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.
