There are more obese people in the world today than ever before in human history, however, there comes a point when anyone who is overweight will consider and really need to loss weight.

Today, there are many different types of diets to follow for those on battling their weight, and who have finally made the decision to reduce their weight. However, with so many diets to choose form, this can sometimes pose a dilemma on which is the better choice for a diet to follow. So, with a bid to clear this doubt, Dr. Christian B. Allan and Wolfgang Lutz came up with the great book, Life Without Bread.
The book Life Without Bread expounds the advantages to following a low-carbohydrate diet. Upon reading this book, you learn the benefits associated with this diet, and how you can lead a healthy life. Dr. Allan wrote this book only after more than forty years of research with over 10,000 patients nd through this research, you learn about the mysteries of nutrition and how it is possible to reverse, and in some cases, cure some chronic cases of diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, heart disease, obesity. In addition to all of this, the book also helps to boost strength and endurance.
Though it may not be that easy to make all of the necessary life changes overnight, it proves to be faster and easier after you read the book, Life Without Bread. In the process, you learn to gain control over your method of health and nutrition. The 240 pages of the book Life Without Bread, also shows how it is possible to slowly regain control over your food habits with minor, but important lifestyle and food changes. The advantage this book has over other books is that other books only focus on different low carb diets that can bring about weight loss. However, Life Without Bread is a book that shows how it is possible to restore and heal different health conditions easily and efficiently.
This is also a book that offers a historical survey of the different means doctors and nutritionists adopt in defining a low carb diet, according to Lutz and Allan, a low carb diet is a diet where you should not consume more than 72 grams of carbohydrates in a day. The remaining part of the diet has to constitute of protein and different plant and animal fats.
Life Without Bread also discusses the effects carbohydrates have on the different functions of hormones on the body. The book is written in laymen’s terms so that anyone can understand all the endocrinological details with the numerous graphs, illustrations and references that are found in the book. The part where there is mention of improvement of heart disease with a low carb diet needs more attention as it counter attacks the phony notion that saturated fats and cholesterol found in animal foods usually starts this condition. Instead, the author explains the physiological benefits saturates have and point out the reasoning found in Lipid Hypothesis.
It is interesting to read the chapter in the book Life Without Bread that explains the evolutionary basis for low carb eating. Lutz and Allan show that low carb, high fat and high protein diets were the diets adopted by humans a long time back, and is basically the best diet for humans today. In the past humans did not have as many chronic diseases as we have today with our present diets. Moreover, they also explain that it is the high carb and low fat diet that is actually alien to human beings. After reading the book, you will learn the best diet you have to follow for a healthy and comfortable life.
