The glycaemic index (GI) is one of the hottest topics in weight loss today. Like Atkins, it's based on carbohydrates but unlike Atkins it's based on the quality of the carbs and allows much more flexibility for the dieter. This book uses GI in a groundbreaking fashion: simply by adding up the GiP value of each food and keeping to an allocated number of GiPs a day, it's possible to lose weight quickly, effortlessly, enjoyably - and permanently. Unlike other diet books, this is not about avoiding foods - it's about eating what you want within healthy boundaries. Importantly, it's about balancing your meal - by eating certain foods together, you can ensure you get a healthy, delicious and low-GI meal - and lose those kilos.
