DIET and NUTRITION

The Glycemic Index Diet for Dummies' intention is to make the low-glycemic diet program easy to understand and follow. It dedicates an entire chapter to learning why carbohydrates are needed for your body to function, but also why all carbs are not created equally.

The diet encourages you to add more low-glycemic foods to your diet in order to lose weight, keep blood sugar levels stable and maintain overall health.

Like other low-glycemic diets, eating a diet that is full of fresh and low-starch veggies and fruits as well as lean proteins, low-fat and low-sugar dairy and modest amounts of grains and legumes is encouraged. Foods to be avoided include most processed foods, like those that contain sugar and refined flours.

Dining out guides, ways to boost your metabolism and lists of quick and easy low-glycemic foods are also included. You will also learn about how to cook and prepare low-glycemic meals and dishes that can help to satisfy your carb cravings.

Five different chapters are devoted to cooking tips and recipes for low-glycemic eating.

A sample day on The Glycemic Index Diet for Dummies program might look like this:

  • Breakfast: Basil, Tomato and Goat Cheese Egg Scramble
  • Lunch: Vegetable, Barley and Turkey Soup
  • Dinner: Beef Fajitas
