Just perfect, Aug. 14 2003
With this great diet and exercise I've lost 60 lbs.
It's got formulas to compute how much protein you should eat. you get plenty of choices for carbs and fat too. Even fruit, also, butter, cheese, cream and olive oil. It is more balanced and healthful than most low carb plans so you don't get bored at all.
Unlike Atkins where you just eat protein till you feel full and have alittle salad and a small selection of veggies for your carbs. I used atkins a while back to lose a few lbs. but started getting dizzy and very crabby. Yes I lost a few pounds and almost lost some friends. That never happened on The Protein Power Plan.
6 month after starting the Protein Power Plan I had a complete blood workup. My Doctor actually called me on the phone and said, "Whatever You're doing, keep on doing it." he said, "I wish my levels looked like this! Everything is just perfect."
Lots of scientific stuff to read in the beginning of the book but I went straight to the diet formulas and read the science behind it in my leisure. It was Very interesting.
I just ordered the Comfort Foods book they wrote. I look forward to that because they use "real" foods and not packaged mixes that you have to buy especially for that recipe. You gotta love that! Most of the other plans have their own private mixes that you have to buy.
With this Diet and a good exercise program and good multi-vitamin I lost 60 lbs. of fat in one year while gaining lean body mass/muscle and strength.
