8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on April 21 2003
Format: Paperback
I have lost 50 pounds on this diet over a year and I feel simply amazing. My serum cholesterol/lipid levels are incredible. (LDL: 89, triglycerides: 84, down more than a hundred points from the days when I ate high-carb, whole grain and low protein.)
I cannot adequately emphasize how thoroughly it has changed my life and my health for the better.
Major myths about this plan and low carb eating in general:
-It is not true that you will overload your kidneys and liver and get stinky breath.
-It is not true that it is "just like Atkins" (it departs from Atkins on many significant points--the most obvious of which is that there is no induction of ketosis. Ketosis, although not considered a danger to someone with healthy kidneys, is totally irrelevant. Carb intake is not quite as restrictive as on Atkins.)
-This is not a "diet" so much as a sustainable and healthy nutritional approach.
-It is not a "fad diet." People have been eating low carb for CENTURIES. (How odd that these cultures which eat low carb tend to be healthier and have less CVD than those who do not, hmm?)
-Eating low carb does not mean you sit around noshing on bacon, meat, cheese and pork rinds all day. (The only difference between the way I eat and the way the standard American eats: my plate does not have french fries soaked in trans fats and a piece of bread around my burger. If I should choose to eat a burger, I will have a whopping side of healthy vegetables and nuts and I will *not* chase it with carbonated sugar-water.)
-People who eat low carb are not necessarily constipated all the time (on this plan fiber is theoretically unlimited. With all the veggies, fruits and nuts, etc. I venture that low carb people eat MORE fiber than most.

Format: Paperback
Prior to finding this book, I was doing what all the "experts" were telling me, and cutting out all the fat in my diet. In one year, I dropped one waist size, from a 58 to a 56. Then I discovered Protein Power. In three months, I went from a 56 to a 48, and still going. (I have no idea what I weigh, my doctor's scale doesn't go that high.) This plan is amazing. (I refuse to call it a "diet", any plan that lets me eat bacon and eggs and cheese all day doesn't fit the term "diet"... so what if I can't eat bread, I don't miss it.) My only criticism of the book is that its recipe section is totally (pardon the expression) out to lunch, with weird recipes containing ingredients not normally found in one's own kitchen. Other diet books (Atkins, or the Paleo Diet) have better recipes. This diet isn't as restrictive as Atkins, it includes plenty of veggies, and it's easier to follow than Atkins. Belive you me, Protein Power works as advertized! (BTW, if after a few days you feel listless and no energy, it's because your body is shifting from carb-burning to fat-burning mode, give it a few more days to ride it out and you'll feel terrific.)

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jodi-Hummingbird TOP 100 REVIEWER on Jan. 29 2012
Format: Paperback
This book focuses on maintaining good health but tells you how to achieve weight loss as an additional side effect.

Phase 1 of the diet recommends that you eat less than 30 grams (net) of carbohydrate a day (plus lots of healthy fats and a 90 - 120 g or 3 - 4 oz serve of protein with at least 2 meals daily, depending on your weight/size).

Phase 2 of the diet allows up to 55 g of carbohydrates daily.

The Maintenance Phase allows 60 - 150 carbs a day, depending on what works best for you and your body.

This advice tallies very well with the information given in books such as The Schwarzbein Principle: The Truth About Losing Weight, Being Healthy, and Feeling Younger, Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats, The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy (Primal Blueprint Series) as well as Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. Each of these books recommends cutting down to around 60 grams of carbs or so daily in order to lose weight, and then upping your carb intake when you're at the maintenance level.

As someone who has been spent significant time on the Atkins induction phase where carbs were limited to 20 grams daily, I feel this is too low for some of us to feel our best and so I would personally recommend skipping Phase 1 of the diet, and going straight to Phase 2 where you are allowed more grams of net carbs daily.

It is far less stressful on the body to lose weight and restrict carbs more slowly and there are so many benefits in eating huge amounts of (lower carb) vegetables daily plus a little fruit; including that they are enjoyable to eat!

For anyone dealing with Type 2 Diabetis - this book is the best I have found and I have studied several. The book is not a difficult read - the advice is sound - and works when put into practice!
