Protein Power 2.0 is coming… soonish. I got a letter from Dr. Mike that they had intended to launch the book with Low Carb Breck 2018, but have been besieged by nature and were unable to deliver the book to the publisher in time for concurrent release. But it’s coming.

I am a Protein Power Life Plan user, which was the updated and expanded Protein Power from ~2004. Geeked for 2.0.


I recently got this one and really enjoyed it. While not keto, or really not about any WOE, I found it helpful. I think it was released originally under a better name, the Four Pillar Plan, in the UK. I’ve used some of his suggestions and found them very helpful, specifically as regards sleep.
