Gem GI is a clear introduction to what a GI diet is and how it works. It explains the difference between the glycemic index of a food and its glycemic load. The GI food counter rates hundreds of foods using a simple traffic-light system: red for foods to avoid, amber for foods to eat occasionally and green for foods to focus on.

Contains a clear introduction to GI diets and how they work. Cuts through the jargon associated with technical sounding terms such as glycemic index and loads.

The food rater operates as in the Gem Calorie and Carb counters giving the GI rating as well as calories and carbs for hundreds of different foods.

Provides tips and advice on how to use GI dieting most effectively and helps you maintain a healthy eating regime.

There is also a useful guide to what to choose when eating at your favourite Chinese, Italian, Mexican, etc, restaurants.

This review is for the 2013 edition ( ISBN 978-0-00-721139-5) which is just entitled “Collins gem GI” and has a different cover to that shown in the photo (see the “Look inside” preview to see the cover for this latest edition/printing).

GI and PCOS

After being diagnosed with PCOS, which in turn has caused insulin-resistance (and the associated health issues with that) it was recommended that I try the GI/GL diet to keep my blood sugars levels lower and steadier (and therefore the insulin levels).

A handy and very useful guide to GI.

This is a very handy little pocket-sized book that gives a lot of information. Colour coded along the leading edge of its pages, its introductory chapter is a very good read – an essential read, in fact, before you go on to use the information about the values of foods. I can highly recommend this little GI “bible” to anyone who is wanting to keep an eye on how they are eating.

Its all you need
