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, longer.  

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. 

Bad 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. Duration:  Sounds like you can just continue this
