, revolutionised the way we think about food via the glycemic index. This pocket guide to your heart shows you how to reduce your risk of heart disease with low fat (low saturated fat), high carbohydrate, high fibre and low GI foods.
The latest medical research clearly confirms that slowly digested low GI foods like pastas, grainy breads, breakfast cereals based on wheat bran and oats, and many popular Mediterranean-style foods play an important part in treating and preventing heart disease. What's more, these foods are also important for blood glucose control and weight loss.
This handy pocket guide shows you how to choose the right amount and the right kind of carbohydrate foods for lifelong health and for reducing the risk of heart attack. It includes:
- a 7-day low fat, low GI meal plan for heart health;
- the low fat, low GI healthy heart pantry checklist;
- GI values, fat and carbohydrate content of more than 400 tested foods.
