I'm now doing Phase 3 which allows me enough carbs to have my much loved big plate of vegetables as well as making sure I eat enough protein with it. I think this book is a well written introduction to low carb vegetarian eating which can be followed up with some good online info on making this a very healthy diet to follow. I've been vegetarian for over 30 years and had previously read to aim for 24 g protein a day, which I'm not sure I was even getting that most days. I was eating far too much bread, even though it was wholemeal and had sugar cravings that were as bad as when I craved a cigarette and would have me driving to the village shop for chocolate. This diet has really helped me begin to deal with those cravings and overeating in general. I had also been experiencing lots of back and joint problems which I put down to possibly the menopause but since changing to low carb and higher protein (perhaps all the Tofu) I feel tons better, other people have reported this too. I think the overload of carbs I was eating has been causing havoc with my stomach for years and I'd often been glad I work alone because of the large amounts of gas I had but this has improved greatly, thank goodness! I've just ordered Rose's cookbook and I hope I can keep it up now to stop my waist expanding again. Give it a go and if you feel too bad on 20 g per day for Phase 1, go up to 25g or 30g rather than give up entirely. There is a low carb website which has a food pyramid to follow which looks good information to eat 'low carb' in a healthy way.
I've not stuck 100% to the diet, as I found limiting my carb intake to 20g a day for the first 2 weeks a little too strict, but I've still managed to lose 3lb within 2 weeks, I've not had any cravings because I'm eating so well, I even enjoy protein shakes which is something I've never tried before, this is great for breakfast if you are in a hurry or just don't like breakfasts.
I'm no longer hungry all the time and if I am peckish I can eat, so many things like cheese and even cream are included so you never feel like you are dieting, I've also found I have more energy.
