Dr. Michael Eades calls this book “the best low-carb book in print” and we agree. This “expert guide to making the life-saving benefits of carbohydrate restriction sustainable and enjoyable” by Stephen Phinney, MD, PhD, and Jeff Volek, PhD, RD, is THE BOOK we recommend to everyone.
After you’ve read, re-read, and digested the belief-shattering Gary Taubes’ Good Calories, Bad Calories, you are probably asking, “What now? If everything I thought I knew about nutrition is basically wrong, what do I do now?” In The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living, you will learn how your physiology works, how your metabolism functions, and why fatty acids, not glucose, are the preferred fuel for every cell in your body (with the exception of red blood cells). You will understand why, when your body makes the switch back to burning fat for cellular energy (fatty acids and ketone bodies are the evolutionarily appropriate fuel), your body begins to heal and rebuild itself, inflammation is curtailed, and you will have energy to burn, literally.
We know you are as passionate about being healthy as we are, so get a copy of this book today! As Dr. Eades writes, “There is so much invaluable information in this book that I’m having to fight back the impulse to quote the whole thing. You’ll learn
why you need more sodium on a low-carb diet and why the sodium prevents lean tissue loss,
why you need to increase fat intake during maintenance,
why a low-carb diet decreases inflammation,
why the low-carb, high-fat diet improves gall bladder function,
why excess carbohydrate converts to saturated fat and how,
what all the lipid parameters mean and how they’re affected by a low-carb diet,
and what the Paleolithic evidence tells us about diet.
And this list is just scratching the surface. As I read this book, I kept marking parts that I needed to use for this blog. In going back through, I would have to practically reprint the whole thing to give you just the important parts because the entire book is a gem.”
We have read many books and articles (and continue to research what’s out there), and we believe the Drs. Phinney and Volek have written the definitive reference on the whys and wherefores of low-carbohydrate living. It is the best guide available today, one grounded in science, and it has the information you need to improve your health. We will go so far as to say it may well save your life. The authors are scientists in the forefront of low-carbohydrate research. Included in the guide are a few of the authors’ favorite recipes and a meal plan to get you started. Get your copy today, plus a couple more for friends and family. You’ll love being a fat burner!
To your health!
