Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, Revised Edition
Ninety percent of those who have used the Atkins diet have experienced dramatic weight loss. Designed to catapult your body into a state of fat meltdown, the diet targets insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. The bodies of most overeaters are continually in a state of hyperinsulinism; their bodies are so adept at releasing insulin to help convert excess carbohydrates to fat that there's always too much of the hormone circulating through the body. Even when people with hyperinsulinism try to lose weight--especially when they cut fat but increase carbohydrate consumption--their efforts will fail. This is why Dr. Atkins refers to insulin as "the fat-producing hormone." Dr. Atkins's diet is extremely low in carbohydrates, which helps to regulate insulin production and decrease circulating insulin; less insulin soon results in less fat storage and fewer food cravings. The book includes many recipes for great low-carb dishes. This new, revised edition contains the basic die, enhanced by new explanations of the underlying theories. There are seven new chapters.
