    What are MUST READ books when it comes to Low Carb or Primal?

    Shop Now
    I love to read about diet and nutrition.

    I have the following books in my cart at Amazon:

    Primal Body Primal Mind by Teresa Gedgaudas
    Natural Health & Weight Loss by Barry Groves
    21 Days to A Healthy Heart by Alan L. Watson
    Feed Your Brain Lose Your Belly by Larry McCleary
    The Liberation Diet by Kevin Brown

    These books are all about low carb/primal eating. Are there any other suggestions that you may have that are must reads on this topic? And, why are they so expensive? Three of them are paperback and 24.99, what the heck?

    Edited to add that I already have the Primal Blueprint and Protein Power.

    Found a couple more:

    Fat and Cholesterol are Good For You by Uffe Ravskov
    Trick and Treat by Barry Groves
    The Great Cholesterol Con by Malcom Kendrick

    Anyone read any of these?

    Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes. This one is essential.

    I've read and can heartily recommend Gedgaudas and Primal Blueprint but none of the rest.

    ^THAT.

    Check your local library, you might be surprised what they or nearby libraries have. I read those two books from my library plus all of Michael Pollans' books, and the SCD book(breaking the viscous cycle) and Real Food by Nina Planck FOR FREE. Actually, the only book I've bought so far is The Primal Blueprint and I'm thinking about donating that to my library so more people can read it.

    Forgot that I also have Good Calories Bad Calories in the line up. I checked the local library online, and they don't have any of these books.

    Natural Hormonal Enhancement, by Rob Faigin. This guy is the best low carb wizard on the planet! A different mindset from Mark's --- Primal is a lovely concept --- but I can certainly recommend Rob's low carb cycling and some of his other ideas. For instance, I found out about Methyl B12 from one of his articles. He's a weight lifter with a very keen addiction to reading and understanding and forming conclusions from a ton of research papers.

    Not specifically low carb, but I'm very impressed with "Mastering Leptin", by Byron Richards. In fact, while he suggests not eating a lot of carbs, he calls people who try unrelieved low carb diets like Atkins "carbohydrate cripples."

    My friend who owns an independent used bookstore gives a strong recommendation for the online ABE Books. Used book prices on there are excellent. I've yet to be disappointed.
