Have your diets stopped working for you? Do you have a chronic lack of energy? High blood pressure or cholesterol? Excess weight that won't budge? Does type 2 diabetes run in your family? Do you feel older than your age? After listening to client after client answer yes to these questions, Adele Puhn began to see that many were suffering from insulin resistance-a Metabolic Mix-Up so life affecting that it literally controls our body chemistry, fueling our cravings and starving our cells of needed nutrients. Insulin resistance not only prevents us from losing weight, but can also put us at a risk for developing life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes as we age.
The Midlife Miracle Diet is your road map to a healthier, more vibrant, and more fulfilling way of life. The secret to the diet is an eating plan that controls blood sugar and limits carbohydrates-without deprivation and unrealistic restrictions. Carbs, fats, sugars, and proteins are all included in moderation, but carefully timed and paired to maintain stable blood sugar throughout the day. Insulin function is further enhanced with targeted supplements and exercise. Following this program, you will lose weight, lower your risks, and boost your energy by controlling the chemistry that has been controlling you.
