Many believe that excessive intake of refined carbohydrates (CHO) plays a major role in the development of obesity/overweight, type 2 diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance, a collection of events commonly referred to as “diabesity,” and have sought natural means to overcome these linked perturbations. As a first approach, planned diets with low portions of refined CHO have become popular. However, these diets do not satisfy everyone; and many are concerned over replacing CHO with more fats… 
Erratum to: A review of α-amylase inhibitors on weight loss and glycemic control in pathological state such as obesity and diabetes
TLDR
The effects of pseudosaccharides, proteinaceous, and polyphenolic inhibitors, particularly human pancreatic α-amylase (HPA) inhibitors, are investigated to investigate their effects on weight loss and control of blood glucose levels in diabetic patients.

TLDR
The effects of pseudosaccharides, proteinaceous, and polyphenolic inhibitors, particularly human pancreatic α-amylase (HPA) inhibitors, are investigated to investigate their effects on weight loss and control of blood glucose levels in diabetic patients.
Pulse consumption, satiety, and weight management.
TLDR
Overall, there is some indication of a beneficial effect of pulses on short-term satiety and weight loss during intentional energy restriction, but more studies are needed in this area, particularly those that are longer term, investigate the optimal amount of pulses to consume for weight control, and include behavioral elements to help overcome barriers to pulse consumption.
A proprietary alpha-amylase inhibitor from white bean (Phaseolus vulgaris): A review of clinical studies on weight loss and glycemic control
TLDR
Clinical studies show that Phase 2 has the potential to induce weight loss and reduce spikes in blood sugar caused by carbohydrates through its alpha-amylase inhibiting activity.
Comparing Effects of Carbohydrate (CHO) Blockers and Trivalent Chromium on CHO-Induced Insulin Resistance and Elevated Blood Pressure in Rats
TLDR
The data indicate that high doses of CB and CR, despite their different mechanisms of action, can completely overcome CHO-induced IR and BP elevations, and suggest that earlier use ofCB and CR in the life cycle appears more effective in overcoming CHO- induced perturbations than later use.
Functional foods-based diet as a novel dietary approach for management of type 2 diabetes and its complications: A review.
Type 2 diabetes is a complicated metabolic disorder with both short- and long-term undesirable complications. In recent years, there has been growing evidence that functional foods and their
Acarbose, lente carbohydrate, and prebiotics promote metabolic health and longevity by stimulating intestinal production of GLP-1
TLDR
There is growing reason to suspect that an upregulation of fasting and postprandial production of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1)—stemming from increased delivery of carbohydrate to L cells in the distal intestinal tract—is largely responsible for the versatile health protection conferred by acarbose.
REVIEW ON NUTRITIONAL AND HEALTH PERSPECTIVES OF DRY BEANS: A LEADING NUTRACEUTICAL SOURCE
TLDR
Inclusion of dry beans in health promoting diet is important particularly to meet the major dietary recommendations to decrease the risk for chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.

Enhanced Weight Loss From a Dietary Supplement Containing Standardized Phaseolus vulgaris Extract in Overweight Men and Women
TLDR
A dietary supplement given three times per day containing 1,000 mg of Phaseolus vulgaris extract derived from the white kidney bean is examined, shown to inhibit the activity of the digestive enzyme alpha amylase and inhibit starch reabsorption so as to be associated with weight loss.
A Dietary Supplement Containing Standardized Phaseolus vulgaris Extract Influences Body Composition of Overweight Men and Women
TLDR
Results indicate that Phaseolus vulgaris extract produces significant decrement in body weight and suggest decrements in fat mass in the face of maintained lean body mass and indicate the use of natural weight loss supplements could aid in the struggle against obesity.
Weight-loss drugs and supplements: are there safer alternatives?
TLDR
These all-natural products are presented as some possible alternatives to those that could be potentially lethal and are not meant as the only options.
Acute Postprandial Gastrointestinal and Metabolic Effects of Wheat Amylase Inhibitor (WAI) in Normal, Obese, and Diabetic Humans
TLDR
Although WAI delays CHO absorption and reduces peak postprandial plasma glucose concentrations, overall CHO malabsorption is minimal (as reflected by breath hydrogen and hormones) and without symptoms, it, therefore, may be useful in treating type II diabetes mellitus.
Type 2 diabetes and the vegetarian diet.
TLDR
The vegetarian diet contains a portfolio of natural products and food forms of benefit for both the carbohydrate and lipid abnormalities in diabetes and it is anticipated that their combined use in vegetarian diets will produce very significant metabolic advantages for the prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications.
Investigation of an Amylase Inhibitor on Human Glucose Absorption after Starch Consumption
TLDR
The bean extract has in vivo efficacy for inhibition of starch absorption and may prove beneficial in weight reduction in individuals consuming large amounts of starch.

TLDR
An overview of short- and long-term changes that occur from eating diets of different glycemic indexes and glycemic loads are provided, coupled with practical strategies for how to design low-glycemic-load diets consisting primarily of low- glycemic carbohydrates.
Starch blockers--their effect on calorie absorption from a high-starch meal.
TLDR
It is concluded that starch-blocker tablets do not inhibit the digestion and absorption of starch calories in human beings.

TLDR
The hypothesis that the enzyme inhibitors examined here at reasonable doses can safely lower the glycemic loads starch and sucrose can be supported.
