2.0 out of 5 stars It's only okay Feb. 13 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wasn't what I expected. I thought the book would be more thorough with a bigger variety of products. The paper it's printed on feels like newspaper, which is okay if it wasn't for the limited variety.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have believed first reviewer Jan. 26 2013
By grammy g - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first review on here about not being able to read the print but thought I would take my chances. Luckily Amazon refunded my credit card. Next time I will pay closer attention. The previous review is correct you can enlarge the print but it is a complete blur. I have ordered the paperback instead

3.0 out of 5 stars You will need a magnifying glass Jan. 11 2013
By George Tsanis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
1200 foods rated, but you will have a hard time reading the graphs and will most likely require a magnifying glass. On a tablet you can forget about making the screen bigger, all that does is blur out the words. Better luck on a bigger PC monitor.
Otherwise the book delivers on its promise :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't List whole, real foods; just "store bought" prepackaged items mostly. March 19 2013
By R. Mauler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
It had a lot of "store bought" brand products listed but missed a LOT of regular, pure, unprocessed foods. I couldn't find the GI listing for a lot of items. Wasn't real happy with this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars GLYCEMIC INDEX USERS WILL LIKE THIS. Aug. 11 2013
By LINDA MAY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
THIS SEEMED VERY ACCURATE & PRETTY THOROUGH. THE MOST INFORMATION SEEMS TO BE ABOUT NUTRISYSTEM, THOUGH. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE, EXCEPT I WASN'T DOING THEM. I THINK, YOU PROBABLY GET THAT INFO FROM THEM WHEN YOU ACTUALLY GET THEIR MEALS. I WAS LOOKING FOR HELP FIXING MY OWN MEALS. I THINK THE LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX MAKES SENSE, BUT IT'S CONFUSING TO PUT TOGETHER ON YOUR OWN.
