Low Carb Books

Lindsey Pennington - Monday, August 17, 2009
While I was on my vacation I started reading Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Haubes.  It is a great book if you are one of those people that wants scientific evidence of how eating lowcarb is healthy.  He goes into great detail on the history of dieting and what has worked and what has not worked for effective weight loss and health.  I'm not finished reading the whole book, but I'm looking forward to the knowledge and information that Haubes shares about eating lowcarb.  I would not describe the book as a feel good book, but more as an educational book on the history of dieting and how it relates to dieting today.  He uncovers why eating lowcarb is in fact healthy and why eating lowfat, lowcal is not the healthiest and most effective way to lose weight.  I will give you more details on the book when I'm finished reading it. 

I had two exciting things about my day today.  The first thing that I'm excited to share is that I've lost another pound.  I've lost 19lbs total in 2 months and 1 week.  I can't believe I'm almost halfway to achieving my goal weight.  The second thing I'm excited to share is that I bought Jimmy Moore's book called Livin La Vida Low Carb a week ago and it came in the mail today.  I can't wait to read his book.  It's always nice to read a success story about losing weight, but it's even more exciting to read a success story about losing weight by eating lowcarb.  I've read Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution book by Dr. Robert Atkins multiple times and it has some great success stories throughout the book, but I've never read a whole book on a person's lowcarb story from start to finish.  I've already glanced through the book and I know it's going to be a great read.  I love finding new books to read!  Do you have any good lowcarb books that you recommend?
