Whoa! Just read this book and I must say that it makes the most sense out of anything I have ever read on the subject of nutrition. I didn't buy it for its recipes -either..One glance at the two sample recipes and you could tell that the publisher goofed! But the author's insights on the proper role of fats, healthy proteins and long lasting carbs were so brilliant. I think this book should be required reading for every teenager, women, and man out there. It says it all and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand it, either. I have lost 30 pounds on the lower carbohydrate diet plans. The 40/30/ 30 Phenomenon explains why, how, and where to go from here. I give this book 5 stars.
