From the Publisher
Bestselling author and naturopathic doctor Natasha Turner is back, with a revolutionary discovery about individual sensitivities to carbohydrates. The Carb Sensitivity Program is a simple nutrition plan (with recipes!) that produces quick, consistent and lasting weight-loss results.
Did you know that healthy foods such as sweet potatoes, black beans, or quinoa could be making you fat? Renowned health expert Dr. Natasha Turner has made a groundbreaking discovery that can help curb cravings, control appetite and beat belly fat in just six weeks. Her research and hundreds of patient trials have revealed that the vast majority of us have different degrees of sensitivity to carbohydrates without realizing it. This means the degree to which you are sensitive to carbohydrates (such as bread, vegetables, pasta, rice, fruits and beans) determines how much fat you are accumulating on your waistline. This explains why some people fail to lose weight, hit an unbreakable plateau or increase their weight even when they're following a perfectly balanced diet. Something as simple as chickpeas could actually be a major contributor to weight gain! The Carb Sensitivity Program helps the reader discover the perfect carbohydrates for his or her body, and walk away with a personalized plan that sheds fat, increases energy and optimizes health by producing quick, consistent and lasting weight loss. With so many people in danger of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, there truly is not a single individual who would not benefit from this uncomplicated yet revolutionary discovery.
