How to Eat to Lose:
Foods are assigned to "green," "yellow," and "red" groups giving you an eating traffic light.
- You can eat as much of the green foods--such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products--as you like.
- The red group includes high-starch potatoes, breads, and convenience foods like processed cereals, snacks and cookies.
Many recipes designed for diabetics are suitable for people watching their glycemic index.
