Protein Power

Here's another low-carb approach offered up by a pair of doctors.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Protein Power is one more low-carb centered diet plan. Protein Power champions the benefits of a low-carb lifestyle. Created by Dr. Michael Eades and Mary Eades, they say the Protein Power plan counters insulin which they hold responsible for obesity.

Per the Protein Power Plan, the fat you eat has hardly any affect on your weight. The Eades suggest that eliminating carbs from your diet will result in desired weight loss because when carbs aren’t present in the body, you reduce insulin production and start using your fat stores for energy. Unlike other restrictive low-carb plans, Protein Power offers flexibility.

PRO
  • Increased energy
  • Tasty foods
  • Boost your health in a few weeks
  • Great diet for those that crave steak, eggs and cheese
  • Follows the low-carb style of eating
  • Sample menus available
CON
  • Some find a low-carb diet difficult to follow
  • Low-carb dieting has gained controversial attention for being too high in fat and unhealthy
  • Low-carb diets tend to only work short term
DIET and NUTRITION

While following Protein Power, your diet will include fat, protein, limited carbs and a healthy caloric intake.

Don't worry about giving up foods you enjoy. Protein Power recommends poultry, beef and pork, some fruit and vegetables, some dairy, dry beans and whole grains. You should strictly limit high-carb foods like processed sugar, pasta, bread, bananas and carrots.

EXERCISE

The book discusses the importance of exercise, specifically resistance training.

CONCLUSION

Protein Power claims you'll experience more energy, regulated blood sugar, better cholesterol, and of course, a few less pounds; all in less than a month's time. It seems to fall in line with most low-carb philosophies.
