| Oct 1, 2005

“Good Carbs, Bad Carbs” by Johanna Burani, MS, RD, CDE, is a thorough look at nutrition, food and the role of the glycemic index.

Based on cutting-edge research and its practical application in consumer settings, Burani helps the reader cut through the confusion about popular diets and carbohydrates. She explains how to make use of the glycemic index to develop a balanced eating plan for a healthy lifestyle.

In addition to advising the reader on how to eat well for fitness and energy, Burani discusses the role high glycemic eating plays in improving heart disease, diabetes and weight management for adults and children. Real-life case studies demonstrate how Burani’s clients have made the recommended food changes and improved their health. The recipes and food guide make it easy to follow the suggested adjustments.

Making the most of her expertise from 20 years in the field of nutrition combined with her earlier work as a teacher, Burani provides readers with the basics of nutrition and how to apply them in a way that is clear and understandable. The chapters are easy to read and are recapped at their conclusions.

“Good Carbs Bad Carbs” makes readers feel as if they were patients in Burani’s office. What better way to learn about an approach to health and dieting that will change how readers eat and how they feel?
