She has a few books on Amazon as well. I've read the preview of 'Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism' available on Amazon and have ordered the Kindle version of this book. Looks like it will be very interesting reading. If you wanted to order her book in Canada though, the prices are quite a bit higher than in the US. I have a tip to order directly from her though if you are interested, please send me a note and I'll share info.

Looks like a "healthy" sandwich right?

We all know that we need to stay away from sugar, but are you eating "whole grain" bread? Whole wheat bread is high in sugar, higher than some candy bars and sugary sodas, and some scientists have pro
ven that two slices of whole wheat bread will raise your blood sugar levels as high as if you were eating a candy bar.

Why does it take the mainstream media so long after a new study to report health benefits? BECAUSE they would lose all their advertising! I had to sign a waiver when I would be on TV that I won't bash whole grain or cereals...they didn't want to lose their advertisers!

It's truly shocking. According to the Life Extension article, eating two slices of whole wheat bread is worse than drinking a can of Coke or eating a candy bar. The original 1981 study at the University of Toronto found:
Glycemic Index:
White Bread = 69
Whole-grain Bread = 72
Wheat Cereal = 67,
but Table Sugar (sucrose) = 52

That means the Glycemic Index of whole grain bread is higher than that of table sugar, which is also known as sucrose. For those who eat "gluten free" bread, that is listed on the Glycemic Index at 77! This is why when people go "gluten free" and grab a lot of packaged "gluten free" items at the store, they gain weight rather than lose weight.
