The Hershberg Diet
Discover How the 4th Macro Can Help You Shed Pounds and Beat the Metabolic SyndromeBook - 2007
The Hershberg Diet is not another fad diet, it's a weight loss system based on hard science. Dr. Melissa Hershberg reveals that the key to lasting weight loss is the fourth macronutrient. Because most people -- including physicians, nutritionists, and dieticians -- recognize only three -- protein, carbohydrates, and fat -- the discovery of a fourth macronutrient forever changes the way readers view food, eating, and nutritional labels. In addition, readers learn about hotty foods -- foods that don't spike blood sugar and insulin levels but which do elevate the body's metabolism and create the proper hormonal environment for weight loss. The book features an easy-to-follow four-phase plan complete with recipes and menus, as well as tips to help readers design their own customized strategy for shedding pounds. Best of all, there is no hunger or deprivation required. By eating foods high in the fourth macronutrient, readers can eat as much as they like and still lose weight.
