Read full description of the books:
The book I read to research this post was The Glucose Revolution which is a very good book which I bought from a local bookstore. This book is about the Glycaemic Index of food and how you can use this information to help you eat a healthy diet. This book contains detailed tables of dietary information for various foods and also has lots of recipes. Even food scientists have difficulty working out the GI of specific foods. You should eat lots of low density foods that fill you up as they provide nutrition, all bran and natural yoghurt are examples. There is no such thing as a bad food and all the less healthy foods can be eaten in moderation. In fact when we think of things like carbohydrates & fats as being harmful we need a certain amount. You want food that will be digested slowly so as to give you energy. It's only in the last 1-200 years that people have had more wealth and food has become more plentiful and people have eaten lots of meat and cereal crops like wheat and rice. This has caused an imbalance to our natural diet and certainly most people should eat more fruit and vegetables. This book is particularly useful if you have a health problem like sugar diabetes but it can be used just as well as a prevention of dietary health problems.

Read information about the authorProfessor Jennie Brand-Miller (aka Janette Cecile Brand) PhD, FAIFST, FNSA (born 1952) holds a Personal Chair in Human Nutrition in the School of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Sydney. She is best known for her research and publications on the glycemic index, and its role in human health. Her research interests focus on all aspects of carbohydrates—diet and diabetes, the glycemic index of foods, insulin resistance, lactose intolerance and oligosaccharides in infant nutrition.
Brand-Miller holds a special interest in evolutionary nutrition and the diet of Australian Aborigines. As a nutrition lecturer in 1981, she was investigating Aboriginal bushfood when she came across the glycemic index, a nutritional concept devised by Dr. David J. Jenkins and colleagues from the University of Toronto. The glycemic index has since changed the way the world thinks about food, nutrition and dieting.
