Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution, Revised Edition
Designed to catapult your body into a state of fat meltdown, Dr. Atkins’s diet has taken America by storm. It 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. This puts the body into a bind; it always wants to store fat. 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.” This new addition contains the basic diet and is enhanced by new explanations of the underlying theories. There are seven new chapters.
