Mackarness's book "Eat Fat and Grow Slim" is the one I have already been quoting. I have nearly finished my re-write of the synopsis. If I already had, you would see that it was originally published in 1958, and updated in 1975. Your instinct was right, Wa'il.

No one volunteered to do PP (yet?). Myself, Karen and Doreen can do it, but we are all involved in polishing, proofreading the submitted reviews for publication. Hopefully someone will do it, or one of us well get to it when all the editing is over.

Wa'il, what about Natrushka?

She follows the PP plan herself (or knows a lot about it) and I am sure I have read a post of hers in which she has already either done a complete synopsis of it, or a comprehensive summary. It would be worth contacting her to clarify the point. (And I'm getting old, I had a birthday recently, and memory isn't what it was...)

I'd be tickled pink, if my skin allowed me! Nat and any experienced PP followers are invited to contribute. We simply made the call open, so those who are willing, and have the time or interest to participate, may do so without nagging.

There is "The Ideal Diet for Human Health" by Jan McBride, MD. Published in 2000. Dr. McBride was a general practitioner who developed an understanding and appreciation for low carbohydrate diets in her experience with patients and through research.

She provides a scientific analysis of the metabolic effects of carbohydrates and recommends a maximum of 90 grams of carbs a day. Those carbs that you eat can be any ... including sugar. Her website is very informative as are her book and newsletter.

Here is some information from her web site, http://www.theidealdiet.com

"The IDEAL Diet is not just a low carb diet plan - there are many of these that work very well for various individuals. But the IDEAL DIET is a description of a low carb diet that is in complete harmony with the actual metabolic processes of the human body.

You may already be on a low carb diet that is ideal for you, and can benefit from learning the scientific basis for why this diet works. Or you may still be considering the change to low carb dieting, and may find the specific instructions, charts and foods lists very useful for learning how to obtain the correct carbohydrate, protein and fat ratios for a long-term healthy diet.

With the IDEAL DIET you eat regular food that you buy at the grocery store. And you don't have to give up all fruits, breads, pastas, or even desserts!

Natural foods like fresh meats, fruits and vegetables are definitely the healthiest, but the IDEAL DIET also shows you how to incorporate into your diet the convenient packaged food items, restaurant foods and even fast foods.

There are no complicated formulas for your daily food intake, but there is a complete guide that will take you through a step-by-step process to help you relearn how to choose your foods. A Personal Meal Diary makes it easy for you to monitor your daily intake, to know when you are eating correctly, and when you can have that special treat."

Welcome aboard Heeligan2,

Have you followed it or read the book? If so, we'd appreciate a breif description in the following format:

http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthre...&threadid=13898

This format should help provide the relevant information to readers, as opposed to publisher's excerpts and/or their promational material.

Thanks for sharing,

Wa'il

Hmmm, sounds like a good plan for maintenance! I should check it out. Not that I'm there yet - always best to be prepared though!

Question

I just recently ran across this site so I am still catching up on old threads. This one caught my interest because I also recently found the "Ideal Diet for Human Health" website and was curious about it.
I am finding it hard to find any reader/dieter feedback on this book/diet and in fact, this forum thread has been the only place I have found any at all.

Has anyone actually tried this diet or heard more feedback since the last thread post by Heeligan2 (Oct, 2001)?

TIA

Hi scarlet!

Here's the style guidline for doing a summary. When it's finished, post it in this thread.

1. Plan's name: Common name of the diet

2. Date: Original publication date

3. Basic Philosophy/Strategy: Low-Carb, or 40/30/30 etc.
This can be used in the main index as a summary.

4. By the numbers: Percentages, phases

5. Method: Details of the method, what to eat, what to avoid

6. Typical menu:

7. Emphasis on: Fat, Sugar, Protein or Exercise

8. Unique Fatures: Particulars that differ from general low-carb diets

9. About the author. Brief bio and credentials.
