Excerpts from Chapter 3 & 4, The Metabolism Miracle
WHAT HAPPENED? “OTHER DIETS USED TO WORK FOR ME”
By now you have a good understanding of how Metabolism B directs your body to store excess blood sugar into your fat cells. The Metabolism Miracle will help to temper your pancreas, calming the insulin release and fat production so that permanent weight loss can occur. But why wouldn’t any diet help you to lose weight? When your friends with Metabolism A want to lose weight, they can follow any reasonable diet because their metabolism follows the classic formula found in any basic nutrition textbook.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR UNIQUE METABOLISM
I want to assure you that the Metabolism Miracle is not just another low-carb diet. Every other low-carb diet was written for the general public as a means to lose weight and, in some cases, decrease blood lipids. You can never achieve permanent weight loss on standard lowcarb diets that haphazardly introduce the amount, type, and timing of carbohydrates. Standard low-carb diets used by those with metabolism B cause weight regain as soon as carbohydrate is reintroduced. Unlike other low-carb diets, the three steps of the Metabolism Miracle program were designed to retrain your body to process carbohydrate normally rather than overreacting to it. Before you begin the program, it will help to understand how your metabolism differs and causes you to struggle with weight and related health conditions. Think of your weight and any related health issues as the offshoots of a weed. If you simply treat the offshoots with diet restrictions and medications but don’t get to the root, the weed will grow back, often even stronger.
