‘The heart is the body’s engine room, nourishing every organ, muscle, nerve and bone with oxygen and nutrient-rich blood,’ says dietitian Nicole Senior in Eat to Beat Cholesterol. ‘So look after your heart and you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy, be able to participate in life with no restrictions, be around to enjoy your children and grand children, and live to see more great places and people.’ As May is Heart Week in Australia (2–8 May) and National Stroke Awareness Month in the US, we are focusing on diet and cardiovascular disease this issue and look at research that shows why being choosy about your carbs can help prevent heart disease and stroke.

Good eating, good health and good reading.

Finding low GI foods in our supermarkets is very difficul.Bread almost never!

We appreciate it can be difficult, especially in the bread and breakfast cereal aisles. If you check out a copy of Low GI Eating Made Easy you will find that it lists the top 100 naturally low GI foods.

In addition, you may be able to find the GI values of your favourite brands in The Shopper's Guide to GI Values which is updated every year. The GI database at www.glycemicindex.com is another useful place to check out GI values.

Here's a FREE booklet you can download that may help you: http://www.gisymbol.com.au/MakingHealthyChoicesEasier.pdf

Finally, why don't you contact the manufacturer of your favourite breads and ask them if they have been GI tested and what the GI value is. We do know that dense grainy breads and soy and linseed breads usually have a low GI.

Good luck!
