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.
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.
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. :)
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.
