When Jonny Bowden came out with the original edition of this, called Living The Low Carb Life, I called it "the book I keenly wish I had written myself." I reiterate that statement, in spades. This book does what I was trying to do with How I Gave Up My Low-Fat Diet and Lost 40 Pounds (Revised and Expanded Edition), only far better. If you're confused by all the different low carb plans out there, want to know how they differ and what principles tie them together, if you want help figuring out which of the various approaches is for you, this is the book you need. It's smart, it's entertaining, it's thorough. Read it.
