I lost two stone!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Vegetarian Low-Carb Diet: The fast, no-hunger weightloss diet for vegetarians (Paperback)
Having struggled with ever-increasing weight for several years it was suggested that my problem was carbs - my body seemed to have forgotten how to deal with them normally so they were being stored as fat - eg "Syndrome X". I was sceptical but thought I'd give the diet a try - and chose this book for guidance as I trust Rose Elliot - we had her book "Simply Delicious" way back in the 1970s! Anyway - the results were spectacular - I lost half a stone in about 10 days, and 2 stone in three months. I am not a very imaginative cook, so tend to make the same things over and over, and I am vegan by preference so not everything is possible without dairy, but there are stacks of good ideas. The low carb burgers are fab - and really easy - the jelly is a lifesaver when you want some indulgent comfort food! - and the lasagne using cabage in place of pasta is inspired!

I'd never eat meat even if it was healthier & easier to lose weight.
I'm not sure how healthy your meat diet was since you had 3 stones you needed to lose...

I had three stones to lose because I'd been advised not to eat so much meat and to eat 'healthy' whole grains. As soon as I stopped eating starch, sugar and too much sweet fruit, and ate plenty of fat and protein, I lost the weight I needed to lose; and without killing myself in a gym, or running my knees to rack and ruin.
