I found out about SLD by chance.  I'm a member of another discussion board -- one with a primary topic unrelated to dieting or health issues -- and, in a thread in the health and fitness forum on that board, I happened to see a mention of SLD by a poster who also posts on this board.

I was searching the catalog for a different diet book at the public library, I saw the title of Shangri-la come up on the computer screen bu it was not yet purchased by the library. I went striaght to the book store, found it and read the whole book right in the store, then purchased it.

Hasn't there been another thread on that before ? Anyway, I read your interview with Charles Platkin in the newsletter he sends.

Doing a search for something else, certain nutritional supplements, probably. I saw the book on eBay.

Being curious, and trying seriously to lose weight, I looked it up on the internet. I had just started a "fat fast" ketogenic (KD, 5 day) diet to kick off a calorie reduction, and thought that the Shangri-La Diet might just be the help I needed to maintain the current bit of weight loss, plus what I knew I'd lose from doing short term KD, and then continue on SLD to see if it works. I ordered the book from a bookseller on eBay. I received it Friday and read it yesterday -- already having practicing SLD for 1 week, so far.

My brother (a securities broker) thrust Freakonomics upon me so he would have someone with whom to dissect it.  I was reading all the extras in the back, noticed mention of this and thus the research began!
