Product Description

Lose Weight and Lower Blood Sugar While Still Eating The Carbs You Love!

Eating starches can make losing weight nearly impossible. Unfortunately, many of our favorite foods—pasta, bread, rice—are the worst offenders! But who wants to cut out these delicious dishes and feel deprived?

The Sugar Blockers Diet is a solution! Certain foods can slow the effect of starches on blood sugar, meaning no more crashes, no more cravings, and a smart eating strategy that can be maintained for life. These foods are called sugar blockers and include all kinds of everyday indulgences from steak to cheese to a glass of wine. And learning how to include them at every meal will not only help you lose weight but also help you reverse insulin resistance, defending your body against diabetes.

In addition to a robust list of sugar blocking foods and strategies, you'll find:
  • A proven plan on which real men and women lost up to 18½ pounds and 9¼ inches in just 6 short weeks
  • More than 50 tantalizing, nutrient-rich recipes
  • An easy, fun exercise program proven to balance your blood sugar and help the pounds melt away
It doesn't matter if you're a strict vegetarian, a voracious carnivore, or an incurable chocoholic. The Sugar Blockers Diet will show you how to decrease your waistline while still enjoying all your favorite dishes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! June 4 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for anyone who is trying to lower their blood sugar. I've started using the plan outlined in this book and I think it is making a difference. The charts in the back of the book with foods and their glycemic index is also very helpful. I refer to it all the time. There is lots of good information and it's easy to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Like It Jan. 7 2013
By N. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I don't know if I'd call this a diet book. I gave it a four star (instead of a three) because he goes into a lot of detail about how the foods he recommends block sugar. I found that to be really interesting and have not seen that anywhere before (i.e. some foods block sugar in our intestine and some work on our livers and still others work in our stomach).

I can attest to the fact that the vinegar sugar block and the extra virgin olive oil do work. I take a table spoon of olive oil a day broken up in three teaspoons a day in three meals to control my crazy craving for sugar and it works wonders. I just don't want candy anymore when I have my olive oil. I've switched to a salad dressing also that is mostly vinegar and oil and that helps as well.

I do recommend the book, but he talks a lot about eating low G.I. too and the sugar blockers are to be used when you cannot eat low G.I.

The book is most excellent in knowledge, practical and reader friendly. I have modified my blood sugar habits and lost weight. Most importantly I feel much better. I am 65 and am experiencing a new body, much like the one I had years ago. Delighted ! ! !

5.0 out of 5 stars sugar blocker Jan. 15 2013
By KRK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anyone who is borderline diabetic or has diabetes, this book has a wealth of wonderful information to help you gain control of your glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, etc. I lost 6# the first 2 weeks following this very easy eating style change. It's not really a diet, it's just what foods to eat first. Very easy to follow.

This book is incredible. You can do it! It really works. I was working out and counting calories and couldn't lose weight because I was having blood sugar problems. I've lost 6 lb. and 5 inches in 3 weeks. I don't feel tired anymore! No more low blood sugars!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent information for a non-diabetic Jan. 8 2013
By S. Sellers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a bit overweight - trying to lose but it is slow. With all of the ads on TV and warnings from TV doctors about diabetes, i was afraid that I might be headed in that direction. With tests, i discovered that so far at the age of 65, I am not even pre-diabetic, but I considered this book's suggestions about blocking the bad effects of high glycemic foods as healthy way to help avoid this disease while I continue to lose weight. I would recommend this book to anyone who is concerned about the possibility of this disease.
