There’s a reason diets don’t work. Science has shown that a class of carbohydrates, called “Addictocarbs,” light up the brain’s pleasure and addiction centers and make it almost impossible to eat them in moderation. If you’ve experienced overwhelming, irresistible cravings for things like bread, cookies, soda, or potatoes, then you’ve encountered these Addictocarbs firsthand.

If you’re struggling to lose weight, counting calories and shrinking portions are not the answers. The answer lies in how your brain reacts when you eat these Addictocarbs—and how you can use this knowledge to help you break the addictive cycle.

It’s called the Addictocarb Diet, and it’s a cure—not a fad.

After losing his father at an early age to obesity-related illness and a lifetime of struggling with his own weight and diabetes as a result, Bruce Roseman, M.D., transformed his life and the lives of close to a thousand of his patients with this simple and effective diet based on the latest findings in addiction neuroscience.

The Addictocarb Diet: Avoid the 9 Highly Addictive Carbs While Eating Anything Else You Want explains that weight gain stems from our addiction to these nine carbs, proven by new brain imaging techniques from the emerging field of addiction neuroscience.

Unlike fad diets, the Addictocarb Diet not only helps you easily lose weight and keep it off, but also improves your overall health and can be beneficial for almost anyone, including those struggling with gluten or lactose sensitivities, prostate problems, diabetes, and other ailments.

This book equips you with tools for success, including tips for handling dietary lapses and navigating fast-food challenges. It also supplies recipes, sample meal plans, and answers to frequently asked questions from hundreds of Dr. Roseman’s patients. Stop fighting cravings and take control with The Addictocarb Diet.

Your struggle with weight loss ends here. Reclaim control of your health and well-being with The Addictocarb Diet.
