GI Diet - anyone follow it?

Hi
for my health problems I want to follow a GI diet, but am so confused about what things constitute a good GI diet. I know that most fruit and veg are good, and nuts and cereals like barley, oats. But what Im not getting is what to eat with meals to make up the carbohydrate part. If potatoes and rice and pasta are out then what can I have? I eat quinoa by the boxload and although I love it I don't want it with every meal I eat!!

Can anyone help?
Cheers
Tesss

Re: GI Diet - anyone follow it?

THe class of carbs that is the lowest by far in the GI index are the legumes: beans, peas and lentils.
Have them once or twice a day!

If you want the lowest, lowest, LOWEST GI carb see if you can find some chana dal (an Indian chickpea.)

Re: GI Diet - anyone follow it?
