The G.I. Diet: The Easy, Healthy Way to Permanent Weight Loss Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why was this a #1 bestseller in Canada in 2002, currently with 74,000 copies in print? Because it is an easy-to-follow, easy-to-stick-to, truly healthy approach to eating that is based on the Glycemic Index, the original science behind The Zone Diet, but eliminates that diet's complexity and tendency to leave dieters wanting more.

If you can understand a traffic light, you can understand this diet — and lose weight permanently without feeling hungry, counting calories, or jeopardizing your health. If a food is in the green column, eat it. If it's in the red column, avoid it. And if it's in the yellow column, proceed with caution. Take bread, for example. White bread, with its high G.I. number, is "red" — because it's so highly processed the body digests it quickly, resulting in a spike in blood sugar, a release of insulin, potential storage as fat, and a quick return of the hungry feeling. Low-G.I. 100% stone-ground whole-wheat bread is "green" — the body takes a while to digest it, with no spike in blood sugar and a much longer feeling of satiety.

Green, yellow, red: It's all here, with a full explanation of how the diet works, plus ratings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, eating out or eating in. Includes some recipes, snack ideas, a shopping list, and tips on dining out.

Synopsis:

A no-gimmick, easy to follow diet that's based on the same science as The Zone Diet, but eliminates that diet's complexity and its tendency to leave you feeling hungry. The author first introduces the G.I. Diet with a friendly explanation of why it works (briefly: the longer it takes for a food to digest, the longer you will feel full, so the slower to digest foods are the ones to go for). Then he sets up an easy-to-follow guide listing foods that are acceptable and those that aren't. Using the same color-coding as a traffic light, there is such a wide range of "green light (stay full longer)" foods to enjoy that cutting out the "red light" foods doesn't seem so onerous. Follow the diet, and safe, permanent weight loss is a guarantee — without the need for exercise (exercise is encouraged, but for other reasons, not weight loss). Includes some recipes, snack ideas, a pull-out shopping list, and tips on dining out.

Synopsis:

It's the easiest, most satisfying eating plan possible, a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling program that explains how to lose weight permanently without feeling hungry, counting calories, or jeopardizing your health. Based on the Glycemic Index, or G.I., the breakthrough nutritional discovery that measures the speed at which the body digests food and the impact it has on weight and well-being, The G.I. Diet organizes food into color-coded categories according to their G.I. rating.

And that's it. No more guesswork, no more formulas, no more fads. The G.I. Diet guides you to permanent weight loss as well as increased energy and a decreased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This revised and updated edition includes more comprehensive food lists; inspiring success stories; new tips on dining out; motivational help; plus recipes, snack ideas, a shopping list, and more.
