Having shared his delicious, slow-carb approach to eating in his previous book, Dr Lindberg makes choosing the right foods easy with this comprehensive guide to the Glycaemic Load (GL) of thousands of foods. The Glycaemic Index (GI) may be all the rage but you also need to know the GL of foods, which provides a more accurate measure of their effect on the body. This book not only provides the GI, and a guide to portion sizes, but also the GL of an exhaustive list of foods. Easy to use and portable, this great little shopping guide makes it easy to choose foods that will help you balance your blood sugar, reverse or prevent obesity, and improve your overall health.
Dr Fedon Alexander Lindberg was born and educated in Greece. A genetic propensity to diabetes led him to become a specialist in internal medicine and endocrine disorders. He now runs a hugely successful clinic in Oslo and is the author of the bestselling book, The Greek Doctor's Diet.
