Patrick Holford's low-GL diet is a simple and effective way to seriously improve your health. Since the first edition of the diet was published in 2004 numerous people have tried it and can testify to its effectiveness for weight loss - not only that but it improves long-term health and vitality. This book summarises the main principles of the diet and provides everything you need to get started. So what is a low-GL diet? Essentially it is a way of keeping your blood sugar steady so that you avoid the rolleroaster effect caused by a high intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates. Why is this important? Because fluctuating blood sugar causes the body to store excess energy as fat and, as well as piling on the pounds, in the long term leads to a whole host of related problems, from a lack of energy to an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease. Clear and easy to follow, A Quick Guide to the Low-GL Diet is perfect for anyone who wants to transform their weight - and their health - with a diet that's sensible and truly effective. NOTE: the information in this book is taken from The Low-GL Diet Bible, by Patrick Holford.
