The diet uses the Glycemic load index of foods (how fast they are digested) the lower the load the more time it takes to digest; therefore, it keeps you fuller longer & doesn't raise your blood glucose levels as fast as more high glycemic foods. You can purchase books on Amazon.com that breaks the diet down more as well as many websites that help explain it. The only problem I've found is that some sites vary on the foods loads. The best way to look at the diet is like diabetics diets. Refined sugary foods such as sugary cereals, sugary/water filled fruits will raise the blood glucose levels faster because they have been so processed or water soluble that they enter the blood stream faster (easy to digest). Where foods like oatmeal, whole grains, fresh/frozen vegetables and low sugar fruits (berries, apples), digest slower raising the blood glucose levels more steadily & keeps you full longer. Hope this helps you to better understand the diet.

I have limited knowledge of this plan, but I understand that it doesn't actually boost weight loss, but CAN keep you more satisfied (fuller-feeling) while you're losing weight.

Best wishes!
