There’s a reason diets don’t work. Science has shown that a class of carbohydrates, called “Addictocarbs,” light up the brain’s pleasure centers and make it almost impossible to moderate eating.
If you’re struggling to lose weight, counting calories and shrinking portions are not the answer. The answer lies in how your brain reacts when you eat certain foods—foods that directly stimulate the addiction center of the brain, causing irresistible cravings.
But there’s a way to overcome this addiction. It’s called The Addictocarb Diet, and it’s a cure—not a fad.
After losing his father at an early age to obesity-related illness and a lifetime of struggling with his own weight and diabetes as a result, Bruce Roseman, M.D., transformed his life and the lives of close to a thousand of his patients with a simple and effective diet based on the latest findings in addiction neuroscience.
The Addictocarb Diet: Avoid the 9 Highly Addictive Carbs While Eating Anything Else You Want explains that obesity stems from our addiction to these nine carbs, proven by new brain imaging techniques from the emerging field of addiction neuroscience. Once dieters accept the addiction—and treat it like such—losing weight and keeping it off is almost effortless.
After reframing the way we look at cravings for unhealthful food, Dr. Roseman presents readers with a comprehensive, three-step diet: Shaking the Addiction, Addictocarb Rehab, and finally, Staying Slim. On the The Addictocarb Diet, you can eat many healthy, flavorful things, including fruits, nuts, vegetables, cheese, fish, chicken, beef, and even Addictocarb Alternatives, foods that look and taste like Addictocarbs but are much healthier.
Unlike the trendy, throwaway fad diets, The Addictocarb Diet improves your overall health and can be beneficial for almost anyone, including those with gluten or lactose sensitivities, vegetarians, those with prostate problems, diabetes, and other ailments, and even those just looking to just get rid of that spare tire.
The Addictocarb Diet gives you tools for success, containing tips for how to handle dietary lapses, how to navigate fast food challenges, managing or avoiding diabetes, as well as answers to frequently asked questions from hundreds of patient inquiries. You’ll also find sample recipes from Dr. Roseman and his patients, suggested menus, along with the helpful Addictocarb Diet Self-Assessment Tool.
Losing weight doesn’t have to be a losing battle. It’s time to overcome your addiction to foods. The Addictocarb Diet is here.
