BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Health the Carb Lovers Diet: Eat What You Love, Get Slim For Life is a book written by Ellen Kunes and Frances Largeman-Roth. This book is exactly what it sounds like – a diet for those that love carbs.

Those that love carbs can continue to eat what they love but get slim for life. The book comes from the editors of Health Magazine and shows that some foods that are rich in carbs can boost your metabolism. These special foods contain an ingredient called resistant starch. Some of the benefits of eating these type of carbs include reduction in belly fat cells and fat cells overall, increasing muscle mass, keeping you full for a longer period of time, and boosting fat burning.

There are two phases included with this diet: Phase one gets you started eating satisfying and tasty meals that will get you losing weight fast. Phase two gives you generous portions of the foods you love that include carbs.

There are also four rules of the Carb Lovers Diet. Those rules are: eat a carbstar at every meal, balance your plates, be portion savvy and never deprive yourself.

With this program you can lose any amount of weight while dropping inches all over, keep the weight off and never worry about being hungry. There are several success stories available with this program and the book includes several recipes.

These carbs contain resistant starch and help you eat less, burn more calories, feel more energized and lower your cholesterol.

This eating plan is based on research that shows that thinner people eat more carbs, carbs fill you up, curb your hunger, control blood sugar, speed up metabolism, blast belly fat and make you feel good. The carbstars that you should have at every meal are bread, cereal, potatoes and bananas.

Eating on this diet consists of two phases.

The first phase is known as phase one or the 7-Day CarbLovers Kick-Start. This is a quick plan that will allow you to lose six pounds in a week and reduce belly bloating.

Phase two of the program is the 21-Day Carb-Immersion part of the plan. This portion lays out a road map for the future and includes recipes along with frozen foods and restaurant menu selections that work well with the plan. Some of the delicious foods you might eat on this program include:
