I thought dieting was supposed to be difficult...?!, 20 Feb. 2005
This book is stuffed full of tasty, filling recipes which are generally quick and easy to prepare. Some dishes require a bit of advance preparation if you work full-time like me, but they have all been worth the effort. I have dieted in the past, but this is the first time I have really enjoyed it. The food is so tasty and satisfying there's no need to 'cheat'. The information offered is helpful too - it gives you enough info to be able to adapt some of your old, favourite recipes into Low-GI by selecting the correct food type, quantities, substitutions and cooking method. Nothing is completely banned, it just suggests healthier alternatives or how to lower the GI of a meal if you're including a high-GI food into it. If you're into the GI method, buy this. You won't regret it.
