i have been reading about the Kick start low GI souple diet. is this something endorsed by or associated with your group?

The Kickstart Soup Diet is not associated with the GI Group in any way. It's for people who want instant results. It's a drastic seven-day 'quick start' plan on Australia's Channel Seven television station to get those kilos really moving. After the seven days they suggest people follow a low GI eating plan for long-term sustained weightloss. Here's the link.
