Love Those Carbs?

Love to eat carbs? Do you want to block calories from being absorbed by those carbs causing you to gain weight? Try this: Studies have shown that a plant compound from white kidney beans, such as Phase 2, can actually block up to 75% of starches passing through the digestive tract without being absorbed by your body. This plant compound binds to alpha-amylase temporarily stopping it from breaking down and absorbing starch.

Could you give me some references for the studies that prove this please Patty? Preferrably unrelated to the people who are trying to sell any Phase 2 products! Also, people need to be aware that, from the calorie point of view, fats have twice as many calories per gram as carbohygrates so continuing to eat a high fat diet will negate any 'carbohydrate blocking' effect in the pursuit of weight loss.

I get my carb blocker from walmart. Make sure the ingredient says white kidney beans extract. (Forgot the name of ours but it has a picture of a guy on it) Hubby and I are both on a low carb lifestyle and these little supplements come in handy on those rare occassions we need to splurge.


It also prevents that overstuffed bloated feeling you get from eating carbs.

Oddly enough, I tried to buy this where I had before which was at Whole Foods Market, a local health food store, but they're all over the US.

They stopped selling it and had to 'pull it from their shelves' something about the FDA. She kind of basically said to me 'yeah, the FDA probably found out that it works'.

So began my search at my local Kroger; no dice.

Long story short, sells it, but here is the info from the bottle:

Health & Nutrition Systems Intl., Inc.
3750 Investment Lane, Suite 5
West Palm Beach, FL 33404
Toll Free: 1-800-859-2272

But I did buy something else called 'Liquid Soft Gel Carb Blocker' for around $6.49 for 30 gel tabs.


They claim that you don't have to take this carb blocker BEFORE you eat - most advice 30 minutes - but can take it WHEN you're actually eating your carb filled meal. I got it at

Details from package:
Applied Nutrition
Box 66457
Los Angeles, CA 90066

It has 1000mg of white kidney bean extract per two caps.

Just FYI,
Bye from metroplex
