Item description for The GI Bikini Diet: 28 Days to a New Body by Charles Clark & Maureen Clark...
In less than a month this simple, realistic weight-loss plan enables women to begin to rediscover their natural bikini figures painlessly, with only minimal restrictions on the appetite. Scaling back mostly on refined carbohydrates-which have a high glycemic index (GI) and thus stimulate fat-building hormones-the GI Bikini Diet aims to switch on fat-burning hormones with low-GI foods like whole grains, green vegetables, eggs, cheese, poultry, meat, and fish (not to mention butter and gin).
Rich in all essential nutrients and based on medically sound principles, the GI Bikini Diet is as healthful as it is tasty and satisfying, and the abundant and delicious low-GI recipes prove it. So there's much to enjoy in this easy, day-by-day diet and exercise plan: good food, good health, the beach.

Reviews - What do customers think about The GI Bikini Diet: 28 Days to a New Body?
Kind of disappointing Jan 5, 2008
I just finished the book, and being an exercise and diet enthusiast, I just did not agree that the title of this book reflects what people will get in 28 days of their "bikini diet". The recipes seem good, but if people want to make a serious change, I do not think that allowing alcohol and doing the exercises they promote will give you a bikini body in 28 days.
I think there are much better diet books out there that give viable information to learn how to cut belly fat and exercise to burn fat. These exercises will not likely raise the heart rate to burn fat, only if you are completely and totally out of shape (never walk, do activities, etc). It seems like it is written for those most inactive people who don't exercise at all. Again, how can a person who has bady eating habits and does not exercise get a 'Bikini Body' in 28 days? Seems like a farce to me.
I do agree that foods that are high in the glycemic index can and do contribute to body fat if you are an inactive person. The writer explains this well as well as the entire insulin resistance issue. However, this seems like the only viable information that I took from this book.
