I must say this book is great! The only real problem I had with it was the 4 week shipping time. (I bought it used from an independent seller off Amazon.) I have tried a bunch of the recipes from it and have loved every single one of them. This book is making my diet extremely bearable and enjoyable. If you are looking at trying the G.I. diet, I recommend this book as well as another that is straight up all about the diet. The two combined are the best tools ever!
