Gary Zeidman’s book titled Deconstructing Diabetes should be a “must-read” for everyone who has fallen prey to the fallacies of fat being bad for you. (Eating it - that is).

It’s for those of us who are wondering why we can’t lose weight even though we’re “cutting down on the fat.” (Hint: that’s the reason why you can’t lose weight!)
Let me just add here for those of you who are wondering what the heck I’m talking about: In order to LOSE the belly fat ... and the fat thighs, fat arms, and fat bum ... we need to cut way back on carbohydrates. Why? So the body can burn those off first for fuel (as it was designed to do).
Back to Gary’s book. It was a reading assignment for me (I work for Beesville Books) and I’m so HAPPY it fell into my lap. Deconstructing Diabetes covers way more than just weight loss; Gary delves into nutrition, hormones, your body’s metabolism, and yes: weight loss.
Gary touts that he’s dropped 100 lbs - got his health back - and has eliminated ALL prescriptions INCLUDING 800u of insulin daily. He then goes on to tell you all about his journey from hell to happiness and uncovers ‘band-aid’ fixes perpetuated by the big Pharma companies themselves with government involvement. (Wow, big shocker there.)
After reading Gary’s book, I posted this review on Amazon on January 11th, 2020 (and the day after I started my Keto Diet!):
The next thing I did was go online to see if anyone agreed with his hypothesis? Yes, they did. I did a book-buying spree and got Suzanne Ryan’s Simply Keto and Beyond Simply Keto and I also read Amy Ramos’ book The Complete Ketogenic Diet for Beginners too.
Know what? I just wish I’d done all this sooner.
I’m down from a high of 151 lbs to 119 lbs as I type this. I have another 10 lbs to go. And I know - without a shadow of a doubt
- that I’ll get there. And remain at goal weight. I'm NOT missing out
on any 'forbidden foods' because what I thought was forbidden is NOT
The Keto diet works because it’s filling (Suzanne says, “fat is filling” and it is!), and I’m enjoying bacon and eggs again … without the guilt. I’m eating healthy fats like olive oil and coconut oil - and enjoying avocados!

Instead of 'regular carb-laden bread' I get Zero Net Carbs Rye Bread by ThinSlim Foods: it does the trick and looks, tastes and feels like real bread ~ because it IS REAL HEALTHY bread!
Why this bread works is due to its fiber content - the 14g of fiber 14g cancels out the 14g of carbs therefore making this tasty bread Zero Net Carbs!
I also enjoy making my own bagels using one of Suzanne Ryan’s recipes from Simply Keto.
I would never have achieved the success I have without having first read Gary Zeidman’s book, Deconstructing Diabetes.
