Foods with the highest GI values cause a fast, high-blood-sugar response- foods with the lowest GI values break down slowly, releasing glucose into the bloodstream gradually.

Now the GI concept has spread as a way to evaluate carbohydrates for people who are not diabetic. High-GI carbs (to be avoided) include processed breads, most cold cereals, potatoes, short-grain white rice, and some fruits. Low-GI carbs (fine to eat) include whole grains, brown rice, pastas, legumes, sweet potatoes, oats, and some fruits.

The book also includes discussions of good/bad fats, the Mediterranean diet, and why high-protein diets dont work long-term. The Glucose Revolution Life Plan emphasizes how to eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, fish, and lean meats for a satisfying, low-GI diet.

After you understand the concepts, four different seven-day menus (including one for busybodies) help you get started. Then 50 recipes follow, with dishes as diverse as Pepper, Corn, and Barley Patties- Apricot and Muesli Muffins- Vegetable and Sesame Noodle Stir-Fry- Tuna-Veggie Toss- Thai Chicken Curry- and Summer Pudding. The authors also coauthored The Glucose Revolution: The Authoritative Guide to the Glycemic Index and other books in the Glucose Revolution series. --Joan Price
