Does this sound like you? * After eating a full breakfast, are you hungry before it's time for lunch? * Do you have a hard time stopping once you start to eat bread, pasta, or sweets? * Do you have a tendency to gain weight easily, or if you lose weight, to gain it back again? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may not be experiencing a lack of willpower but rather a physical addiction to carbohydrates. Now, Drs. Rachael and Richard Heller, both retired from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, offer a revolutionary diet that eliminates the cravings and helps you overcome the yo-yo syndrome-permanently-without deprivation. Based on the Hellers' years of research, thousands of case studies, and their own personal victories over cravings and weight (maintaining a 200-pound loss between them!), this healthful, unique diet adapts to any lifestyle and does away with measuring, food exchanges, and calorie counting. A daily Reward Meal, along with wholesome, balanced Complementary Meals, fit easily into busy schedules, restaurant meals, holiday celebrations, and vacations. Filled with sound advice and effective strategies-including wonderful recipes and menu plans-this groundbreaking book helps eliminate carbohydrate cravings and puts you in control of your eating and your weight-for life.Dr. Richard F. Heller is the author of 'The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet: The Lifelong Solution to Yo-Yo Dieting (Signet)' with ISBN 9780451173393 and ISBN 0451173392.
