Other reviews explain the gist of this book: Carbohydrates make you fat and sick; remove carbs from your diet and you’ll lose weight and feel better.
This “review” is my personal experience with this diet regimen that began on March 10, 2016. As of today, June 22, 2016, I have lost 30 pounds. (I am a 60-year-old man; my height is 5’7″.) I eat three eggs and four slices of turkey bacon (fried in coconut oil) every morning with a few cups of decaf. I don’t use cream in my coffee. The rest of my food intake consists of poultry, meat and fish. And salads/vegetables with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard. I stopped drinking wine. I lost 10 pounds the first two weeks and then … nothing.

This is precisely when most people give up and proclaim “This doesn’t work.” I was about to do the same but I recalled a passage late in Taubes’s book in which he says, in effect, every BODY is different and it might take months, even years, for YOUR body to repair itself after a lifetime of eating carbohydrates. So I stuck it out and after six weeks, I lost a pound or two every two or three weeks. Then the weight loss would plateau and nothing would happen for a week or two. Then, more weight loss.
So my advice to you is to BE PATIENT with this “lifestyle.” It might take YOUR body months to lose the weight you want. Be patient, this diet does indeed work. Good luck. (And BTW, the beauty of this diet is that you’re never hungry and you never feel deprived.)
