    I’m living proof that this diet (in a modified form for me) not only works, but can be used to maintain your weight loss and wellness long term – regardless of what some of the “experts” say. I’m living proof. You gotta wanna, and if you really wanna, you’ll find the right way that works for you.

    No More Fat Kids, A Pediatrician’s Guide For Safe and Effective Weight Loss
    by Dr. James R. Bailes, Jr., MD, with Dr. Misty Trent-Strow, MD.
    An eye-opener of a book, this is a comprehensive guide to improving an overweight child’s overall health, wellbeing and self-esteem. As an adult reading his book, I found that it helped clarify and demystify the principles of a safe, healthy low carb diet and lifestyle. No more excuses.
    The NEW Atkins for a New You Workbook
    by Colette Heimowicz.
    Forget what you think you know about Atkins. The NEW Atkins Diet is all about personalization – including a range of delicious protein, healthy fats, and fresh vegetables – and this workbook is an essential part of the plan. It doesn’t belong in the kitchen or on a bookshelf: take it with you for carb counting, motivational tips, and advice for shopping or eating on the go. The NEW Atkins for a New You Workbook offers tools for new and experienced dieters alike to achieve significant weight loss in an easy, practical and measurable way.

    Good Calories. Bad Calories. Challenging the Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight Control and Disease
    by Gary Taubes.
    Another eye-opener of a book. I wish every physician, dietician and health care professional in the world would put ego aside and read this one. It might help the ones left clinging to outdated diet dogma to help you more effectively by pointing out important evidence of another viable option than the same old-same old.
    The South Beach Diet
    by Arthur Agatston, M.D.
    Very Atkins-like but drawn out in a slightly different manner. Some like this diet because of the “South Beach-y,” glamour aspect of it. Too broad-based for me, however. I need a more Atkins-like approach. Whatever works, do it.
    Enter The Zone – A Dietary Road Map to Lose Weight Permanently” Reset Your Genetic Code: Prevent Disease: Achieve Maximum Physical Performance
    by Barry Sears, Ph.D.
    One of my former doctors pooh-poohed this diet when I wanted to go on it while under his care several years ago. I went ahead and did it anyway and six weeks later, much to his surprise, my LDL and HDL were a good sixty-some points lower and my triglycerides experienced a significant decline, also. When I pointed all this out to him, he said it was “a fluke.” I said, “Adios.” Then I found Dr. Mark Stolar.
