The Food Lover's DietBook - 2005
Have you ever wondered why it is that the French have the lowest average body weight per capita in the western world, and yet they eat famously well, enjoying fine wines, cheese, chocolate, and foie gras? It all comes down to a uniquely French way of eating, which chemist Michel Montignac reveals in The Food Doctor's Diet. The key is to eat foods with as low a score as possible on the glycaemic index (GI) which measures how quickly food is converted into sugar and released into the blood stream. Montignac takes this one step further, explaining that it is not simply the GI of a given food that facilitates slimming, but the net GI of combined food as well. Learn the secret to living, eating and looking like the French with this delicious, deprivation-free diet.
