  1. This handy little pocket book was a gift from my husband &has proved invaluable particularly while grocery shopping andrestaurant dining. I keep it in my purse for quick reference & many of my co-workers are now borrowing it during the day to see what they’re eating. A great little book!

    The book was easy to use, especially the way it included listings for fast food. It’s also a great size so you can take it with you anywhere.

  3. After being turned on the the low-carb manner of eating, I researched and read many of the books currently on the market…This book is the most liveable that I have seen…I may lose the weight 2 pounds slower a month with this book verses the Protein Power 30 Carb/per day program, but I can stay on this program for the rest of my life..Thanks again. 14 down, 17 to go!

  4. I recommend this book highly to diabetics. It has carbo counts and fat counts with little hearts next to heart healthy items. There are over 2200 items including fast food and dining out foods. Small enough to fit into a purse or diabetic kit.

  5. This is a great program. Don’t believe people who tell you that carbs don’t make you fat. What they are saying is that carbs don’t make THEM fat. They may not be in the 75% of the population that are addicted to carbs. Try it and see for yourself. If you are not addicted, you will get little benefit, but if you are, it will change your life!

  6. This is the perfect book for all who want to know what is in their food. It can be easily taken to the grocery with you for quick reference. This book also has all the most popular foods so you’re almost sure everything you need is in it. This is a great gift for all who are concerned about their health, and for those who are just interested in what they are eating.

  7. If you are a follower of the Carbohydrate Addict Lifespan Program you will quickly find (as I have) that this booklet is totally unnecessary! The whole idea behind the Carbohydrate Addicts books is that measuring is unnecessary. I would rather save the money for the Carbohydrate Addict’s recipe book.

  8. As a long time low carb dieter, I get my ideal weight and I give away my books and in a decade am needing them again, and suffer through the search period till I am able to find ones that can suit my needs.

    This couple has taught so much about the addictions to carbohydrates that I trust their work as much as I relied on Dr. Atkins, and I recommend their research and solutions to our dependency on carbohydrates to fill voids in our psyche that are often are not realized as a issue.

    This well tended booklet is a snap to locate the item I am in search of and it has even more totals than just carbs which is helpful too. I have a curiosity streak so it suits me fine.

    I hope you order yours… you will be pleased I am certain.
