This latest addition to the bestselling G.I. Diet series offers individualized weight-loss strategies for every member of the family. When Rick Gallop published The G.I. Diet in 2002, its easy, healthy and effective approach ensured its phenomenal success in Canada and around the world. Not surprisingly, Rick has received a flood of emails from people thrilled with their new trim selves. Along with their gratitude and praise have been questions: "How can I avoid cooking two different meals for myself and my family?" "Is it okay for my teen to go on the G.I. Diet?" "Can I follow this plan while breastfeeding?" "My 82-year-old mother needs to lose weight -- does the BMI table apply to her?" Everyone cares about their family's health. But no two people have the same body chemistry, nutritional needs and eating habits. So how do you prepare healthy meals for your family without becoming a short-order cook? How do you get your spouse to follow the G.I. Diet? How do you help your overweight child? What if you're pregnant? For The Family G.I. Diet, Rick has teamed up with his wife, Dr. Ruth Gallop, to address all of these questions and more. Whether your family members have a weight problem or not, this book's sound nutritional advice, practical tips and fifty new green-light recipes will go a long way to improving their health and well-being. Here's what readers had to say about "The G.I. Diet: "I started the G.I. Diet at the beginning of March 2004. . .It is now four months later and I'm 25 pounds lighter. I feel stronger, have more energy and am fitting into clothes that haven't fit in ages!"--Alicia "After many different attempts at losing weight, I've finally foundsuccess with the G.I. Diet!. . .The pounds and inches melt away."--Jan "I started living the G.I. Diet three months ago and have shed 43 pounds and 6 inches off my waistline. . .I've made up my mind to eat like this for the rest of my life."--Ray "My husband is down 40 pounds and I'm down 20 pounds! The G.I. Diet rocks!! We're never hungry, we can't believe the gradual and constant weight loss, and we can't believe that we can eat out, travel, celebrate special events and still, albeit sometimes partially, stick to the regime and keep the weight off."--Joann "As a teenager I know that dieting is a big thing for a lot of us. So many of my friends are always trying different diets and usually end up going hungry. . .Considering [the G.I. Diet] was the first diet I'd really ever done, I'm surprised that it actually worked. . .I've managed to lose 24 pounds in a healthy, natural way -- even my doctor is pleased."--Erika "I lost 85 pounds in 22 weeks. . .There is certainly no more rewarding personal journey than transforming your body into what you always wanted it to be. I can't begin to express how valuable the G.I. Diet has been to making this happen."--Derek "The G.I. Diet is the easiest weight loss program I have ever been on -- and I've been on plenty. I want to eat like this for the rest of my life.--Maryloushow more
