Yup hun...i have been looking into this for months after i tried it last time...kinda keeps me going on LT that i can have sooo much good food and still eat well be as fab as Kylie Minogue lol
Nic, just give me a brief outline about it, is it a permanent plan or another diet????


Says it as it is!!!
its a life time plan hun x


Says it as it is!!!
Basically, the idea is you eat the foods low in gi and it stabalises your blood sugar levels. Stay away from refined foods as these make you crave other refined food leading to the hunger spiral.
However, if you have one thing hi or medium gi you can lower the overall GI of the meal by eating the rest of the meal low gi ...for eg white toast (white bread is very refined so hi gi) add peanut butter to it which is low gi and it brings the gi level to a medium.
When you first start you should stick with mainly low gi foods

Separate the egg yokes from the white. Add the sugar to the whites and whisk them until they become firm and form soft peaks as the whisk is removed

Sorry prob a stupid q but do meat, fish and chicken not have a GI rating?


Getting married July 2011
GI is a rating for carbs, and meat doesn't have any carbs. Basically meat has no effect on blood sugar, so it can be considered to have a GI rating of 0.
