Does anyone know anything about carb shifting diets? I am trying to gather some information about them.  I thought I would ask here before I pay for anything.

carb shifting diets usually refers to low carb diets like the atkins diet...  which has recently gone into bankruptcy due to people finally realizing that it is not the healthiest type of diet to do... people usually can't tolerate low carb for a long time and have not learned how to eat a balanced diet that maintains or helps them lose weight as a lifestyle.  So, when they quit the low carb diet, whammo, they go nuts and tend to regain.
