I wrote this book in 2010 after twelve years of maintaining a successful and trouble-free low carbohydrate lifestyle.

I revised it September 4 2020 while I was writing "A Well-Engineered Diet and Cookbook."

I have enjoyed twenty-two years in a low carbohydrate lifestyle, maintaining a stable weight, eating great meals, experiencing overall good health, never going hungry, incurring in diet violations when I think it is worth it, staying in ketosis most of the time, having no regrets, and benefiting from an unexpected mental sharpness. I should also mention that I have not experiencied sexual impotence since I hear that some men with Type-2 diabetes might.

I am still reading and learning about nutrition to make sure that this way of eating will also maximize my longevity.

In 2019, at the age of sixty-three, my small pot belly came back and I had to make adjustments to my low carbohydrate lifestyle to eliminate it again. I experimented with low carb low fat (Stillman diet) and low carb high fat (ketogenic diet).

I found out that to lose weight, I had to space out my meals using Intermittent Fasting (IF) and reduce my food intake to only the food that is essential.

At the same time, I had to make sure that I was not deficient in any essential nutrients.

I had to use my knowledge of low carbohydrate diets and my skills as a process engineer to design a diet that I can use the rest of my life.

I am writing this experience in "A Well-Engineered Diet and Cookbook" which will be published December 25 2020 and is currently available for pre-order at a discounted price.
