So I've been wondering what I did wrong. On his blog Jimmy has been quite coy about what he actually eats. So I decided to seek out an actual book that would lay out the mechanics clearly. Jimmy is planning to write one, but it won't be out until 2014. This was the only book I found on Amazon that had LCHF in the title. So I got it.
I skimmed it in about three hours this morning. It is pretty much useless. I wanted a book with recipes and menus. I got a book with rambling stories about his buddies who need to lose weight but haven't tried LCHF yet. There were several chapters that went on and on about cholesterol and saturated fats. (If you want to read a thorough book that tells you everything you need to know about cholesterol, try Jimmy Moore's book, "Cholesterol Clarity" which is available here on Amazon.) That wasn't what I wanted. Finally I got to a chapter titled: "FOOD". Ah-ha, I thought. Now we're getting to it. There were no menus. There were no recipes. He tells us that he eats a lot of eggs. (Unfortunately for me, I'm allergic to eggs.) Then he mentions that sometimes he eats steaks. Then he tells us again that he eats lots of eggs. Sometimes he eats eggs on his steak. Then he tells us that he eats a lot of Thai food. (He lives in Thailand.) He names a number of Thai dishes and tells us how he gets restaurants to modify them to make them low carb. Since there is no Thai restaurant in my town, this information does me no good.
He never mentions protein. I know from Jimmy that when doing LCHF, you need to moderate protein. This guy doesn't seem to know this, or if he does, he doesn't mention it in this book.
Bottom Line: This guy is an enthusiastic amateur. He is an amateur author and an amateur LCHF adviser. At the time he wrote this book, he says he has only been doing LCHF for 18 months.
I don't recommend this book. If you want to learn how to do LCHF, keep searching on the Internet until another book comes out. As popular as LCHF is on the net right now there is bound to be one soon.
My name is Lisa Ann Smith...I have lost 50 lbs on a life altering way to eat forever, LCHF (low carb high fat). The reason why I believe this life altering way to eat is because it is not a diet, it's the way you change your eating habits forever. I am 52 years old and I have done so many "diets" in my life, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers and even the old fashion cabbage patch diet....you name it, I have tried them all. The problem with all of these diets is that you have to eat their frozen entrees or have to count calories, sure you lose weight but after you start eating normal food the weight just comes right back on, it is very discouraging. My Husband, Mike (above review) started on LCHF over 1-1/2 years ago and succeeded! He looks amazing and feels great! I thought it was ridiculous that he could eat so much fat and lose weight! So I decided to try it for myself...I am in menopause (happy, happy, joy, joy) and I started off with the attitude that this would not work for me. Low and behold after about 10 months on the LCHF....IT WORKED!!! My life style of eating has changed forever. Of course you get to cheat now and then but the weight stays off. Eric, you are an amazing inspiration and I thank you everyday for my happy, healthy body that I have at my age. You have truly changed my life and I love you for that! I am so proud of you for writing this book to help all of us learn how to lose weight and feel great! I hope everyone will buy your book and learn from it!
