Annotation

Alternate-day dieting is the latest weight-loss sensation. Burn Fat Fast takes that every-other-day dieting approach and improves on it, making it healthier and more effective.

Publisher Description

BURN FAT FAST is quite simply the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight. Alternate-day dieting, which involves taking in a very low amount of calories on alternate days, is all the rage - this diet takes it to a whole new level.

In this book Patrick Holford outlines how, by combining elements of alternate-day fasting with a low glycemic-load (GL) diet, you can lose fat fast, without going hungry or compromising your health. For those new to the low-GL diet it is a way to keep you blood sugar even. Why do this? Because if your blood sugar level resembles a rollercoaster ride you'll have a lot of insulin in your system - and insulin is the fat-storing hormone. In BURN FAT FAST you'll find:

  • Simple, easy-to-follow guidelines on how the diet works

  • An outline of what to eat and what to avoid on both phases of the diet

  • Guidance on fitting the diet into your lifestyle

  • A short, highly effective fat-burning exercise routine developed by former Gladiator and Olympic athlete Kate Staples

And if you need any more encouragement, consider this: as well as encouraging the storage of fat, insulin promotes disease and ageing, so by combining a low-GL diet with alternate-day fasting you will not only lose fat fast but also improve your health and longevity.
