I am a total Atkins supporter, but I am very interested in reading The Primal Blueprint as well as look into the Paleo Diet, and I would also like to read Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes. Has anyone read or researched any of the following? I think that once on maintenance or transitioning out of the Induction phase these might be good references. Thoughts?

I love that book! Why We Get Fat....it's an easy read and very informative. Read it twice, back to back.
I also enjoyed the Primal Blueprint, love Dr. Atkins...I have learned to just eat whole healthy organic foods whenever possible!

I'm Primal! I started on my own version of Atkins, and easily transitioned to Primal. Primal is a specific take on Paleo, so the information is interchangeable. I have found that by signing up for the emails on the Primal page, I get enough information to make it work for me. Like Monika said, mostly just learned to eat whole/natural organic & grass fed foods, and avoid ALL processed foods!

The Taubes book is excellent, but unlike Monika, I found it difficult to get through in spots. A second (or third) reading of certain sections did help, though. Great info!

I think that nearly every WOE has certain points that I could agree with. But, for me, it's a matter of finding the WOE, in its entirety, that I feel I could stick with long-term, as well as a WOE that is solidly researched and helps combat the various health issues that all of us seem to fight these days.

Primal makes a TON of sense. We evolved to eat off of the land and sea, not from processed foods made by machines putting all these man-made concocted chemicals, additives, and substitues in! I base my diet along the primal way, yet am not strict with it. I've lost over 55 lbs since going low carb and high protein. I love it! As soon as I get down to my ideal visual weight, I'll eat more variety of fruits and veggies, and also more nuts. I'll continue on with protein based meals, but I'll be more lenient with the sides.
Stay the course, stay on point, stay motivated, dedicated, and you won't be stopped. Discipline. Perseverance. Focus. Dig deep and you will be victorious.
