YOUR COMPLETE POCKET GUIDE TO GL VALUES Based on the proven science of the Glycemic Index (GI) but easier to use, Glycemic Load (GL) dieting is the easiest, most powerful tool for losing weight, controlling diabetes and following a healthy day-to-day diet. GL values give a more accurate measure of the way different foods affect your body by adjusting the GI score for portion size. For example, an orange is a much healthier snack than a candy bar, but the orange has a higher GI value (42) than the candy bar (41). But when adjusted to the real-world portion, the healthier snack becomes obvious--the orange has a low GL value of 4 compared to the high GL value of 26 for the candy bar! *GL, GI Plus calories, carbs and fat for over 800 popular foods. *User-friendly Convenient design and straightforward A to Z lists *No more math Each food's serving size is already computed into the GL score *Glycemic Response Advice on different types of foods and your body's reaction to each one, from meats and vegetables to breads and fruits.
A revised, updated edition of the best-selling guide to controlling diabetes continues to help sufferers of this disease manage their lives with low glycemic foods. Original.

The 3-Hour Diet (TM)
Author: Jorge Cruise
Publisher: Harper Collins
It's a fact: the low–carb craze is everywhere. Another fact: two–thirds of Americans are still overweight and no one is getting thinner. Although low–carb diets produce short term weight loss, the results are not sustainable in the long term. Dieticians, fitness experts, and medical publications are slowly awakening to the fact that the low–carb diet isn't the answer to weight loss nor a solution to the obesity epidemic. What is the solution? Jorge Cruise's THE 3–HOUR DIET reveals that timing is the revolutionary weight loss element that has been kept secret until now. By eating small, balanced meals every three hours you reset your body's metabolism and achieve amazing results. Eating every three hours turns off your "starvation protection mechanism" ensuring that fat is released and fat–burning muscle preserved. So get ready to lose 2 pounds each week! All with no calorie counting, no starvation, and no deprivation. Bottom line, timing will sculpt your body slim. With his now trademark easy–to–follow instructions, accessibility, and client success stories, Jorge Cruise's THE 3–HOUR DIET is a fluid combination of proven success and categorical innovation.
