I wouldn't recommend this book. He lumps low carb in with vegan / ornish / south beach / etc. diets. He pretty much says if you're obese, this book will not help you lose most of your weight - and keeps pointing to metabolically healthy obese over and over again. He makes no mention of fasting, time-restricted eating, skipping a meal. His answer? Eat real food. Don't count carbs. Eat real food. Oh and stock up on that fiber.

edit to add: His science is great - that's why I read it to the end. But while his description of processes are spot on, his knowledge of what low carb really is is limited without access to sites such as this that show how these diets are really followed - how they morph with fasting and TRE and removing seed oils and allowing dairy or eliminating dairy and how n=1 comes into play in successes and back to the drawing board failures.

Michael Pollan. Heard him mentioned (here I think). Reading something else now, but I just borrowed these two - which would you recommend?

Michael Pollan has the famous quote, "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.

This advice did not work for me. However, his portraits of working humane farms, and his firm omnivore stance, is helpful.

Im enjoying Target 100 by ex- Weight Watchers employee Liz Josefsberg. No, its definitely not Keto, you are allowed 100 total grams carbs a day, a great place to start for me. There are 6 targets to aim for: Lower carbs, exercise, more movement, hydration, less stress and more sleep. Its really a holistic program, and I feel I can make this a lifestyle. Also for those who count total, not net carbs, I also recommend The American Diabetes Association pocket guide to diabetic food choices. They group generic food groupings into standardized serving sizes which makes counting carbs a no brainer for me. The 5th edition was just published.
