Basic Introduction to low carb, high fat eating: (please get at least one of the books listed below, rather than just relying on web site posts for your info)

  • Jacqueline Eberstein RN – I would guess that she would have more experience with the process of helping people with the day-to-day of low carb eating and the use of nutritional ketosis for weight control and other health benefits than anyone. Dr. Atkins’ nurse for 3 decades, she offers her knowledge on her web site Controlled Carbohydrate Nutrition.
  • Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt is producing a series of posts “How to Loose Weight”.  At this point, he is at post number 5 of an intended 17 post series.  So far the series is very well done.

“Low Carb Central” – the largest resource by far of low carb related info and discussion is Jimmy Moore’s Livin’ La Vida Low Carb blog and associated podcasts.  There are many hundreds of interviews you can search through in his archive or just scroll back through the list of posts.  He interviews clinicians, researchers, opinion leaders, cook book authors, other bloggers and podcasters and more.  Also extensive blogroll.

Video of Dr. Stephen Phinney MD PhD discussing Low Carb eating:

(Note: for part of the interview, he discusses a trial done long ago where two men lived in a hospital and ate only meat as an experiment.  It is very important to point out that he is not recommending this, just commenting on it.  The meat available to us now is not the same and our situation is not the same, in many ways.  Indigenous Peoples did not tend to consume only the muscle meat of animals and those animals foraged on a wider range of plants – they weren’t a product of feed lots and breeding programs. All of us have a lot of toxins in our bodies and there are many other things to consider, such as that the diets of our mothers when we were developing in the womb have an effect on how our bodies are programmed to function.  Besides that, there is always the fact that people are different, with some people being resistant to a certain harm and some being more susceptible.
