- Not available
Eating a low GI diet is now hugely popular and a way of life for many people. The GI (glycaemic index) is a measure of how the foods you eat affect blood sugar levels. Put simply, eating certain foods will maintain a constant blood sugar level over a period of time, while others give a short-term lift that will quickly leave you feeling lacklustre and deflated. By eating foods that have a low GI count your body will maintain an equilibrium and you will never feel hungry or low in energy. You will also lose weight over time and feel healthier.
Long-term benefits of the GI diet include a healthier heart, less likelihood of developing diabetes or having a stroke and a stronger immune system. With a clearly-written introduction outlining the reasons for eating a low GI diet, explaining how the glycaemic index works and how to use it to improve you health, general wellbeing and lose weight. Divided into chapters including start the day, quick bites, soups and salads, 30-minute suppers, food for friends and treats - every recipe is healthy and delicious.
This new exciting series of healthy cookery combines stunning photography, nutritious and delicious triple tested recipes guaranteed to work first time, every time. All this, combined with the experience of leading food and health writer, Lynda Brown is an unbeatable combination
