Default Thank you Stephen

Thank you for your review of "Life without Bread"
I have been reading about the Atkins Diet, but could not entertain the idea of dieting without fruit, which I eat at least five pieces of a day. Life without bread I can gear more to my natural high levels of fibre. I love all vegetables, my favourite being spinach.
I am off to order this book, because it looksa like a life time commitment for me rather than a diet

hi there,

Click the link in the very first post in this thread, or choose "Plans" from the green menu bar at the very top of the page; you'll find it there.

Unhappy dead?

Thing is, this guy died of a stroke in June or July 2004. I know because I used to go on his site all the time...I guess it scares me a little because I don't even think he was 45 years old...your thoughts anyone?

hi Chantal,

His stroke was due to side-effect from the drugs he was taking for HIV .. it had nothing to do with low-carbing. You can read more information and discussion about this here .. Dr. Stephen Byrnes dies suddenly.


hth,

Doreen

And Dr. Lutz, author of Life Without Bread, is 92 this year, and doing a seminar on low-carb in Switzerland this month. He's been low-carbing since the 50's. Nothing scary about that...

Life Without Bread has some great discussions of the physiology behind low-carb, in layman's terms. Protein Power did the same thing. I'm starting a low-carb book collection!
