    1. Good information – Poor organization While this book did have many more listings than anything else I’ve found, it is very difficult to find what you are looking for. One simple alphabetical listing would have been much more helpful than the catagories and sub-catagories it has. Also note that this is a British publication, so many names are not familiar to Americans (an aubergine is an eggplant; a pulse is a pea, bean or lentil…)

    2. Easiest to use reference This is the easiest to use reference of this kind that I’ve found. It alphabetizes by food as well as by kind of food – i.e. “spaghetti”, or “Italian food”, etc. It also has portion size and Glycemic LOAD – which is more useful than just the Glycemic Index. This is my #1 pick for this kind of information, and the package is also small and affordable.

    3. perfect This is the perfect pocket guide to bring with you when you travel and when you go out to dinner. Dr. Shari Lieberman is a trusted authority in nutrition and she has put the issues that concern most diabetics and people watching their glocouse levels at your fingertips in a very resourceful fashion.
