Low Carb Living: An Introduction Video

By Laura Moncur @ 10:00 am — Filed under:

This is a LONG video (27:34 mins) interviewing Dr Stephen Phinney, MD, PhD. It’s a great video talking about how to stay on low carb for the rest of your life. My biggest problem with Atkins was increasing the carbs after Induction. Every time I increased my carbs, I would start craving them again and go completely off the rails. This video talks about how to live on low carb for a long time.

The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living at Amazon.comHe’s promoting his book, The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living, so I downloaded the book on Amazon, but I haven’t had a chance to read it. I really like in the video how he emphasizes when something hasn’t been proven scientifically. He’ll mention the theories, but clarify when it hasn’t been shown in clinical trials.

If you’ve been wondering how to lose weight AND maintain the loss with a low carb diet, this video is a pretty good introduction.

The New Atkins for a New You at Amazon.comUpdate 05-14-12: The book is VERY technical and not very good for the lay individual. I was able to follow it, but BARELY and there was little in there for advice as far as adhering to the plan aside from adding more fat into your diet when you reach the maintenance phase (which is different than the original low carb diets suggested). This really just a book for you to give to your doctor so they stop telling you to reduce the fat in your diet. Skip it and buy The New Atkins for a New You instead. Dr. Phinney contributed to that book and it is much more helpful if you need to know how to eat low carb.
