Do you keep gaining weight, despite your efforts to diet? Do the pounds accumulate around your tummy? Do you feel tired, irritable, and unable to focus? If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you may be one of the millions who have Metabolism B, an inherited condition that causes your body to overprocess carbohydrate foods into excess body fat. There is a reason that some people can eat all they want (and seemingly never gain a pound), while the rest of us fret over every carb. Diane Kress, a registered dietitian and weight-loss specialist, has helped thousands with Metabolism B lose weight--and keep it off--with her revolutionary, scientifically based program. Now she shares its secrets here. Among the many life-changing elements of The Metabolism Miracle , you will discover:

* The reason why cookie-cutter approaches to dieting (subtracting calories burned from calories consumed) cannot work for those with Metabolism B
* The tools to lose weight and reprogram your metabolism permanently
* A foolproof method to improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar
* The return of your energy, focus, and sense of well-being
* Sample menus to help you take it one day at a time
* Delicious recipes (including vegan) tailored to match each step
* An active lifestyle plan to maintain your newfound body weight.

As someone who struggled with Metabolism B for years, Diane Kress knows firsthand the frustration of diets that don't work. Based on the latest research, her own experience, and the experiences of her clients, she has developed this groundbreaking plan to help you take back your life--starting today.

author is an R.D. who herself developed type 2 diabetes while following low fat calorie counted diet with exercise.

this diet is meant to treat metabolic syndrome. (an 8 week very low carb period--25 grams per day, followed by progressively more carbs (about 110 to 180 grams/day)
I am not this despiritted--25 grams is very very low!)

2 ideas that were new to me were that about 45 % of people have a change to the shape of the insulin receptors on their fat cells when those cells become-well--fat--ie stretched. When receptor shapes are changed insulin resistance occurs. the other 55% of pple can get very very fat and still maintain the perfect insulin receptor shape on fat cells.

the other idea in this book is that a major problem for some people is that the liver 'overshoots' its glycogen stores into bloodstream when meals are too far apart (more than 5 hours or during the night) with resulting overshoot in insulin and then low bloodsugar and carb cravings--thus a person can actually gain weight by skipping meals...
I like the coleslaw dressing....
