We've heard a lot about the glycemic index in recent years, but not many people know exactly what that means and why they should care. The problem with GI is it is an incomplete equation when it comes to figuring out what impact a particular food will have on the body. A better tool is to determine the glycemic load of what you eat and that's something Dr. Rob Thompson has devoted himself to with his diet plan. In this book of recipes that serves as a companion to The Glycemic-Load Diet, Dr. Thompson teams up with world-famous low-carb cookbook author Dana Carpender to whip up some yummy recipes that are designed to control insulin spikes which lead to weight gain, hunger, and disease. One thing you can always count on when Dana Carpender contributes recipes to a cookbook is variety, mouthwatering dishes, and a commitment to keeping them low-carb. You get 150 outstanding recipes to enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and everything in between with this book!

A straight forward and immensely useful review of the Glycemic Load Diet plus lots of really delicious recipes. Dana's work is in my experience always well researched, entertaining, educational and makes for fabulous food that contributes to your health. If you're thinking of returning to health this New Year this should be your first buy and if you have Dana's other cookbooks you won't find this redundant, but fresh and inspiring.

Having read The Glycemic Load Diet, I was interested to get this book and try some new recipes. Every dish I have tried so far has been easy to prepare and quite tasty. Also, this book includes an overview of information from The Glycemic Load Diet, which may be helpful for those who do not own that book.

Pretty easy to follow this diet, especially when it makes you feel better and you can get off medicines. Before I started the diet, I was taking 7 different meds a day for high cholesterol, GERDS, high triglycerides, and rapid pulse, plus I was diabetic. I was also almost 25 pounds over my ideal weight and kept gaining. In only a few months after changing my diet, I dropped over 20 pounds and even after two years am still taking 0 (zero, none, nada, no) meds. All my numbers are fine and I am no longer diabetic. I am the poster child for this diet. It is great!

This is not a diet book. This book explains just exactly which types of foods help you to gain weight and which types help you to lose weight in plain English. A refreshing change from all of the "diet" books out there.

Bought this in conjunction with GL Book, which also does not have GI or GL on any of the recipes.
The recipes look good, but if you are trying to keep track of your GI and GL for the day, you can't do it with the recipes. You will have to find the calculation to figure GI then use that to figure GL.
Extremely disappointed in ability of this to be user friendly.
Would not recommend if you want to track GL, if you want some recipes, they look pretty good.
But worthless for tracking in a diet plan.

I've been doing the GI style of eating for 1.5 years now and have managed to keep the 25 lbs off that I lost. This book has a variety of recipes that are easy and delicious. Even my kids like them.

Dana Carpender has another winner with this book! What I like about her books is that they are what you really want to eat! I love the bran muffins, the curried cashews, and the rice-a-phoney! I'm sure I will enjoy other recipes as I continue to explore the book.
