Antony Worrall Thompson's GL Diet Made SimpleBook - 2006
The GL Diet follows on the heels of the bestselling GI Diet and is a must for those who have adapted to the sound principles of the GI Index. The GI Index explains how to manage blood sugar levels to promote weight loss and long-term good health, and the GL (glycaemic load) is an exciting extension of these principles, refining the carbs you can eat. Because the GL more accurately measures the carbohydrate load (by portion), many foods that had been considered high on the GI Index can now be introduced. Readers will find that the GL gives them a greater understanding of how to combine foods to bring down the overall GI, thus allowing them even greater choice in their diets.But GL Diet is not just a diet. It is a recipe book (structured around grains, pulses, nuts and seeds, fruit, vegetables, meat and poultry, seafood, eggs and dairy, and even sweet treats) that allows readers to put together a well-balanced healthy diet. And the 100 new recipes are enhanced by superb photography. Whether readers are fans of the GI, looking to expand their recipe collections, or new to the GI/GL, GL Diet will help them eat healthily and lose weight while truly enjoying food.
