    I'm quite dissappointed about this book. A lot of recipe contain

    I'm quite dissappointed about this book. A lot of recipe contains sugar (or honey) and simple white flour. Maybe not too much, but contains. Also there are many recipes with starch (potato, peas) and milk. A person who has problem with insulin or who has diabetes should avoid that kind of ingredients. Maybe I'm too strict, but I don't find this cookbook too healthy.

    It's OK

    I read this book and it does give information about glycemic, but I was hoping for more recipies. If you are new to the glycemic way of eating then this book may be for you. It just was not what I was expecting.

    do not buy!

    There is nothing in this book but blank windows where the recipies should be. All of the pages have nothing but blank windows on them. I wish there was a way to return it. I am seriously having some doubts about this entire ereader idea because there is no recourse when this happens.
