Carbavoid by Cindy Fleck Howlett

Take ten minutes. Read this book.
Change the way you think about food forever.

Pictures speak louder than words. Carbavoid, The Fuel for the Future, shouts clearly and shows convincingly where food goes once it enters your body. Obesity and Type II diabetes are the result of frequent, repeated spikes in blood sugar. Avoid sugar spikes and you avoid obesity and diabetes. It’s that simple. Mrs. Howlett’s timely analogy between your body and your car shows you exactly how to do that.

Carbavoid breaks down the three essential nutrients of your diet – carbohydrates, proteins and fats – and shows you how to combine them to fuel your body so it runs like a finely tuned sports car.
• You’ll understand how sugary foods turn into fat.
• You’ll understand that protein is essential to your muscle growth and cellular health.
• You’ll understand that fat is your friend…good fat, that is. Most importantly, you’ll learn the perfect blend to create the premium fuel that your body needs so that you can live a longer, healthier and happier life.


'Carbavoid' may only have 33 pages, but it is full of very informative information. It is a book that can be read in 10 minutes, however the information that it contains is so easy to grasp that it will stay with you for awhile.

I found 'Carbavoid' very helpful and I personally liked how short the book was. Whenever I may need to refresh my memory of it, it won't take me very long at all! However, if you are looking for a book that goes into great detail about every aspect of what you should be doing, when to do it and why you should, this is not the book for you. But, if you want an easy to understand book, that will give you the basics to a healthier you and is not bogged down in technical jargon - this is it!

I loved all the pictures in the book - I thought they were nice and very helpful with the explanations. While 'Carbavoid' is written in a juvenile style, I feel that it will be helpful to people of all ages.

*** I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of it - which I have done. ***
