At last, a diet book based on sound scientific research! The Glucose Revolution: The Authoritative Guide to the Glycemic Index–The Groundbreaking Medical Discovery, is written by respected Australian and Canadian nutrition experts, including two MDs and a Ph.D., who’ve spent the past 20 years researching the role of carbohydrates in a healthy diet. According to the authors, watching carbohydrate consumption is the key to a healthy diet. There’s good reason the book has been endorsed by biggies in the medical field like Harvard’s Dr. JoAnn Manson and integrative health guru Dr. Andrew Weil: the authors are acknowledged in the medical community as leading authorities on the topic and have published hundreds of articles in scientific journals before translating their findings here for us regular folks.
