Improve your health and lose weight while eating more fat!
By now everyone knows that a low-carb diet can cause dramatic weight loss. But the authors of this book point out that this weight loss is really just a side effect of a much deeper, more significant, biochemical change -- reduced insulin levels.
As we age, insulin levels tend to rise. But higher insulin is also, in turn, a cause of further aging. In particular, high insulin has been implicated in heart disease and most other "diseases of aging."
By controlling insulin, through a program of low-carb eating, exercise, and nutritional supplementation, we can encourage many positive health effects, including: fat loss, increased energy, enhanced mental clarity, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and slowed aging.

"Carbohydrates are the real dietary culprit, not fat. Carbohydrates lead to increased insulin, causing weight gain and a wide array of health problems."
