This book is one you will want to keep next to your bed to reread certain parts that speak to you. Dixie shares her information in a "been there, done that" style that is informative and enlightening. Great buy!
I have been following Dix around the internet for a number of years now. I always knew she had the key to this low carb puzzle and this book reveals it. I read this book constantly putting her many principles to work immediately. This is not a book about the actual low carb diet, it is about how to overcome the obstacles that get in the way of sticking to it. How to not beat yourself up over and over and feeling like a low life because you can't stick to it. She helps you to examine your feelings of why that happens and how to change your mindset. I like her term "Weight Loss Zen" and how when you hit that spot, you will see the light, so to speak.
So if you have ever struggled with your diet plan, whether it is low-carbs or low-fat or low-calorie, I think this book would help anyone with facing the demons that keep them from sticking to it. I know it has helped me and I am doing much better after reading this book, even though I follow her Low Carb Zen page on Facebook and go to the website. She has a way of writing that is like she is sitting right next to you. I love her easy humor which makes reading the book enjoyable. Thank you Dixie for writing this book that I kept expecting from you.
I highly recommend this book for everyone on the low carb journey.
I love Dixie's approach to eating healthy. I love her inspiration and her encouragement. She is beautiful inside and out. I can so relate to her struggles now and then.
