It entails consuming proteins and fats throughout the day, then “carbing up” later in the day, often with fast-digesting carb sources such as cake (yes, cake!) in order to blast fat. The premise: When the body has few carbs throughout the day, the amount of glucose in the bloodstream is limited, so your body will draw on its fat stores for fuel. Research shows that insulin sensitivity is higher in the morning than in the evening, which means both muscle and fat cells are more receptive to carbs (glucose) earlier in the day. If you’ve just finished a workout, the insulin will help quickly shuttle the carbs plus the other nutrients you consume to your muscles to help repair and rebuild the tissue. Earlier in the day, the insulin will typically cause those carbs to become stored as fat. But if you steer clear of carbs as a fuel source throughout most of the day, blood-sugar levels remain low, so your body will burn more fat for fuel. And skipping breakfast didn’t prompt gorging later in the day, either. Starting midmorning, Kiefer says to eat lightly, consuming only protein and fats for the majority of the day. Because you’re eating little to no carbs, there will not be much glucose in the bloodstream, so your body will draw on its fat stores for fuel. Or later), begin consuming carbs in a post-workout meal; continue loading up on carbs throughout the evening.
Not only is it difficult to lose weight, but it is also difficult to maintain that weight loss.

Lean beef, turkey and poultry are examples of foods that are great lean protein sources. Protein requires more energy to digest than carbohydrates and fat. Whole grain cereal is filled with fiber and complex carbohydrates. These nutrients help boost the metabolism and keep the insulin levels low. Studies have shown that people who get adequate amounts of fiber have an easier time maintaining a healthy body weight. Fiber not only keeps the insulin levels low, but it also helps promote a feeling of satiety. Vegetables are filled with fiber and other nutrients that help promote weight loss.

This book is excellent. If you workout at home only without a gym this probably won't work for you but if you're a gym person this is a great book. I should mention that i really like the diversity of fitness models. This book is like having a personal trainer! Again, i have lots of exercise experience but i still find this book to be a fresh edititon to my fitness book collection. If you like muscle & fitness hers magazine you'll really like all the workouts in one easy to ready, and pretty, book. Was this review helpful to you? I just picked this book up at B&N yesterday and for some of the very reasons previously listed by the other two posters. I love all of the great ideas it has to offer and the diversity of the women in the book.
I started off so strong, lifting heavy and on track with my diet. Then I went to BC to visit my parents, friends and attend the Cloverdale Rodeo - I'm SUCH a country girl. I will admit I did well until I went to BC, there's something about going home that instigates binges, crap eating and weight gain.that only continued once I got back to Calgary. I posted on Facebook my Personal Challenge: 20 Days of Clean Eating and consistent Exercise.
