What You Should Know
CarbohydrateAddicts.com is a comprehensive website available for anyone. They stress that a carbohydrate addiction may be the cause of so many diet failures due to an insulin imbalance that causes you to “lose control” and submit to the carbohydrate cravings. The website offers a clickable link for email correspondence with Dr’s Rachael and Richard Heller, the creators of the web page.
This website is full of links that direct you to books and articles that may help you understand your situation, personal success stories, and programs available for both adults and children.
Carbohydrate addiction is not a matter of will power; it is a matter of biology, plain and simple. It is defined as “a compelling hunger, craving, or desire for carbohydrate rich foods; an escalating, recurring need or drive for starches, snack food, junk food, or sweets.” This couple claims to have found a way to lose weight, and maintain the loss, without cravings, calorie counting or fearing the possibility of regaining. They hope this website will bring you to realize it can be done that you are not a failure and you should not remain hopeless when it comes to the battle of the bulge. They provide you with purchase links for 4 books and multiple articles purported to help you maintain and overcome your addiction to carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are a mainstream staple in most diets and economies around the globe. Breads, pastas, rices and potatoes are mainstays that are LOADED with fat producing carbohydrates. Other offenders include bagels, chocolate, crackers, fruit and fruit juices, potato chips, pretzels and popcorn. When was the last time you saw a meal advertised on television or prepared a meal or snack without one of these ingredients?
- Everyone could be healthier by lowering their intake of carbohydrate rich foods.
- This is a FREE website with tips and advice, not a website offering pills for popping and false hopes.
- Many people today are too busy to sit down and read a book about weight loss, and it almost seems wrong to sit sedentary and read as opposed to work out!
- The website itself appears quite bland, and may be overlooked on a whim.
I am sure that the Dr’s Rachael and Richard Heller have helped many people even helping themselves to lose a combined 200 pounds alone is amazing. I just find it counterproductive to think that today’s lifestyles are so often devoid of adequate exercise and that sitting down to read a book about weight maintenance and lifestyle changes might make a difference. We should all realize that time can and must be carved from the day for health. It will only take a few minutes more at lunch to make sure your choice is healthy, and if you will opt to walk a block or take the stairs up the office, you will have succeeded already where others have failed.
