    Wow. This is a particular interest of mine since finishing with dieting. I'm fascinated by the whole psychological and physiological aspect of dieting.

    I've just googled and this guy seems very well qualified to speak on the subject.

    Thanks for letting me know about the book. Definitely something for me to get to help satisfy my thirst for knowledge in this area ;)

    LOL. My husband came home tonight and said "you're after a new book aren't you"

    Wondered how on earth he knew:confused: Seems like the author was on the radio today, and knew I'd be after it :D

    Would love to speak to the guy. Want to know why he goes for 8% instead of 10% as most other do. Plus many other things especially about my fav topic, the hormone Leptin :cool:

    Yeah. He picks up things on the radio and reports back :D Unfortunately, since he has no interest in diets/mindset/blah blah, most of the terminology is double dutch to him, so he gets it wrong.

    He's always very excited about telling me though as he knows how interested I am in the topic.

    He told me that the guy was talking about the gilly diet or something. Translated, GI/GL diet :D Bless him. He does try.
