From Professor R. Corder, MRPharmS
The practice guidance on obesity (PJ, 9 April, p435 PDF (80K)) seems alarmingly out of date. There is good evidence that reducing the glycaemic index and glycaemic load of carbohydrate-containing foods is a key strategy for weight reduction. Potatoes and bread should not be recommended.
