My Low Carb Story, Diet Book, Cookbook, and Shopping List
A Low Carbohydrate Life, no. 1
I wrote this book in 2010 after twelve years of maintaining a successful and trouble-free low carbohydrate lifestyle.
I updated it on September 4 2020 while I was writing "All Calories Count: A Well-Engineered Diet and Cookbook" and noticed that it could be improved.
I have enjoyed twenty-two years in a low carbohydrate lifestyle, maintaining a stable weight, eating good meals, experiencing overall good health, never being hungry, incurring in diet violations when I thought it was worth it, being in ketosis most of the time, having no regrets, and benefiting from an unexpected mental sharpness. I should also mention I have never experienced sexual impotence since I read some men with Type-2 diabetes do.
I am still reading and learning about nutrition to make sure that this way of eating will also maximize my longevity.
At the age of sixty-three, in 2019, my small pot belly came back and I had to make adjustments to my low carbohydrate lifestyle to eliminate it again. I experimented with low carb low fat (Stillman diet) and low carb high fat (ketogenic diet).
I found out that to lose weight, I had to space out my meals using Intermittent Fasting (IF) and reduce my food intake to only food that is essential.
At the same time, I had to make sure that I was not deficient in any essential nutrients.
I realized I was using my knowledge of low carbohydrate diets and my skills as a process engineer to design a diet that I could use the rest of my life.
I am writing this experience in "All Calories Count: A Well-Engineered Diet and Cookbook" which will be published January 8 2022 and is currently available for pre-order at a discounted price.
Good perspective of a low carb diet.
This is a good book to introduce a low-carb style of living. It gives you information about the science behind the diet and the way the body digests different nutrients. I suggest this book to motivate those of us who need a jump start into low-carb livin'. The book is nice, short, to the point.
It is past my bed time but I couldn't stop reading this! I finished this whole book in about an hour! Your dedication and knowledge are appreciated! This book gave me a lot of knowledge that I will use. I am on a low carb diet but now that you explained how the body works, I am definitely sticking with it! Thankyou!
I enjoyed this quick read and found the restating of mainstream, low carb diet keys easy to follow. My husband has gotten to his goal weight within two months (he dropped 23 lbs). I am a new recruit & look forward to the coming results.
