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