phase Two

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.

  1. My fat storage is more in my abdomen than my hips or thighs.
  2. Dinner doesn't feel complete without dessert.
  3. Right after I eat sweets or something high in starch, such as a big dinner roll, I feel satisfied and content.
  4. I tend to get hungry an hour or two after meals.
  5. I really enjoy caffeinated drinks, and feel great after a cappuccino or a diet cola.
  6. I love Italian food and Chinese food, probably even more than rich French food, or high-fat American cooking.
  7. It makes me feel good to chew gum, or to have a mint or a piece of hard candy in my mouth.
  8. For snacks, I would usually prefer chips or a bagel over nuts or an apple.
  9. I drink diet soft drinks almost every day to cut back on calories
  10. High-fat, non-sweet foods such as beef or butter are good, but they're not my weakness.
  11. High-fat, sweet foods, such as rich desserts, are extremely tempting to me, even though I know they are too fattening.
  12. Diabetes runs in the family.
  13. When I get hungry before a meal, I'm pretty uncomfortable, and really need to eat.
  14. I have to watch myself, or I'll drink more alcohol than I really should.
  15. I've never stayed at my ideal weight for more than about a year.
  16. I take a serotonin-influencing antidepressant, such as paxil, Zoloft, or prozac.
  17. Hunger definitely affects my mood. When I'm hungry, I get irritable, and sometimes feel spaced-out.
  18. When I start eating ice cream, cookies, or other favorite sweets, it's hard to stop, and I sometimes eat more than I'd planned to.
  19. When I've tried low carb diets, I've felt good, but I really missed my high-carb foods.
  20. I think I gain weight more easily than most people.
  21. It seems to me as if my metabolism has really changed for the worse as I've gotten older. I have to eat less and exercise more just to keep from gaining weight.
  22. I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night feeling hungry.
  23. If I don't get lunch on time, it's very hard to work.
  24. Several times almost everyday, I think about food while I work.
  25. I seem to have less willpower about eating than I do about other aspects of my life.

Scoring Your Quiz

Score
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
