The Family GI Diet has been written in response to the thousands of readers who have emailed us about family issues and the role of The G.I. Diet. It is written mainly through women's eyes in terms of their own health and hormonal issues including pregnancy, nursing and menopause. It also deals from a women's perspective with their traditional role, rightly or wrongly, as gatekeepers for health and nutrition for the family.

I have co-authored the book with my wife, Dr Ruth Gallop. Ruth is Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto with a particular interest in women's emotional health and well-being. For many women a sense of well-being is closely linked to weight and self image.

The G.I. Diet is an ideal way for the whole family to eat. In the book we cover finicky tots, junk food obsessed teens, reluctant spouses/partners and ageing parents. So if you're tired of being a short-order cook accommodating everyone's different needs and would like a female perspective, then this is the book for you.

Menopause Clinic

The second book in the highly successful G.I. Diet Clinic series addresses one of the most stressful times in a woman's life, Menopause.

Menopause and post- menopause can be a challenging time of life for women. It is a time of not only physical change, but also empty nests and aging parents. Metabolism slows and hormonal storms play havoc with daily lives. Many are at the peak of demanding careers, which only adds to the stress. It's also the time of life when women begin to develop the dreaded middle-aged spread. In fact menopause is THE major hormonal trigger for women gaining weight.

But there is a way to take control, a way to increase energy, reduce hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms and get rid of those hard-to-lose pounds. In The G.I. Diet Menopause Clinic Rick Gallop has adapted his hugely popular G.I. Diet specifically for the special needs of menopausal women.

Rick addresses concerns such as middle age spread and the changing body shape; weight gain; lack of energy; mood swings; sleeplessness; hot flashes and low self esteem.

The book is based on the experiences of a group of forty menopausal or postmenopausal women who volunteered to participate in a thirteen-week G.I. Diet Menopausal e- clinic.

During these weeks, Rick acted as a personal coach, instructing the participants on the basics of the G.I. Diet, answering questions, providing tips on shopping, cooking, eating out, and dealing with cravings and emotional binge-eating. In turn, they shared their stories with Rick - what was working, what wasn't; their feelings, their highs and lows, stumbling blocks and ultimately their triumphs.

The feedback from these participants was more than positive. They all lost weight and reported a significant decrease in menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, tiredness, mood-swings and binge eating.

The G.I. Diet Menopause Clinic contains all the hallmarks of the G.I. Diet combining -

  • A 13-week guide to permanent weight loss
  • The challenges and experiences of the e-clinic participants
  • Delicious recipes and dozens of weekly meal plans
  • Plenty of helpful, easy tips, hints and motivational techniques to keep you on track
  • Real-life advice, and support and encouragement from the experiences and inspiring stories from the women who walked the walk in the e-clinic.
