The editors of Health Magazine (and top nutrition scientists) have big news: Eating carbs is the best way to get and stay slim. Breakthrough research revealed in this book shows how certain carb-rich foods–especially those with the amazing natural ingredient called Resistant Starch–act as powerful metabolism boosters and appetite suppressants. Rather than making you fat and bloated, as decades of low-carb diet gurus claimed, CARBS make you thin. They shrink fat cells, especiall

    After months of struggling to stay within points on Weight Watchers and making just too many concessions I bought this book. I think if I was to ever meet up with these authors I would probably burst into tears and thank them. Not only are most of these meals inexpensive and easy to prepare, but each meal ranges about the same calorie intake so you can have whatever recipe strikes your fancy for that meal. Another reason I would start crying: I have yet to be hungry. I have managed to stay within the portion sizes and not once did I get hungry enough to jump off the menu. Most days I don’t even eat the snack that is allowed. I would never, ever have thought that a piece of rye toast, almond butter and a banana would keep me satisfied for up to 6 hours. I don’t get weak or shaky from getting too hungry too fast. Within 2 days of starting the program every craving I had vanished. For the first time in a long time I feel like I am controlling the food versus the food controlling me. I also noticed a wave of energy without that afternoon/evening drop. I am staying up an extra hour and half without impact. Sometimes I have so much energy I can’t be still. Another plus for those who are on a budget and short on time, most of these recipes are fast and quite of few of them use the same ingredients or an ingredient can be substituted easily for one that you have already bought. The best part of this whole thing is I can have my morning egg sandwich and cheese. The only thing I had to change was from a bagel to rye bread. Losing my egg sandwich was a deal breaker for me and why I left WW. Seriously, I am so happy to be losing weight and feeling full after every meal, I could cry.

    I am a vegetarian and find the diet easy to follow and vegeatarian-friendly. I never feel hungry on the meal plans and love how the recipes incorporate some of my favorite foods — sweet potatoes, beans, almond butter, strawberries, raspberries, coconut, and other fruits and veggies. Chapter 11 is especially helpful with the charts listing correct serving sizes so I don’t overeat. I also like knowing the number of calories and resistant starch values so I can make the healthiest food choices.

    I got an advance copy of this book and let me tell you it really works! I lost 6 pounds the first week, and I was never hungry. Sometimes I felt so full I couldn’t even eat the whole portion. I felt good on it too…had so much energy. This diet feels so healthy as opposed to others I’ve tried. My favorite recipes are the Scallops with Southwestern Rice and Spanish-Style Shrimp with Yellow Rice. My (non-dieting) husband lapped them up too. Lots of lunch-to-go options and restaurant options which makes the diet achievable. Love having my carbs back!Health The Carb Lovers Diet: Eat What You Love, Get Slim For Life

    We can probably thank Dr. Atkins for creating the belief that “carbs” and not money is the root of all evil. There is just one problem that comes up. I have never known anyone that has been able to stay away from cars long term.

    The Carb Lovers Diet tells us that carbohydrates are not the enemy when it comes to losing weight. In fact, eating the right types of carbohydrates can help you drop pounds, since they can help curb your cravings, preserve lean muscle tissue (which can keep your metabolism from dropping) and control your blood sugar levels (so your body stores fewer excess calories as unwanted body fat.)

    The real hero in this book is called “resistant starches”. It seems that different types of starches digest at different speeds. Resistant starches will pass through the body without being digested, similar to fiber. This does sound like a dream come true, doesn’t it? The book suggests raising the average of 4.8 grams of daily resistant starches to 10 to 15 grams through various carb-based recipes.

    Here are the 5 rules for winning the carb game:

    1. Eat at least one resistant starch-rich food (called CarbStars) at every meal

    2. CarbStars should make up about 25 percent of every meal. The rest of your calories coming from lean meats, low-fat dairy products, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables (in other words, cut out the junk food.)

    3. Watch your portion sizes (brilliant!).

    4) Don’t deprive yourself, but use moderation for the bad foods.

    5) Create a power pantry (stock up on CarbStar foods).

    The first 7 days allows only 1,200 calories a day divided among four small meals. The second portion of the program (21 days) allows for to 1,600 calories divided among five small meals.

    This program really follows the idea of a calorie-restrictive, nutrient-dense, fiber-rich diet, which is actually a great way to eat. The book offers 85 recipes with a colorful picture of every meal, which makes the meals seem more visually desirable. Haven’t you done that in a restaurant when you see some food go by? Of course, the program also includes exercise, which is a great idea.

    Bottom Line

    The Carb Lovers Diet follows the usual plan of most diet books, although it is a fresh approach that may help you rethink how to eat better and exercise more. It is solid advice that will work if you stick to it. The big letdown for me was that it doesn’t really live up to its title. If you love those sinful unhealthy carbs (ice cream, chocolate, cookies), you may still face the same challenges you had before. If you came here looking for a magic fix for eating bad foods and losing weight, you will have to look elsewhere. If you are looking for good advice on healthy weight loss, you have found it.

    I was a tester for this diet and started on it in January. I’ve stayed on the diet since the test officially concluded in March, and it’s been easy. It’s full of actual food that I want to eat – like Italian sausage with roast vegtables and polenta – not faddy things that I’ll get sick of. Even my kids like the food.

    I also found this take on managing my diet to be easier than anything else I’ve tried when I’m out for a meal. Since the focus is on getting enough of the right things and not on avoiding tabu things I’m not the party pooper when I’m trying to order off a menu.

    I’m down by two dress sizes and most of the weight came off my hips and belly, so I’m thrilled with it!
