Arthur Agatston cuts through the confusion around keto and low carb diets and gives readers a step-by-step day eating plan that increases satisfaction, decreases appetite, and makes it easy to lose weight and keep it off. He also explains why strict ketosis is not necessary to achieve results; the effectiveness of intermittent fasting; and the relationship between yo-yo-dieting and sugar addiction.
But you can beat it, he adds—for good. As someone who has struggled with his own sugar addiction, Agatston knows the pitfalls of diets only too well. But rather than giving up, he found the lasting cure. Agatston has found that for most people, eating a bit more unprocessed carbs and protein than you would in the very-low-carb keto diet can produce comparable benefits. Timing of food is equally important. For years, many nutritionists have believed that small, frequent meals—every three hours or so—were essential to keep levels of blood sugar stable and prevent cravings. You probably know that eating carbs raises blood sugar, and then insulin levels rise in response and blood sugar drops. With frequent meals or snacks, insulin rises significantly more than it would with fewer meals.
Agatston has worked for decades to help our communities improve their health, in South Beach and beyond. Good carbs are defined as those full of fiber and minimal amounts of sugars and refined grains. With frequent meals or snacks, insulin rises significantly more than it would with fewer meals. As far as cost goes, both meal plans can be pretty pricey.
