Best of Eating for Sustained EnergyBeste van eet vir volgehoue energieNew from Human and Rousseau, Best of Eating for Sustained Energy by Gabi Steenkamp and Liesbet Delport (also available in Afrikaans as Beste van Eet vir volgehoue energie):

More and more people are realising the everyday advantages of following a low-GI (Glycaemic Index) diet. Besides resulting in sustained energy levels, improved concentration and increased stamina, low-GI eating holds the following specific health benefits:

  • lowered and stabilised blood glucose levels in diabetics
  • easier permanent weight-loss
  • improved concentration in children with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • improved performance for sportsmen and women
  • reduced cholesterol and blood pressure levels

Gabi and Liesbet have put together the best and popular recipes from the series, which includes 4 titles for everyday use. The family-friendly recipes include low GI versions of popular dishes like scones, creamy spinach soup and desserts – proving that you don’t have to sacrifice taste or indulgence for good health.

The detailed introduction explains exactly how the Glyceamic Index works, and gives practical guidelines on low-GI, low-fat eating for specific conditions. The handy GI food lists will become an indispensable tool in identifying suitable food types and products.
