GL values give a more accurate measure of the way different foods affect your body by adjusting the GI score for portion size. For example, an orange is a much healthier snack than a candy bar, but the orange has a higher GI value (42) than the candy bar (41). But when adjusted to the real-world portion, the healthier snack becomes obvious—the orange has a low GL value of 4 compared to the high GL value of 26 for the candy bar!•GL, GIPlus calories, carbs and fat for over 800 popular foods.•User-friendlyConvenient design and straightforward A to Z lists•No more mathEach food's serving size is already computed into the GL score•Glycemic ResponseAdvice on different types of foods and your body's reaction to each one, from meats and vegetables to breads and fruits....

    My only gripe is that I wish it was more "up to date" i.e. contained more foods. It's got foods up to year 2007/8. BUT, having said that, if the food you're currently eating isn't "in it", and you know it's "man made" and comes out of a box, you can pretty much assume it's got a high GI :-) - BUT (again!) having a high GI doesn't mean it may have a high GL too. (GI = Glycemic Index; GL = Glycemic Load)If you need to find out a glycemic load of a food, find its GI index (for that serving). Use its GI index number and multiply that by its carb total (for that serving), then divide by 100. 0-10 is low; 11-20 medium; above 20 is high. NOTE: Some counters use the "hundreds" to calculate, others use "tens". Just add or subtract a zero depending on which source you're using. The Glycemic LOAD is more important for blood-sugar spiking than is the foods' Glycemic (overall) Index.Handy Dandy cute-sized reference book - hence the title "pocket guide"!
