Americans are gluttons for diet fads. The trouble is, trendy dietsno matter how effective in helping you lose weightusually fail when it comes to keeping the weight off. And most impose so many restrictions that they make eating a grim duty.
The G.I. Diet Cookbook pursues a much more enjoyable strategy. Its 100-plus recipes, created by British food celebrity Antony Worrall Thompson, emphasize satisfaction, not deprivation. The glycemic index focuses on the benefits of low-G.I. foods from every category, including carbohydrates. Because theyre slow to digest, low-G.I. foods make you feel less hungry, allowing you to shed pounds effortlessly. And because the books dishes are so varied and delicious, maintaining weight loss is easier than ever before.
The G.I. diet is rooted in sound nutritional principles that have long been used by diabetics to control their weight and blood sugar. But Thompsons culinary ingenuityand his devotion to preparing food thats as tasty as it is healthyhas transformed this formerly medical diet into one that everyone will find irresistible.
