recipes, such as Buffalo Boys Chili and Berry and Mango Compote. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
