So here's a quick snapshot of the diet taken from the Telegraph website (I can't post links yet)
What is it?
This is a low glycemic-index (GI) diet for people who love their food, and is the latest offering from Michael Montignac - the founding father of GI dieting.
It is based on two eating plans: one to lose weight, and the other to keep it off.
The menus give two main meal options: either protein and fat, or high-fibre carbohydrate. Lunch should be the main meal of the day.
Breakfast: herbal or fruit tea; oatcakes topped with non-fat cheese; and sliced apples.
Lunch: cherry tomato and basil soup; chef salad of cheese, ham, boiled egg, tomatoes and olive oil; and a few squares of dark chocolate. Optional snack: almonds and hazelnuts.
Dinner: vegetable soup; wild mushroom ramekins with rocket salad; chopped apples with fromage frais.
