Not a week goes by that I don’t get a handful of emails through the website from readers who had bought and used the original Protein Power Plan kit that was marketed on tv between 1997 and about 2000 to 2001. I just received two more today. Invariably, the person writing to us had used the plan and had since lost–almost always–either the Phase I booklet or the Cookbook. Stands to reason, since for most folks these two would have been the ones most used and therefore most likely to disappear with moving or spring cleaning or whatever. Because the question has come up so often, I figured it might behoove me to answer the question here for all, so that I don’t have to keep answering it over and over for each person.
As every long time reader of this blog knows, when we were finally able to get the Protein Power website up and running again back last spring, one of our first official acts was to offer our entire remaining inventory of the original Protein Power Plan kits that sold on tv and a newer version of it called the Protein Power Pyramid kit (of which we only had a few left) together at a very deep discount in preparation to move our warehouse at the end of May.
Anyone interested in replacement Protein Power Plan kit materials, please read the following important announcement:
We shipped out all of the remaining old inventory of old and revised kits before the warehouse move; there are no more kits or any components of old kits left.
(However, all is not lost. Keep on reading to find out where you can get the information that was in them.)
If you had that original kit and have lost one or more of your phase booklets or your cookbook, take heart! Once the tv promotional campaign ended (and with it our association with the company who had marketed the kits on tv) we wove most of the booklet information into two books, published by John Wiley and Sons in 2003 and 2005. Phase I mealplans and virtually all the recipes are in The 30 Day Low Carb Diet Solution and the transition and maintenance information (plus a whole lot more) is in our book Staying Power: Maintaining Your Low Carb Weight Loss for Good. Both books are available through booksellers nationwide and through online book retailers, such as amazon.com. You can go directly to their descriptive pages on the Amazon website, if you’d like to learn a little more about them; simply go back to our website homepage, scroll down to the bottom, and click on the photo thumbnail of the book you’re interested in. The books displayed there rotate (since we’ve written a few) so if you don’t see the one you’re looking for, refresh the page a time or two and it should ultimately pop up. If it doesn’t, just click on any book there and it will instantly whisk you to amazon, where you can hop around a bit and find it.
Unfortunately those of you who have written requesting replacements of the audio tapes from the old kits are out of luck. We do have the masters (or at least we were told they were in the pile of information ultimately returned to us after the tv campaign ended) and perhaps at some future time, we’ll redub those onto tape or CD. If we do, you’ll hear about it right here.
