WOE: My way low carb!
Start Date: July 11th 2003
What books do you recommend?

I've read all the atkins books, wheat bellies and tons of lc cookbooks...I've also enjoyed reading Dr. bernstein's books even though I'm not diabetic.

I'm looking for recommendations more on books that are proponents of higher levels of fat...I think one is eat fat/get thin...not looking for another way of eating...just the rationale behing eating a higher fat diet.

Anybody? Oh, and the author too, please! Also, I've never read anything by Michael Moore whose name I see bantied around the boards....any recommendations?

The Art and Science of Low Carb Living by Voleck and Phinney. I am reading a great book right now that is called Fat Chance by Robert Lustig. I know he has been on Jimmy Moores podcast.

I totally agree with The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living by Phinney and Volek. Very readable and totally about why we should eat LCHF. Have you read Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes? That's another good one. If you want more depth, you could try his Good Calories, Bad Calories though that one is much longer and with lots more scientific info in it.

Julia Ross' The Diet Cure... not specifically low carb, but helps me tremendously. I've also read most of the ones you mentioned, and liked them alot.

You must read Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, MD. The book just hit the bookstores in the last week. This is a perfect book to read after reading Wheat Belly. Dr Perlmutter provides more information and studies showing why a low carb...wheat free...paleo way of eating is the way to go. He is a neurologist and has a clinic in Naples, FL. This is another book that I have highlighted on almost every page. This one will stay in my collection.
