The experts never intended the GI (Glycaemic Index) to be used in isolation and they urge that people do not make the mistake of using the GL (Glycaemic Load) alone. This equates to a diet too low in carbohydrates and too high in fat. GI balanced with GL gives the full picture of how the concept of GI should be used. There is no counting and no calculations in this book. Make SMART food choices and your body will do the counting for you.
