The Nordic Way
Professor Arne Astrup, Professor Jennie Brand-Miller, and Danish TV health guru/dietitian Christian Bitz know the Nordic diet is a great diet for getting healthy and staying lean, even into middle age and beyond. As leaders in obesity research, glycemic science, and healthy living, respectively, they’ve learned that eating a specific ratio of proteins, whole grains, and vegetables and incorporating traditional Nordic ingredients such as rye bread, skyr yogurt, and rapeseed (canola) oil into one’s diet are effective paths to overall health and stable weight. The book features peer-reviewed studies that support the diet and more than 60 recipes. In future issues, we’ll share recipes with GI News readers. To find out more about the book, head over to the publisher’s website.
Our Mary (Crown Princess Mary to be precise) is onto something. When she followed her prince to Copenhagen, she lost weight easily, all the while enjoying the traditional diet of the Danes. Move over Mediterranean diets – it’s time to let the Scandinavian diets shine.
