Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of great nonfiction. And now, I’m blogging about it. Here, one of my favorite finds.

Best nonfiction book: How I Gave Up My Low-Fat Diet and Lost 40 Pounds by Dana Carpender

Is this really one of the best nonfiction books out there? Why?

What can I say? I like a book about a girl on a diet, especially if the diet is successful. Carpender blends good science, and good advice, with her compelling personal story.

What will I get out of this best nonfiction book that will make it worth my time?

If you’ve never tried a low-carb diet before–maybe even feel a bit skeptical–you may find Carpender’s book helpful. It’s great introduction to a very complex topic, a mix of scientific studies and commonsense advice.

A few notable points:

  • A 2000 New English Journal of Medicine low-carb study showed there are no health benefits to low-fat diets at all.
  • 5-HTP and niacin may help people avoid emotional eating.
  • L-glutamine helps reduce carb cravings.
  • The book also gives a good description of insulin and ketosis.
