The glycemic index helped me permanently lose 6 pounds (see Example 7 of this paper). While preparing her CBC piece about the Shangri-La Diet, Sarah Kapoor interviewed Jenkins. Here is a partial transcript of what he said.

    2 variations on a 1819 (classical Japanese) dietary haiku by haiku maser, Kobayashi Issa, translated by American professor, poet, author David R. Lanoue on his educational website, “Haiku of Kobayashi Issa”:

    fuyugomori aku[mono]-gui ga agari keri

    winter seclusion–
    getting better at eating
    foul food

    fuyugomori aku[mono]-gui ga jyôzu nari

    winter seclusion–
    becoming expert at eating
    foul food
