Many experts agree that a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet should be an effective way to gain control of weight problems. But statistics show that though we are consuming less fat, Americans are actually becoming fatter, not "fitter." Ted Broer challenges traditional thinking and offers a healthy alternative that reveals new findings in biochemistry. Maximum Fat Loss shows readers why high-carb/low-fat diets don't work-and what does. Readers will learn how to maintain muscle mass and increase their metabolism while losing body fat. They'll discover why carbohydrates increase body fat, how hormones control weight loss and gain, genetic predisposition for fat gain, what foods to eat and what foods to avoid, what supplements produce healthy results, and much, much more.
