Using low-glycemic recipes is vitally important to your success. As we find good websites and/or good individual recipes, we will include (when available) portion size, grams of protein, grams of good fat, and glycemic index and load with our recipes.
Caution – Artificial Sweeteners
These recipes are provided for your review and use (and modification, if you would like). We are selecting the websites and recipes we post here. If one slips through that uses artificial sweeteners, please do not use the artificial sweeteners. Eating real sweeteners will help your body know when you have had enough to eat, while artificial sweeteners do not set off such a trigger. About.com has an excellent article comparing sugars and artificial sweeteners. In tests, those who eat artificial sweeteners are not “satisfied” and thus eat more and gain more weight and fat.
These are websites of interest. We have not tried all of the recipes, so please use discretion on which you choose to try. We will mark any website that we have not yet tried.
