The GI is really a common sense approach to eating. It's not so much a diet, but a way of eating - for life - I call it a "live-it". It's really not complicated at all to follow especially if you use Rick Gallop's red light (high glycemic foods - use sparingly or not at all), yellow light (medium GI foods - eat with caution) and green light (low glycemic index - eat often) approach. Key is watching portion sizes and of course getting in regular exercise.
