The carbohydrates Addicts diet was created by Richard and Rachel Heller MD who try to solve the problem of “yo yo” dieters. This diet claims that most people who are overweight are actually addicted to eating carbohydrates. Since these additional carbs are never metabolized correctly, they create a distortion in the insulin levels which results in packing on the pounds. The increase in insulin will also cause people to have more food cravings than others.
The premise behind the Carbohydrate Addicts diet is to decrease the consumption of carbohydrates. There is a complete food list which dieters can eat off of. Anything that is not on the list must not be consumed in order for the diet to work. In terms of the meals, there are two main courses. These two meals must consist of a major protein source like chicken, fish or lean beef and fibrous vegetables. The final meal is made up of anything that you want but for the best results this meal should be divided into foods that contain 1/3 of carbs, proteins and fibrous veggies.
This diet is targeted for certain people who are addicted to carbohydrates so this diet may or may not be right for you. In the dieting book, there are a list of questions that will help you to determine whether or not you are a carbs addict. This diet is helpful since there is much less carbohydrate intake which can be dangerous for your health. By limiting and moderating the carb intake, your health will improve. There are a lot of processed carbohydrates that have entered into our lives which are much more dangerous for our health than regular simple carbohydrates which have never been broken down.
Carbohydrates found in vegetables are quite healthy and the carbohydrates addict diet draws a clear difference between healthy simple carbs and unhealthy complex carbs such as white flours, white paste, white rice and bakery goods. This diet will give you many great ideas about foods that are delicious but that help you to break away from consuming carbs at every meal.
