Give Yourself a Boost with Eating for Sustained Energy 4

Eating for Sustained Energy 4Eet vir Volgehou Energie 4Coming this March from Tafelberg

Eating for Sustained Energy 4 was written in response to a genuine need among Gabi and Liesbet’s patients for a practical, easy way to use slow release (low GI) carbohydrates in everyday meals.

The glycemic index (Gl) is a physiological measure of how a carbohydrate food affects blood glucose levels. It is a solid nutritional tool that works best to regulate blood glucose levels, resulting in sustained energy all day long. The more Liesbet and Gabi applied it, the more they realised its beneficial impact on their patients’ lives.

Not only does using the GI markedly improve blood glucose control in those with diabetes, it also curtails hunger in slimmers, combats fatigue, helps children with concentration problems and enhances sports performance while it combats high blood pressure and longstanding excessive weight. In short, everybody should know how to use the GI as a means of attaining optimum health, which can lead to an energetic life.

Also available in Afrikaans as Eet vir Volgehoue Energie 4.
