The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

Eek! Thanks for finding the typos. Can I hire you to edit my next book?

I've been working on getting the e-book version out, but it will be a while longer. Sorry for the wait. The Kindle will have to be sold on Amazon, I just hope they can get that right!

Thanks for the comment.

There are two typos in your post for the links to buy the book! The Danforth Books link is myshopify, not myshipify, and the LC Foods link is corp, not coorp. Hopefully the fact that it's out of stock on Amazon is good news. I would prefer the ebook version if it's available, but Amazon doesn't show it available yet.

I've been following your blog for a while.

Sounds great, I would love to be in the running for that prize. I liked you on Facebook a long time ago. I am following a mainly primal lifestyle trying to keep under 50g of carbs a day. You can contact me at
