“Overall, The Low GI Handbook is one of the few resources that makes decoding the GI scale a lot easier. It takes complex science and communicates it in a manner that is easy to understand by the average consumer. The authors present accurate, empirically sound content with key points repeated throughout each chapter in bold type, reinforcing reader comprehension.”

This book shows how to compute the average glycemic index of a meal, based on tabulated data for individual foods, which are provided. It also distinguishes glycemic impact from glycemic load.
Finally, this work has special sections on such medical conditions as diabetes, and dispels many common myths about foods. For instance, fatty foods are not satiating--in the sense that it is very to overeat on something like potato chips owing to the high caloric density.
