Low-carb diets work! Just look at the continued sales of the venerable Atkins diet and of the upstarts, Wheat Belly and Paleo. Even so, low-carb diets are hard to stick to and often unhealthy. Laura Lamont, a qualified nutritional therapist who introduced the UK to the revolutionary Shirataki Noodle, brings us a healthy new take on low-carb dieting. Lamont explains how eating a nutritionally sound combination of controlled amounts of complex carbohydrates, protein, and “good” fats (in foods such as avocados, salmon and flaxseed) at the right times of day can bring about healthy, long-lasting weight loss. Now there’s no need to deprive yourself of any food group – and you don’t even have to give up bread! Working with clients at her weight-loss clinic, she discovered that including protein and healthy fats in every meal helps to boost metabolism, stabilize blood sugar levels and curb cravings, leading to effective weight loss that could see you shedding at least a kilo a week. The book includes information on the nutritional science behind the diet, as well as practical charts to help you identify which foods you should be eating, and meal plans. There are more than 75 mouth-watering recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners – and even desserts! And each recipe comes with a nutritional analysis. Successfully tried and tested and drawing on the latest scientific research, The New Low-Carb Diet is the 21st-century way to eat well, lose weight and feel healthier than ever.
