The book is very small and doesn't have a lot of the food that I eat so it was not very helpful for me. I could not tell anyone to buy this book unless they are into a lot of processed food and restaurant eating. If that is you, you might like this book!

I have just started a low glycemic index diet, and needed a guide to go by on ratings for gly. index of food. I really looked forward to getting this book. I was somewhat dissapointed when I couldn't find certain foods in the guide. I also have not heard of "President's Choice, Blue Moon" products. Is there a reason that it has to be stated on every product they sell? I realize that this product is probably popular in what ever country that this book is written in, Australia, or maybe Canada. Otherwise, I do use this book on a daily basis to look up the gly. index number for the foods on my diet...or if they aren't on my diet.
Thank you. [...]

This is a great book, but it's WORTHLESS ON A KINDLE. The heart of this book is a large set of tables that show you the GI and GL of various foods. These tables all span two pages, with the food name on the left page, and the important values on the facing page. On the Kindle, itself, you can't see both pages at once, so there's no way to match up the values with the food name short of manually counting the number of lines from the top of the page. Even on the various kindle readers that do let you see two pages at a time, the pages are formatted in such a way that the lines *still* don't line up properly. Go with paper.

The New Glucose Revolution Shoppers Guide to GI Values 2010 is a unique tool for diabetics and those interested in following a low-GI diet. The book begins with an easy to follow introduction to the low-GI lifestyle. It discusses shopping, eating out, gluten-free, and sugars/sweeteners. This first portion of the book is very convenient, because it helps the new practitioner understand terminology used, and the benefits of the lifestyle. I say lifestyle, because it's very clear that this is not a 'diet' intended for weight loss, but for all-around health.

Approximately 2/3s of the book is dedicated to a list of food stuffs and their nutritional facts. This is a long list, comprised of 'more than' 1300 items. While the list contains a number of important foods, it is far from comprehensive, and unfortunately includes a large amount of a single brand called 'Presidents Choice.' I'm not sure where to buy this brand, locally, and have actually never even heard of it. It also does not include many sources for 'eating out.'

While this book is a good idea, I find it lacking in usefulness. A better choice would be a regular 'low carb' volume, of which there are several.

I was very disappointed in this book because it was too "brand" specific. Unfortunately, almost all the brand names shown only seem to be available in the USA. I live in Canada. It will help with basic specific foods but too much emphasis was placed on eating out and, as I said, specific brand name goods.

While not as comprehensive as some of the other books in the series, it gives a good, basic explaination of what the GI is about. It's small enough to toss into my handbag on grocery day and for the price I thought it was a good value.

this booklet contains an extensive listing of foods by categories and brand-names, with a listing of their caloric, fat, carbohydrate, and sodium content, plus their glycemic index. it would be useful for those who have decided to work on their diabetes by controlling the glycemic load of foods.

as i no longer live in the US, the lists, mostly by brand names, are of little use to me since most are not available here. this book is probably useful in the US only.

i would have liked to be able to use the information; it sounds like a manageable way of adapting to an improved way of eating.

With the split charts this kindle book is worthless. You have to jump between pages to see what the values of different foods are.
