I really keep hoping to like this author's work. But every time it seems like he's on track with the LCHF concept, he then turns around and corrupts it.

LCHF is a specific scientific based process, not what you WANT it to be.

As far as data and research reporte, I would give this book 5-stars. But when the author then inserts his opinions and personal beliefs, it then drops down to a 1-star rating.

And then the whole thing with adding into the book its core aspect of comparing "23 Modern Low Carbohydrate Diets" (Chapter Nine). Yet only two are truly LC (much less LCHF), many are simply butchered modifications of LC (that ruins the concept), and some aren't even remotely LC (to include the Sears Diet by his "very good friend" Barry Sears, whose diet recommends 40% of one's diet to be carbohydrate - that isn't just not LC, it is HIGH carbohydrate... but anything for a dear friend, eh?).

A reader would be MUCH better off (as would this author) to read both "Eat Bacon, Don't Jog" and "Low Carb High Fat Diet Revolution"!!!

The most practical book on the subject that I have read to date. Gives clear explanations of complicated topics that are usually avoided in such books, such as what Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats are biochemically, and why it matters. Also explains why ketosis is not to be feared.
