It's not about willpower--it's about your body chemistry
You've tried dieting, and, after some initial success, you always seem to put the weight back on. Stop blaming yourself! The problem isn't with you; it's with the diets themselves.
Many are based on the glycemic index, which doesn't make a distinction between good carbohydrates, such as carrots, from bad ones like starches--potatoes, white pasta, sugar, etc. Nor do they take into account real-life serving sizes; the GI numbers are based on lab-controlled portions. The good news is that nutritional scientists have developed the glycemic load, a powerful new tool for controlling weight that's based on what people actually eat and allows for more of a variety of foods.
In The Glycemic-Load Diet, cardiologist Dr. Rob Thompson unveils a revolutionary eating and exercise plan that helps you reverse insulin resistance, allowing you to:
- Eat more of the foods you like
- Eliminate cravings for starchy foods
- Eat chocolate and still lose weight!
- Speed up your metabolism with regular, non-strenuous exercise
- Keep the weight off without "dieting"
