The authors discuss the biochemical roles of hormones in the metabolic process to demonstrate why low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet programs don't always result in weight loss. They also present the case for their high-protein, low-carbohydrate alternative. The key is preventing, through diet, the overproduction of insulin, which controls fat storage and is triggered by eating carbohydrates. Their eating plan includes lists of protein and carbohydrate counts for common foods, a collection of recipes, and a discussion of the necessity of exercise. Cholesterol, vitamins, minerals and various risk factors are also covered. Meals include an avocado filed with mayonnaise, hard-boiled eggs, and chicken chunks, a smoked salmon smothered in cream cheese, and a double-patty burger topped with bacon, cheese, and avocado.
