    Is this book about the same as you 7 day carb? I have that one but I need more recipes do u have a book with simple menu with the recipes so i can start it the better eating habit again. I did good while i was on it . but fell off and really want start again but I seem to run out of way to use the foods on the list.I also had joined your online site but got very confused with the recipes on there so different from what the book said, are the recipes on that site good for a person of my size. recipes would be great since i weight 328 lb and am 5′ 4″ and 55 years old retired I’m feeling the weight and need to take it off. it has put me on a cane and pretty much stopped me from doing the things i love traveling gardening. etc. If you could help thank you.

      “Choose More, Lose More for Life,” Heidi and Chris’ second book, is an updated version of their first book. It has more recipes, all four carb cycles, and an updated strength training program (9-Minute Missions). Since it does have all four carb cycles, you can switch between cycles at any time, which gives you even more options to help you reach your transformation goals. You can do this!

    Hello Powell family
    I am French and almost as most frogs, I am not bilingual!
    A word in the hope that your family is well.
    I am writing to see if there is a French version of your books? I have not found, would it be possible to have the computer version (to translate it easier)? In payment … a book?
    I returned to sports (1 hour per day / rowing, walking on treadmill and bicycle / I am unable to run again for the moment I feel I have electric poles instead of legs) since one month but I still gain weight ….
    Should I stick to the same exercise for 1 session?
    I’d like to try your carb-cycling Plan.

    Have a good day!

    I stop as soon the book is that I’ll write !!!

    • Team Powell - September 17, 2014

      I’m so sorry, but there isn’t a French version of the book available, and you’ll have to contact the publisher about any translation opportunities. As for exercise, you can do whichever activities you’d like to during your workout time. Here’s a post about the carb cycling nutrition basics to get you started: Happy carb cycling!

    Made this the other day….everyone loved it..even my kids

  5. Darren - July 28, 2014

    I have the Choose to Lose book, I wonder if I should get this one, to make it more simple….to get on with losing and get er done.

    • Team Powell - July 29, 2014

      Both books have Chris and Heidi’s carb cycling program – “Choose More, Lose More for Life” has a bit of a different exercise program and introduces 3 other carb cycles (Easy, Turbo, and Fit). Either book will help you reach your goals, it just depends on which cycle you want to follow.

  6. Sue - July 27, 2014

    I have both of Chris’s books online. Is there a place to download the recipes with the high-carb / low-carb additions?

    • Team Powell - July 28, 2014

      No…but in “Choose More, Lose More for Life” every recipe has info on how to make the recipe a high or low carb option.

  7. Judi W - July 26, 2014

    thank Heidi! Perfect timing. I have chicken in the fridge and was mulling over what to do with it. This looks great!

  8. Karen Ray - July 25, 2014

    What do you use for Jerk seasoning? Is this a store bought seasoning or do you make it? If so what are the ingredients?


    • Team Powell - July 26, 2014

      You should be able to buy it in the store. Enjoy! 🙂
