Carbohydrate Addicts Diet

Seems Unreal But It’s True

I don’t know why I never heard of The Carbohydrate Addict’s Diet before but it has been around for over 20 years and has a Facebook Page you can join too.

This diet is based on research carried out by two severely overweight scientists who found that some people were born with an insulin system that worked differently from everyone else’s. They found out how to manage it, using a diet that allows you to eat anything you want for one hour a day. The rest of the day, you can eat up to two complementary meals that must not contain carbohydrate. No snacking. They both of them lost weight on the diet and have maintained their healthy weights for over 30 years now.

Not Hungry

You might think you would feel ravenous on this diet but NO! The way the diet works, it controls the release of insulin. Eating or drinking carbohydrates, such as soda or bread, is what gives you “insulin spikes”, where your body releases insulin to deal with the carbohydrates, then releases more, a little later, that makes you feel hungry. The Carbohydrate Addict’s Diet helps your body deal with insulin release so you don’t get these spikes, so you don’t feel ravenous. Certainly, you feel hungry before it’s time for your main meal but it’s not the desperate, “give me anything, right now” feeling that a carbohydrate addict can get, where they will eat anything right before dinner, or never feel satisfied, despite a large meal.

Eat Anything

Yes, it’s true, not a dream. For one hour a day, on this diet, you can eat anything you like. Now of course, it’s much better to make it healthy food. And the way to do that, is to eat salad or vegetables first, then eat your main meal and then dessert if you are still hungry. During the rest of the day, you can eat one or two low carb meals, depending on which of the 5 plans you are following.

Why Not Try This Diet

This diet does not require you to buy any special foods or pills or potions. It sets out how to lose weight, healthily at a pound or so a week and keep it off. What’s not to like?
