Today I had a surprise in that I was written about for my video Amazon reviews on Jimmy Moore's Livin' La Vida Low-Carb. I recently reviewed Jimmy's extremely motivational book with the same name as his blog, as well as two other low carb books that were also excellent. Together the trio makes up a perfect package, in my opinion, for a physician to find out everything they need to know in order to help their patients adopt the low carb lifestyle.
Jimmy's post covers each of the three books well, so if you're interested in this, be sure to read it. I am new to all of this, but not new to nutrition, as I've studied health and nutrition, especially raw food lifestyles, for many, many years. I loved and truly believed in "being raw" for years, but never was able to stay raw as a lifestyle. Thus, nothing ever worked for me long-term, and now that I'm through with menopause, I'm more interested than ever---because of the health issues---in being a healthy weight. So far (it's been a little less than two weeks) this works amazingly well for me and the sugar cravings are finally starting to diminish.
Low carbohydrate living would never have appealed to me if my body hadn't gotten so out of whack and if I hadn't packed the pounds on, because of my personality, which has had vegan leanings for many years. I also was a member of the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a group that has persecuted the Atkins diet. Now I'm on Atkins. Not just for the weight loss, but primarily for my health. For I have read Good Calories, Bad Calories, the premier scholarly tome reviewing nutritional and bariatric research over the last decade. What a switch! But I'm actually glad to have had the opportunity to make it now and hopefully save my health for a much healthier second half-century of life.
