I liked this book for many reasons, and one of them is that it provides nutritional info for each recipe -- including, fat, carbs, protein, fiber and sodium! With so many people having other nutritional interests in addition to GI rating, this is a big plus!

It also provides color photos of almost every recipe, which I find very helpful as well. I look forward to the "Forthcoming" titles that are listed inside. If they are anything like this one, I will buy them as well.

I've been following the G.I. Diet for almost a year and, upon the recommendation of my doctor, use Rick Gallop's "The G.I. Diet" which makes it extremely simple to follow the diet. After purchasing 4 G.I. Diet Cookbooks, this book stands out as the best. This is a VERY high quality book in every sense of the word. You won't regret adding this book to your collection.

The recipes in this book look really good. It is a beautiful book. However, too many require unusual spices and ingredients for the ordinary cook. On the other hand, some of the recipes do use everyday ingredients.

Many of the recipes also require the use of a blender or food processor. That involves extra steps and cleanup.

Also, I was under the impression that whole wheat pastas had a lower GI index than regular pastas, and she doesn't use these in her recipes.

What I needed was a low GI cookbook with ordinary ingredients and simple recipes.

I started following the GI Diet (Rick Gallop's book in case there are other versions). I'm not crazy about all of his recipes, so I wanted to get another cookbook that would give me some additional recipes that I could use while on the diet. The cover of "The Low GI Diet Cookbook" even says "The World's Foremost Authorities on the Glycemic Index". Hah! As I flip through the pages, every recipe that calls for a sweetener uses honey, maple syrup, sugar, brown sugar, and even confectioner's sugar! There aren't even any conversion charts on how to substitute with agave nectar, stevia, or xylitol. My biggest gripe is with the sweets, but I'm not thrilled that many other recipes call for non-green-light ingredients.

I was actually looking for a book that would be easy for me to pull groceries out of my fridge or off the pantry shelf to make. This was a little too "gourmet" for my liking. But I will make some of the recipes, there is noway that I would be able to these a couple nights a week.

If you want to eat healthy carbs, consider this book. It teaches you how to incorporate healthy carbs into your lifestyle. The recipes are easy and the ingredients are readily available.

I was lead to this cookbook because of my searches related to PCOS. And, though PCOS patients need to monitor their blood glucose levels, this cookbook called for a lot of ingredients that are not recommended for PCOS patients. This is the ONLY reason I was unhappy with the book. I ended up giving it to my father-in-law who has diabetes as many of the recipes did look appetizing, otherwise, I would have sent it back.

I found the recipes in here VERY manageable and delicious. It has been such an easy transition to this new eating style and these books that were recommended by my Dermatologist have been an excellent source of information and reference. I will definitely purchase the other GI books that relate to my current conditions!

I like the information on GI and that part of the book is really informative and helpful. It's not packed full of recipes I would use. I ordered a second book also part of the GI diet Called The GoodCarb Cookbook by Sandra Woodruff, it's much better. Still good GI info and packed full of recipes that my family will eat and many are easy to prepare. It even has good desserts, so for the best cookbook I recommend the sandra Woodruff book.
