Diets based on the glycaemic index are now the most popular in the world, with the number of web searches for 'GI diet' having overtaken 'Atkins' since 2005. Low GI diets are endorsed by many doctors and nutritionists: in September 2007 research showed that having a high GI diet could help to spread potentially fatal liver disease.
It's a fact that eating carbs that score low on the glycaemic index (GI) will make you lose weight and gain energy. This book provides you with all the basic information you need to know about the glycaemic index, as well as an easy-to-follow diet plan, complete with delicious low GI recipes for each day of the week, which will help you stay fit and healthy without having to go hungry. With GI ratings for over 300 everyday foods to maximise your choices, GI Basics is all you need to get you started on a low GI diet.
