Protein Power

What It Is

The popularity of low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets is at an all-time high, thanks to a number of best-selling books. Among them is Protein Power, which graced the New York Times best-seller list for over a year, sparking controversy with its assertion that the mainly carbohydrate-based diet --fruits, vegetables, and starches -- is responsible for rampant obesity and heart disease, not the traditionally named culprits such as red meat, eggs, and dairy products.

Written by a married couple of MDs, Michael R. and Mary Dan Eades, the book promises that you will "feel fit and boost your health -- in just weeks!" The cover includes praise from one of their diet-expert-author competitors, Barry Sears, author of The Zone, who calls their book nothing less than "The Nutritional Primer of the Nineties."
