Author Diane Kress shares more about her “Metabolism Miracle” plan

In Episode 296 we heard new terminology describing those of us who have an aversion to consuming carbohydrate. The phrase “Metabolism B” created by registered dietitian Diane Kress is a very effective way to explain that for about half of the overweight population, we have an issue that is not solved by the conventional low-fat diet approach. It does an effective job of hammering home the point that there is a faction of people who NEED an alternative to the so-called “healthy” high-carb, low-fat and that’s livin’ la vida low-carb. Kress is back again today for Part 2 of my 90-minute interview with her.

In Episode 297 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” Kress expands further upon the principles outlined in her #1 bestselling book The Metabolism Miracle: 3 Easy Steps to Regain Control of Your Weight…Permanently. Although I didn’t agree with everything she said, especially regarding her assertion that there is a NEED for carbohydrate and her aversion to consuming saturated fat-based foods, I think Kress is definitely on to something positive for people with “Metabolism B” who need to adhere to a carbohydrate-restricted lifestyle change.

In Part 2 of my interview, you’ll hear Kress tell you what’s wrong with The South Beach Diet, why she believes saturated fat is not necessarily good to consume on a low-carb weight loss diet, the reason she says why some carbohydrates are needed for you to be healthy, the purpose behind spreading your carbs out throughout the day, why it is paramount you eat something at least every five hours, why eating at night is not as bad as you think, the reason why Phase 3 is a 33/33/33 macronutrient ratio, what the liver does to feed your body sugar when you don’t eat at night or breakfast, the mechanism behind the diabetes drug Metformin, why MetB people will GAIN weight if they use the treadmill on an empty stomach, how detrimental the scale can be to gauge your weight loss progress and what is actually better for measuring success, why a low-carb weight loss looks like twice as much loss compared with a low-fat weight loss, why a high-fat diet slows the stored body fat-burning process even when carbs are restricted, and how to stay positive during a weight loss effort.
