Isabel is adamant about getting sugar foods completely out of your current diet. The carbs in them serve no purpose, other than they taste good...and they store huge amounts of fat on your waist and hips.
Processed foods are full of unhealthy fat, chemical preservatives, empty carbs, and way too many calories. When you eat processed food (...and this includes bread, pasta, crackers, baked goods, boxed cereals, and pizza) your body attempts to breakdown the toxic chemicals first to get them OUT of your system. Meanwhile, your blood sugar level spikes, and the pancreas dumps an excessive load of insulin into your system.This, in turn, inhibits the use of stored fat to be burned as energy...so it stays on your waist and hips!
Is it any wonder why Isabel is so determined for you to wean yourself away from these two formidable sources of bad carbs?
The Diet Solution Program has its foundation in making food choices from those provided by Mother Nature...NOT ones that come out of boxes, cans, or shrink wrap.
Isabel puts it pretty simple on page 15 of her Diet Solution book, "Perhaps the most important step toward weight loss and overall health is to identify which foods to eat. To save yourself a lot of time, just follow this guideline: If it’s natural — that is, it grows or otherwise occurs in nature—eat it; if it’s artificial, don’t. In other words, if a food contains ingredients that you can’t pronounce or define, steer clear."
Good carbs for Isabel's nutritional program will come mainly from fresh fruits and vegetables. The Diet Solution bad carbs will come out of cardboard, paper, or plastic containers.
