- Great price for a dense book packed with years of research.
- Nice size book and has a great text size and font.
- Smooth cover, spilt a few drops of water on it and wiped right off without getting in any pages. I know I was lucky but I was very happy.
Overall Review: Five Stars, Love it, and I recommend it to all.
Easy to read, concise information. Highly recommended if you've been diagnosed with Syndrome X or are diabetic or pre-diabetic. I would also recommend you read this book if you've been struggling to lose weight.
A bought this book a few years ago but gave it away to a friend. When I went off track a bit about 4 years after starting low carb, I bought another copy to renew my knowledge and encourage myself. Lost the weight again. Now I'm not giving this copy away this time!
The only con is that I think it could use a better list of foods rated by glycemic index.
