Low GI Diet Handbook
Your Definitive Guide to Using the Glycemic Index to Achieve Scientifically Proven Long-term Health Benefits
The Ultimate GI Reference
The most significant dietary finding of the last 25 years, the glycemic index (GI) is an easy-to-understand measure of how food affects blood glucose levels and has revolutionised the way we eat. This fifth edition of Australia's original New York Times bestseller is the one-stop classic resource for anyone who wants to discover the benefits of adopting a healthy low GI lifestyle and will help you:
- Lose weight and keep it off
- Improve diabetes management
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
- Improve blood cholesterol levels
- Manage the symptoms of PCOS
- Boost your fertility
- Reduce hunger and stay full for longer
- Prolong physical endurance
- Prevent obesity
- Increase your body's sensitivity to insulin
Separated into two categories, the glycaemic index rates foods according to how we digest them. High GI – carbohydrates that break down quickly during digestion potentially leading to a spike in blood glucose levels, and low GI – carbohydrates that break down slowly during digestion, leading to a gradual glucose release.
