You've done all the right things to lose weight and balance your blood sugar. You've counted calories, exercised, and switched to a low-glycemic diet-all with no long-term success. In Belly Fat Effect, Mike Mutzel provides the missing links that are standing between you and weight control and blood sugar management. New research has proved that the 'calories in-calories out' path to weight loss is obsolete. It just doesn't work for good reason: Eating fewer calories and exercising more doesn't account for the waist-busting influence of inflammatory foods, gut bacteria, and other metabolic influences. Belly Fat Effect translates the new science into useable information that will give you a winning edge over your excess pounds and roller-coaster blood sugar levels. Learn now how to burn fat, not store it.
