The Sugar Blockers Diet: (Hardcover) by Thompson, MD, Rob
Over 26 million Americans have type 2 diabetes and a whopping 68% of the population is overweight or obese. It’s become an epidemic and we’re bombarded with diets and promises for permanent weight loss every day--but nothing seems to work long term.
Science now knows that starches are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the nation’s weight problems. Starches spike our blood sugar levels, which wreaks havoc on our bodies and make it near impossible to lose the pounds. Unfortunately, many of our favorite foods such as pasta, bread and rice are the worst offenders! But who wants to cut out these delicious dishes and feel deprived?
The Sugar Blockers plan solves this dilemma by highlighting common foods with the power to squash blood sugar spikes when eaten 30 minutes before a starchy meal. This innovative eating plan opens up a world of previously forbidden foods to people with diabetes. Readers can enjoy starchy pastas, cakes, and more in moderation when they remember to take a dose of everyday foods like nuts, pickles, or a glass of wine. There’s no need to count calories, carbs, fat, sodium, or anything else on the Sugar Blockers Eating Plan. By emphasizing low-glycemic load and sugar-blocking foods, readers automatically cut calories and lose weight, improving their blood sugar, cholesterol, mood, and energy along the way.
Prevention put this plan to the test--men and women who tried this plan lost up to 18 1/2 pounds in 6 weeks. And they never felt deprived, controlled their cravings and saw energy levels soar.
