This year a diet book was published that finally making sense. Dr. David Ludwig takes a middle-of-the-road, scientifically sound, nuts and bolts approach to the obesity epidemic in our world: It’s all about the fat cell. An endocrinologist (hormone doctor) by trade, he sees “calories in-calories out” as an outmoded 19th Century idea; he prefers terms like insulin, glucagon, cellular homeostasis, or set-point. Citing good, solid research, he convinces the reader to think differently: stop counting and starting listening to your body’s hunger mechanism–rendered out of whack by our high-carbohydrate diets–and eat to be satisfy normal hunger not cravings. It is very simple, and his website is user-friendly gives you all the information readily. The resources and downloads tab has charts, meal plans,shopping lists, etc., all that you need.
I tried it myself to see: I think it works well.
