Science now knows that starches are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the nation's weight problems. Starches spike our blood sugar levels, which wreaks havoc on our bodies and make it near impossible to lose the pounds. Unfortunately, many of our favorite foods such as pasta, bread and rice are the worst offenders! But who wants to cut out these delicious dishes and feel deprived? The Sugar Blockers Diet solves this dilemma by highlighting common foods with the power to squash blood sugar spikes when eaten 30 minutes before a starchy meal. This innovative eating plan opens up a world of previously forbidden foods to people with diabetes. Readers can enjoy starchy pastas, cakes, and more in moderation when they remember to take a dose of everyday foods like nuts, pickles, or a glass of wine. There's no need to count calories, carbs, fat, sodium, or anything else on the Sugar Blockers Eating Plan. By emphasizing low-glycemic load and sugar-blocking foods, readers automatically cut calories and lose weight, improving their blood sugar, cholesterol, mood, and energy along the way.
Optimism on paper
I thought this was a very good book. It was well laid out and very informative. I don't know how well it will work yet but I am willing to try and at least be hopeful.
I think that the danger with taking the Diabetes drugs Actos, for its bladder cancer problems, and Victoza,for its pancreatitis problems should have been more highlighted with these medications.
I also had a problem with the exercising of the type 2 muscle by pushing it to the maximum weight possible and still be able to get the set done wasn't a good way to work things because I wound up sore for the next 4-5 days where I could hardly even walk or move around.
