The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet

The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet - The diet is based on the theories about controlling fat-storing insulin in the body. Insulin, they claim, can be controlled by drastically reducing carbohydrate consumption during most of the day. Based on the book by the Hellers'.
For the first two weeks you eat 2 small meals a day. Each consisting of three or four ounces of protein and two cups of vegetables or salad. The third meal is the reward meal, where you can eat whatever you want within reason, but you only have one hour to eat it.
After the first two weeks, you can pick a snack as well, at either of the 2 small meals, but never carbohydrate-rich foods such as fruit, juices, bread, pasta ect..

The Hellers claim that by restricting carbohydrates during the day, the body releases far less insulin than if you had been eating a high-carb diet at each meal.
