The #1 Health Crisis in the World is Obesity

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) over half of adults worldwide are overweight or obese. With this statistic on the rise, obesity is now killing three time as many people as malnutrition, according to a landmark study published in the British journal, The Lancet.

More than two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. This health condition is a major risk factor associated with leading causes of death including heart disease and stroke, cancer, COPD, diabetes, and osteoarthritis. Annual medical costs for obese individuals is 42% higher than people of normal weight.

Contributing factors of obesity include lifestyle, exercise and diet choices. In fact, the steady increase of overweight and obese Americans coincides with the issuance of low-fat guidelines. Fat in the diet, and prepared foods, was replaced by carbohydrates and sugars. Low-fat diets it seems, ushered in people consuming more sugars… and starchy foods… or carbs. And more specifically, choosing bad carbs over the good carbs. But wait…

Am I Even Eating Carbs?

A study of consumer understanding of starchy foods, conducted by Customer Experience Partners, for Pharmachem Laboratories – the makers of Phase 2 Carb Controller – asked Americans which foods contain the most starch. They were unable to answer correctly about a third of the time. Carb confusion may be key to why they gain weight.

Respondents felt starches comprised less than one-fourth of their daily diet – in fact, a whopping 83% consumed a starchy food within the past 48 hours. The study reveals overweight Americans actually consume nearly 20 servings of starches each week. Two-thirds of them snack on crackers, chips or pretzels.

Carb confusion leads to over consuming carbs. And overweight Americans say they need help.

Phase 2 Carb Controller helps Reduce Carbs

Normally when starch is consumed, the digestive enzyme amylase, breaks down starch into glucose and fructose. It is then readily absorbed and the body uses it, or stores it as fat. Phase 2 Carb Controller however, binds with alpha amylase and reduces the conversion of starch into glucose. Clinical studies have shown it reduces starch absorption by up to two-thirds. Phase 2 is all-natural, easy to use, and FDA GRAS. It is clinically shown to be safe and effective in promoting weight loss.
