Has some helpful information but I wonder if the author's not sponsored by the people at Emergen-C because this was practically an infomercial for it in certain parts. I was bothered a little bit by the (inappropriate?) self-helpy advice, e.g. meditation and prayer to relieve stress. Umm, as an atheist, I will pass, thanks.

This book was good in explaining the basic mechanics of and importance of the glycemic index not only in weight loss, but in the management of blood sugar levels. I enjoyed the simple language used.

It is a must before reading anything else on the subject.
