The book makes good health sense. We don't need to fill up on starches and sweets. If we balance our meals and include some protein, we don't feel as hungry and our blood sugar stays more even and we aren't tempted to eat so many fattening things and gain weight.

I know. I have tried it. PROTEIN POWER works.

useful book for those wanting to learn about low carb diets. this diet, along with Atkins, lowers cholesterol and, as a result, should be somewhat protective against cardiovascular disease. low carb is certainly a good way to lose and maintain weight.

This book has lots of tips on managing blood hormone and sugar levels through appropriate nutrition and diet choices. It even has a section designed to be read by your physician if he/she is skeptical about the approach promoted by the book. A good read.

After leading other standard "healthy" lifestyles like low fat/high carb vegetarian, vegan, and standard low fat diets, I'd hit a plateau, had some health issues, and was experiencing odd symptoms - arthritis in my hands (and I'm only 25!) and severe digestion problems. I started to realize the high carb lifestyle was a big contributor to my problems.

I started following the advice of the doctors Eades along with other advocates of the Low Carb (and Paleo) lifestyle - Gary Taubes of "Good Calories, Bad Calories", Mark Sisson of "The Primal Blueprint" and Loren Cordain of the Paleo diet.

I'm losing weight, I feel much better, and I've become a serious skeptic about the standard advice of today's dietitians and physicians regarding nutrition. I can't recommend the Protein Power series enough!

My doctor recommended I use this plan, and I was extremely sceptical. 2 months later when I finally opened & read it, it all made sense to me. I started right away and so far have lost 40lbs in 3 months!! I'm sold. :)

This is an excellent source for the person interested in the lowcarb lifestyle. They explain the effect of too many carbs on the body better than any other books I have read.

Very helpful in understanding the metabolism of carbs and fats and protein for those of us who like all that detailed information. This is Atkins improved.

The authors discuss the biochemical roles of hormones in the metabolic process to demonstrate why low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet programs don`t always result in weight loss. They also present the case for their high-protein, low-carbohydrate alternative. The key is preventing, through diet, the overproduction of insulin, which controls fat storage and is triggered by eating carbohydrates. Their eating plan includes lists of protein and carbohydrate counts for common foods, a collection of recipes, and a discussion of the necessity of exercise. Cholesterol, vitamins, minerals and various risk factors are also covered. Meals include an avocado filed with mayonnaise, hard-boiled eggs, and chicken chunks, a smoked salmon smothered in cream cheese, and a double-patty burger topped with bacon, cheese, and avocado.

This is the 1999 edition of the book. Protein Power presents a diet plan based on low carbohydrate eating. It's less extreme than the Atkins Diet, and I found the writing style less defensive and more scientific. I DID lose weight on this plan. However, it was difficult to stick to, especially since I have two small children who are not low carbing.

Protein Power is packed with helpful charts and formulas, so you can estimate your body-fat percentage and your ideal weight for your particular body composition. There are worksheets to calculate your protein need and carbohydrate and protein equivalency charts, as well as charts that allow you to track your fat and weight loss. But this book is not all grams and percentages: it also shows you what a day of eating on this diet would look like and includes sample menus and 70 pages of recipes. If you've been starving yourself for years and just can't seem to lose weight, this may be the diet for you.
