*I just lost this entire post and my laptop restarted itself twice. I need a new laptop and some computer skills. Boo.
Okay, where was I?!
Oh, I was on Thursday because all week I’ve thought it’s Thursday. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get it right.
I had to be at work earlier this morning, luckily my schedule only called for 3 miles and strength. I did my 3 and then rushed home for a quick breakfast. I about to make toast when I realized a yogurt bowl would be quicker. It’s been so long since I’ve had one of these babies!
After my client I did my own strength workout – biceps, back and abs. Then, I rushed home hungry and ate a bunch of blueberries while making a protein shake (review and giveaway of this new powder coming soon!).
A few weeks ago I received the Carb Lovers Diet Cookbook courtesy of the publisher. They must have heard I’m “team Carbs” biggest fan!
I never follow a recipe exactly, but I love looking at cookbooks (and blogs) for inspiration and ideas. I love that the book is full of great food photography. Aren’t you more likely to make something if looking at it makes your mouth water?
Here’s what I asked…
Monica: Why do you think the Carb lover’s diet is effective?
Kunes:It’s a “recipe” that really works: A science-based, proven weight loss formula delivered through delicious recipes and an effortless-to-follow plan. The recipes are their own proven formula: Each one has been created to pack the perfect ratio of nutrients that research shows help to melt fat, curb hunger, rev your metabolism, promote good health, and get you a much flatter belly.
Monica: But everyone says protein and fats are what keep you full – what do you think about this?
Kunes: Here’s what I know: Cutting carbs almost never leads to permanent weight loss; most people end up gaining more weight after a low-carb plan than they started at. Scientific research cited in the book supports this. That’s why I wrote The CarbLovers Diet Cookbook. I wanted to share the evidence that a yummy, satisfying, carb-diet rich is the best way to get and stay slim for good.
Monica: What is your favorite recipe from the book?
Kunes: I am partial to all the desserts, especially the Coconut Cake with 7-Minute Frosting on page 244.
