    :)Hi, I need to lose 2 and a half stone. I'm on my second week of low carbing(more like no carb). Thinking of starting low gi after the two weeks. Is this a good idea and will I still continue to lose weight? xx

    Hi, I think low gi/gl after low carb will be an excellent plan. Low GI/GL is also pretty low on carbs just not as harsh as an atkins style diet. Substitute quinoa,lentils and beans instead of potato/pasta/rice. Use oatcakes instead of crackers and have almost no bread. Keep portion sizes very small. Personally, I weighed food for the first couple of weeks to get an idea of the proper portion sizes.
    I am following patrick Holford's GL diet and also have a Nigel Denby book too. lots of luck with it.

    Willpower, hope you are getting on with your GI/GL regime. Just stick to the "no bread/potato/pasta/rice" rule and you will do well. Watch portion sizes!!! Use a smaller plate!!
