Hi, GI Chow is a resource to inspire and help those looking to lose weight for health or aesthetic reasons. It is based on my own experience of losing over 26kg (4 stone) in 7 months in 2012.

My motivation was to reduce my risk of developing diabetes and to feel physically healthier and more attractive. I wanted to find a reliable, consistent and cheap way to do this without having to endure hunger, take on unsustainable diet or exercise regimes or take unnatural drugs.

Through research and experiment on myself I was amazed to find a very simple and well understood biochemical principle (the insulin response) which when applied to diet (specifically the glycaemic index and glycaemic load of what we eat) has a profound effect on how fat we are and stay. Part of what I found so incredible is that despite the wealth of information in the media and huge array of nominally healthy foods we find in supermarkets this simple piece of information and its overwhelming significance over and above all the other healthy eating messages out there had not gotten through. In fact there are quite contradictory messages and virtually all the convenience food choices (even the ostensibly healthy ones) available to us keep us fat.

To what extent do we trust received wisdom and the truths offered or perhaps even ‘sold’ – literally as well as metaphorically – to us? Just as history is said to be written by the victors, perhaps our perception of the present is equally manipulated by those with their own agendas to push. After all, every piece of information takes time, effort and hence money to be propagated.

Several family members, friends and acquaintances noticed my weight loss and asked how I’d achieved this so I set up this site as
(i) somewhere to refer them to – so they had somewhere to go after they’d forgotten what I told them!
(ii) a record of my findings in the hope that it might benefit the wider community
(iii) an experimental business to educate people on a few basic facts about nutrition and biochemistry whose application to one’s diet alone can have a profound impact on obesity – possibly the most significant epidemic in the ‘developed’ world.
(iv) an investigation into how what we consider to be the ‘truth’ comes to be recognised as such.

I went from over 92.9kg (205 pounds, 34.7% i.e. 32.2kg fat) to under 66.6kg (147 pounds, 18% i.e. 12kg fat) in 7 months i.e. of the 26.3kg I lost most (20kg) of the weight loss was fat. My muscle reduced a little from 30.1% (28kg) to 39.1% (26kg) however that is a healthy level of loss given I no longer have to haul so much superfluous weight around (which was also putting damaging levels of strain on my joints and tendons and causing other health/quality of life problems).

Of course I should probably include the usual disclaimer that I’m not medically qualified or a nutritionist and that you should see your doctor if you have any concerns that you may have a medical condition affecting your weight or diet before starting to lose weight.

The fact is though that you can forget about worrying that you have a fat gene or low metabolism or are too lazy to spend hours each week exercising. Your body’s designed to gain and lose weight easily to deal with periods of excess and paucity in nature’s bounty of available food and, with a little understanding of how your body works, the very same natural drives you instinctively followed to get to your current weight will get you to any weight you choose to be. In fact you’ll lose weight scarily fast and have to consciously decide not to drop below the weight that’s healthy for you.

Good luck – though you really don’t need it if you read and then follow the handful of tips we have. There’s a shedload of stuff on losing weight – on the net, TV, books and magazines – and a host of companies who’ll claim to help you but I’ve tried to distil the information that helped me into a handful of tips you can read in a few minutes so just start in that section!

All the best,

Nik

How many people have spoken to the Queen, Elizabeth II

How many people did the Queen speak to?
How many people did the Queen speak to?

A quarter of a million people, or 0.3% of the population of the UK that is alive today, or one in three hundred people in the UK have actually spoken to the Queen.

That figure assumes she spoke to on average 23 new people at each of the 21,000 engagements she attended during her 70 year reign, an average age of her interlocutor of 35, an average lifespan of interlocutor of 75 years (it is 81 in the UK in 2022) and the vast majority of her interlocutors being UK inhabitants.

If we include the 307,000 people she sent a 100th birthday telegram to and the 927,000 couples she sent a 60th anniversary message to that brings the figure up to 2.6 million people in total (alive or dead) she has directly communicated with, though this is an overestimate since there will be overlap between these these cohorts.

Since the written communications were over a period of 70 years, and assuming an average age of the recipient of the written communications of 80, 200,000 could be assumed to still be living, making for up to half a million people in the UK in total who are alive now (2022) having received direct communication from the Queen.

If you have any other thoughts or figures on these estimates please leave a comment below.

Of course, the Queen’s influence was felt by many more people, including myself. Her devotion to duty with good humour and intelligence is just one of the legacies she will leave us with.

May you ever rest in peace Ma’am.
