Authors of New Book Describe Why Carbohydrates Are Not Created Equal

When it comes to feeding a body well, we’ve all been told we need proteins, fats and carbohydrates. For years, many of those we trust for health information have told us that the foundation of our diet should primarily consist of carbohydrates, namely, grains, breads and pastas.

Online PR News – 17-June-2011 – – New York, NY - June 13, 2011 -- Yet, according to boomer-generation brother and sister authors Dian Griesel, Ph.D. and Tom Griesel, there is plenty of scientific literature that proves there is no actual requirement for carbohydrates. More so, they claim that this flaw in established dietary thinking is the reason that every well-known diet to date continues to contribute to our growing obesity epidemic.

In their new book, TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (BSH, 2011), the Griesel’s point out that our bodies are perfectly capable of manufacturing any glucose we might need from a combination of protein and fat in the diet.

Dian Griesel, who has spent the past 15 years working with dr ug development companies states, "The rise of modern diseases, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, high triglycerides, obesity and hypoglycemia to name a few, are the end result of too many grains and refined carbohydrates in our daily diets."

Elaborating on the issue Tom Griesel says, "The fact that refined carbohydrates are so often a manufactured product made with fats and often trans fats, unnaturally high amounts of dietary omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable and manufactured oils, a cornucopia of artificial chemicals and additives makes these packaged items more detrimental to our health."

It is a well-known fact that packaged carbohydrate food items are the highest profit items in a grocery store, consequently, they are allotted the most space. The result of this according to Tom is "We are bombarded by manufacturers whose interests lie in shelf-life and profits, not our health."

Manufacturers would like us to believe that all carbs are created equal. Unequivocally, say the Griesels, they are not. "The overall carbohydrate message has been a big part of the carbohydrate conundrum," Dian says.

"Lumping these grain based and refined products in the same category as nutrition packed fruits and vegetables, that are loaded with vitamins, minerals and ample water to aid in transportation along with healthy fiber is a crime."

Their conclusion: Refined carbohydrates are creating an ill and obese population. Get your carb cravings fulfilled with plenty of succulent, fresh, raw fruits.

TurboCharged is now available on Amazon:
