The Glucose Revolution - Losing Weight by Kaye Foster-Powell, Stephen Colagiuri, Dr. Jennie, M.D. Brand-Miller

When it comes to what to eat to lose weight, it is not simply a matter of reducing how much you eat. Research has shown that the type of food you give your body determines what fuel it's going to burn and what it's going to store as body fat. It has also revealed that certain foods are much more satisfying than others. This is where the G.I. factor comes to the fore. Low G.I. foods have two very special advantages for people wanting to lose weight:1. They fill you up and keep you satisfied for longer2. They help you burn more of your body fat and less of your body muscle.This essential pocket guide includes a 7-day low G.I. plan for losing weight plus a complete range of low G.I. meal suggestions to help you keep the kilos at bay.
