Difference From Other Diets

Low carb diets like the Atkins diet are rapidly becoming popular throughout, but Sears claims that they miss the point.

According to him, they ignore the importance of hormonal balance, as well as the influence of dietary balance on digestion and hormone production. Fat consumption is essential for "burning" fat. Monounsaturated fats in a meal contribute to a feeling of fullness and modulate the rate at which carbohydrates are absorbed into the bloodstream. Low-fat diets actually stimulate fat storage, according to Sears, by creating high levels of insulin in the blood.
