Frequently Asked Questions

Does Patrick give nutritional consultation/advice?

Patrick is unable to give personal consultations as he tirelessly spends his time travelling around the world teaching, and writing books. That is how he reaches thousands of people a year. He does have a team of very good nutritional therapists around the UK and abroad.

The best opportunity to spend one-to-one time with him is to attend his Total Health Transformation workshops.

How can I find out more about GL and the GL of foods?

The Low GL Diet Bible has comprehensive list of the GL of foods. The Holford Low GL Diet Cookbook also has good low GL recipes. Zest4Life also run weightloss programmes based the Low-GL diet.

The Glycemic Load is calculated by the known Glycemic Index of a food and multiplying this by the amount of carbohydrate in a serving of that food.

Please note, not all foods have been analysed for their GI score, hence the GL score cannot be calculated. If you know the GI of a food not listed in our GL counter please email us at customerservice@patrickholford.com and we can add it to the counter.
