The Book in One Sentence:
How the hormones Insulin and Glucagon control weight gain, while the Glycemic Index that measures them allows you to eat yourself thin!


Once the most frustrating and heart-breaking goal on earth, today controlling one's weight takes on a whole new light.  By understanding the process of how our bodies turn food into fat, you'll take the first step toward a life-long process of eating that will keep you slim, trim, and healthy ... forever!

If you've ever wondered why counting calories doesn't help you lose weight, the answer is simple: not all calories turn into fat.  Breaking food down into the five basic ingredients that build, operate, and energize our bodies, however, makes sense.


Proteins build body cells.  Carbohydrates create energy and fat reserves.  Fats produce future energy through fat reserves.  Fibers help the body digest food.  Water aids in digestion and maintaining healthy cells. 


Now, a scientific breakthrough in understanding the food-to-fat phenomenon makes controlling stored fats (i.e., your weight!) easy.  Carbohydrates and fats are turned by insulin into stored fat.  Proteins, fiber, and water trigger glucagon into burning stored fat.  These little-known medical realities are what make losing weight and keeping it off a sure thing.  Once you understand how to use these principles to your benefit, it's only a matter of time before you develop a whole new outlook on eating and on life.  The results: a slimmer, trimmer, and healthier you!  By combining the right foods (and waiting a minimum of time between mixing insulin-triggering foods with glucagon-producing foods), you can literally begin to eat yourself thin! 


No more binging, no more cringing, no more crying, no more trying.  Just a little common sense, an understanding of how the body functions, and a new approach to how you eat will launch you on your way to lost weight, lost inches, and lost body fat.  For the first time in your life, you'll feel great, look great, and live longer than you ever thought possible.  As a bonus, the author's own instant-gourmet meal guides actually make losing weight rewarding.  And you do it all ... by Eating Yourself Thin.

Author's Qualifications for Writing This Book:
I was never able to accept the fact that my life of frustration with diet programs and philosophies was destined to condemn me to an eternity of spending money, popping pills, starving myself, and gaining weight in the process.  There had to be another approach.  By delving into the way the body converts food into fat and--conversely--fat into energy, I was able for the first time in my life to understand an amazingly simple and elegantly complete way to approach a lifetime of intelligent eating.  All without binging, without cutting corners, without starving, and without, well, doing without!  I lost 12 pounds in four weeks.  I gained new energy.  I'm healthier overall.  I'm eating the foods I want to eat.  And, best of all, I'm back on track to a longer, healthier lifestyle ... forever.  It's just that simple.  It's just that amazing.  It's Eating Yourself Thin.
