Book Description

Eat More. Weigh Less. Live Longer.

Celebrated nutritionist Tanya Zuckerbrot knows that when it comes to losing weight, addition is better than subtraction. Her secret? Add the Miracle Carb to your diet so you don't need to subtract delicious, satisfying foods.

The Miracle Carb is dietary fiber, and chances are you don't get the recommended daily requirement, even if you're eating a healthy diet. Tanya introduced the world to fiber with the F-Factor Diet, and thousands of people have lost countless pounds, improved chronic conditions like diabetes, and gained more energy and vigor for living. And they did it all without sacrificing their lifestyles or the foods and drinks they love.

With The Miracle Carb Diet, Tanya is making it easy for you to jump right into living life the F-Factor way. This not just an eating plan; it is a simple and effective action plan for achieving your best self without disrupting your best life. Tanya's here to help you lose weight fast, and then keep it off!

You'll discover:
- The four easy stages of the Miracle Carb Diet-you could lose up to 12 pounds in the first month!
- Suggested fiber-rich foods and menu plans ideal for each stage, plus recommendations for eating out and enjoying cocktails from day one.
- More than 100 original recipes and shopping lists and templates for journaling for better results.
- Tanya's inspiring anecdotes, case studies, and tool kits for defense against specific food cravings and obstacles, plus super sidebars, tips, tricks, and more to help motivate and inform.

The Miracle Carb Diet is a life-changing plan that's enjoyable, flexible, and doable, based on Zuckerbrot's extensive clinical experience as well as her in-depth knowledge of cutting-edge food and nutrition science. So go ahead and raise a glass to the Miracle Carb Diet (yes, you can enjoy that wine guilt-free) and celebrate the miracle of fiber that lets you eat more, weigh less, and even add years to your life.

Editorial Reviews

"When it comes to no-nonsense dieting, Tanya's got the steak and the sizzle. I'm a satisfied client and huge fan because it works without compromising my lifestyle." (Donny Deutsch, advertising executive and TV personality)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best plan for me! May 6, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book easy to follow. I lost 7 lbs in the first 2 weeks following very closely the menus suggested . Now I am much more careful at the grocery store and have a better understanding of what I should eat and how to get by with just the same amount of food but better choices to lose weight at the same time. The book was also helpful at what to look for in reading food labels and what really works for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another carb diet book August 30, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Have to say, I had high hopes that maybe this would be helpful, however, the carb restriction is just too difficult to do. Made me get out my copy of THE SKINNY CARBS DIET.....both the need to get more FIBER in our diets. This book links the carbs and fiber so that on week one (hate that were you go through stages) you get a NET carb of 35. TRUST me that is really nigh unto impossible! I have always eaten a high fiber diet, so figured I could jump ahead, however the net carbs are still insane. If you have followed South Beach, or Atkins, you might find this helpful. But for me....I have never lost fast anyway, and though this promises that, it is via LESS carbs... The SKINNY CARBS DIET has you getting in RESISTANT carbs (ones that pass through basically undigested) if you understand that, you could make this work. But for me.....I wll keep my Kindle version, but sending back the BOOK copy! Sorry....

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Diet May 12, 2015
By kk
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Love this book and diet as carbs are my enemy. Losing inches quickly and always full/never hungry on this diet. This is now my new lifestyle vs a diet because it is so easy to follow and adapt to in everyday life. I carry the high fiber crackers everywhere I go and order the crackers from Walmart "online" - not found in their stores. The crackers are not expensive and you will need to order a case because Tanya uses them in all here recipes. TIP-these crackers also can be purchased as "granules" online at another website (just search it and it will come up). Be sure to shop prices as they vary. The granules are convenient to have (I order 6 bags at a time) because unless you have a powerful blender (i.e. Vitamix) or a food processor chopping up the crackers will be a small task.

I love this book as it has recipes, log sheet to copy/use, examples of daily menu to follow, info to contact her if needed. I am a nurse practitioner and always focused on healthy lifestyle/weight. Not sure why this diet was not made more public because it works and is sustainable. I recommend it to my patients, family, and for my own personal use. Give it a good try - at least 4 wks to see some results. Ladies need to take all their "measurements" before the start of this diet because women may lose inches before wt (don't get depressed if the scale doesn't move for the first couple of weeks because your clothes may be the first noticable area of weight loss). I have more energy, stamina, feel great in the morning, NEVER ANY CONSTIPATION, and never hungry.

Give it a try as you have nothing but weight to lose!
