Jun 16, Kimberly rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book because it dealt a lot more with the science and domino effect of hormones and chemical reactions in our bodies more than just "don't eat bread.
I buy a book expecting to get a full book, not 20 pages and the rest recipes so this did not disappoint. Nov 28, Lynn Davidson rated it really liked it Shelves: reviewed. I am not the one who read this book as I purchased it for, and had it sent to, a friend. He found it to be well-written with good information. It has helped him understand the relationship between diet and a pre-diabetic condition.
Mar 17, Denise rated it it was ok. This book is a complete nutritional program to prevent and reverse insulin resistance, lose weight, clear mental fuzziness, increase energy. Sounds like the whole western world had better start reading some labels!?!?! Hope this one saves my life: reads like it was written for me.

Non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans, should form your main source of carbohydrates. The types of fats you take in also are important. Because excess omega-6s promote insulin resistance and are pro-inflammatory and carcinogenic, you should eliminate all cooking oils except olive oil.
This includes corn, safflower and soybean oils, which are all high in omega-6 fatty acids. Trans-fatty acids-found in fried foods, most margarine and foods that contain partially hydrogenated oils-also promote insulin resistance, so they, too, should be avoided. The emphasis in the diet should be on the omega-3 and omega9 fatty acids, such as those in cold-water fish and olive oil.

10 Things Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Metabolic Syndrome
It gives real practical information, including some very tasty and, I should add, very simple recipes. There also is a week-long menu plan. In addition, we devote a chapter to navigating through supermarkets and the menus of different types of restaurants-Italian, Japanese, Chinese, etc. Most restaurants are very accommodating to special requests. For example, you can order a chicken sandwich minus the bun, and most places are willing to substitute a salad or steamed broccoli for fries.
I've found that many restaurants will allow these substitutions for free, but if you have to pay a dollar extra, that's a small investment for protecting yourself against a condition that accelerates aging and increases the risk of degenerative diseases. Smith: Let me restate your question more broadly: "How is our Anti-X diet different from the other popular high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets on the market?

I'm not sure a lot of people can thrive on all of the saturated fat found in the Atkins diet, at least not without balancing the saturated fat with heart healthy omega-3 fats. I'm certain people shouldn't be snacking on deep-fried pork rinds; they contain the worst types of fats! Some of the other diets recommend too many diary products, and most of us in the natural foods industry know that dairy allergies are very common.

Some of the other diets impose practically religious rituals, e. The Anti-X diet is much less complicated and easier to follow.
Passwater: What happens when people go off the Anti-X diet? Do they gain their weight back? Smith: This is a question I'm asked often, and I think there are some assumptions in that question that are off the mark. Should someone go on a healthy diet and lose weight and lower blood pressure-and then go back to eating an unhealthy, disease-promoting diet? Of course not! That would be like saying eat organically to reduce your risk of cancer, and when your risk goes down, then pig out with abandon on pesticide-laden food. What all of us need to understand is that the Anti-X diet is the way we should be eating most of the time.
While you can indulge in a high-carbohydrate food from time to time or on a special occasion-if you're not overweight or don't have any other indicators of Syndrome X-you shouldn't make a habit of eating this way or you'll be headed for disease. I think the idea that the natural foods industry was founded on is that people should eat a healthy diet for life, not just for a few months.
We have to remember the roots of our industry and that there are certain "foods" we should make a point of avoiding, at least nearly all the time.
There's an enormous amount of junk masquerading as healthy and natural foods at the trade shows and in health food stores. Rice cakes are worse than sugar in terms of glucose control. There are too many highly refined cereals that are promoted because they are organic. Refined organic wheat is no better than refined nonorganic wheat in terms of what it does to blood sugar levels. There are also way too many sweets posing as natural sweets. The body doesn't care whether sweets are organic and all natural or not; it reacts to them the same way.

Challem: Supplements tend to be overlooked in the other popular diet books, but they are very important. Let me elaborate on my personal experience. I had been taking 50 mg of alpha-lipoic acid and many other supplements daily for years. I was following the Anti-X diet at the same time, so I don't know if the extra alpha-lipoic acid alone lowered my glucose-but the research certainly indicates that it can.
My gut feeling is that the extra alpha-lipoic acid and the therapeutic diet probably worked synergistically to reverse the insulin resistance I had and cause a lowering of my blood glucose levels. This often is the case with supplements. They are terrific complements to a healthy diet because they provide raw materials the body needs to function more optimally. Berkson: Alpha-lipoic acid is the key supplement recommended in the book. This vitamin-like nutrient plays crucial roles in the burning of glucose for energy and in liver function.
Liver function may seem unrelated, but it is this organ and the pancreas that orchestrate how the body manages glucose and insulin. When the liver is diseased, glucose tolerance goes out the window. Alpha-lipoic acid improves liver function in a number of ways, such as by promoting the production of new, healthy liver cells and by boosting levels of the antioxidant glutathione, which is essential for liver function.
