From the Inside Flap

Drs. Michael Eades and Mary Dan Eades were among the first to demonstrate the benefits of a protein-rich, low-carbohydrate diet. In their runaway bestseller Protein Power, which has sold more than 4 million copies, and their other bestsellers, the Eades showed us just how easy and effective low-carb dieting is for losing weight and achieving optimal health. Now, with Staying Power, they break new ground with the first book focused on helping you make your dieting success stick for the long haul. Staying Power takes the low-carb diet revolution to the next stage.

I bought this because I'm finally getting close to my weight loss goal. Yes, I used Protein Power Life Plan for my weight loss and this book is geared towards low carbers, although I think almost anyone can use it.

It's a pretty simple book. There is an explanation of how you transition from a loosing phase to a maintaining phase, there are examples (taken from their practice) of how others have transitioned and there are meal plans and recipes. Most importantly tho, is that there is a section that allows 365 days of recording your meals, activities, etc.

Well written, easy to understand and great tool. A must for anyone trying to maintain a low carb lifestyle!!

The first book by the Eades that I read was "Protein Power." I can't say enough good things about that book; it was a life changer. I lost 15 pounds in ten weeks and my blood pressure plummeted so dramatically halfway through that I had to stop taking my BP med's. I'm having no problem at all maintaining my desired weight. In fact, I had to start counting carb grams again in order not to lose too much.

This book is a nice to have but hardly essential purchase. It has very little new information or insights. There are 269 pages in total, including the appendices and index; pages 145 through 250 consist of two pages where you are supposed to record a week's worth of nutritional and personal data, repeated 52 times. (Well, okay, each week has a new "tip" and "inspirational quote" but otherwise it's the same two pages over and over.)

The only really useful part of the book was the section entitled "7-Day Low-Carb Boot Camp" detailing seven menus to get us back on track if we get too far off plan. If you, like me, can snag a used copy of this book for $4.00, then it's almost worth the price for this alone.

I have been reading the Eads books for a while, and this is an important addition. I lost 15 pounds last year, and for the rest of my life the challenge is never needing to lose weight again. At middle age, the doctors are so correct: you must change your ways in order to maintain optimal weight, which is step one in a healthy lifestyle.

After being on the Protein Power diet and having lost 35 lbs. - I needed the information in this book to help me transition back to my normal living - with my new eating habits intact. I hope I'll never go back to the unhealthy weight I carried just one year ago.
