Adopting a low GL diet is the most satisfying and effective approach to sustained weight loss. Through a low GL diet you are in effect controlling the rate at which carbohydrate is converted to glucose and therefore gets into the blood stream, not only is this the best way to control weight, energy and mood but it has the added advantage of preventing diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, breast, prostrate and colon cancer.

Low GL diets are a more advanced form of low GI diets but the principle behind the two are the same.
