The authors of Protein Power are back to advocate the "protein-rich, moderate-fat, carbohydrate-restricted diet" that opposes the high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet that every professional medical and dietetic organization (including those who have no diet books to sell) believes to be your best bet for avoiding heart disease, the number one killer. The authors insist, in the face of all this medical opposition, that "the whole idea that fat and cholesterol cause heart disease is just that: an idea." We're meant to be hunters, say the authors: bring on the meat. Let's go back to the Paleolithic diet (no mention of the brief life span of Paleolithic men and women).The Protein Power Lifeplan is not easy reading--most of the book is made up of scientific explanations, research summaries and interpretations, and nutritional warnings--but no recipes. Besides recommending eating protein and fat, the authors recommend sunbathing without sunblock (but "never, never let your skin burn!") and exercises such as "bringing home the buffalo" and "defending the camp." The authors admit that if you're trying to lose weight, you have to limit calories, but if you're not, you can "munch on nuts, seeds, nut butters, cheeses, jerky, guacamole, and olives all day long."Carbohydrates, say the authors, "are totally nonessential to your health and well-being"--words to make dieticians and cardiologists shudder.
The Protein Power Lifeplan Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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 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, how to eat, and gave me so many tools!
