The G.I. Diet
Author: Rick Gallop
Publisher: Workman Publishing
Now in paperback: The New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. The #1 bestseller in Canada. The book chosen by People magazine and "The View" as one of the top diet books of 2005. The book called "The Canadian Miracle Diet" by Woman's World magazine. The book that first popularized the glycemic index, and brought widespread attention to how dieting based on this index is the foundation for losing weight permanently without feeling hungry, counting calories, or jeopardizing your arteries. And the book that made dieting as simple as a traffic light: Green is go, yellow is proceed with caution, and red is stop. Backed by the science of the glycemic index, The G.I. Diet places every type of food into one of three color-coded categories: Green—make these foods the centerpiece of your diet; Yellow—eat occasionally, after you've achieved your ideal weight; and Red—avoid. For example, quickly digested white bread, including bagels and rolls, causes blood sugar to spike and hunger to return quickly. It's "red." Slowly digested stone-ground whole-wheat bread, which gives a much-longer feeling of satiety, is "green." The diet is a cinch to stick to, truly healthful, and couldn't be easier to follow. Includes recipes, snack ideas, a shopping list, and tips for dining out.

A cardiologist's revolutionary weight-loss plan that allows dieters to enjoy good carbs while still losing weight The glycemic index has been the basis of many popular diets.

Now Dr. Robert Thompson's breakthrough program uses the glycemic load--the glycemic index adjusted for serving size--to take the GI a step forward. The glycemic load is a more accurate and effective tool in controlling weight and insulin resistance, allowing dieters to eat more foods while still burning fat, cutting cravings, and speeding up their metabolism. Safe, simple, and scientifically proven, it's the smartest weight-loss plan yet.
Based on the Glycemic Index, and developed by the author of the "New York Times"-bestselling "G.I. Diet," this 13-week weight-loss plan incorporates recipes, meal plans, motivational techniques and tips, and the inspirational real life stories of dozens of participants.
