tells you what you really need to know. She provides an arsenal
of secret weapons and gives special attention to everyday problems,
such as how to handle impromptu dinner invitations and how to keep

a plane, or traveling abroad.

great low-carb products (including bread). She takes you on a tour
of the world of fake sugars and includes a list of Web sites that
offer more information and support.

for more than a few months eventually finds his or her own way of

a friendly and approachable style. Her tips on common dieting problems
such as avoiding temptation, eating while traveling, finding acceptable
bread substitutes, etc., are quite useful and the recipes are tasty
and not terribly complicated. This volume makes a fine companion
to the author's previous title, the bestselling Low-Carb
