Resources for Starting a Low Carb Diet

Thinking of embracing the low carb lifestyle?  Here are some resources to consider before beginning your journey.

Getting Started:  10 Tips for Success by Dana Carpender
Getting Started by George Stella
Getting Started on Paleo Nutrition by Kurt Harris, M.D.
Low Carb for Beginners by Lora Ruffner
The 30-Day Low Carb Diet Solution by Michael R. Eades, M.D. and Mary Dan Eades M.D.
A Low Carb Food Pyramid by Laura Dolson
Get a good Low Carb cookbook.  I have 1001 Low Carb Recipes by Dana Carpender.  There are a lot of low carb cookbooks out there; find one and use it.

And, of course, the Bible of the low carb lifestyle, for the why behind the low carb lifestyle, Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes.  A longer, more academically dense version of Why We Get Fat by Taubes is Good Calories, Bad Calories.  If you like reading academic journals and scientific explanations, this is the book for you.  But Why We Get Fat gives you most of the same information, without the footnotes and the academic speak.
