Brilliantly researched and based on solid scientific trials and illuminating case histories, Food is Better Medicine than Drugs will revolutionise the way you think about your health and put you back in charge. The authors reveal how modern medicine has become distorted and is now, for reasons largely to do with profit and power, heavily dependent on prescription drugs.

First published in 2005 in B format as The Holford Low-GL Diet, this book quickly established itself as one of Patrick Holford's core nutrition titles.

By eating foods with a low glycemic load (GL), you can balance your blood sugar and not only lose weight quickly but keep it off, feel full of energy and enjoy greatly improved health. In the four years since first publication, thousands of people have followed Patrick's low-GL system with great success, and numerous scientific trials have validated the initial research. As well as encouraging weight loss, it has been proven that a low-GL diet can slow down the ageing process, improve mood and memory, lower cholesterol without drugs, prevent and reverse diabetes and heart disease, and cut cancer risk. This expanded and updated edition - THE LOW-GL DIET BIBLE - is packed with new information on why low GL beats low-fat, low-calorie and high-protein diets every time, and why it is number one for weight loss and good health.

The Hybrid Diet is a radically different, practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and substantially reduce your risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia.
Recent research has shown that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. The drawback is that it is difficult to stick to - because most people love carbs. But, as The Hybrid Diet demonstrates, we don't need to choose. The human body has been designed through millions of years of evolution to burn two different sources of fuel - glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables) and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) - and to switch between them when food is scarce.
The point of The Hybrid Diet is to show you how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious - one that is based on how your body works best.
