Overview

This groundbreaking plan teaches readers to outsmart blood sugar spikes so they can eat the carbs they love and still lose weight.

Starches are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the nation's weight problems. Starches spike blood sugar levels, which can make losing weight nearly impossible. Unfortunately, many of favorite foods-pasta, bread, rice-are the worst offenders. But who wants to cut out these delicious dishes and feel deprived?

By focusing on certain foods that slow the effect of starches on blood sugar, The Sugar Blockers Diet offers a smart eating strategy that can be maintained for life. These foods, called sugar blockers, include all kinds of everyday foods from steak or cheese to vinaigrette or a glass of wine. Learning how to include these foods at every meal will not only help readers lose weight, but also help them reverse insulin resistance and defend against diabetes.

In addition to a robust list of sugar blocking foods and strategies, the book includes:

  • More than 50 tantalizing, nutrient-rich recipes
  • An easy, fun walking plan proven to balance blood sugar and help the pounds melt away
  • A proven plan on which real men and women lost up to 18 pounds and 9 inches in just 6 short weeks

    Clear and easy to follow explanations

    A friend told me about this book. I looked at several like it and this was the best on how starch and sugar work in your digestion. My husband has both type 2 diabetes and gerd, so his diet is challenging. This book has helped us find foods that work for both. I have also lost weight as a result of the changes we have made.
