diet review: low GL diet

24 Apr

About

Patrick Holford was the father of this popular diet – according to Holford there are just three simple rules when it comes to weight loss:

  • choose low-glycaemic-load carbohydrates,
  • graze, don’t gorge, and
  • combine carbohydrates with protein.

All you have to do is choose the food you like and be aware of its glycaemic load, or GL (which differs from glycaemic index, or GI). The GL score of a food is the best measure of whether or not a food, a meal or a diet will help regulate blood-sugar levels, and help you lose weight.

And again, there’s a simple rule:

  • Eat no more than 40 GL per day

Verdict

When I first started dieting – a long long time ago – this was the diet that worked best for me.. i managed to lose over 10 kilos and managed to keep it off – it has never ever come back..

This diet allows you to eat – and not starve yourself.. the side effects are better skin and better health..

the reason i haven’t gone back to this one recently is because i’m usually trying the quick fixes – which only help me gain more weight than i lost.. maybe i need to go back to this diet… this diet promises slow and steady weight loss – time to try it?

Has anyone else tried and been happy with the low GL diet?
