Looking for a diet that really shifts those inches? Tried low fat, calorie counting, grapefruit, cabbage and all manner of other food combining, detoxing diet regimes and still the pounds creep back? You may just need a spot of Protein Power.
The Doctors Eades reckon that following this plan will help you to stop treating fat as the enemy, allow you to eat the foods you love, find new energy levels, reset your metabolism, lower "bad" cholesterol levels and raise the "good" and help protect you from high blood pressure and heart disease. Phew.
The plan is based around the principle that the immediate effect of carbohydrate consumption--something that is often encouraged in other diets as carbohydrates have a "filling" effect--lead to an instant increase in blood sugar levels, which in turn leads to an increase in insulin levels and elevated insulin levels are associated with obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. By avoiding foods that boost insulin levels in this way, symptoms are alleviated and weight loss is a welcome side effect.
The recipes, meal plans, exercise ideas and, most importantly, a list of foods that are OK as snacks, make for interesting reading, although the plan itself may at first seem a little regimented. But it certainly does make sense and with a little perseverance it might just work--it certainly won't do you any harm. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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!Read more ›
