1 Steven Rosenblatt, M. D. , Ph. D. and Cameron Stauth The Starch Blocker Diet The Safe, New Way to Eat the Foods You Love and Lose Weight
Harper Collins 2003 0060548231 / 9780060548230 Stated First Edition Hardcover New in New dust jacket; New but with remainder mark and slight shelf wear. 
1.25 x 9.25 x 6.15; 366 pages; The Starch Blocker Diet written by Steven Rosenblatt and Cameron Stauth takes from research on alpha amylase, an enzyme (produced by the pancreas) which breaks down tarches into simple sugars. The book proposes that by taking a starch blocker before a meal, you can actually eat the usual carbohydrates without converting them into sugars and thus, calories. Alpha amylase blocker research began in the 1970's with Howard Hughes' research company. Later, extensive research was done at the Mayo Clinic, not for weight loss but for diabetes management. Various preparations of alpha amylase inhibitors were tried and the more recent ones contain Phaseolamin 2250 taken from small kidney beans. The book will be attractive to dieters who crave carbohydrates as it allows normal or even high carbohydrate intake.
