The book, which was being reviewed on the Oprah show at the time, was most certainly an 'Aha!' moment for me. The logic of carb addiction makes LOTS of sense to me. It explains sooo many things from the way I think about and relate to food. Now, not everyone is a carb addict and just because someone follows a low carb plan doesn't mean they are carb addicted BUT they way some people react to carbs is spelled out in the book and they (the Drs. who wrote the book) they certainly have nailed it!
I never did the 'reward meal' diet as they detailed it but when I follow LC I use the idea of the equal portions on the plate WHEN and IF I decide to have a once-in-a-great-while, planned cheat meal. I found the balance didn't trigger the major carb cravings and the planned cheat helped me get right back on plan.
Just my 2 cents.
