What is the Glycemic Index?
The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of the carbohydrates in foods on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a low GI produce lower increases in blood sugar and insulin levels and have proven benefits for health.
Why is it better to produce lower levels of insulin?
Insulin promotes the storage of fat, so that when you eat foods with a high GI, you’re making way for rapid weight gain and elevated triglyceride levels, both of which have been linked to cardiovascular disease. Increased insulin levels also depress the immune system. This is not something you want to take place if you want to avoid obesity, heart trouble or disease.
Can choosing low GI foods make you healthier?
Mounting research documented by Prevention Magazine shows that keeping blood sugar from spiking pays off in many ways.Low GI foods:
- stave off heart disease
- prevent or control diabetes
- help you evade serious side effects if you have diabetes
- curb your appetite so you lose weight help you feel more energetic
