A Pocket Guide to Gl and GI Values for Over 800 Foods (Large Print 16pt)
Author: Mabel Blades
YOUR COMPLETE POCKET GUIDE TO GL VALUESBased on the proven science of the Glycemic Index (GI) but easier to use, Glycemic Load (GL) dieting is the easiest, most powerful tool for losing weight, controlling diabetes and following a healthy day-to-day diet. GL values give a more accurate measure of the way different foods affect your body by adjusting the GI score for portion size. For example, an orange is a much healthier snack than a candy bar, but the orange has a higher GI value (42) than the candy bar (41). But when adjusted to the real-world portion, the healthier snack becomes obvious--the orange has a low GL value of 4 compared to the high GL value of 26 for the candy bar! GL, GI Plus calories, carbs and fat for over 800 popular foods. User-friendly Convenient design and straightforward A to Z lists No more math Each food's serving size is already computed into the GL score Glycemic Response Advice on different types of foods and your body's reaction to each one, from meats and vegetables to breads and fruits.

Gem GI is a clear introduction to what a GI diet is and how it works. It explains the difference between the glycemic index of a food and its glycemic load. The GI food counter rates hundreds of foods using a simple traffic-light system: red for foods to avoid, amber for foods to eat occasionally and green for foods to focus on.

Category: Health & Fitness
Burn Fat Fast is quite simply the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight. Alternate-day dieting, which involves taking in a very low amount of calories on alternate days, is all the rage - this diet takes it to a whole new level. In this book Patrick Holford outlines how, by combining elements of alternate-day fasting with a low glycemic-load (GL) diet, you can lose fat fast, without going hungry or compromising your health. For those new to the low-GL diet it is a way to keep you blood sugar even. Why do this? Because if your blood sugar level resembles a rollercoaster ride you'll have a lot of insulin in your system - and insulin is the fat-storing hormone. In Burn Fat Fast you'll find: * Simple, easy-to-follow guidelines on how the diet works * An outline of what to eat and what to avoid on both phases of the diet * Guidance on fitting the diet into your lifestyle * A short, highly effective fat-burning exercise routine developed by former Gladiator and Olympic athlete Kate Staples And if you need any more encouragement, consider this: as well as encouraging the storage of fat, insulin promotes disease and ageing, so by combining a low-GL diet with alternate-day fasting you will not only lose fat fast but also improve your health and longevity.

This book illustrates the role of Mediterranean diet in connection with well-being and particularly its impact on health and elderly care, as well as on the mechanisms of aging. Aging is a natural process of human life. The knowledge that a healthy dietary regimen like the Mediterranean diet can effectively prevent or delay many diseases typically affecting aging people may help to better manage the aging process. From this point of view, knowledge of the numerous benefits of the Mediterranean-style diet may effectively promote better management of the burden of elderly care. As early as the 1950s, Ancel Keys pointed out the effectiveness of the Mediterranean diet in helping to control, and possibly avoid, myocardial infarction and/or cholesterol metabolism. Quite soon after the first studies were published, it became clear that the Mediterranean diet was beneficial not only in connection with cardiovascular disease but also many other diseases, from diabetes to hypertension, from cancer and thrombosis to neurodegenerative diseases, including dementia. Examining those benefits in detail, this book offers a valuable educational tool for young professionals and caregivers, as well as for students and trainees in Geriatrics and Nutrition.

Foods with the least amount of carbohydrate are at the top of the chart. Foods with the greatest amount of carbohydrate are at the end of the chart. The second chart lists foods according to their glycemic index (GI) value. Foods with the lowest glycemic index (GI) are at the top of the chart. Foods with a high glycemic index (GI) are at the end of the chart. The third chart presents foods by the amount of fiber they contain. Foods with the highest fiber content are at the top of the chart. Foods with little or no fiber are at the end of the chart. The fourth chart displays foods according to their glycemic load (GL) score. Foods with the lowest glycemic load (GL) score are at the top of the chart. Foods with the highest glycemic load score (GL) are at the end of the chart. The fifth chart lists foods alphabetically and into basic food groups. In this section it is easy to compare the effect that different preparation methods have on the metabolism of carbohydrates.
