The Low GI Guide to the Metabolic Syndrome and Your Heart

by KayeFoster-Powell (Author), ProfessorJennieBrandMiller (Author), Dr Anthony Leeds (Author)


Heart disease is the UK's biggest killer. Every three minutes, every day, someone suffers a cardiac event. Now a new 'silent' disease is affecting us: the metabolic syndrome (also called the insulin resistance syndrome or Syndrome X), a collection of abnormalities that increase your risk of heart attack. But the type of carbohydrate you eat can help stop these deadly diseases, and low GI eating is the best way to help control blood glucose, insulin sensitivity and weight, reducing the risk of the metabolic syndrome and heart disease. This indispensible guide includes the latest statistics and studies on heart disease, a 7-day meal plan, clear information on the GI, and practical tips on making low GI eating a part of your diet. With all the information you need about the GI and its benefits for heart health, and easy guidance on following a low GI diet, this is the definitive guide for anyone who wants a healthy heart and a healthy life.
