Best LC Info Book

I've done LC in the past with some success, but I've noticed that when I go back to it, I don't really have any luck. I can't remember what I did back then - I figure it was due to the fact that LC ice cream hadn't really developed into the delicious thing it is today, SF candies were nothing I worried about, and Atkins products did not exist. I ate at home most of the time, and when I didn't eat at home I got simple things when I went out - no tricks; just bunless burgers, grilled meats, and hot wings!

I guess I need to go back and read the book and re-educate. What's the best one now a days. There are sooooooo many!

Hi Lady,
You are so right, there were none of these marketing foods back then!

I still think the original Atkins book from 72 is the best bet. Any of the publications in the 70s are fine as they are all re-prints till you get to his newer modifications in the 80s and 90s. You can usually find them on amaz as used copies or any decent second bookshop.

Other good ones:

Gary Taubes - Why we get Fat
Barry Groves - Eat Fat Get Thin
Phinney and Voltek - the Art and Science of LC

Hope that helps!

In addition to the ones Tiggy mentioned, I really like Maria Emmerich's Keto Adapted. It's not unlike Gary Taubes but it's less clinical and therefore an easier read, IMO. This book was written since William Davis's groundbreaking Wheat Belly was published (he writes the intro) and she incorporates a lot his philosophy. Really helps you to understand what's going on behind the scenes with your fat cells. In layman's terms.

THank you!!
I will check them out - I'm sure I can find them at the used book store. We have a fairly massive one in town.
