A cardiologist’s revolutionary weight-loss plan that allows dieters to enjoy good carbs while still losing weight
The glycemic index has been the basis of many popular diets. But it doesn’t take into account the serving sizes people actually eat and eliminates too many foods for dieters to stick with it. Now Dr. Robert Thompson’s breakthrough program uses the glycemic load–the glycemic index adjusted for serving size–to take the GI a step forward. The glycemic load is a more accurate and effective tool in controlling weight and insulin resistance, allowing dieters to eat more foods while still burning fat, cutting cravings, and speeding up their metabolism. Safe, simple, and scientifically proven, it’s the smartest weight-loss plan yet.
5 Stars Sure am glad to have discovered this book.
My dermatologist suggested this book with great praise. I purchased the book a week after that visit and discovered a whole new meaning to my true weight gain over the years. From the second week of April till June 15th, I have lost 33 pounds with hardly any effort. I am now eating more healthy than I ever have. I wish I could shake the authors hand.
4 Stars Glycemic Load Diet review
This book is simply written, anyone can understand what is being explained. The plan is simple to do, the recipes are easy enough to follow. You can actually adapt this type of eating to every-day life, not just for the person doing the “diet” but the whole family. I already lost 9 pounds, eat all day and don’t feel hungry-at all! I am going to order the cookbook that goes with this book. In the Glycemic Load Diet Cookbook, Donna has some really good “rice” recipes that I would like to try as well.
2 Stars A very narrow view of the perpetual diet bandwagon
The Glycemic-Load Diet: A powerful new program for losing weight and reversing insulin resistance
This book completely ignores the massive evidence that a plant based diet that restricts animal protein and “junk food” (processed) will prevent not only diabetes (the #7 cause of death) but also Heart disease (#1), cancer (#2) and getting “treated by the American Health Care system” which is the #3 cause of death…(>500,000 deaths/year from adverse prescription drug reactions, doctor/hospital errors and hospital acquired antibiotic resistant infections).
A large number of Medical Doctors and nutritional scientists who have explored the science of nutrition have developed a much stronger set of evidence based dietary recommendations. They include: Caldwell Esselstyn MD, John McDougall MD, John Robbins, Rip Esselstyn, William Harris, M.D., Vesanto Melina, RD, Michael Klaper, M.D.T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Ruth Heidrich, Ph.D, Michael Greger, M.D., Bryanna Clark Grogan, Gail Davis, Rhamy Marie Oser, Rynn Berry, Neal Pinckney PhD, Jeff Novick, RD, Nava Atlas, Julieanna Hever, RD, Brenda Davis R.D., Joel Fuhrman MD,Connie Sanchez,ND
5 Stars A Simple and Effective Program
This is an easy to follow diet plan you can stay on for life–you won’t be hungry and you will lose weight.
3 Stars Glycemic Loads listed in the book are all wrong
I have diabetes and became quite interested in the glycemic load. I have developed a program that calculates the glycemic load from the glycemic index and the amount of carbohydrates in the item. I have a program that I installed on the iPad and have verified EVERY number found using my program. EVERY number for the glycemic load in this book has failed to verify. The information listed in the book appears to be correct, but do not believe any of the glycemic loads listed. I always tell people “Don’t take my word for it, do the calculation yourself.” At first, I thought my program had a problem in it when it kept giving answers WAY lower than those in the book. When I finally checked against other web sites and the data in the database on the iPad, EVERY number from my program was verified indicating ALL the numbers in the book for glycemic load are WRONG.
