Goodbye Sugar Cravings!,
This review is from: The Metabolism Miracle: 3 Easy Steps to Regain Control of Your Weight...Permanently - A Proven, Revolutionary Diet Program to Overcome Insulin Resistance and Lose Weight Permanently (Hardcover)
I got this book from the library 5 weeks ago and am now looking to buy it for future reference as I have been on this diet for 4 weeks and it is working! Yes it is aimed at the american market but the same principles apply to anyone who finds it difficult to lose weight because of insulin resistance. I have lost 10 pounds now and I am expecting to continue this for the rest of my life. The first 3 days I was very tired and irritable but after that I have felt much better and the most fantastic thing about this diet is that my sugar cravings have miraculously disappeared! This makes it much easier to stick to the quite stringent first eight weeks, after that you start adding in more carbs, in a controlled way, until you reach your goal weight then you are on a maintenance regime for the rest of your life. It gives you tips on what to eat if you eat out and what to do about eating on holidays etc. Just give it a try, I feel like I have been liberated from the ties of food cravings at last and I am in control of my appetite. I have made the muffin recipe in the book and just bought myself a cup measure and ingredients from the supermarket, anything I couldn't get from there I went to my local healthfood shop and got the rest. I now have a choclate muffin every afternoon at work - they are delicious. You do need to up your exercise as well, so I go to the gym 3 times a week and do a bit more dog-walking. This diet is the answer to my prayers!
