Patrick Holford, Optimum Living Made Easy, The Low-GL diet bible.
This book claims to be the perfect way to lose weight, gain energy and improve your health. It shows testimonials of people who followed the Holford Low-GL diet and who as a result gained control over blood sugar levels, lowered cholesterol without drugs and reversed diabetes.
The book explains what ‘glycemic index’ GI is and ‘glycemic load’ GL and gives GL counts with the suggested daily diets.
