Book Review: The GL Diet For Dummies

I often TRY to eat healthier and always reading something that MAY help me lose some weight or at least keep the scaling from moving up. I got a book I've been reading from Wiley that I think will help, if I could only stick to following all the great tips, recipes and suggestions that they give for healthier eating. It is called, The GL Diet For Dummies.” In case you’re unfamiliar with what GL means, it stands for Glycemic Load.

The GL of food is the number that estimates how much the food will raise a person’s glucose level after eating it. Carbohydrates break down into glucose and therefore GL load shows how quickly blood sugars will rise.  Foods with a low Glycemic Load release their glucose more slowly so you maintain stable energy levels for longer.

The book, The GL Diet For Dummies, explains the science behind this diet. This book is very well written and I love the easy to read format. The GL Diet For Dummies, can help you lose weight and stay healthy, without calorie counting. It also comes with 80 recipes to try. I would really recommend this book to anyone, who is looking to change their eating habits. 

April 17th is National Pet Adoption Weekend (Canada)

Help Pet Valu raise $1.5 million for pets in need by spreading the news about National Adoption Weekend - April 17th through 19th.  Pet Valu stores are hoping to find forever homes for 2,000 pets this month.  

Rescue spokes pets who are up for adoption are available for interviews and appearances – and you’re also welcome to visit stores for photos and video. 

 Another way you can help is by RT @PetValu using the #PostaPaw.  Every time you do, Pet Valu will donate 1 cup of food to animal rescue charities.  The chain is hoping to donate 15,000 cups of food this April.
