Easy to read and digest, pardon the pun. Useful guide to eating the GI way, although I would like more recipes and I don't shop in Tesco so it would be lovely to have a book from sainsbury's.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Family GI Diet by Rick Gallup 29 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is great and really helpful, but a waste of money on Kindle, as the lists (essential) are too tiny to read.

Interesting and good book but I just feel it could be laid out in a better way. However it does work and the principals of the diet make good sense. My daughter and I both lost our half stone quickly and has changed the proportions of what we eat forever.

Easy to understand, simple recipes...most of them taste great. Wife does the cooking, but hasn't complained a bit so that must mean something about the book. Looking to buy more of their books as we speak.
