Burn Fat Fast is quite simply the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight. Alternate-day dieting, which involves taking in a very low amount of calories on alternate days, is all the rage - this diet takes it to a whole new level. In this book Patrick Holford outlines how, by combining elements of alternate-day fasting with a low glycemic-load (GL) diet, you can lose fat fast, without going hungry or compromising your health. For those new to the low-GL diet it is a way to keep you blood sugar even. Why do this? Because if your blood sugar level resembles a rollercoaster ride you'll have a lot of insulin in your system - and insulin is the fat-storing hormone. In Burn Fat Fast you'll find:* Simple, easy-to-follow guidelines on how the diet works* An outline of what to eat and what to avoid on both phases of the diet* Guidance on fitting the diet into your lifestyle* A short, highly effective fat-burning exercise routine developed by former Gladiator and Olympic athlete Kate StaplesAnd if you need any more encouragement, consider this: as well as encouraging the storage of fat, insulin promotes disease and ageing, so by combining a low-GL diet with alternate-day fasting you will not only lose fat fast but also improve your health and longevity.
