Well, I couldn't believe it when I saw this book on Goodreads just now. It is an excellent book on helping one to maintain one's weight, eat heathily and gives very sound advice about our bodies.

I use it on a daily basis too.

Goodreads, you are marvellous!

Lost 50 lbs on this diet nearly 20 years ago, and back at it again, currently. Never feel better than when I follow their advice (and the lifestyle change this requires) and it is not hard, but it requires planning and determination to start.

The Protein Power LifePlan, goofy title and all, is a great second book to read for anyone curious about the merits of low-carb dieting. I say second, because it doesn't probe the depths of the "fat is bad for you" myth to the extent that, say, one of Gary Taubes' books does. Better to get convinced of that first major point in a more comprehensive work.

Once you're there, though, this book is great. If you're sold on the idea that carb reduction is the best thing you can do for your health, you

I read Gary Taubes' "Why We Are Fat," and I have read some of Atkins' writing, South Beach, etc. This is by far my favorite of all the books, with not only the scientific background on things like insulin resistance (though less specifics than in Protein Power, or so I've heard), but also a huge array of medical, deep information on antioxidants, aging, nutrition, vitamins - the list goes on. Easy to read and understand, and easy - in theory - to apply. This really helped me understand my body, ...more

A fascinating book on different aspects of health, in particular nutrition. Eades explains how the body works with various nutrients (and non-nutrients) in a manner that a layman like me can understand. I have changed my eating habits as a result of reading this book, and as an extra added bonus, I have a new appreciation for how the body works. This is going directly to my re-read shelf.

I enjoyed this book. A lot of fabulous information that is well laid out. It is a valuable resource and will stay on my shelf for reference.

They use the same logic as the South Beach Diet, but their diet is more broad. They emphasize certain vitamins and explain the common blood work values. I learned a lot.

Changed my life, gave me my health back, returned my enthusiasm & joy. Wish I'd read it when I was 16.

I thought this would have charts to glance through at least, but its all word, and maybe a teeny chart here and there. Not what I thought.
