Description: Big Belly? High Body Mass Index? High Blood Pressure?If this sounds like you, you may be one of the millions of North Americans with Metabolic Syndrome. Predicted by medical experts as the likely number one risk factor for heart disease-Metabolic Syndrome, or MSX, describes a constellation of conditions, including those mentioned above, of which the body' resistance to insulin is a primary feature. A byproduct of obesity, 25 percent of the adult U.S. population is now estimated to have MSX.The Metabolic Syndrome Program offers readers a sensible lifestyle-based approach to treating MSX. One of the first books to name and address this condition, The Metabolic Syndrome Program outlines a realistic plan of treatment-without magic pills or quick-fixes to a growing and little-known threat to public health.The Metabolic Syndrome Program includes:Facts about MSX, the risk factors associated with it and its impact on your overall healthThe role of nutrition in combating MSXThe truth about fats, carbs and proteins and the balance needed to maintain optimal healthAll the latest research on insulin resistance, Type 2 Diabetes, hypertension and Cardiovascular disease-the worst outcomes of metabolic syndromeDetailed information on natural supplements that can be used to combat the risk factors of MSXRecipes and meal plans that will help you make the immediate lifestyle changes required if you are one of the millions at risk for MSX"Karlene Karst has done an excellent job outlining the seriousness of obesity and insulin resistance, and their ensuing complications,while providing a nutrition and lifestyle action plan to help you get back to the basics of good health."--Sam Graci, author of the Path to Phenomenal Health and The Food Connection"The Metabolic Syndrome Program provides an effective comprehensive solution by detailing a clear, rational approach to a complex topic."--Michael T.

5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsEXTREMELY INFORMATIVE
Posted by JODY MCCREA on 4/25/2006
THIS BOOK PROVIDES A VERY DETAILED OUTLINE OF WHAT THE METABOLIC SYNDROME IS AND EXACTLY HOW IT WREAKS HAVOC ON YOUR HEALTH, IT HAS A VERY CLEAR SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION ON THE METABOLIC PROCESSES OF INSULIN AND ITS REACTION WITH OTHER HORMONES, BASED PRIMARILY ON WHAT YOU EAT. THE PROGRAM OUTLINES A PLAN OF SUPPLEMENTS, EXERCISE, AND DIET. I HAVE BEEN ON THE PROGRAM A LITTLE OVER A WEEK AND MY BLOOD SUGARS HAVE DROPPED SO MUCH THAT I HAD TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF MEDICATION I WAS TAKING. THE DIET BASICALLY CALLS FOR YOU TO GIVE UP SODA, DESERTS, SUGAR, AND TO FOCUS ON WHOLE GRAINS VEGETABLES AND LEAN PROTEIN AND HEALTHY FATS, THIS INFORMATION AND THE EXCELLENT SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATIONS REALLY HELPED TO MOTIVATE ME TO GIVE IT A TRY.

What a wealth of information! This is a book you'll read and keep, because you'll want to refer to it again and again. It's worth more than every penny you spend on it!
