The Carb Lovers Diet Book Review

by A Diet Community

The Carb Lovers Diet Book is based on the findings of Pauline Koh-Banerjee, Sc.D., adjunct professor in the department of preventive medicine at the University of Tennessee. The professor studied the effects of protective carbs, which are carbohydrates that the body needs to function and that can help to prevent obesity.

The Carb Lovers Diet is not a free for all for all carbs, too bad, isn’t it? The Carb Lovers Diet suggests you eat carbohydrates from whole grain sources that include fiber content which allows the body’s digestive system to work properly. Below I will point out what are protective carbs.

What are Protective Carbs?

*Whole grain baked goods

*Whole grain pastas

*Whole grain rice

*Whole grain cereals

*Organic oatmeal

In order to start a Carb Lover’s diet, all you have to do is begin adding whole grain sources of protective carbs into your daily diet while still avoiding the bad carbs like white bread and flour.  For example, instead of having a bagel for breakfast have one serving of oatmeal instead.

Overall, I found that the diet is a fairly easy to plan out for yourself and to stick to. I personally am looking forward to trying this Carb Lovers Diet, as I only have about 10 more pounds to lose. This diet is not a direct plan to help you lose weight if you need to lose more than five to ten pounds. Adding protective carbs into your diet is mainly geared toward preventing more weight gain; not as a substantial way to lose fat.So, if you have only a few pounds to lose it is a simple way to do so. If you have more than a few pounds to lose it is still a good idea to put these changes into use, however you will have to follow an excellent exercise regime and/or another diet.

I am looking forward to this diet as I am a carb lover. I have tried Atkins and other low carb diets in the past and although successful, I was cranky everyday. I love my carbs! So if you are like me, and love your carbs too, try the Carb Lovers Diet!

Sounds like an interesting book–one geared toward maintenance.  I’ll have to give it a try.

What’s the difference between organic oatmeal and old fashioned oats?
