Boldly flavored, nutritious food at the leading edge of the dietary curve--perfectly timed for what is anticipated to be major interest in high-protein eating for weight loss and health.
Some context: The Diogenes Study, a pan-European program that tackles the growing obesity problem from a dietary perspective, put over 800 overweight and obese participants on one of five diets, and the study’s earliest findings are in: High-protein and low-GI diets were equally effective at preventing weight gain--but the dieters with the best outcome after twelve months were on a combined low-GI and high-protein diet.
Completely independently, inspired by her long-standing interest in highly nutritious, waistline-friendly eating, caterer and cookbook author Fiona Carns developed the high-protein, low-GI eating regimen showcased here. High-quality, high-protein ingredients (including lean meats and fish) fill you up without the fat--while low-GI fruits, vegetables, and grains keep you going without blood glucose spikes.
Here are dozens of one-recipe meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that use minimally processed ingredients (but which are easy enough for everyday cooking)--plus 18 complementary sides and a half-dozen lowfat, low-GI desserts--food that is perfectly suited to our times.
