Carbs are back! Learn how resistant starch has been shown to be effective in lowering cholesterol and high blood pressure, and so much more-- all without the gassy aftereffects of fiber!

McMillan Palgrave

The first cookbook to capitalize on the fat-blasting, health-boosting benefits of resistant starch

After years of being relegated to the dietary sidelines, carbohydrates are making a comeback. Nutrition research shows that carbs have their place in a sensible eating plan—and a certain kind of carb, known as resistant starch, may even enhance the body's natural fat-burning power.

Resistant starch delivers fewer calories per gram than regular starches while increasing post-meal satisfaction. It may also improve blood-sugar control, lower cancer risk, and foster healthy digestion.

Carb Lover's Diet Cookbook provides the necessary tools and tips to make the most of resistant starch, including:
-the best food sources of resistant starch—potatoes, bananas, breads, and more
-complete instructions for cooking with resistant starch (cooling foods before serving is key)
-150 recipes featuring resistant starch ingredients

This is a bible for anyone who wants to understand the "good carb/bad carb" problem. A must read, must have inyour kitchen shelve, among your cookbooks. Very easy to understand and makes lots of sense. HIGHLY reccommend.
