Rachel McAdams’ Maple Syrup Diet Sours Health Experts

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Red Eye actress Rachel McAdams is dishing out diet advice that is tough to swallow for one fitness author.

In a recent survey, McAdams revealed she stays slim by drinking maple syrup until she’s so hyper she runs around like crazy to burn off the calories.

That leaves a bad taste in the mouth of Connie Bennett, author of the yet-to-be-published book Sugar Shock! because she says drinking syrup over time will lead to a blood sugar imbalance – and a crash bigger than anything in The Wedding Crashers.

And some of the 250 doctors she interviewed for the book agree, like one M.D. who says “a diet top-heavy in simple carbohydrates can easily can easily lead to pancreatic insufficiency and/or insulin resistance, forerunners of diabetes.”

As Bennett sums it up, “Telling people to drink maple syrup isn’t good diet advice. It’s a recipe for health woes galore.”
