Drs. Rachel and Richard Heller, authors of the revolutionary New York Times bestselling Carbohydrate Addict's books, are renowned for their ability to motivate readers with their own combined 200-pound weight loss success. Drs. Heller understand the physical and emotional reasons why people struggle to stay on their low-carb diets-or fall off them completely. Now comes the right help at the right time-a plan to put the low-carb dieter back in control-without deprivation-in only a week or less!Holidays, vacation, stress, boredom, and daily emotional wear and tear are all factors that can chip away at the most sincere diet commitment. What starts out as a simple "cheat" often leads to bona-fide failure. In the end most low-carb dieters are left to watch helplessly as their eating spirals out of control and the pounds creep (or rush) back on. Drs. Heller know that once someone has fallen off any low-carb diet, they need help to get back on, and stay on.Now there's a day-by-day, scientifically-based motivating and empowering program that will immediately reduce cravings, satisfy the body's need for carbohydrates, and help low-carb dieters regain control over their eating and their weight.
