The editors of Health Magazine (and top nutrition scientists) have big news: Eating carbs is the best way to get and stay slim. Breakthrough research revealed in this book shows how certain carb-rich foods--especially those with the amazing natural ingredient called Resistant Starch--act as powerful metabolism boosters and appetite suppressants. Rather than making you fat and bloated, as decades of low-carb diet gurus claimed, CARBS make you thin. They shrink fat cells, especially in your belly; boost fat burning; increase muscle mass; curb cravings; keep you feeling full longer than other foods; control blood sugar, and lower cholesterol and triglycerides!
Health Magazine, the expert when it comes to healthy living, takes this revolutionary new science and turns it into an easy-to-follow, real women-tested, dietitian-approved road map proven to melt off 10, 35, even 100 plus pounds forever. Our test kitchen chefs and registered dietitians also developed 85 delicious, simple recipes and foolproof meal plans that help you lose weight while you enjoy the foods you've craved for years.
Phase 1 of The CarbLovers Diet eases you back into a world of yummy, satisfying meals and snacks, while dropping weight-especially belly fat-fast and permanently. Phase 2 is nothing short of life-changing: Dieters savor generous portions of their favorite foods (think steak and potato dinners, French toast for breakfast, sandwiches dripping with cheese, chocolate torte for dessert)-while their clothes get loose, their skin glows, their energy soars!
Bottom line: The Carb Lovers Diet shows you how to eat your favorite carb-filled foods-and helps you get thinner and happier than you ever imagined. We've included fun-to-follow eating rules, tricks and tips, grocery lists, and amazing recipes anyone can make, enjoy, and share with others. Don't feel like cooking? No problem. We've got hundreds of quick bites, frozen foods and restaurant menu items too. Get ready to feel satisfied, happy, and oh-so-slim. Get ready for your fabulous new life as a CarbLover!.

The Carb Lovers Diet tells us that carbohydrates are not the enemy when it comes to losing weight. In fact, eating the right types of carbohydrates can help you drop pounds, since they can help curb your cravings, preserve lean muscle tissue (which can keep your metabolism from dropping) and control your blood sugar levels (so your body stores fewer excess calories as unwanted body fat.)
The real hero in this book is called "resistant starches". It seems that different types of starches digest at different speeds. Resistant starches will pass through the body without being digested, similar to fiber. This does sound like a dream come true, doesn't it? The book suggests raising the average of 4.8 grams of daily resistant starches to 10 to 15 grams through various carb-based recipes.
Here are the 5 rules for winning the carb game:
1. Eat at least one resistant starch-rich food (called CarbStars) at every meal
2. CarbStars should make up about 25 percent of every meal. The rest of your calories coming from lean meats, low-fat dairy products, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables (in other words, cut out the junk food.)
3. Watch your portion sizes (brilliant!).
4) Don't deprive yourself, but use moderation for the bad foods.
5) Create a power pantry (stock up on CarbStar foods).
The first 7 days allows only 1,200 calories a day divided among four small meals. The second portion of the program (21 days) allows for to 1,600 calories divided among five small meals.Read more ›
I also found this take on managing my diet to be easier than anything else I've tried when I'm out for a meal. Since the focus is on getting enough of the right things and not on avoiding tabu things I'm not the party pooper when I'm trying to order off a menu.
I'm down by two dress sizes and most of the weight came off my hips and belly, so I'm thrilled with it!
