The Complete Guide
To Long-Term Low-Carb Dieting
As many enthusiasts have discovered, it's easy to lose weight on the low-carb diet. But keeping the weight off requires an ongoing commitment--not an easy feat when faced with dieting drudgery, dinners out, holiday gatherings, and demoralizing eating binges. While many low-carb diet books offer the initial thrill of weight loss, this book is a lifelong manual, offering tips and guidance to keep readers committed for the long haul.
Author Fran McCullough starts with "secret weapons" (such as blocking sugars, cleansing the liver, and keeping a food diary), must-haves in any long-term dieter's arsenal. She also offers a valuable "Troubleshooting" section that covers commons challenges, such as dinner invitations ("Come on over for Dinner") and binge eating ("Blowing It"). She addresses the persistent snacking problem with a list of low-carb delights (including shrimp with guacamole or prosciutto and melon).
She even lists alternative foods for the times when you crave disaster foods. (For example, a craving for pizza can be satisfied with grilled eggplant, mozzarella cheese, and oregano.) The second half of the book is devoted to McCullough's specialty--tasty and satisfying low-carb recipes, such as Buffalo Boys Chili and Berry and Mango Compote
Here is the secret to achieving long-term success on a low-carb diet. With foolproof strategies for controlling binges and cravings, invaluable tips on eating in restaurants, guidelines for dealing with sudden weight gain, and more than 175 delicious new recipes, LIVING LOW-CARB is a godsend for the millions of American dieters now dedicated to the low-carb lifestyle.
