About The Author
Dr Jennie-Brand-Miller is a world authority on the glycaemic index of foods and Professor of Human Nutrition at the University of Sydney. Kaye Foster-Powell is an expert dietician who consults on all aspects of GI. Philippa Sandall has been working in the areas of health and nutrition for over 20 years, and involved with the pioneers of the low GI eating revolution since 1996.
Something is happening in a supermarket near you. Low GI measurements have been standardised and as a consequence, foods with that imprimateur now have the same credibility as those with the heart tick.
Jennie Brand-Miller and her colleagues pioneered the whole low GI movement more than a decade ago and their work has been copied, adapted and mimicked ever since. Meanwhile, the team has synthesised their knowledge and experience and simplified their work into four straight forward books that are completely revised and updated.
Really, to get your body back on track, this is all you need to know.
