Nutrition for Life
Catherine Saxelby

Want to know more about our food, food habits and nutrition? Then Nutrition for Life is for you. Catherine Saxelby has that very rare talent of being able to explain complex information in simple, consumer friendly terms. She is one of Australia’s most trusted nutritionists and food commentators who understands the demands of today’s busy world when it comes to food choices, shopping, meal preparation and eating out. First published in 1986, Nutrition for Life was an instant success. Over a quarter of a million copies later, this new edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect current thinking.

I'm looking for a copy of the
"GLYCEMIC INDEX" for information.

I live in South Carolina, United
States of America. I am interested
in obtaining the complete book, or
sections. I have access to Barnes&Noble Booksellers, and maybe others. If the book is available in local universities/colleges, i would be advantaged.

Primarily, at present, I am interested in a listing of cereals,
but my interest probably would include other foods over time.

Note: Presently I do not have
access to e-mail, so I'm required
to ask you to refrain from sending
information by e-mail.

Thank you.

Also, I'm forced to ask you in this manner because the tab for
"GI foods", or an equivalent title,
does not work.

thank you, again

NOte: the tab I was hoping to
activate was

"GI database"

Try your local library. I live in Baltimore and check the book out regularly from the library. You can also get the cookbook from there as well.

The library is a great idea if you occasionally want to check out the International Table of Glycemic Index and Glycmic Load Values in The New Glucose Revolution (Brand-Miller et al). The New Glucose Revolution Shopper's Guide to GI Values 2006 is now available in the US. It's published by Marlowe & Company and has the GI values of around 500 foods. Low GI Eating Made Easy (also published by Marlowe & Company) has a complete section on breads and cereals which may be of use (starting page 146). This has only recently been published (November 2005) so may not be in your local library yet. But it should be in bookstores.
