“Substantial and consistent scientific evidence of the highest quality shows that a Low GL diet is more effective than conventional low fat or low carb diets, causes more weight loss on the same calories, reduces hunger and sugar cravings, is easy to maintain and good for your health.” Scientific Advisory Board on Weight Management

This review documents the evidence that:

     
  • A Low GL diet is most effective for weight loss - more so than low calorie, low fat diets or high protein, low carb diets
  •  
  • A low GL diet causes more weight loss on the same calories – by positively affecting metabolic rate
  •  
  • A low GL diet is easy to maintain - by reducing hunger and craving for sweet foods
  •  
  • A low GL diet is good for your health - creating rapid improvements in cardiovascular health and blood sugar control, and long-term reduced risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.
