If you want the diet details alone, read my review
on July 25, 2011
This book wasn't what I thought it would be. But don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the scientific research that Gary Taubes brought to the forefront on the reason why low fat, high carb diets don't work. They may work for some people, but I gain weight on that type of eating. And I really appreciate the research Mr. Taubes has done concerning weight loss.
If you are into the science behind low carbing, buy this book - this book is probably the best out there. Otherwise, Google the following - making sure you use Google as your search engine because I tried other search engines and this doesn't come up in the results. As of the date I wrote this review, it should be the first result in the Google search. Type in "17 dots no sugar no starch" and you will get a 13 page PDF file to print out with all the information on the diet, without the research that goes into how it works. It's a PDF file with the title "WHY WE GET". This is the same diet that's in the Appendix in Taube's book.
