" It allows you to convert books that have been saved in a set format into a format that will work with whatever reader you are using."

Even if the reader you're using is your computer.

Calibre is more of an ebook management program. So you could use it to load books onto your kindle (or sony ereader, etc) or you can actually read the books via the program. It allows you to convert books that have been saved in a set format into a format that will work with whatever reader you are using.

I would be interested in the e-book, GF. The hard cover is $24 here at Wal-mart and I don't want to spring for that.

Hi Shawn,

Thanks so much for the site. I haven't found the carb cycling but did find the calorie cycling. Very interesting and looks to be very useful.

I've heard mixed reviews on this book and Chris Powell's program - he sure has great results with his clients, though, so I'd like to find out more.

Morticia I have the e-book I could email it to you. You could skim it on your computer using something like the free program 'Kindle for PC'.. . Up to you.

I haven't read the book. I don't shop online and we lost our bookstore in town so now the closest one is 70 miles away.

If you click the calorie calculator link below (and in my signature), & put your info in, it will give you at the bottom a calorie/carb cycling plan automatically.

Thought about that but I don't really know enough about the process to feel comfortable leading a team. May try to get a little more literate about it and then see if I can put together a team.

That's tough if no one is posting. I took over my team because everyone wanted it to exist but no one wanted to lead it. You may have to do it yourself and see if there is any interest.

It would be great if someone who really understood the Carb Cycling would become a team leader. How to we try and recruit someone?

I was curious and checked it out. Seems that team is considered inactive since there have been no posts for quite awhile. Needs a new leader to get it going again!

Is anyone doing the Chris Powell The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution? I got the book but I'm just confused and thought if someone was already doing it maybe I can get some advice.
