Publishers Description
How I Gave Up My Low Fat Diet and Lost Forty Pounds! is a breezy, chatty, non-technical, fun-to-read explanation of low carbohydrate dieting -- why it works, the surprising health benefits, and most importantly, how to "do" the diet. Or, rather, diets,since the book details three very different main approaches to controlling carbohydrates (including the Basic Low Carb Diet, similar to Atkins or Protein Power, and the Mini-Binge Diet, popularized as The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet), plus several variations, finally summing up the basic principles which tie them all together. The point is to give the reader the tools necessary to construct a new way of eating that will fit his or her body, psyche, and lifestyle, thus allowing them to stay slim, energetic, and healthy for life.

Informative Book  Sep 30, 2008
If you're interested in low carb eating, this book is for you. Informative & easy to read.
my low carb Bible  Feb 20, 2008
I bought this book several years ago when I was stalled on the Atkins diet. It's a life saver, and explains in clear words what's happening on the low carb diet to your body. I give it as a gift to my serious low carb friends, as it continues to help me on a regular basis. Bravo to Dana Carpender for looking at low carb dieting from an intelligent viewpoint!
Gives me ammunition for the naysayers  Jan 16, 2008
I am new to low carbing, and loving it! And this book made all the difference. I tried to plod through the Atkins book, but Dana makes low-carbing so clear and easy. I love being able to use her examples and analogies when other people make assumptions about low-carb eating.
Her great sense of humor is evident throughout, and lightness of her approach makes it seem like I can achieve this. Her breezy but thorough book makes me feel like I have another friend along for the ride.
inspiring  Jan 2, 2008
I've been trying to do low carb for years. Lost 75 pounds when I first tried Atkins. But surgery, a full time job, and someone else cooking for me have caused me to gain back 30 pounds. I am not following a low carb diet closely enough, sometimes not at all. But a recent diagnosis of diabetes has me trying again. Still have the full time job, and someone else still cooks for me. You'd think that would make it easier but she simply won't cook what I want and I have to be more determined in my efforts. This book really explained all the low carb chemistry, explained all the different way to do low carb by giving variations of the diet. I feel inspired to make my voice heard and eat the foods that are good for me.
Good, but...  Oct 28, 2007
Disclaimer: I have not read this book. I read the part that was available here online, and everything I read appears to agree with a good low-carb diet. I just have a book that is much better researched and explains things a little more in dept than this book seems to. It is called "Natural Health and Weight Loss" by Barry Groves. I was very impressed by that book. I bring this up because, in the part of Carpenter's book I read, she talks about Banting and his low carb diet back 150 years ago. She made the point that he was so fat he had to walk downstairs backward or he would "fall over". Not quite true. Actually, he walked backward because it was easier on his knees. He was about 300 lbs. Anyway, that little thing made me think you'd all be better off reading a book with a little more research put into it. Research from numerous scientific studies, not just Atkins books, etc. Go for low carb, I love it, but read Groves' book.
