Other Low Carb Diet Plans

These low carb diet plans are the best of the ketogenic diet plans offered on the market, in my opinion. The books associated with each diet are easy to read, informative and based on sound scientific research and extensive clinical experience.

The Atkins Diet

Summary: The Atkins diet is by far the most famous ketogenic diet. The diet was developed by the late Robert C. Atkins, M.D. in the late 1980s, and it is a classic ketogenic diet. Carbs are very low at the beginning to induce ketosis, and the consumption of saturated fats and leafy green vegetables is encouraged.

The newest book, (New Atkins for a New You) includes some really solid research references, as the authors (Jeff Volek, Eric Westman and Steve Phinney) are doing the cutting edge research on the effects of low carb diets.

The Protein Power Diet

Summary: The Protein Power Diet was created by Drs, Michael and Mary Dan Eades. The diet is based on our genetic ties to paleolithic man, and proposes that the healthiest human diet is one which most closely follows what paleolithic man would have eaten.

Associated Books by Dr. Eades:

  • The Protein Power Lifeplan
  • Protein Power: The High-Protein/Low-Carbohydrate Way to Lose Weight, Feel Fit, and Boost Your Health--in Just Weeks!
  • The 30-Day Low-Carb Diet Solution
  • The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook
  • The Low Carb CookwoRx Cookbook

The Diabetes Diet

Summary: The Diabetes Diet is a low carb diet designed by Richard Bernstein, MD. The diet is based on real life experience, and is supported by current research.

Dr. Bernstein's diet is a strict diet, and is based on controlling carbs at each meal. Meals focus on the consumption of healthy fats, protein such as meat, poultry and seafood, and non starchy vegetables.  He refuses to call it a ketogenic diet, and speaks against ketosis for people with diabetes, which is strange to me, because his diet IS ketogenic (he recommends 12 carbs at breakfast, 6 carbs at lunch and dinner each).  But he has been around for a long time, and is a respected and beloved expert on Type 1 diabetes, having struggled with it most of his life.

General Information on Ketogenic Low Carb Diets

I highly recommend that you also read Dr. Volek and Dr. Phinney's books The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living and The Art and Science of Low Carb Performance.  These guys are the top level experts on ketogenic diets in my opinion.  They are now involved in research through Virtahealth.com.
