Reading Material, Maintenance

Recently, I've been reading "Fat Destroyer Foods: The Magic Metabolizer Diet" by Sidney Petrie.  (Inexpensive book, by the way.)  Page 48 states some interesting points:
Proteins, and even fats, are fat destroyer foods.  Put them in the company of carbohydrates and they switch roles.  A protein or fat calorie, paired with a carbohydrate calorie, makes two fat producing calories.
One carbohydrate calorie can change the life style of ten and even twenty calories.  In other words, if you are destroying your fat with 2,500 protein calories a day and you let 100 carbo-cals creep in, you will probably gain instead of lose.
You are better off eating 3,000 protein and fat calories.  You will in all likelihood continue to lose.  But let your carbo-cal guard down for just one beer and your fat destroyer foods are now geared to put he poundage on instead of take it off.
That's pretty close in, when you consider how many calories are in a single slice of toast, for instance.  65 calories.  So, if you wanted to have a sandwich (two slices of bread), that would put you over the 100 carbo-calories and you'd be stuck gaining weight that day!

Holy cow!

What do you think?

  1. makes sense to me. this book also goes into the same line of thought about the processed and complex carbs. http://www.amazon.com/Why-We-Get-Fat-ebook/dp/B003WUYOQ6/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&qid=1286334859&sr=1-1 sorry, i don't know much about using html tags :)
