Once in a Blue Moon....

Something Extraordinary Comes Along

"It's a 'once in a blue moon' thing..." 

That's what I said about Chef DJ Foodie's first book, TAKING OUT THE CARBAGE. 

I was not the alone in suggesting if you're going to get one low carb book ever, it is THE ONE.  But if you're open to getting two? We've got THE FAKERY to add.

Start Fresh, Today

These two revolutionary books by Chef DJ Foodie complement one another, presenting a complete picture of how to plan, eat, and yes, even bake low carb (deliciously). Together, they present an easy-to-follow ROADMAP to jumpstart dieting success. 

Painlessly. You’ll enjoy every bite! And now, they’re available together in a special combo offer.

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!

First cookbook I've actually ENJOYED reading...

I have both books and love them both. I've recommended them to several people. Beyond recipes, the biggest value to me are the explanations of ingredients, tips on cooking, and suggestions on how to experiment. A big plus is that he is funny and entertaining. It's the first cookbook I've actually ENJOYED reading. Who couldn't love this guy?
