I have lost weight in the past with extreme lowcarb, which works like crazy, but also left me with thinned hair. So that left me concerned about this approach. However, the foods eaten on this plan are not very limited. You really don't need to count carbs, but be conscious of the total calories, and get your calories from nutrient dense food.
So going into the plan, this is what I discovered: When you start eating fibrous, nutrient dense foods, you end up with little room in your diet for empty calories, and little desire for them as well, which is very helpful. If in my day I eat a big apple, a carrot, a salad, some lean chicken, a little oatmeal, a slice of cheese and whole wheat crackers, black bean soup...you end the day quite satisfied.
and you do lose weight. I'm down 17 pounds so far.
Some parts of the audio were more interesting than others, which is the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. I docked the performance stars for pronunciation mistakes, especially inconsistent ones.
It's a very worthwhile book, and if you are ready to give up empty foods or have already done so, this can extend your knowledge of how to eat, and maybe more importantly, how not to eat. Eat to fuel your body and life, and not for comfort, to fill emotional voids, etc.

This is not a diet book. This is not an exercise book. This book is different and better. Tom Venuto takes a multifaceted look at how the average person can achieve the body they want in a realistic way. I'm a hypnotherapist and an Ironman triathlete and I still learned a lot from this book! The narrator is upbeat and engaging. I liked this book so much I bought the paper version to have as a reference. Highly recommended!

This is my 2nd favorite book by this Author. (Burn the fat feed the muscle also by Tom Venuto is newer than this and much better) but no matter how much I have learnt about fat loss, I always come back to reading both books, as it's a great way to keep everything fresh in my mind. Tom always makes a good job of explaining complicated topics like this much easier to palletize, and these books both now being accessible in audio format like this, really helps me to re-listen as many times as I want, right from my iPhone! Well done Tome, and well done Amazon for creating audible for this purpose!

This book has a lot of practical advice on calories and just eating what you need for energy with a lean towards weight based exercise. Basically calories in versus calories out, which most of us probably know this already but it was easy to listen to and great for resetting your mindset allowing for better decision making about food choices. Good book for dipping in and out to keep the mind focused.
