It's tough but sugars and carbs are hidden everywhere, even in sauces like soy sauce and marinades. At first, you have to read every label and look up random foods on MyFitnessPal to know their carb count.(less)

This is a very simple read and it explains the basics of the diet well. You also get a glimpse into why other diets may not be working for you. However, the book is in sore need of an update and the author has promised one in mid-2014.

If you are already familiar with low carb dieting and the way it works, most of the information included in the book will not be new to you. In that case, it may be more worth your while to just visit the author's website/blog and glean what information you can on

I actually started this diet not having read the book. My son and his friend have been doing this diet with results that are astounding. My son has always worked out and been very active so has always been in pretty good shape. When he incorporated this diet into his life his body transformed. Muscles and abs much more defined very noticeably. He obviously was losing the fat from his body that hindered those results before. I decided to give it a try and have lost 23 lbs in 4 weeks. The first 10 ...more

I'd encourage anyone who is truly looking for an easy way to get healthy to not only read this book, but consume any information you can that is produced by the author, John Kiefer. This guy has a true knack for sniffing out the latest truths about diet and exercise. You'll be shocked to learn how much of what we were taught about nutrition by the health associations, and government that is flat out wrong. He'll not only make sense of cutting edge health science, he's not afraid to adjust his po ...more

Very, Very, Interesting Read. I appreciated how it shoots down many common diet ideals. Not I am going to give it a try. If it works well it will go to 5 stars!

Very well written, and TONS of citations. John Kiefer is a Physicist... this may not make him an expert in diet and nutrition, but it does make him very good at research. He has taken the ultra-low carb approach to dieting and added what he claims to be an essential piece: 1 night a week of carb indulgence. He explains in great detail why this works, and again, cites everything (the citation appendix in the book is some 50 pages long).

The other great thing about this book is that he makes it ver

After almost 9 months on a ketogenic diet I'm ready to mix it up a bit. After hearing Keifer on a few podcasts I decided I should give him my money so I could read this book. It's a bit outdated and I hope he updates it eventually. Honestly, I think I could have figured out how to do carb nite by spending an hour in some forums but I'm a sucker for a book.

Recommended to Dawn by: sister in law
I believe that this diet will work for me due to all the research put into the theory. I know of someone who has been using this method now for 6+ months and has lost weight. The information given to guide you along on this diet is very helpful and gives you many examples to go by. A book many people who want to loss weight should read. Granted you don't loss weight at a rapid pace but one that will help you keep off what you do lose. Al said I have not finished the book as I don't think one can ...more
