The Protein-Sparing Modified Fast Method

Over 100 Recipes to Accelerate Weight Loss & Improve Healing


A Protein-Sparing Modified Fast (PSMF) is a tool designed to kick-start rapid weight loss by minimizing carbs and fat while supplying the body with adequate protein. This approach mimics the rapid weight loss benefits of fasting while preventing the loss of lean mass. Essentially, you "spare" your body's protein (your muscle) while rapidly losing weight. PSMF leverages the protein-to-energy (P:E) ratio of foods to induce fast fat loss. It’s an extremely effective way to improve insulin sensitivity and break stalls.

In The Protein-Sparing Modified Fast Method, bestselling authors and low-carb advocates Craig and Maria Emmerich give you the science to support this method, along with recipes that are incredibly satiating even though they are very low in energy. You will be amazed at how good they taste, too! The book offers over 100 recipes from comforting breakfast dishes to family dinners to snacks and sweet treats, covering a broad range of global flavors. They are as quick and easy to prepare as they are satisfying.

Sample recipes include:

·      Soufflé Omelet with Ham and Chives

·      French Toast Porridge

·      Steak and Eggs

·      Dutch Baby Apple Pancakes

·      Basil Shrimp Ceviche

·      Grilled Pork Chops with Truffle Mustard

·      Chicken Fingers with Carolina BBQ Sauce
