Default Books on low carb eating

So I had my husband order Diabetic cookery: recipes and menus: Rebecca W. Oppenheimer: Amazon.com: Books from Amazon. While he was there he saw this book The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable: Stephen D. Phinney, Jeff S. Volek: 9780983490708: Amazon.com: Books
and in his eagerness to support my new way of eating he ordered it. Anyone know anything about this book? Please tell me we are not spending money on something that does not support LCHF.

Phinney and Voleck are the doctors running the Atkins program now. So I'd say you're pretty safe with their book. I've seen it mentioned a few times here so perhaps you could do a search for it and see what others have to say

It is one of my 2 go-to resources on LCHF WOE. More importantly, it is a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the physiology of why low carb works, and talks about the history of low carb high fat diets and maintenance. I came away with a thorough understanding in a short time of why carbohydrate restriction is the best way to deal with T2 and metabolic syndrome and their associated complications. I reference it as often as I do Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution.

Re the Diabetic Cookery book, I think it was published in 1917, so have fun translating for modern usage.

In my opinion "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living" is an excellent book for anyone that wants to understand why low carb works so well. It goes into great detail, maybe more than some people would care for, but covers a lot of territory. It is written to provide Doctors with the information on low carb and ketogenic diets but is written so the layman can understand it. I got a great deal of understanding from it.

I highly recommend anything by Phinney and Volek. PERIOD. Buy or borrow them ALL.

The New Atkins, however, is fairly conservative, I am not sure I really got into ketosis on it ...

However, their REFERENCES from peer-reviewed journals, in the bibliographies, are excellent.

I think the problem with some of the LCHF books out there are that they are typically meant for those using the diet primarily to lose weight and not because of diabetes. Because of that, you get suggestions to occasionally use honey or cornstarch, arrowroot or other starchy or higher carb ingredients. I personally tend to avoid those ingredients so I end up having to further adjust many Low Carb recipes which can be a chore.

I run into those and other ingredients that raise an eyebrow, in books termed "Paleo," more than anywhere else.
