What the Professionals are Saying about The G.I. Diet

Finally, the glycemic index is being recognized as a key component for permanent weight loss and the treatment of chronic disease. Rick Gallop's book is an excellent introduction to this major area of nutrition.

Dr. Barry Sears

Losing weight is relatively easy with many "fad" diets; maintaining the loss with these diets is difficult and largely impossible to sustain. Rick Gallop has found the key to permanent weight loss

This diet is definitely the one that can help readers not only control weight but also help prevent cancer and heart disease.

For the management of Diabetes, the most effective amongst the current crop of diets is the glycemic index (G.I. ) diet...The G.I. approach postulated by Gallop is particularly good because it's easy to understand and apply to everyday life.

Dr. Medeve in Diabetes Dialogue (Canadian Diabetes Association)

Excellent...This book is timely, of tremendous relevance, easy to read, practical and explodes several myths. Rick has brilliantly set out what needs to be done. Now if we can only motivate people to do it!

Dr. Sudi Devanesen, CM, MD, CCFP, MCISc, FCFPC.

Most diet books are too wordy, their plans too complicated and their quick-fix promises filled with false hope. Rick Gallop's G.I. Diet is based on solid science but is easy to access. If you can understand a stoplight, you can lose weight on this amazing diet--eating your favourite green-light foods all the way.

I'm a binge eater, chocoholic, sit at my desk day and night, can't be bothered to weigh foods or count calories, but help, am I vain! Rick Gallop has been my diet coach for years, and now it's all here in a book that's easy, intelligent and comes with exercises and nifty removable coloured charts showing Evil, OK and Healthy Foods. That chart will be taped to my forearm in restaurants--and on the fridge. This is my diet book forever.
