5 Stars Great Book!
This is a great cookbook. We use it almost daily. The recipes are easy and very good. It’s not like your watching what you eat. Filling, satisfying meals. Love the glycemic breakdowns, calorie, fat, sat. fat. It really helps!!
5 Stars Enjoying a Diet?!
We have tried several recipes out of this book in each section. Every single one has pleased my whole family including my mother-in-law This is one of the best cookbooks I have cooked out of not only because the food tastes fabulous but it is also easy to prepare and serve.
5 Stars Yes you can eat delicious foods, feel satisfied, and lose weight!
After trying just about every diet on the planet, my doctor suggested I try a low GI (Glycemic Index) diet. I was–to say the least–skeptical, and a bit mystified. My doctor didn’t provide me with any kind of guide, except to tell me if it’s white, don’t eat it…really not too helpful. So I did my own research on the internet, and finally decided to try finding a book of some sort to help me begin my low GI quest.
In addition to another book I purchased, this cookbook has become my “go to” guide to low GI eating. It not only gives you the recipes, but also provides helpful information as to why some foods work better than others in lowering the glycemic index, but also provides numbers for glycemic loads, carb’s, fat, etc. for each recipe. I’ve lost 10 lbs since receiving my book (about a month ago), and I’m 58 and postmenopausal! Now, I’m adding exercise to my new lifestyle, and am feeling much better than I have in years. Get this book! You will be amazed.

2 Stars Disappointed
I thought A Complete Idiot’s Guide would contain ordinary kitchen ingredients. Items like xylitol and Hi-Maize Resistant Starch are not in my kitchen, nor are they items I would purchase for a few recipes. Where would I find them in a small town in Canada? I could not find a substitute for the resistant starch on the internet, thought I could substitute Splenda for the sweetener. I bought this cookbook primarily for the dessert recipes for my diabetic husband, but without these two ingredients, it is useless.
