Low Carb Diets Often Work… Even When Starvation Diets Crash and Burn. It's Crazy But True. Here's the Nuts and Bolts on Low Carbing from Someone Who's Lived This Life Successfully and Talked to the World's Most Respected Low Carb Experts...
Dear Confused Dieter,
You've heard "good things" about low carb diets.
For one, they can lead to serious weight loss, even after traditional low calorie plans fail. As someone who lost 15 pounds doing low carb -- and who's kept it off effortlessly for 4 years -- I can attest that being slim and never hungry is pretty amazing.
At the same time, you're scared, dubious… maybe evenoutright cynical .
After all, the low carb message clashes mightily with the received wisdom about what constitutes a "healthy" diet.
For instance… we've all been taught that eating fat will make us fat and clog our arteries. Yet dietary fat serves as the primary fuel on properly formulated low carb diets!
Likewise, we've been told we need to eat SOME carbs -- the so-called "good carbs" -- for energy. Most of us agree that ice cream and potato chips aren't great. But isn't it a tad extreme to put the kibosh on wild rice and whole grain bread?
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Hi Adam - I really enjoyed your book and read it in one sitting.
Author of Strong Kids Health Kids and The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution (co-authored with Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades)
Adam Kosloff's Low Carber's Survival Guide is a wonderful resource for those of you who are still riding the low carb fence and want simple, easy to understand and straight forward advice on how to incorporate low carb living into your high carb life. Two thumbs up!
Thank you very much… awesome material.
And even if you understand/buy into the science, your challenges have just begun! You see, we are all trapped in a "high carb" world.
All of our favorite foods (with the possible exception of bacon!) are chock full of carbs: cakes, cookies, freshly baked bread, pasta, french fries, etc. Name your 10 most favorite foods. Dollars to donuts, they're all carb-o-licious.
Carbs are yummy. They're everywhere. And most people are addicted to them. As in literally addicted, physiologically.
As if that wasn't enough…
Our public health authorities, doctors, neighbors and friends are constantly admonishing us to load up on fattening carbohydrates and skip out on healthy fats. Those who dare to flout this advice are a forgotten minority, without a political party, a celebrity spokesperson or any real voice.
Few of us want to be "dietary rebels."
Yet we DO want to be healthier and slimmer.
Thus, we face a paradox. If low carb is the way to go, as the science seems to suggest, then how do we navigate our confusing environment?
Don't you wish there was a single resource that could simplify things for you -- explain the basics in clear language and give you easy to follow guidelines?
Clarifying all the main sources of confusion about low carb diets… and resolving any doubts you may have about the science… in just 14 pages.
Slashing your grocery bill by 15% or more... while eating healthier… without giving up the foods you love.
Saving TONS OF TIME making, eating, and cleaning up from your meals.
Reviewing battle-proven, reference-heavy Low Carb Talking Points to cement your knowledge of these diets… and to help those around you understand, too.
Discovering a life-changing answer to that age-old question: What's the best exercise program to go with your diet? (This insight alone will rock your world -- it certainly did mine.)
Finding a solid blueprint for how to deal with tricky low carb etiquette problems -- applicable to virtually ANY situation.
Discovering winning strategies to break through carb cravings... for good.
Uncovering -- at last! -- a clear explanation for why low carb may NOT give you good results... and finding surprising resources to kick start weight loss again.
Tapping into awesome methods for breaking through the info-overload that makes researching about weight loss so time-consuming and confusing.
What if you could find one simple, clear, compact guide that contained all these resources -- and dozens more? How great would that be?
Introducing... The Low Carber's Survival Guide
My name is Adam Kosloff. I am a Yale University graduate (B.S. in geophysics) and low carb enthusiast and author. I got into the world of low carbing in 2007, after I read science journalist Gary Taubes' best-seller, Good Calories Bad Calories. Taubes' book inspired me to create the blog www.caloriegate.com as well as a 200+ page website, www,why-low-carb-diets-work.com, to spread the word about an alternative theory about weight loss that decisively implicates carbohydrates as the primary cause of obesity.
If this theory is correct, then most overweight people should probably be doing something like low carb... ASAP!
The Low Carber's Survival Guide aims to help YOU understand the low carb basics and live this lifestyle cheaper, faster, and easier... with less stress and more success.
Author of Cereal Killer
Just finished the Taubes interview; a really great piece. Thoughtful, personal and compelling debate as well. From one contrarian to another, congratulations for moving ahead on your truly great e-book.
Livin' La Vida Low Carb blogger, from the foreward to The Low Carber's Survival Guide
With so many voices telling you what's right, what's wrong, and how you should be eating and exercising, don't you wish you had a teacher who could clearly explain it all to you in language that is understandable? Well, now you do. His name is Adam Kosloff.
5 Reasons to Get The Low Carber's Survival Guide...
Whether You're a Total Low Carb Newbie… Or You Haven't Had a Slice of Bread Since the Reagan Years!
1. The LCSG will educate you about low carb science in clear, vivid language.
Are you confused about whether low carb is a fad diet? Are you dubious of the suggestion that eating fat could be good for you? This eBook demystifies many myths that needlessly scare dieters away.
2. This guide can save YOU time, money, and hassle.
Admit it. Wouldn't your life be worlds easier if you didn't have to constantly obsess over the time and money you spend on your diet journey? This guide can help with that!
3. Makes the complicated simple.
I have boiled down a lot of crazily technical stuff for you... and put it all in one place for easy reference.
4. Two amazing bonuses... which we shall talk about shortly!
5. New ideas, new hypotheses, new ways of thinking about old problems.
For instance, here is an example of what you'll get -- a cool metaphor that teaches the concept of the Paleolithic Diet, which underpins the low carb approach:
Let's translate years into feet. So we will compress every 1,000 years of human history into a single foot -- the length of a ruler.
Since the Era of the Paleolithic Diet lasted about ~2,500,000 years, it translates to about 2,500 feet: the equivalent of 2 Empire State Buildings stacked on top of each other. The Era of the Agrarian Diet has lasted about ~10,000 years: the equivalent of a tall man extending his arms over his head. And the Era of Refined Sugars and Carbohydrates has lasted about ~200 years: the equivalent of the height of an iPhone.
I want you, in your mind, to envision two Empire State Buildings stacked on top of each other. Then envision resting your iPhone at the base of that super-skyscraper. THAT should give you some idea of the scale -- some idea of the mismatch.
The takeaway: the Paleolithic diet -- whatever that was -- surely must be the "real" human diet.

just wanted to tell you that I think the book is awesome. I especially enjoyed your conversation with Gary Taubes at the end. This whole concept of calories-in-calories-out not actually having anything to do with weight loss makes so much sense, and as you say in the book, it's groundbreaking information.

Think about it this way. Even if you save just 30 minutes a week preparing your meals... how much is 30 minutes of your time worth to you? If you earn $30/hour, you will "make up" the cost of the book in the first week.
Or say you save only $5 a week using the money saving tips... that means you more than make up for the cost of the book in just a month!
