LOW GI GLUTEN-FREE COOKING explains clearly and simply how to combine the ground rules of a gluten-free diet with the lifelong health benefits of low GI eating to enable you to live well and stay healthy. It includes seven simple dietary guidelines for eating gluten-free and low GI; how to find and source gluten-free products; low GI substitutes for common high GI foods; 100 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes with dishes for each meal of the day; GI tables with values for popular gluten-free foods.
Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters
By Courtney E. Martin
Based on extensive research and in-depth interviews with women from various socio-economic backgrounds, Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters lays bare a stark new world culture of eating disorders, food and body issues that affect virtually all of today's women. Though eating disorders first came to be recognised about 25 years ago, Martin's book shows how the issues surrounding body image have only become more complex, more dangerous and more difficult to treat. The current 'epidemic' of obesity is simply the flip side of the same coin. Drawing from interviews with sufferers, psychologists, nutritionists, and other experts, Courtney Martin's book reveals a whole new generation of 'perfect girls' who have been conditioned from a young age to over-achieve, self-sacrifice, and hate their own bodies - this, despite being raised by a generation of mothers well-versed in the lessons of feminism. Filled with vivid and often heartbreaking personal stories, Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters is both a shocking expos and call to arms, offering hope for a new beginning, one young girl at a time.
