Escaping the Holiday Weight Gain Trap With Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract

KEARNY, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2015) - The average American will consume 3.4 pounds of candy during the Halloween holiday. Indeed, this can be a frightening time of year for your waistline, as 75 percent of the average person's weight gain occurs during the holidays (between Thanksgiving and New Year's). What's more horrifying is that additional research shows the extra weight gain (on average, 1.7 pounds) isn't lost during the following year. But according to The Herbal Pharmacist, David Foreman, there are ways to avoid this holiday weight gain trap by using carb-blocking supplements that contain Phase 2 white kidney bean extract.

"As the days get shorter, and the cooler weather rolls in, physical activity tends to slow down and the appetite for comfort foods loaded with carbohydrates, like stuffing, bread, pasta and rice, soars," said Foreman, who started his career as a registered pharmacist and now uses his expertise in physiology, pharmacology and integrative medicine to educate consumers on cutting edge approaches to natural health and healing. "Instead of fighting the urge to splurge, which can be an uphill battle during the holidays, you can actually block some of the unwanted carbs by adding carb-blocking supplements with Phase 2 white kidney bean extract into your daily routine."

Foreman says Phase 2 is backed by numerous clinical studies for efficacy. Studies show that taking one or two capsules before a meal can block up to 65 percent of unwanted carbohydrates (without gastric distress) and when used as part of a calorie deficit diet, it gave better results for weight loss than dieting alone.

The latest study published on Phase 2 in Obesity, the official peer-reviewed research journal of The Obesity Society, showed participants had an average weight loss of 7 pounds in 12 weeks, and 73.5 percent of study subjects maintained their weight loss after 24 weeks in addition to reporting decreased desire for sugary foods. The Obesity study is the longest single clinical study conducted on Phase 2 and the first to show benefits from weight management in addition to weight loss.

Phase 2 white kidney bean extract is an all-natural, non-stimulant proprietary ingredient that can be found in many carbohydrate blocking nutritional supplements such as Natrol's Carb Intercept, Now Foods' Starch Neutralizer, Swanson's Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer, GNC's Total Lean Phase 2 Carb Controller and The Vitamin Shoppe's Phase 2 Carb Controller. For more information about Phase 2 and the science behind the supplement visit:
