Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the book, The Protein Power Life Plan. I was a huge fan of the original “Protein Power Plan” that came out in 1996, so much so that I never read this one when it was released. I recently bought a copy and have learned so much new information it is hard to believe this book was published in 2001, 15 years ago.
Unfortunately they did not make a kindle version of it, dang it. But it is one of those types of books with a lot of diagrams and charts that seems to be better in print anyway. I see the genesis of a lot of Paleo authors in this work, and it is so deep and yet readable I recommend you get a copy just for educational purposes even if you do not feel you need to loose weight.
In fact that is the point, this high protein, moderate fat (the right fats) and carbohydrate restrictive approach is solution to many lifestyle diseases like High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and Type Two Diabetes even for many who are not over weight.
This is not a “fad diet” it is the result of decades of work by two medical doctors who have helped thousands of direct patients in their practice. It is very scientifically based and well worth the read.
FWIW you can get the original book, “The Protein Power Plan” for kindle but the more updated Protein Power Life Plan is really the way to go. Unlike many authors Mary and Michael Eades are very quick to say, hey we said this before, then we learned something new and have updated our recommendations.
One example, in the first book they recommended fish oil capsules to help with Omega 3 acids for those that don’t want to eat sardines, which is the current best affordable and highly available source. Then they read a study that 50% of off the shelf fish oils are rancid and updated new ways to address this. They also explain why Flax is a fine thing but not the Omega 3 silver bullet many think it is.
So I really recommend that you add The Protein Power Life Plan to your library. It will change what you think you know about nutrition, diet and especially modern medicine. Again for the skeptical on the low carb approach, I challenge you to invest in this book the science is locked down, every I dotted and every T crossed.
