Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Loss
The Revolutionary Fat-burning Diet for Peak Mental & Physical Performance and Optimum HealthBook - 2000
In the 1980s, Robert Haas was responsible for a diet revolution with his number one best-seller,Eat to Win. Now, withEat to Win for Permanent Fat Loss, he shows not only how to lose weight and dramatically improve your performance in all areas of life, but how to keep the fat off -- forever. With all the recent diet trends -- Eat more protein! Eat more pasta! Fat is your friend! Stay away from carbs! -- it's difficult to determine which program will actually deliver results. Robert Haas's program does just that. Based on cutting-edge research on how and why our bodies use carbs, proteins, and fats, Haas created a "Mediterrasian" diet that combines the best and healthiest aspects of diets from the regions where people live the longest: the Mediterranean and Asia. His approach features a ratio of 50 percent carbohydrates, which includes grains, fruits, and vegetables; 25 percent protein; and 25 percent fat. Haas also provides the specific scientific reasons why this is the ultimate ratio for maximum energy, fitness, and permanent fat loss. Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Lossoffers a remarkably flexible, healthy food plan that encourages the use of both the new "functional" foods (things like tofu hot dogs and soy-chicken nuggets) and treats that most diet plans restrict or forbid entirely, such as chocolate, wine, and coffee. In fact, Haas shows why enjoying chocolate and coffee every day can actually make you healthier, providing both satisfaction and valuable phytonutrients that can prevent illness. "Cheating" is built into the plan, so if you need a true fast-food hamburger (instead of the equally fast Big Max Burger, one of more than fifty recipes included) you can have it! It's the kind of eating plan that truly works for the entire family. As for exercise, Haas's recommendation is also simple: Burn a minimum of 300 calories -- the equivalent of forty-five minutes of walking -- throughout the course of the day, through any activity you choose. Haas's combined food and exercise program can and will change lives. Lose excess body fat and build stronger muscles starting today Eat to Win for Permanent Fat Lossis the first book to explain clearly the key to losing the fat and keeping it off: controlling your body's glycogen levels. Glycogen, the form in which your body stores carbohydrates, helps control appetite, fullness, and fat burning. When you eat according to Robert Haas's plan, you regulate your body's glycogen level and force it to burn away any excess fat. Best of all, the plan allows you to indulge in such forbidden foods as chocolate and coffee while growing slimmer and healthier.
