WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR NEW BOOK:
"Awesome recipes!! This is good for the whole family. So far every recipe I tried is tasty and my family is not aware of the changes!" Hilda Rosa Sainz - review on Amazon.com
And this is what registered dietitians are saying about this dietary program:
"I do agree with your dietary approach. Thanks, and keep doing what you do. I have already downloaded your e-book and have skimmed through it already." Mike G, RD, CD - Fitchburg, WI
"I also believe the low-fat, low-saturated fat myth is harming the public's health and agree that dieting (specifically severe caloric restriction - anything more than a 15% cut from total daily energy expenditure) is doing more harm than good as the body goes into starvation mode, metabolic conservation, and the yo-yo dieting/food obsession begins and continues."
RD from California.
"......you and I are on the same exact page. I teach the same messages that you do, I have been encouraging a modified/ low carb diet for sometime and do not restrict real whole foods, like fat. I call it "carbohydrate management". I have great success with my diabetics and weight loss clients, I teach carb counting to many of them for this reason. I also feel that over consumption of poor carbohydrate/ processed foods are the enemy not fat. ... "
Leah Frazee RD from Newton, PA
