So the other day over at my InstaPundit blog I linked to Protein Power and The Protein Power Lifeplan, and reader Judith Sears asked for some advice on high-protein low-carb recipes. The result was more responses than I could handle.

First, the Insta-Wife points out that those books actually contain recipes, something I should have noted. Second, reader William Moselle recommends Paleodietlifestyle.com and EverydayPaleo.com. Plus the book, The Paleo Solution.

John Fahy recommends Atkins.com. And reader Jonathan Bailey writes:

In response to Judith Sears request for low-carb recipes, the Eades also have a cookbook (available on Kindle too) called “The Low-Carb Comfort Food Cookbook” plus the “Protein Power Pyramid Cookbook” and I think a couple more. If she just searches Amazon using the search terms “protein power cookbook” it will come back with these and several other titles.

I dropped 40 pounds (down to 145) myself after ditching the carbs in my diet.

Nice work. And reader Sandra McWhorter writes: “Been on The Abs Diet by Men’s Health Editor-in-Chief David Zinczenko for a good while. Has a book with recipes, a recipe book and now a website and it is equally effective for men and women. No clue why more people don’t live this plan. Truly is a lifesaver, along with Younger Next Year by Chris Crowley. Women’s edition there, too.”

Another reader emails: “Old, but excellent high protein, low carb cookbook: The Low-Carb Cookbook by Fran McCullough (forward by Michael and Mary Eades, M.D) conveniently available on Amazon. My standards are high; this does not disappoint. Cook your way through it and you will be satiated and slimmer.”

Lissa Kay emails: “Love this book.”

And Dr. Michael Kennedy writes: “This is the Atkins Diet again, which refuses to go away because, in spite of food pyramids and the medical bigwigs, it works. I have wondered how much the conventional wisdom on diets has contributed to the obesity epidemic. I reviewed the medical literature a few years ago and it is almost impossible (or was then) to find any peer reviewed literature on the Atkins Diet or the concept. It’s a bit like global warming.” The literature seems to be catching up a bit. I credit Gary Taubes.
