Starch blockers are a natural, non-prescription partial protein derived from white kidney beans. Taken before meals, they bind with the enzyme that digests starch, so most starch passes through the body without releasing calories, similarly to fibre. There are no side effects, but a huge benefit: up to 1/3 of the calories you eat can be instantly, safely neutralized! The Starch Blocker Diet provides a three-step program for achieving safe, lasting weight loss using starch blockers.
This no-hunger, non-denial strategy lets you eat a richly satisfying diet while still losing weight. You'll find formulas for individualizing the program to fit your personal caloric and lifestyle requirements, sample menus, and more than 100 delicious, high-starch recipes, many by James Beard Award Winning Chef Philippe Boulot.
