Books:  The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet

The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet (CAD) is like being on Atkins for breakfast & lunch, (but without counting carbs, because you're restricted to a specific list of low carb foods) and then being on the Zone for dinner. CAD recommends that dinner is a balanced meal, (which also makes dinner planning easier!).

Many people loved the Carbohydrate Addict's Diet book, because they thought it said: 'for your reward meal, you can eat as much as you want, anything you want, for one hour every day'.  But that isn't exactly what the Hellers said, and of course, it doesn't work for people who get it wrong!.  If you're planning on doing CAD, be sure to read the second book (The Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program) as well, where the Hellers explain exactly what they mean by a balanced reward meal - this is really the key to success with this diet.

Some people find CAD an easier low carb diet, because it doesn't require carbohydrate counting, and because it allows high carbohydrate foods at the main meal. But it also tends to lead to a slower weigh loss for most people.
