Slow Carb Cookbook by Dr. Robert S. Anderson
A slow carb diet cookbook is perfect for those who have made the switch to this type of eating. Unlike other diets, where you either starve or over-work your body, the Slow Carb diet puts a better focus on nutrition and good eating habits. In a nutshell, this means eating slower, and avoiding the “burning carbs” craze that’s been taking the whole world by storm recently. The book, by Dr. Michael Allen and Lori Allen, PhD, addresses dietary concerns as well as giving ways to moderate this new way of eating.
The slow-carb diet is perfect for people who want to lose weight healthily, without resorting to crash meals or extreme exercise routines. There are four different phases to this eating plan, and each one builds on the previous one. This means that you’re not going to be cutting out carbohydrates in the short term, but instead, slowly eating more of these healthy foods. By keeping up your intake of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, along with whole grains, you can expect to lose weight quickly, and keep it off for good!
For those who are thinking about starting this new diet, the author provides a helpful guide that helps with meal planning, along with helpful guidelines on how to get started with the diet, and how to stay on it long-term. Dr. Ferriss is a certified nutritionist, and is the creator of the 4-hour body diet, which helps you burn fat and build muscle faster. Since he knows what it takes to get results, he created the slow-carb diet as a way to help out those who aren’t having success with other diet plans.
Although the book is designed for those trying to lose weight, the focus of the chapters and the diets in the Slow Carb Cookbook are healthy living. In fact, there are sections that include helpful tips for eating out, healthy recipes, shopping and preparation, as well as creating a shopping list for the home. While there is some mention of specific food items, the main focus is on healthy living, which includes eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In addition, it has information on the glycemic index, which help control the amount of sugar in your diet, and eating smaller meals throughout the day.
The 4-hour body diet is different than the Ferriss slow-carb diet, and the reason why is because the book does not require a pre-determined number of hours to be spent in bed, in order to work. Instead, the body is allowed to adapt to the low-carb lifestyle for the duration of the book, so you do not have to completely eliminate meat and other animal products from your diet like traditional diets do. Instead, the book encourages you to consume lean protein and healthy carbohydrates. Some people may find this concept intimidating, but as there are no cooking measures indicated, it is easy to create meals using the protein from lean meats and other ingredients found in the book. There are also sources of protein found in the book such as tofu, low-fat cottage cheese, nuts, eggs and soy sauce.
Another important factor that the diet book lacks is a section that emphasizes diet tips for those who are not on the slow-carb diet. For those who are not on this type of diet, the book does not offer helpful tips or suggestions for meal planning and preparation. As a result, the book becomes somewhat less useful to those who are serious about their weight loss goals. However, most diet books do not offer tips for those who are not on the strictest form of the diet.
One of the biggest reasons the Slow-Carb Diet Cookbook is different than most other diet books is that it offers a variety of recipes, in addition to a wealth of information regarding how to incorporate slow-carb ingredients into many traditional meals. Most books focus primarily on recipes that are traditional or “safe” for people on this type of diet. The recipes in this cookbook offer interesting ideas and are easy to prepare. This provides dieters with an opportunity to try new foods and recipes while losing weight.
The author, Robert O. Anderson, PhD, did a thorough analysis of the available data on diets and obesity and determined that the scientific evidence shows that most weight loss results are obtained from making small changes to the diet rather than large drastic lifestyle changes. Based on this research, Dr. Anderson has developed a number of dieting methods that can help you lose weight. He believes that most dieters get too caught up in the media hype about weight loss and fad diets that make unrealistic promises about losing huge amounts of weight in a short period of time. Dr. Anderson’s work is backed by years of study and research, as well as his own extensive experience in nutritional research, personal nutrition, and personal health. This makes the information he gives you sound and accurate. This cookbook is one of the few that offers a comprehensive approach to dieting and weight loss.
