It is a great book. The one I bought was in excellent shape. I have tried quite a few recipes and like them very much. I have used the strategies before and they are useful for losing weight.

Great read - very insightful on how to eat for a healthy life everyday. Gives a lot of insight into why we can gain weight so easily (boxed and heavily prepared foods) and makes healthy eating and decisions easier to make.

Too much maintenance and focus on daily intake of food. Surprised margarine and sweetners are recommended over natural butter and sugar

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!

Gave this a really good go. No change.
Didn't help me and I did not find the recipes 'Delicious'.
I feel like I fell for the latest hype, and wasted my money.
Would not recommend.

Living the G.I. diet is really not a diet, but an awareness for lifestyle changes. The principles are easy to understand and there are great recipes!

I have tried many, many different weight loss programs and have never found anything so effective and easy to maintain as this! Most other programs lack flavor or leave you feeling hungry, but not the G.I. diet. The recipes are delicious and easy to make... I have often made some of these recipes for my guests simply because they are so delicious. Once I started following this diet, the pounds began falling off effortlessly, and I lost my goal of 40 pounds in a 4-5 month period. I have stuck with the G.I. diet and maintained my healthy body weight without ever feeling like I am missing out. I have recommended this to everyone I know who has struggled with their weight at all... I can't say enough about these books!!

I wanted to lose weight so badly that I was prepared to do anything to achieve it, except give up my favourite foods! Then I heard about the GI Diet and ordered the book right away. I found this book very easy to read while being packed with valuable nutritional information. I have never found a healthier more sensible and balanced diet anywhere! This is not just another diet but is really a new way of eating. Most diets fail because you feel deprived or you get tired of weighing or measuring or counting (grams or calories or points...)or you just know they are not healthy. The GI Diet has already made all the calculations for you. All foods are divided into three categories: Red Light, Yellow Light and Green Light (just like the traffic lights). Just eat what is on the Green Light List! (In most cases, as much as you want) The Glycemic Index measures the speed at which you digest food and convert it to glucose. Eating low GI foods causes foods to be digested slowly, leaving you feeling fuller, longer, not causing spikes in your blood sugar levels or causing your pancreas to secrete large amounts of insulin. On this diet, you do best if you eat 3 meals and 3 snacks a day.
All the recipes included in the book, that I have tried, have been excellent! The Baked Chocolate Mousse, the rice pudding, and the granola bars alone, got me through the first few weeks. I especially like this diet because I have lost 50 pounds ( and my husband has lost 57) and because it promotes Good Health, not just weight loss.
I've lost weight on other diets before, but always regained the weight because I never really understood 'Maintenance'. This time I get it!
I finally understand how good food promotes health while preventing disease, while a poor diet, with lots of white flour, white sugar and processed foods, puts your health at risk. The biggest bonus of being on the GI Diet, is that after a few weeks, my cravings stopped! It was like breaking an addiction! (Chocolate was my drug of choice) Now my body only gets the best fuel, and my high blood pressure and cholesterol scores all fell into place!
If you are really ready to lose weight, if you want to get control of your eating habits, this is the best, easiest, healthiest way to do it.
