Carbohydrate Addiction:

It’s NOT a matter of will power.

It’s a matter of biology!

Carbohydrate Addict’s

Official Website

We are proud announce that this site has been selected as a recipient of the

Health & Nutrition Academic Excellence Award granted by StudyWeb.com,

one of the internet's premiere sites for education resources for students

and teachers, health care providers, and consumers.

We’re Drs. Richard and Rachael Heller, #1 NY Times bestselling authors of

the Carbohydrate Addict’s Diet, the Carbohydrate Addict’s LifeSpan Program,

and the entire series of Carbohydrate Addict’s books.

More importantly, however, we are lifelong carbohydrate addicts.

For twenty years, we weighed a combined 580 pounds! 

We tried every diet known to mankind (and womankind, too)!

In the end, no matter how hard we tried, any weight we lost would be

gained back...and then some.

Intense, unrelenting cravings for starches, snack foods, junk food, and sweets

ruled our lives.

Our blood sugar, blood fat levels, and blood pressure levels put us at high risk

for a stroke or heart attack.

We blamed ourselves and our lack of will power... and we didn’t see any way out.

Then we discovered the biological imbalance that was causing the

undeniable cravings that had been running and ruining our lives for so long.

We soon discovered that by changing how often we ate carb-rich foods,

we were able to eat the foods we loved everyday while losing weight.

Without having to give up the foods we loved, we lost a combined weight

of nearly 300 pounds!

Now, we have remained slim, trim, and healthy, struggle-free, for more

than 30 years!

Best of all, we’ve helped millions of our fellow carb addicts to do the same.

Carbohydrate Addiction: We know what causes it and we know how to stop it...

for goood!
