An essential companion to "The G.I. Diet," this cookbook and strategy guide includes recipes for 135 dishes that are as easy to prepare as they are unrecognizable as diet food.
The easiest diet going is now even easier--and tastier. Off to an explosive start, "The G.I. Diet" quickly landed on "New York Times" and "Wall Street Journal" bestseller lists, and required five quick printings (for a total of 190,000 copies) to keep pace with demand after national publicity discovered the "Canadian miracle diet" ("Woman's World"). Now, continuing to build on the nutritional wisdom of the glycemic index, Rick Gallop follows up with the essential companion--a cookbook and strategy guide for living the G.I. Diet.
Organized around the simple, intuitive principle of green-, yellow-, and red-light foods--if you can follow a traffic light, you can follow this diet--"Living the G.I. Diet" gets right into the kitchen with 135 dishes that are as easy to prepare as they are unrecognizable as diet food. Grilled Pesto Salmon with Asparagus. Beef and Eggplant Chili. Garlic Shrimp Pasta. Thai Chicken Curry. Pork Tenderloin with Grainy Mustard and Chive Crust. Cinnamon French Toast. Florentine Frittata.
