Book Recommendations: What’s on my bookshelf!
- Diabetes Solution by Richard Bernstein, MD
- Don’t let the size of this book scare you off. There are some true blood sugar balancing gems in here that your endocrinologist probably didn’t teach you. It is organized well so if you don’t have time to read the whole thing you can pick and chose areas to read. The concepts behind this book are genius however, food quality is not addressed and that is something I highly recommend incorporating.
- The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living by Dr. Stephan Phinny and Dr. Jeff Volek
- This book is the holy grail of clinical trials and thorough scientific explanations. If your a biochemistry nerd like me it is a must read. I was truly impressed by this book and it’s one that I refer back to often.
- The Paleo Solution by Rob wolf
- This guy really knows his stuff, his book is a great place to start if your new to ancestral health.
- Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, NC
- This book is beautiful, it has some amazing recipes (not all low carb though) and explains the science behind paleo in a fun and easy to understand way. She even has a meal plan sample for blood glucose regulation. I’m such a fan of it that I’ve gifted this book to most of my relatives.
- Sexy by Nature by Stefani Ruper
- I recommend this book to every girl! Stefani explains some of her brilliant strategies for self-love, confidence, and health in a world full of questionable media.
- Rich Food Poor Food by Mira Calton, CN and Jayson Calton, PhD
- This book is a work of art that will teach you what all of those non-food ingredients mean. It fills you in on which ones to watch out for and which ones are less harmful. This is the ultimate grocery store guide!
- Your Personal Paleo Code by Chris Kresser
- If a ketogenic diet isn’t whats right for you then this book is perfect to help you find the right direction for the next step in your nutritional journey.
