    DescriptionThis is a non-technical account of low carbohydrate living. It explains why it works, the 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. It includes 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. It gives readers the tools to create a way of eating that will fit their body, mind, and lifestyle - helping them stay slim, energetic, and healthy for life.

    Author Information
    Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say "You can't eat that way long-term." Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, "What's for supper?" To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of CarbSmart Magazine at http: //www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. She launches her internet radio show, Dana's Low Carb For Life, on Labor Day 2010. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed
