Now in paperback: The New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. The #1 bestseller in Canada. The book chosen by People magazine and "The View" as one of the top diet books of 2005. The book called "The Canadian Miracle Diet" by Woman's World magazine. The book that first popularized the glycemic index, and brought widespread attention to how dieting based on this index is the foundation for losing weight permanently without feeling hungry, counting calories, or jeopardizing your arteries. And the book that made dieting as simple as a traffic light: Green is go, yellow is proceed with caution, and red is stop.

Backed by the science of the glycemic index, The G.I. Diet places every type of food into one of three color-coded categories: Green—make these foods the centerpiece of your diet; Yellow—eat occasionally, after you've achieved your ideal weight; and Red—avoid. For example, quickly digested white bread, including bagels and rolls, causes blood sugar to spike and hunger to return quickly. It's "red." Slowly digested stone-ground whole-wheat bread, which gives a much-longer feeling of satiety, is "green." The diet is a cinch to stick to, truly healthful, and couldn't be easier to follow. Includes recipes, snack ideas, a shopping list, and tips for dining out.

From the Inside Flap:

For years we've been told that a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet is the way to lose weight and stay trim. But anyone who has diligently followed that regimen knows that it doesn't work. Rick Gallop, former president of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, tried it, along with countless other diets, and ended up back where he started: twenty pounds overweight. Frustrated, he set out to find a diet that was healthy and that would actually work. When he came across the Glycemic Index, or G.I., he realized he'd found the magic bullet.
Developed by Dr. David Jenkins, a professor of nutrition at the University of Toronto, the G.I. measures the speed at which your body breaks down food and converts it to glucose, which is used for energy or stored as fat. When losing weight, it is critical to avoid foods that have a high G.I., because they are digested too quickly by your body. With Rick Gallop's "G.I. Diet you won't have to calculate the glycemic ratings and calories because he has done that for you, by listing foods in one of three categories: foods to avoid, foods to eat occasionally, and foods that you can eat as much of as you want.
With recipes, snack ideas, a pull-out shopping list, tips on dining out and strategies for maintaining your new weight, you'll never have to pick up another diet book!
""I can't believe I'm actually losing weight . . . without even trying! I'm not even exercising! I do cheat a bit (I love popcorn). Thank you for your book -- I'm finally getting the help all my doctors couldn't advise!" -- Tracy
""I am thrilled about the 50-pound weight loss (in just less than 4 months) and significant reduction in my blood sugar. Your book has given merenewed hope in getting my weight off, as I have 50 more to go. It is so confidence building to know that it is not my fault for my obesity these past many years, and I only wish I had known this information years ago." -- Irene
""Lost 40+ pounds in a matter of 2+ months (from 210 lbs to 170 lbs). No more headaches!! Blood pressure back down from 180/120 to normal reading. My doctor can't believe the change. Best I've felt in years. Not hungry between meals with your meal plans. Yes, I can indulge once in a while (without putting back any weight)." -- Joe
