The doctor duo that brought you to the low-carb lifestyle shows you how to regain in midlife the figure of sleek, flat-bellied youth.
Why is it that even though we might maintain our high school weight, few of us maintain our high school belt size?
In your twenties and thirties, the layers of fat on top of your abs were the problem. But once you reach middle-age, the enemy shifts. The 6-Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle is the first book to deal specifically with the issues we face in the next stage of life, providing a plan for eliminating the unhealthy fat that accumulates around the organs–visceral fat–that is the true cause of the middle-aged bulge.
The good news is that with the right diet, visceral fat can be quickly reduced and eliminated, enhancing both your looks and your health.
