I have had great success with the Atkins diet. However, once I got into maintenance of Atkins, I would experience slow weight gains. I would recover with a round of induction eating, but something did not seem quite right. Reading this book helped me understand the source of my yo-yo weight behavior, how hunger and satiety is determined in the human body, and provided a clearly written guide for testing which carbs were my triggers followed by a sensible and simple to follow program to remediate sensitivity to the foods triggering my cravings and weight gain.
Along with the diet and recipe suggestions were great guidelines for supplements both from her private label and alternative brands, which I could purchase locally or order from Amazon. Another nice features of this book are the well illustrated strength training exercises you can do at home and advice on vegetarian and vegan alternatives for the program. I only have one improvement suggestion for this book: that green/non-starchy vegetables are eaten with every meal should be noted on the daily meal plan pages in addition to being documented on the summary page for each phase.
In summary - this program works! If you have used Atkins, South Beach or other low-carb diets and need further fine-tuning to maintain ongoing weight loss beyond the induction phase this is your go-to book.
