Product description

This title includes a cardiologist's revolutionary weight-loss plan that allows dieters to enjoy good carbs while still losing weight. The glycemic index has been the basis of many popular diets. But it doesn't take into account the serving sizes people actually eat and eliminates too many foods for dieters to stick with it. Now Dr. Robert Thompson's breakthrough program uses the glycemic load - the glycemic index adjusted for serving size - to take the GI a step forward. The glycemic load is a more accurate and effective tool in controlling weight and insulin resistance, allowing dieters to eat more foods while still burning fat, cutting cravings, and speeding up their metabolism. Safe, simple, and scientifically proven, it's the smartest weight-loss plan yet.

It's not about willpower--it's about your body chemistry You've tried dieting, and, after some initial success, you always seem to put the weight back on. Stop blaming yourself! The problem isn't with you; it's with the diets themselves. Many are based on the glycemic index, which doesn't make a distinction between good carbohydrates, such as carrots, from bad ones like starches--potatoes, white pasta, sugar, etc. Nor do they take into account real-life serving sizes; the GI numbers are based on lab-controlled portions. The good news is that nutritional scientists have developed the glycemic load, a powerful new tool for controlling weight that's based on what people" actually eat" and allows for more of a variety of foods.
