There is a reason that some people can eat all they want and seemingly never gain a pound, while others count every calorie, exercise, and can't lose an ounce. Millions of people--an estimated 45 percent of dieters--have Metabolism B, a condition that causes the body to over-process carbohydrate foods into excess body fat. Registered dietitian Diane Kress's scientifically based, easy-to-follow program has helped thousands of people with Metabolism B lose weight and keep it off.

As someone who struggled with Metabolism B for years, Kress knows firsthand the frustration of diets that don't work. The solution? A simple, three-step, carb-controlling program that stabilizes blood glucose levels and reprograms the metabolism to melt away fat. The Metabolism Miracle starts working on Day 1.

author is an R.D. who herself developed type 2 diabetes while following low fat calorie counted diet with exercise.

this diet is meant to treat metabolic syndrome. (an 8 week very low carb period--25 grams per day, followed by progressively more carbs (about 110 to 180 grams/day)
I am not this despiritted--25 grams is very very low!)

2 ideas that were new to me were that about 45 % of people have a change to the shape of the insulin receptors on their fat cells when those cells become-well--fat--ie stretched. When receptor shapes are changed insulin resistance occurs. the other 55% of pple can get very very fat and still maintain the perfect insulin receptor shape on fat cells.

the other idea in this book is that a major problem for some people is that the liver 'overshoots' its glycogen stores into bloodstream when meals are too far apart (more than 5 hours or during the night) with resulting overshoot in insulin and then low bloodsugar and carb cravings--thus a person can actually gain weight by skipping meals...
I like the coleslaw dressing....
