5.0 out of 5 stars Good sealing and insulation., 3 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite impressed, the two concentric cylinder design and the double seal are very effective so far at avoiding coffee grounds escaping the filter or the squirting effect of many cafetieres. In the main I'm using it as a cafetiere and pouring into a mug, but today took it in the car and was equally happy.

Insulation seems to be top notch, the body stays cold to the touch and only the rubber lid appears to be a source of heat loss.

The rubber lid is a bit smelly when new, I hope it wears off. Can't say I noticed a taste but it's a little pungent if you're sensitive to that kind of thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Economical source of Magnesium, 3 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reasonably priced basic chemical, does what it says on the pack. Adding it to the bath, making a foot spa, dissolving to make an "oil" spray this is the starting block for getting more Mg into your body. Cramps be gone !

This review is from: That Sugar Film (Amazon Video)
Interesting story of one guy's experiences with his food choices and effect on his body and health. Easy to watch and not too preachy, with good links to historical perspectives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A clear and comprehensive guide to carbohydrate restriction, especially for women., 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed reading this, although it is targeted at women. The author Franziska Spritzler is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator in the USA, Ms Eberstein wrote the foreword and is incorrectly identified as the author here.

There are lots of science references to back up the plain English guidance to eating a restricted carbohydrate diet. The author offers a range of eating options in diet plans with different levels of carb intake rather than the typical "one size fits all" approach.

In general it is well written and offers personal insights and experiences backed up with science.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing alternative to "just eat less and move more", 27 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So good I tried to order it twice ! A concise guide to the alternative view of obesity and weight loss, concentrating on what you eat and the hormonal / biochemical effects. It isn't a science book, but has enough theory to explain itself while providing practical eating, exercise and other tips for effective weight loss.

4.0 out of 5 stars User friendly approach, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the title suggests this is a more user friendly approach to the Atkins approach defined in "New Atkins New You", it contains practical guidance in a simplified form with more pictures and less science.

The science is relegated to a chapter at the back by Dr Jeff Volek which is fully referenced for the curious like me.

The book has been "Anglicised" from its US origins and includes fast food / eatery brands familiar in the UK like Nando's. The vocabulary has also been converted so you won't be confused by cilantro and zucchini (whatever they might be).

Our labelling system is different to the US which means their "net carb" approach is not routinely applicable to our food labels, unlike the previous book (New Atkins New You) this is acknowledged but one can still be left a bit confused by the use of a US label to illustrate the point. We really needed a crystal clear explanation that the "Carbohydrates" on a UK label are the thing the Atkins approach controls - eg 20 grams/day in Phase 1 - and that this is different to the US "Total Carbohydrate" which includes Fiber (sic). So I subtracted one star for this, as it fell a bit short of perfect clarity.

Overall a readable and practical guide to the low carb diet that comes out better than low fat diets in numerous clinical studies.
