Dr. John Salerno’s ‘The Silver Cloud Diet’ Takes The Atkins Diet To The Next Level

Filed under: Health — @ December 12, 2009

Dr. John Salerno is back to tell us about his low-carb “Silver Cloud Diet” plan

People who have read Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution know that he advocated something called a “fat fast” for people with especially high levels of insulin and a resistance to weight loss. He said consuming a very high-fat, very low-carb, calorie-controlled diet for a few days may be what is necessary to get the ball rolling and many people who have gotten stuck on their low-carb lifestyle have tried this a time or two. But what about a longer-term “fat fast” lasting upwards of one month to maximize fat loss in a very short period of time? Will it work? Today’s podcast interview guest certainly thinks so and he’s here to tell us all about it.

In Episode 313 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are happy to welcome back to the show Dr. John Salerno, author of a brand new e-book called The Silver Cloud Diet. As he shared during our November 2008 interview, this idea of an extended “fat fast” using primarily organic foods is not such an outrageous idea for people who have not been as successful following Atkins Induction or other low-carb plans. He believes this is the key component that Dr. Atkins completely missed in his series of books.

Listen to Dr. Salerno discuss why Atkins Induction may not be enough for people with high insulin levels, why eating organic foods are far superior, why non-organic saturated fat sources can be carcinogenic, the essential purpose of consuming saturated fat, why a 1,000-calorie and somewhat portion-controlled diet is necessary to change habits, why people over 300 pounds may need to consume higher calories on The Silver Cloud Diet, what you can eat at a restaurant or while traveling away from home, why there are no fruits and vegetables in the early stages of the plan, how low-carb helps prevent tooth decay, what the staples of this plan, why mayonnaise is permissible while following this program, how to feed your family following this routine, why eating low-carb saves more money than you spend, how much weight loss you can expect on The Silver Cloud Diet, why insulin is so misunderstood by most people, why it’s not your fault that you’re fat, the people who may have challenges with this diet, and so much more.
