9780091853754: The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet Book

The authors believe that a tendency to gain weight easily can be caused, not by lack of willpower, but rather by a physical addiction to carbohydraes. This revolutionary diet eliminates the cravings and helps you overcome the yo-yo syndrome - when weight you have lost is quickly gained back - permanently and without feeling hungry.

The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet Book is based on the Hellers' years of research, thousands of case studies and their own personal victories over food echanges and calorie counting. A daily reward meal, along with wholesome, balanced Complementary Meals, fit easily into busy schedules, restaurant meals, holiday and celebrations. Filled with sound advice and effective strategies - including wonderful recipes and menu plans - this groundbreaking book helps eliminate carbohydrate cravings and puts you in control of your eating and your weight - for life.

Review:

If you've been a yo-yo dieter for years or if you can eat a pound of pasta at one sitting, The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet may very well be an eye opener. In simple--but never condescending--language, it explains the roots of carbohydrate cravings and teaches you how to normalise your insulin levels to prevent future food binges. Regulated insulin levels in turn help to temper serotonin levels, so food cravings and mood swings are prevented. The authors, both research scientists (one a health psychologist, the other a pathologist), have lost and kept off a total of 200 pounds between them. They've based this book on nearly a decade's worth of research, during which they've helped nearly 80 per cent of their patients lose weight and keep it off for at least a year.

They explain that carbohydrate addicts most commonly crave popcorn, breads, bagels, rice, pasta, potatoes, ice cream, chocolate, pie, biscuits, crackers, cake, fruit and fruit juice, crisps, and pretzels. A questionnaire at the beginning of the book determines if you're indeed a carbohydrate addict, and if so, to what extent. (For those readers whose quiz doesn't indicate addiction, but who are bothered by their food cravings, the authors recommend a doctor's visit for an explanation.) The book includes a diet plan with dozens of easy recipes, a chart of the carbohydrate content of many common foods, and lists of binge triggers to watch for. The most appealing part of the diet--and one reason that it wins raves from its followers--is its once-a-day reward meal, which allows you to eat anything you want. The authors also offer helpful tips for incorporating the diet away from home, such as at parties and restaurants.--Amazon.com
