Low Carb Diets : Easy & Healthy Weight Loss Programs That Really Work!

  • Used Book in Good Condition

This book is for everyone who wants to learn why low carb diets actually work. And, why an ever-increasing number of health care professionals consider them healthier than low-fat diets. In easy-to-understand language, Low Carb Diets briefly explains the scientific principles underlying these popular diet plans.

Author Susan Somerset Webb begins by providing a short synopsis of how America got itself entrenched in the low-fat mentality. The parallels between increased carb consumption and the rise of obesity and autoimmune diseases is discussed.

The author then clearly demonstrates how a diet high in carbohydrates and low in fat can contribute to weight gain. And, if you must take off weight, lower your cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, or level your blood sugar, you will learn why restricting dietary carbohydrates can solve these problems.

One chapter is devoted to “Beginning the Low Carb Lifestyle” and another discusses maintaining the “Healthy Low Carb Lifestyle.” However, for readers who want an in-depth low-carb education, Somerset Webb reviews and compares well-known and less well-known diet books and their plans. Atkins, Carbohydrate Addicts, Protein Power, and SugarBusters are some of the 14 books she reviews briefly. For the reader curious about low carb diets but unsure where to start, this short, easy-to-read book is the perfect introduction.
