Editorial Reviews

Jean Carper
"This is the best diet book-and the only one that offers a lifetime plan for healthy eating. I recommend it above all others."
best-selling author of Miracle Cures and USA Weekend columnist
David S. Ludwig
"Written by leading authorities in nutrition, The Low GI Diet Revolution focuses on both components of successful long-term weight loss: a diet that addresses the biological causes of overeating and an exercise plan to burn off those extra calories. This program is simple, practical, and powerful. I recommend it with enthusiasm."
MD, PhD, Director, Obesity Program & Optimal Weight for Life (OWL) clinic, Children's Hospital Boston
JoAnn E. Manson
"The scientific studies continue to bolster the ground-breaking theories of Brand-Miller and colleagues. The glycemic index and distinctions between types of carbohydrates are key elements of a healthful diet and achieving optimal health. This authoritative but highly readable book explains the science and provides all the tools you need to change your diet and improve your health."
MD, DrPH, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Chief of Division of Preventive Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital

All carbs are not created equal. The bad ones (chips, candy) are the ones with a high glycemic index (GI), that is, they are digested quickly. Good carbs (whole grains, legumes) are digested slowly, meaning that you eat less of them before you feel full. This diet from the best-selling Australian authors of The New Glucose Revolution incorporates good carbs with proper amounts of protein and fats. Their program includes meal plans (with 30 recipes), a sensible exercise regimen, and tips for keeping the weight off. An excellent choice for those who might otherwise abstain totally from carbohydrates. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
