Book Description

May 10 2011 Low GI Shopper's Guide to GI Values
Alongside growing scientific evidence supporting the remarkable health benefit of a low-GI diet and the forthcoming publication of the revised 'Low GI Handbook' (previously published as 'The New Glucose Revolution', more than 1 million copies sold in all editions), a new audience is poised to discover the 'Shopper's Guide' and its comprehensive lists of GI values—the key to unlocking those benefits. 'Shopper's Guide' is the only annually updated book of GI values, featuring up-to-date comprehensive nutritional data on nearly 1,500 foods, with additional information for those following gluten-free diets, shopping lists, and tips for meal planning and dining out. The convenient at-a-glance tables make this the necessary guide for people following the glycemic index to manage conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or PCOS; to lose weight; or to improve their overall well-being.

All of Jenny Brand-Miller`s books are very worthwhile. They make so much sense towards living a healthy life and preventing disease and the need to take medication.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY May 19 2011
By tony in ca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a lousy job of making an electronic book!

Hundreds of pages of tables, each table split vertically across page boundaries. So we can see fruits and their serving sizes and some other data on one page and the GI and other data on the next. But looking at that second page, how do we know which row is which?

The best I came up with is to count the number of rows from the top of one page ("apples", say) down to the row you're interested in ("blueberries"), then go to the next page (which has the blueberry GI data) and count down again from the top. If you're lucky, you'll arrive at the correct row and learn something about blueberries.

Turning landscape helps a bit, because you can see two page images at once, but the two page images don't line up, so you still have to count.

Unfortunately, only the introductory prose material is included in the free sample, so you don't see the ludicrous formatting of the bulk of the book. A real rip-off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really helpful Nov. 1 2011
By book junkie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The other two reviews are for the KINDLE version- I got the PAPERBACK and its great. I read Wheat Belly and Why We Get Fat and lost 17 pounds in 12 weeks- I plan on eating this way forever but needed some help in figuring out which foods are best and worst. Apples have a lower GI than oranges or bananas. Peaches are lower than grapes, and if you are going to cheat, choose a Snickers bar over a Milky Way or gummy bears or the absolute worst- Skittles. If you are going to eat rice, pick the right kind- it matters! Instant mashed potatoes are the worst kind of potatoes to eat- who knew?

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because some things are terribly unclear. It lists whole wheat sandwich bread- ONE slice- as high (71) but doesn't say which brand they tested. There are only 25 different kinds available in my grocery store- how do I pick or avoid the right one without knowing the brand? Then it lists whole wheat country grain bread- TWO slices- as low (53) but doesn't say who makes that one either. And why in the world would they list the serving size as one slice for one bread and two slices for the other?? There are also pages of President's choice foods which aren't available anywhere near here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better and FREE guide elsewhere! July 17 2011
By H. Reimann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I can understand the problems with Kindle publishing. The technology isn't there yet to make Kindle books visually more like printed books. Another Kindle publisher DietGrail also has a glycemic index guide. Its format is also not perfectly satisfactory but its content is the best there is WRT GI data. It has about 4,000 foods rated with glycemic loads. Best of all, DietGrail has a free online searchable database that is very convenient to use.

I suggest to all Kindle readers to download the free sample to see if the format works for you before buying. Occasionally free is best.

It is a helpful book to use in the store. I would actually like to see more normal foods along with some of the pre-made food items.

I have an older book and found it more useful than the newer one. I use the older one, then look in the newer one.
