The Hybrid Diet

Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne
Authors:
Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne

The Hybrid Diet is a radically different, practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and substantially reduce your risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia.Recent research has shown that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. The drawback is that it is difficult to stick to - because most people love carbs. But, as The Hybrid Diet demonstrates, we don't need to choose. The human body has been designed through millions of years of evolution to burn two different sources of fuel - glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables) and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) - and to switch between them when food is scarce.The point of The Hybrid Diet is to show you how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious - one that is based on how your body works best.

Burn Fat Fast

Patrick Holford, Kate Staples

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.
