This review is from: The GL Diet (Paperback)
I hate dieting!!!! and have been on so very many. This book makes it very easy. GI was confusing, Atkins / low carb monotonous, low fat / low calorie was tasteless. Here we have good food, simple recipes, easy guidelines, tips on how to do it in a hurry without having to think to hard. It fits into a very busy life. However one big pleasure is entertaining, cooking for people, long evenings of good food and good wine, and this diet is great for that too! I've done two big catering experiments for friends, one being new year's eve, and not a soul mentioned anything other than how tasty the whole thing was!
Something else that needs a big mention - addressed in this book is the mental approach to dieting. This proved invaluable as I have found it not only easier on the tastebuds, but also easier on the will power, and I find myself thinking about why I want to shed the excess pounds in a very different way than before - it's very positive, inclusive and encouraging.
Thanks so much!!
