OP here...

About the G.I. Diet....

The G.I. Diet is about eating foods that have a low glycemic index. These foods are good for you because they take longer to be turned into glucose (which our body needs) which result in keeping one full for a longer period of time. For example: a baguette which has a high G.I. of 95 will be turned into glucose at a really quick pace, spiking the blood sugar level, being processed into our body, and we'll be hungry 1 hour later. An apple which has a low G.I. takes longer to be turned into glucose, making our body work harder to turn it into glucose (therefore keeping our metabolism working) and it keeps you full for longer. It also keeps the blood sugar level at a a steady level.

Basically, this asks for you to eat 5 to 6 times a day (like most recommended diets). In the book (The G.I. Diet by Rick Gallop), there is a list of food which is divided into red, yellow, and green. The foods listed in the red list are foods with a high G.I. which should be avoided. The ones listed in the green have a low G.I. which are the ones recommended for consumption. The ones in the yellow can be eaton sometimes, but not excessively.

Very simple to follow. No counting calories or points, and never hungry.

I couldn't do that diet. If I don't count my calories, I'll eat more than I need, and I'll gain weight. If you can lose w/o counting calories, you are lucky. If you can do an "easy" diet and see results, you are lucky.

Good luck!!

I lost 40 lbs in 26 weeks on this diet 2 years ago.

Followed the maintenance tips and what not and was able to keep most of it off.

I now decided it's time to lose some more.

Started it up again and lost 20 lbs in 2 months.

I live by this diet :)
