phase 2 is a safe yet powerful nutritional ingredient, clinically studied to reduce the absorption of starch calories.
phase 2 allows you to enjoy those foods that you love without all the calories.
The first clinically tested nutritional ingredient for non-stimulant carb control
When Should I take phase 2
Recent research has shown the most optimum time to take phase 2 is just before a starch-rich meal along with 8 oz of water. However, the studies also showed that phase 2 could still provide some of its starch "neutralizing" benefits when taken during, or just after, a starch-rich meal. One such study demonstrated that phase 2 could remain effective when a capsule is opened and sprinkled onto food.
During the digestive process, your body converts carbohydrates, found in starchy foods such as potatoes and pasta, into sugar. Your body does this by breaking-down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme that is produced in the pancreas.
These sugar calories are either burned off, through exercise, or stored as fat cells for future use. Unfortunately, inactivity means that these stored fat cells accumulate. The result is weight gain.
phase 2 , an exclusive, all-natural nutritional ingredient extracted from white kidney beans, "neutralizes" the digestive enzyme alpha amylase before it can convert starch into glucose and then fat. It is the first nutritional ingredient that has been clinically & scientifically proven to neutralize starch, found in your favorite foods such as potatoes, breads, pasta. rice, corn and crackers. Essentially, it allows the carbohydrates to pass through the system possibly with less caloric intake.*
This is an easy quiz to flunk. It determines your sensitivity to carbohydrates, and most people are overly sensitive to carbohydrates - especially overweight people.
The good news - The worse you score on this test, the more likely you'll benefit greatly from starch blockers, like phase 2. If you are highly sensitive to carbs, starch blockers are exactly what you need.
Here is the quiz. Be painfully honest in your responses. If you aren't, you won't learn how to help yourself with the starch blocker strategy.
For the following questions, give yourself one (1) point if the following characterizations are sometimes true or if they describe you moderately well; two points (2) if they are often true or describe you quite well; and three (3) points if they're virtually always true and describe you perfectly.
Scoring Your Quiz
|3 - 8||Excellent score. Starch blockers might not help much, because your carb metabolism functions well.|
|9 - 12||You have a few problems with carbs, but are basically in control of them. However, you might benefit from a starch blocker once a day, or every other day, to prevent future problems.|
|13 - 25||possible trouble. You probably need to restrict sweets and neutralize most of the starch you eat in order to have the same metabolic advantages of a person with a healthy carb metabolism.|
|26 - 50||Be wary. Get busy. You have significant dysfunction of carb metabolism and are probably already suffering from hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia. You need to limit sugar intake and take starch blockers to restore healthy carb metabolism.|
|50 or over||You're in trouble, and you should deal with it immediately. You probably already suffer from Syndrome X, or are heading for it. If you don't do something to prevent it, diabetes is a very realistic possibility. Starch blockers will probably improve your quality of life almost immediately.|
Unfortunately, in our current carb-obsessed culture, a score of 25 to 50 is not all that uncommon. It is not cause for alarm. But it is cause for action. We encourage you to make phase 2 a daily part of your dietary strategy. This quiz is part of The Starch Blocker Diet book
