Has anyone read Living Low-Carb: The Complete Guide to Long Term Low-Carb Dieting ?
 
Curious to get the LCF take on this book, if anyone has read it.

I guess no one has read it.

I'm getting it from the library. They have it on the web for less than a dollar, but I'd rather not spend the money on shipping if it's not really going to be helpful.

I'll post a review to this thread.

Is it the one by Jonny Bowden? If so, I have it. I haven't read it all the way thru just skimmed (my mom buys every low carb book she see while at garage sales)
From the little I have read it seems to recap most of the lower carb diets and gives the histoy of low carb.

No, it's by Fran McCullough. I've got it waiting for me at the library.:)

I just read it. It was definitely worth reading if you can get it from the library. It had some new information in it, even if you've read DANDR a thousand times and read Protein Power. The recipes looked pretty good and a lot were very low carb. I hate low carb cookbooks where one serving of a dish is "only" 26 grams of carbs. The author is a cookbook writer and food writer, so she certainly has dealt with serious challenges to staying on a low carb diet. Her son is a Type I diabetic, so she really gets how important accurate information and sticking to the low carb WOE is.

I'm going to reread it and decide whether to get a used copy or not.
