FAT BURNING: THE 2 WEEK TEST

Reboot your metabolism & burn more body fat

The Two Week Test helps you determine whether you are carbohydrate intolerant. Here’s how it works. For two weeks, reduce carbohydrate foods: no sugar, breads, pastas, cereals, starches like corn, grains, potatoes and beans, no milk or yogurt, no fruits, fruit juice, energy bars and other moderate- and high-glycemic foods. Replace these calories with an array of vegetables (except potatoes and corn), whole eggs, nuts and seeds, unprocessed meats and seafood, butter, coconut oil, unprocessed cheese, heavy cream and others as tolerated.

Are you carbohydrate intolerant (insulin resistant)? The more 'yes' answers the more likely:
