Paperback Published: 10/01/02 Until recently, dieticians
and doctors believed that a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet was
the best way to lose weight. However, new data challenges this
simplistic approach to weight loss and shows that such diets can
not only undermine metabolism, but may even prompt fat storage.
A new medical mindset suggests that controlling blood sugar by
limiting the consumption of certain carbohydrates is much more
crucial to weight management than previously thought. Moreover,
the use of certain, "carbohydrate blockers," which prevent the
absorption of starch and sugar, can help to safely facilitate
weight loss. Read inside to find out how you can take advantage
of this medical breakthrough.
