I also found Grain Brain from David Perlmutter a great read!
I think Life Without Bread started out in German too.

Yes, I have that one. Not really amazed, all three books still go on about reducing saturated fats. Still on the edge of the standard thinking that has made us so ill. They do have some good points, but like I said, not 'out there' enough for my LC liking!

The Diet Doctor, Andreas Eenfeldt is on a different level, and his book is definitely worth reading/ buying.

It’s been a few years since I read Life Without Bread (the English version). I didn’t remember the bias against saturated fat. I’ll have a look for Eenfeldt’s book.

Well, they still recommend not eating too much fat and eating canola oil.... I guess that's because it's an older LC book.

I have also come to this realisation. This is why I am now reading so much on the topic of LC and such. I really feel that by understanding I will make this a life change and not just another diet I'm not going to stick to. I think by just following rules and not really understanding the underlying science I failed more than I succeeded in my LC journey. Only now I feel slowly more and more confident that I am doing what is necessary for my health and wellbeing and it's helping me stick with my WOE.
I absolutely agree...this is the reason that I went back to regular eating before, and why this time I believe it will stick. I honestly view all carbs as poison for me now. I know, without a doubt, that if I want to be healthy and avoid the diseases that took my family, I have to eat LC/HF the rest of my life. All the years of reading I've done now, have FINALLY reprogrammed my brain to embrace natural fats and have an aversion to sugar and wheat.

Love your screenname. How appropriate. I am in the middle of reading the book "Cereal Killer" by Alan Watson. It was a book I got from our very own Cleo. One of the last chapters is called "Praise the Lard". I could not help but think of that when I saw your avi In this book "Cereal Killer" he has many references to low carb books. The book is great because at the end of each chapter he will tell you what books to read/reference to that corresponds to what the chapter was about. I would recommend "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon as well as "Know your Fats" by Mary Enig. I have not yet read them, but they are among the recommended reading in "Cereal Killer".

Dr. Eades gave a heads up on his blog today about a free kindle book - Whole Grains, Empty Promises: The Surprising Truth About the World's Most Overrated 'Health' Food by Anthony Colpo.

Dr. Eades said he has not read it yet but wanted us to be able to get it while it is free. He'll review later. It is probably not new info for most of us but reviews on Amazon say it is good info & easy to understand.

I would say read Gary Taubes book. I thought I hadn't read it. But his name seemed familiar. Then I realized I had read it and frankly can't remember anything about it. I have floated in and out of low carb for years. So don't have a good idea of what people should read. I too need to read/reread to understand better and make it a permanent way of eating.

Wanted to add that yday I began Wheat Belly and got half way through it until bed last night.

Mind blowing.

I've been on again off again LC for years and this time since august. I read a lot of info on all sorts of topics and this book by far has had it he greatest impact on me.

No matter if you are new to LC woe, or an old hand, or celiac, diabetic, etc etc. doesn't matter. Read this book.

Just wanted to add, I've recently read Naked Calories by Jason & Mira Calton. Really good book. Also, wanted to thank those who recommended Grain Brain by Dr. Perlmutter and Trick and Treat by Barry Groves. <--Now, this book has a ton of great information.

As soon as I am done with Barry, I have the Volek & Phinney book to read. Thanks for the updates, I've just added three more to my 'need to get' list!

Susan, I agree about Wheat Belly! Don't know why that one took me so long to read! But, yep, the more I read the more 'their' food holds absolutely no appeal. It's all about money and lies. And that's just sad for people who don't want/try to educate themselves.

Is it correct that Andeas hasn't yet released a book in English?

I can find a English titled one "Low carb, high fat food revolution" on Amazon but it's for release next fall.

Yes, that's right. Unfortunately, you can read it only in Swedish or German I think...

I definitely recommend getting it!
