The Protein Power Diet Worked For Me

I've been on this since November of the year my daughter was born. Basically, my doctor told me if I wanted to see her get married, I'd better give up See's candy, pasta, bread, beer, all the things that made life worthwhile.

And I decided I really wanted to see that.

So I did. I read the Eads book "Protein Power", took their advice, and lost 45 pounds inside of a year. I've kept it off, and have pants with a new waist size to prove it. As it turns out, I'm good at this diet. It works for me. I feel better with it. My wife even got the carbohydrate gram counter to help out in planning meals.

A good friend of mine saw the results, borrowed the book, lost 10 pounds and put back on 20 in six months, and decided to hell with it. I suggested that he try Weight Watchers, and he is happily losing about a half pound a week.

People are NOT ALIKE in their reaction to diets. Nutritionists who do not acknowledge this are theorizing in advance of facts: and when I read their output (which seems to use Atkins as a punching bag), I am dismayed by their attitude toward science, which appears to be a matter of ideology, rather than fact. They cite facts, but have no feel for science. Pity.
