Once in a blue moon...

Something Extraordinary Comes Along

Start Transforming Your Life Today

"This book is going to help a lot of people." That's the first thing I said to my friend DJ Foodie, after I got a look at TAKING OUT THE CARBAGE. I knew this book offered a once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity for changing lives.

I was far from alone in saying that if you're going to get one low carb book ever, this is THE ONE.

In this massive (574-page) book, DJ meticulously outlines his research-based “Low Primal” philosophy and shares the secrets that helped him lose 141 pounds. He doesn't just explain what he did, but the "why" behind it to help you make your own informed decisions.

Part low carb how-to, part cookbook, and 100% fun–this is a truly practical reference for eating in the real worldThis book sold out multiple printings and earned rave reviews for good reason.

A Peek Inside

Gave me my life back...

I borrowed this book from a friend after asking what she had done to lose so much weight. This book has completely changed my mindset of how to eat correctly. Not only have I lost 50 lbs in less than 6 months and dropped 3 pants sizes but it has gave me my life back. It is packed full of great recipes and a vast array of knowledge that only someone with years of experience could acquire... Don't hesitate to get your copy today and start living your life again. Be happy and healthy!


Given me hope...

They have given me hope. I did not get the cooking gene. These books really make me want to try. I actually took Taking Out the Carbage on a weekend camping trip with me recently just to inspire myself.  It is beautifully done, incredibly well written, and amazingly informative. I have learned a lot already. Cooking is a dreadful activity in my world. But DJ makes me want to try. On top of that, when I had a question, he answered me kindly, promptly, and encouragingly. What a wonderful man! Thanks, again, DJ! Buy them, read them, use them!
