which for my purposes renders it useless, so I need to buy another book
on August 9, 2016
There are two major problems with this book, which for my purposes renders it useless, so I need to buy another book. First the organization of the various food and drink items are cumbersome. I guess, after some search and a fair amount of familiarization one could get over that problem, eventually. However the second problem is severe and that you can not get used to. You do not get an actual value for the Glycemic Index, rather the category is shaded in for "Low-GI" "Med-GI" and High-GI". Low is 0 - 55, which is a rather wide range. Add 15 points and now you are in the "High-GI" category. So, the difference between a Low GI and a High GI, could be only 15 points (55 vs. 70) or as much as 99 (1 vs. 100, as in the case of Stevia and Sucrose); I would never know if Dr. Shari Lieberman's book was my source of information.
