With over 1 million copies sold of the three previous editions, The Low GI Handbook presents the most comprehensive, up-to-date information about the glycemic index (GI), the universally recognized way to distinguish how different carbohydrates affect your blood glucose levels. Grounded in nearly thirty years of research and written by the world's leading GI authorities. The Low GI Handbook shows how and why eating low-GI foods has major health benefits, both immediate and long-term.

This fourth edition features all the key elements such as: the most recent scientific findings on the benefits of a low-GI lifestyle; an overview of glycemic load and how you can use this companion concept with your low-GI diet; and real-life success stories from people who have improved their health by making the switch to low-GI eating. This edition also includes:

New chapters dedicated to pre-diabetes, pregnancy, and heart health

The GI values for more than 1,300 different foods and prepared meals, including gluten-free options

Easy, delicious recipes and weekly low-GI menu ideas (with vegetarian and gluten-free options)

How to increase protein content and eat more low-GI foods for maximum weight-loss maintenance

If you want to lose weight, sustain your weight loss, manage your diabetes, improve your blood glucose levels, better your cardiovascular health and your sense of well being, this is the book for you.
