For today's Americans, it is an obsession. What should I eat? What should I avoid? Which foods should I combine? How do I get "in the zone" or "eat for my type?" We must now choose between "healthy" fats and "unhealthy" fats; "good" carbs and "bad" carbs; and "high glycemic" and "low glycemic." While the formulas for healthful eating increase, so do our waistlines. The perfect example is the low-carbohydrate diet. Since the mid-1990s low-carb diets have made a phenomenal resurgence, led by Dr. Robert Atkins' program, which has been on The New York Times bestseller list continuously for the past five years. But his plan is by no means the only one. Others also are jockeying to take the low-carb crown, including the South Beach Diet, the latest in the low-carb offerings that has pushed its way up the bestseller lists. With this resurgence, many Americans are now avoiding carbs. For the time being, carbs appear to be the "enemy" in many people's minds and stomachs. We emphasize "for the time being" because when it comes to diets, nothing lasts forever. Americans went through a similar obsession with carbohydrate avoidance a few decades ago, when many low-carb diet books topped the bestseller lists in the 1960s and 1970s-including the original version of Atkins' low-carb diet. Despite their popularity, low-carb diets had virtually no measurable effect on our waistlines-the weight of the average U.S. adult at the end of '70s was essentially the same as it was at the start of the previous decade. It seems that a diet limited to primarily protein and fat was not the answer after all. And when it comes to dieting, it seems Americans cannot resist a fad. But no matter what the latest fad diet claims, the bottom line is calories-regardless of type-do count. Unfortunately, Americans seem to have found out the hard way. It's the Calories, Not the Carbs was written in part to clarify this point and set the record straight. It also was written to show you that eating well-and living well-is about giving yourself the best possible intake of nutrients to allow your body to be as healthy as possible and to work as well as it can. It is getting the nutrients your body needs for optimal mental performance and emotional balance. It is not a set of rules. Your body's needs and health goals are completely unique and depend on a whole host of factors-from the strengths and weaknesses you were born with, to the effects your current environment has on you. No single way of eating is perfect for everyone, although there are general guidelines that apply to us all. Whether your personal health goal is to lose weight, maintain your current weight, become more active, have more energy, or just improve your overall health and fitness-this guide will show you how to use the Food Guide Pyramid, listen to your body, and become more active to make lasting, healthful lifestyle changes for health and wellness ...and to say goodbye to fad diets of all types for good.

Interested in keeping the weight off for good? Looking for a Low-Carb cookbook to help you start and sustain a healthy lifestyle? A Low-Carb Diet is a form of nutrition in which you mainly consume protein and also fat. It is less about the calories in the Low-carb Diet than about the fact that it replaces carbohydrates with proteins. Carbohydrate intake is reduced. There are two types of Carbs: Complex carbs, aka "good" carbs, are those that are nutrient-rich and positively fuel the body. Examples of complex carbs are root vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Simple carbs often referred to as "bad" carbs, are those that offer minimal nutritional value. The examples would be potatoes, rice, sugar, fruit juices, corn syrup, soda, and prepackaged sweet treats. When "bad" carbs are overconsumed, it may increase blood sugar levels. That is because the body can digest the simple carbs more quickly than it can do with the more complex "good" carbs. Besides, if an excess of carbs is consumed, the body will eventually break them down and store them as fat. One benefit of the Low-carb Diet is that it is simply healthier for the human body to consume fewer carbohydrates because sugar is not healthy and because a high-carbohydrate diet leads to obesity. Another advantage is that the blood sugar level falls or remains constantly low. You can prevent the widespread disease diabetes with this form of nutrition. Better eating is easier with the Low-Carb Diet that has the simplicity and variety you'll be addicted to.

For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. Called “a very important book,” by Andrew Weil and …” destined to change the way we think about food,” by Michael Pollan, this groundbreaking book by award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.

The South Beach Diet is a diet that replaces "bad fats" and "bad carbs" with "good fats" and "good carbs." This diet uses the glycemic index and requires dieters to eat complex carbohydrates that digest slowly in the body instead of simple, refined sugars that require little energy to be burned in the body. A journal is very beneficial to those on this diet to record daily food consumption. A journal makes it easier to calculate carbs and fats while helping the dieter realize their daily food intake.
