From the Publisher
Welcome to a new way of dieting. The Glycaemic Index diet has long been used by people with diabetes to manage their weight and regulate their blood sugar, and it is now recommended as a safe, healthy and permanent way for anyone including Kylie, Bill and Hilary Clinton, Steve Redgrave and Naomi Campbell to shed pounds. Proven to be far more effective in the long-term than any other diet, the GI Diet does not eliminate any food groups. This means that not only is it a healthy approach to weight-loss, but you are far less likely to fall off the wagon due to food cravings. Antony Worrall Thompsons GI Diet includes a full introduction to the Glycaemic Index and 120 fantastic recipes, with luscious colour photography. This is the diet you have been waiting for! -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Paperback.See all Product Description

Already, using the recipes in this book, my wife and I are shedding pounds, and I feel that combined with the lifestyle changes you need to tailor in to your life, the weight may stay off. Usually, when on a diet, you are faced with really tedious food, however, Worrall Thompson's recipes are completely irresistible; sometimes you find it hard to believe that these recipes are part of a weight-loss diet.
The book is also quite educational. It teaches you all about the glycaemic index, GI (a measure of how fast carbohydrates are metabolised into glucose by the body and hence how fast they raise blood sugar levels), and gives you a valuable insight into which foods have which types of affects upon the GI, for instance, by categorising foods as low, medium and high GI foods, and what each terms means, e.g. low GI foods are slow to digest, and hence make you feel less hungry and help you lose weight.
I have found this book useful as it simply gives you whole ranges of recipe.Read more ›
Low carbohydrate and GI diets emphasise that the major problem is not counting calories but understanding how different foods are broken down and either converted into fuel for your body or stored as fat against leaner times ahead. It's a natural process - the trick is to burn fuel rather than lay down fat. Choosing a low carb diet or watching the GI of the foods you eat is far more effective and certainly far more sustainable than simply counting calories (which usually leaves you feeling hungry ... and then guilty when you succumb to temptation).
The theory, I hasten to add, seems to work: at 6'2", I'm a big, big bloke, but I've never been overly worried about dieting before (not when there's another pint of beer to be drunk), but I've been learning lessons from low carb and GI advocates, and I've lost several excess pounds ... and I feel a lot healthier and more energetic. I'm maybe twenty pounds overweight, and I appreciate that I need to change my lifestyle slightly to ease off that fat. No crash diets, no quick fix, but a sensible, healthy approach to eating.
Low carb and GI approaches emphasise just that. The real objective is to redesign your lifestyle, learn healthy eating habits, and adopt a balanced diet which provides your body with the fuel and nutrition it needs yet does not leave you feeling hungry.Read more ›
I've tried a few diabetic or diabetic friendly diet and/or cookery books before and have always been put off by the use of ingredients like low fat spread, sugar substitute and all sorts of other yucky stuff that is full of additives and other junk.
This book is different and recommends using all sorts of healthy but high quality ingredients such as olive oil, fresh fruit and veggies and decent quality meat and fish, but with the more calorific ingredients in moderation. The book is based around the low GI principles recommended for both diabetics and for healthy eating and weight loss for everybody.
I have already tried one recipe with excellent results and am planning to try some more very soon. A slight word of warning would be that I think that this one might be a bit of a challenge if you have never really cooked before.
A simple explanation of the science of the GI system is given at the beginning of the book. His recipes use lots of fresh herbs and he is not above using the odd tin of beans.
I never feel hungry, I can now do up the waist of my skirts and trousers. It is now the ONLY cook book I use. It works (and I am a difficult customer!)
