It’s Time to Rethink “Diet” Reduce your carb intake with my new book, Eat Right, Not Less.

December 11, 2017

Almost 150 million people have adopted a low carb approach to eating in some form, and there are those that would suggest that a “diet” is a temporary solution and not sustainable for some individuals. I am far more interested in changing your entire mindset about eating and food so that you can manage your weight and appetite, improve your health, have steady energy levels, sleep better and embrace a variety of food choices. This is why I’m excited to share with you my latest book, Eat Right, Not Less: Your Guidebook for Living a Low-Carb and Low-Sugar Lifestyle. This book goes beyond  “diet” and demonstrates the potential of doing Atkins on your terms.  And that was my goal when I wrote it. Studies show that the type of food you eat has a more significant effect on your health (and your waistline) than cutting calories. Gone are the days of feeling deprived. Instead, with this book, I’m excited to show you how to manage your portions (and hunger) naturally with protein-rich foods like fish, poultry, lean meats, nuts, and yogurt, as well as eggs and cheese, in combination with high-quality, high-fiber carbohydrates such as fresh vegetables nuts, and low-glycemic fruits, while avoiding refined grains, starches and sugar. I also introduce you to the Hidden Sugar Effect, and the powerfully negative impact it can have on your health and waistline and how to avoid it.

 The Inside Scoop on Atkins 100

Whether you need a more structured plan or just want to make small changes to the way you eat, I’ll show you how to do Atkins your way, tailored to your terms. You may be familiar with Atkins 20® and Atkins 40®. These proven plans have worked well for many people (you may have experienced results firsthand). You’ll learn even more about these plans in Eat Right, Not Less, but I also introduce Atkins 100™. Did you know that the average person consumes 251 to 300 grams of carbs in a day, and may not even realize it? Just one in three Americans understand that you should eat 100 grams of carbs or less in a day; Atkins 100 allows you to make small changes to your eating habits by cutting back to 100 grams of Net Carbs a day. It’s that simple. As with Atkins 20 and Atkins 40, here’s what else you do:

 Eat a minimum of 12 to 15 grams of Net Carbs a day of Foundation Vegetables. (You’ll budget remaining 85 grams of Net Carbs from the complete Acceptable Foods List.)

  • Eat three 4- to 6-ounce servings of protein a day.
  • Eat two to four servings of added fat a day.

 No matter which way you choose to do Atkins, this low carb and low sugar nutritional approach is indeed a better way to eat.

 Eat Right, Not Less with 100 Low Carb and Low Sugar Recipes

This book also features 100 delicious low carb and low sugar recipes, including holiday favorites, meals in minutes, slow-cooker entrees, brunch and date night dinners. This is eating right, not less.

If you want to give yourself (and maybe even your friends and family) the gift of health this year, I’d suggest you order a copy.

 Here’s a tasty sneak peek of one of the recipes from Eat Right, Not Less:
