The GL Diet Made Simple Summary

The GL Diet Made Simple by Antony Worrall Thompson

This is the follow-up to Antony Worrall Thompson's best-selling "GI Diet" and a must for those, who have adapted their diet to the sound principles of the 'Glycaemic Index'. The "GI Diet" explained how to manage blood sugar levels to help weight loss and long-term good health. The GL (glycaemic load) is a recent development of these principles, and measures more accurately the carbohydrate load of food. This means that foods that had previously been considered high GI, e.g. melon, can now be introduced into your diet, as the amount of carbs you would eat in a portion, rather than the whole melon, is calculated, giving you a greater understanding of combining foods to bring down the overall GL. Antony Worrall Thompson has created 100 delicious recipes based on the GL, to help readers lose weight and eat sensibly, with a much wider selection of foods than ever before. The diet also makes way for a greater range of desserts and treats (as the carb calculation is more precise). Whether you are already a fan of the GI and looking to expand your recipe collection, or if you are new to the GI-GL, this book will help you to eat healthily, lose weight, but still enjoy food.
