  1. This book has forever changed the way I look at food! Wow. What a great read. For some background information, I am a registered dietitian and was taught that for the most part, calories in vs. calories out was the way to lose weight. I had been trying this for many years, and was unsuccessful with weight loss. Last year, I was diagnosed with PCOS, which basically stems from being insulin resistant, making it harder for me to maintain a healthy weight. At the beginning of this year, and subsequently my last year in my 20’s, I knew I needed to make a change in my health to prevent diabetes and other health concerns and this would be the year to do it.I started reading this book and couldn’t put it down. The information is clear and easy to understand, and the book is a fun read with lots of humor. I couldn’t believe how much I didn’t know about the glycemic index/load and how different foods affect blood sugar differently. I had always assumed that as long as I kept my calories under goal, I would maintain my weight. This book taught me that the types of foods really do matter, but also, that nothing is off limits. I changed my thinking and way of eating. Now, I try to indulge in sweets and higher glycemic items as a treat vs. a daily habit.I’ve also experimented with diffferent foods, mainly vegetables and grains that I would have never used. And much to my surprise, I love the taste of bulgur instead of rice, and quinoa as a grain. The recipes in the book are delicious and stuff I would actually make, unlike lots of other nutrition books with not-so-appetizing recipes. And hey, I don’t miss those 25 extra pounds I was carrying around either.Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to feel their best and take charge of their health.

  2. Very informative and easy to read I wanted to learn more about low glycemic plans because I have PCOS. I am very pleased with this purchase. This isn’t a traditional diet at all, but really focuses on lifestyle changes using low glycemic foods. It really helped me to understand what low glycemic is and how to easily incorporate it into my world. I especially appreciated the sections that discussed specific foods such as all rice is not the same, even the differences among white rices–what an eye opener. I also appreciated that it focuses on a moderate approach which works best for me and shows you very simply how to use low glycemic foods in your meal plans.
