Glycemic Index Diet
How this diet works:
Author Rick Gallop claims
that the secret to weight loss lies in a diet of low glycemic index foods,
which slow the rise in blood sugar levels and can leave you feeling fuller,
Foods are color-coded into a traffic-light system based on their
glycemic rating. The diet breaks down to 55 percent carbohydrate, 25 percent
protein, and 20 percent fat.
Good Points Exercise isnít
critical in phase one, but 30 minutes of exercise five to seven days a week
is an essential part of phase two. Thereís no G.I. chart to carry
with you, but once youíre familiar with green-light foods, itís fairly
easy to find something to order from a menu when eating out.
Points The plan encourages dieters to set exercise goals and to
gain support of family and friends, but it doesnít teach extensive
behavior skills. Dieters can submit comments or questions online, but
answers may be slow in coming. You can also check the Web siteís
frequently asked questions page.
