Is this promise the Holy Grail for dieters? Eat as much as you want and still keep on losing weight? Can you believe it – after all these years of gurus advocating abstinence in some form or another? Here are two secrets I can share with you. First, eat mainly low GI foods (LGI) and second, eat as much of them as you can in preference to high GI (HGI) foods.
