About the Author
Barry Groves, who lives with his wife, Monica, in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, can rightfully claim to be Britain's leading exponent of the low-carb way of life as he has lived on, researched, lectured and written about it for well over 40 years. He and Monica were overweight from 1957 to 1962, when he discovered the low-carb regime for weight loss. It worked: they haven't been overweight since.This started his questioning of conventional diets. As a consequence he took up full-time research into the relationship between diet and 'diseases of civilisation' such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. As a result of his researches, he realised that the perceived wisdoms, both of low-calorie dieting for weight loss and 'healthy eating' for the control of heart disease, were seriously flawed. Now an award winning international author with a doctorate in nutritional science, Barry has written both popular and more technical books which have been published in countries as far apart as Argentina and Russia, as well as all English-speaking countries. He currently divides his time between researching and writing books, and lecturing to medical professionals and to the food industry about the management and prevention of obesity, diabetes and associated conditions.

I read this book and realized that Dr. Groves speaks to using real food, with the fat, butter, cheese, cream, etc., while cutting back on carbs, sugars, and processed foods. While those points are not new, Dr. Groves focus is directed toward eating more fat - real fat, instead of all the garbage of lowfat butters, margarine, yogurt and everything else that is supposed to make us healthy and comprise the leading causes of heart disease and helping no one.
After only 4 days on Dr. Groves suggested program, my daughter has lost 4 lbs and is hopeful for the first time in 12 years that she will be successful. My mother has lost the same amount and both say that they feel more satisfied on this regiment than they ever have on any other program and thus eating significantly less food. When one is satisfied, one will take in less calories and subsequently lose weight. My daughter stated that she has more energy, and my mother is more than thrilled with the results and has said that this is something that she can stick with to see if it will really work. Of course, the weight loss they have achieved of course includes some water, but when neither of them have been able to lose anything, water or otherwise, one can imagine their joy is seeing the scales move for whatever reason.
For years now, we've all been inundated by the use of the food pyramid and what has it yielded - a nation of fat people. One point of interest is that the food pyramid that has been touted as the way we, as humans should eat, is the same food plan utilized for fattening cows and pigs for market. Are we getting the connection?
For those people who have stated that Dr. Groves book is yet another replay of the Atkins plan, please read the book more closely, and pay special attention to the overall concept, which states that one should limit carbs to approximately 60 per day, eat moderate amounts of protein and focus on the intake of real fat, which triggers the satisfaction synapses in the brain that will limit intake and result in weight loss. Let me underscore, this is NOT just another low-carb program. This book strikes at the core of the weight loss mystery and that is message in the brain that screams for more food when we are not satisfied. Good fats in our diets make us feel satisfied and when we feel satisfied, we stop eating and lose weight.
Of all the diet programs that my family has tried, this is the ONLY one that has helped by mother and my daughter who have both struggled all their lives with weight. They ate according to the "healthy" eating program and exercised, only to continue to gain weight and lose their health. Dr. Groves' has given two ladies a new lease on life in a very short period of time and I am very grateful that I have found this book.
Take the time, give it a try and celebrate the success.
FAT IS GOOD FOR YOU! Le't say that again.... Fat is good for you; for your waistline and for your health. Oh how refreshing to be able to not only say it but to eat it!
Carbs are the enemy, not fat. Cut the carbs and indulge in good, healthy fats like REAL cream, REAL butter, coconut oil, REAL cheese and the tender, flavorful and juicy cuts of FAT-marbled meats.
Wait till you eat this way and find that not only are you satisfied, but that you have more energy, a smaller waistline and better health. All this and REAL food too! Be prepared to throw out chemical-laden, processed, fake, low-fat, low-flavor Frankenfoods and dine on sumptuous REAL food that is healthy and natural.
Thank you Dr. Groves for 'sticking to your guns' as we say in America and not allowing the truth to be squelched by bigger dieting fads and fashions. You are a gem!
The truth is in the studies and the results..and anyone interested in REAL health and REAL dieting results would be remiss if they did not absorb every word of this book as well as put it into practice in their life. You have nothing to lose except weight and ill health and everything to gain... great tasting food and a healthy lifestyle you can EASILY follow for life!
GREAT book! TEN STARS!
