    In a nutshell, very similar to Atkins without carbs, though fruit is allowed from the start. You're supp. to cut out dairy, too. I find that all a bit extreme, so we're 'modifying' it... meats and lots of veggies, some fruit, some dairy (lowfat milk/yogurt, not cheese 2 often) and carbs. in...

  7. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I've heard that an updated version of this book was released recently, more facts and figures in line with today's prices, etc. Has anyone had a chance to read it yet and see if it's any better than the classic with the updated figures and such? I haven't been to a book store in over a year...
