The ideal diet is high in fibre and low in saturated fat, refined sugars and refined starches. Carbohydrates with a low Glycaemic Index (GI) are preferred, although the GI should not be used as the sole basis for judging a food. You don't need to have everything bursting with fibre. Nor should you avoid all fat. You just need some balance - choosing the best fats and best carbohydrates where possible. This books shows you how. By eating less fat, more fibre and better quality carbohydrates, you can help normalise blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, reduce excess body fat and also decrease your risk of coronary heart disease, bowel cancer, breast cancer, gall stones, diabetes and high blood pressure.
