This stage of the Kick Start Diet involves the re-introduction of ‘normal’ food, but only food that has a low GI (glycemic index) count – a count of 55 or less. Start by preparing some of your usual meals but replace all of the items with ones that have a low GI. Choose from the list below and remember to include plenty of lean protein. You can also continue eating the Kick Start soup as a snack if you wish.

A glycemic index count is measured by the potential of a sugar or carbohydrate to raise blood sugar levels. The higher your blood sugar level is, the more likely your body is going to store fat instead of burning it.
