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.

Includes recipes, snack ideas, a pull-out shopping list, tips on dining out and strategies for maintaining your new weight. 2005.

On a mission to turn losing weight into a positive experience, Rick Gallop recruited volunteers, introduced them to the basics… of the G.I. Diet, answered their questions, taught them how to shop, cook and eat out, coached them through the hurdles and helped them develop strategies for dealing with cravings and the emotional reasons why we eat. In return, participants shared their stories, their feelings, their stumbling blocks and their triumphs. Over 80 percent of the participants stayed with the program - which is easy to follow and never leaves you hungry - and every single one of them lost significant amounts of weight. 2007.

By Tristram Stuart. 2007
The word "vegetarian" wasn't coined until the 1840s, but the vegetarian impulse has been deeply-seated in Western culture since the… 17th century - Francis Bacon and Thomas Bushell contended that a vegetarian diet provided a key not only to long life but also to spiritual perfection. Stuart follows its development through its Romantic proponents Shelley and Rousseau and on into the 19th century, when doctors proffered scientific evidence that human teeth and intestines were more similar to those of herbivores than of carnivores, to more recent history, which has seen the expansion of a correlative animal-rights movement. 2006.
