From David Zinczenko, Good Morning America’s health and wellness editor and bestselling author ofEat This, Not That! and Zero Belly Diet, comes an easy-to-follow, science-based regimen designed to retrain your taste buds, curb your cravings, and set your hormones back in balance while paving the way for rapid weight loss
If you have a stubborn belly you’ve tried unsuccessfully to shed, most likely sugar’s to blame. Hidden sugar is everywhere and frustratingly difficult to dodge. For example, an order of boneless chicken wings with BBQ sauce from one popular restaurant contains the sugar equivalent of four donuts. A family-size portion of onion rings from a well-known fast-food joint packs 51 grams of sugar—that’s 13 teaspoons! Even pain-relieving pills are coated with high fructose corn syrup! So don’t disown your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. That’s not your nemesis. It’s the hidden sugars we eat that have made losing weight harder than ever.
But you can have your brownie and lose your belly too. You can drop pounds, dramatically improve your health, and still enjoy your favorite sweets. With The Sugar Swap Diet, #1 New York Times bestselling author David Zinczenko shares an easy-to-follow, scientifically proven plan based on super swaps of all your favorite foods, plus one simple nutrition rule: Make sure the carbs you eat have as much fiber as they do sugar. This fiber-to-sugar ratio helps to magically conquer your addiction to the sweet stuff and prevent the blood sugar surge that leads to abdominal fat and increased risk of a plethora of modern health issues.
