HOW IT WORKS
Cutting down on refined carbs, such as white bread, pasta and rice, reduces the amount of insulin produced by the body, the hormone that causes sugar spikes, resulting in cravings that make you snack. It also triggers the release of the hormone glucagon, which helps speed up the rate at which fat is burned for energy.
Skipping sugar and starches, and eating foods that stimulate the metabolism, such as tuna, nuts and wholegrains, will prevent fat getting stored around your waist. Kickstart your diet with our three-day plan, then mix it up for two weeks and you could lose 71b.
