After years of being relegated to the dietary sidelines, carbohydrates are making a comeback. Nutrition research shows that carbs have their place in a sensible eating plan - and a certain kind of carb, known as resistant starch, may even enhance the body's natural fat-burning power. Resistant starch delivers fewer calories per gram than regular starches while increasing post-meal satisfaction. It may also improve blood-sugar control, lower cancer risk, and foster healthy digestion. The Skinny Carbs Diet provides tools and tips to make the most of resistant starch, including: the best food sources of resistant starch - potatoes, bananas, breads, and more; complete instructions for cooking with resistant starch (cooling foods before serving is key); and, 150 recipes featuring resistant starch ingredients.
