I'm interested in low GI and was curious if her cook books or 12 week program is suitable for a low gi lifestyle? or is it more of a calorie counting approach?

It's very much calorie counting. Basically it's eat 1200 calories per day and burn 500 calories per day. The meal plans help work out what 1200 calories looks like or you can make up your own.
For what's it's worth I wouldn't do it again. The food you can do yourself through Calorie King or the like and now that I know what sort of exercise is recommended I can push myself on my own or with a PT. I don't regret doing it this time but I wouldn't do it again and there are a lot of people who do it round after round.

There are different recipes for different needs. I'm vegetarian and this is the first meal plan that really accommodates me.
She tells you what to eat, when to eat it and how to make it. It's so easy.
You can change the meals to be lower carb etc. check out her Facebook page for more info...
