Wow this was so incredibly helpful! I've been a long time fan of the GI diet (as just a general healthy eating thing and for keeping my blood sugar (nope I don't have anything like diabetes etc either but man do I get insane, erratic and emotional when I'm eating lots of it! The low GI diet was what was recommended me to by my psych even!) in check and regulated but I didn't know much about GL. I'd heard about it but couldn't make heads or tails of it but this really helped explain it for me. Thank you! I also love the concept of magic foods . I love the way you explained this.. you should seriously think of becoming a dietician or a teacher...

I stumbled across this sticky by accident and have shared it with a few others who are now reading the book. I'm so glad it was made into a sticky because if it was just a thread I doubt if I would have found it. The title "Magic Foods" almost kept me from reading, because we all know there is no "Magic", but this is a whole different ballgame.

The sad thing I noticed is that most of the posters in this thread are no longer posing on 3FC. They would make a valuable addition to any discussion.

For anyone who bakes their own bread, I have discovered two tips that make the bread nicer to eat and also improve the GI.

1. Sourdough, as mentioned above. There's a bit of mystique about it, but in reality it's dead easy to make and keep going. I find that sourdough is far more satisfying and keeps me going longer, so I'm happy with just one slice for breakfast.

2. Ever had the problem of making a loaf with wholewheat flour and finding that it keeps coming out dry and craggy? Possible this is more of a problem with bread machines, which is how I bake, but anyway, here's a solution a friend pointed me at. Replace about 10% of the flour with barley flour. It ends up moister, and apparently barley is a seriously good Magic Food.

And yes, you can combine them. I like putting walnuts in my bread, which also scores points, apparently! I'd run out of barley flour and only just got some back in, so I'm looking forward to having that again, and seeing how high a proportion I can manage in the bread while still getting a decent rise. Although it ended up being pearl barley flour, which I suspect is a bit less nutritious.
