Is your diet putting your health at risk? A diet loaded with foods that send blood sugar up high and down low, especially "white" foods such as bread, rice, French fries, and baked goods, can jack up your risk of heart disease by damaging your blood vessels and raising your cholesterol. It may even chip away at your memory and increase the risk of certain cancers. If your blood sugar levels regularly soar and crash, your hunger is likely to go up, your energy down, and your waistline out.
Magic Foods is based on the latest nutrition science but is designed for regular folks who just want to know what to eat. No strict eating regimens or crazy rules about carbohydrates, just an explanation of blood sugar solution and 57 "magic" everyday foods that can help you bump your diet into sugar-friendly territory, including barley, avocados, berries, carrots, cheese, eggs, fish, lentils, lamb, pork, chicken, garlic, and turmeric. Add just one of these magic foods to your plate, and you could see results right away.
Each food entry includes an introduction, health benefits, tips for serving or substitutions, "perfect portions" and related recipes. Magic Foods contains more than 100 easy-to-prepare recipes, plus simple meal makeovers, weekly meal plans by calorie count, and cooks' tips that make it incredibly simple to get more of the 57 foods onto your plate.
Don't wait for your doctor to say you have a problem. Your meals will taste delicious and, in addition, they will build insulin resistance, offload dangerous belly fat, guard yourself from diabetes, and feel more fully charged and ready to embrace life every day.
