But that is what some would like to characterize it as. You have to wonder about their motivations? They just want to write something (anything)? They are paid by the sugar industry somehow? It's hard to know.
If you want to understand low carb diets, you have to read the book. You have to learn how to determine 'net carbs' from product labels. You have to recognize when some labels make absolutely no sense re their sugar amounts (and to stay away from them). There are so many things (that taste good!) that work on a low carb diet. You have to put the work into it to discover them and cook them.
So join the club! The more of us that demand mfg make things with less carbs (NO ADDED SUGAR!!) the better, it would make our lives easier and vastly more healthy! I'm very happy to now have this book on my kindle. Wouldn't be without a copy, ever.
About 20 years have passed since he wrote it, so some small bits of his advice have been outdated. Mostly, he was still recommending a little more fruit and the grains that we no longer do in Keto today, but the understanding of the biochemistry of ketosis one gains in reading this tome far, far outweighs that minor bump. Eades rocks it!
