Low GI Diet of Low Glycemic Index Foods
A healthy low GI diet of low glycemic foods, combined with moderate exercise, is the healthiest way to lose weight and keep it off.
But that’s not all a low glycemic diet can do for you. A good GI diet of healthy low glycemic index foods can help you to achieve the following:
- Clear up your skin,
- Reduce mood swings,
- Control your blood sugar,
- Decrease insulin resistance,
- Reduce the risk of heart disease,
- Feel less hunger and food cravings,
- Decrease your risk for type two diabetes,
- Lower triglycerides and bad HDL cholesterol,
- And achieve and maintain permanent weight loss.
Low GI Foods vs Bad Carb High Glycemic Foods
Carbohydrates can be a controversial topic. Some say we should eat more, while others say we should eat less. But most studies show both points of view are overly simplified. All carbohydrates are not created equal!
Good low glycemic carbs, such as beans, whole grains and most fresh vegetables and fruit, are slowly absorbed into the bloodstream providing stable blood sugar levels that help keep you healthy and fit.
But bad high glycemic carbs, like refined sugars, most potatoes and processed grains, are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream causing dangerous blood sugar spikes with high and low blood sugar swings.
This can lead to heart disease, diabetes and many other health problems.
When high glycemic foods cause high blood sugar, it sets off an insulin surge leading to low blood sugar. These high low swings cause you to:
- Convert the sugar you eat into stored fat,
- Make you feel ravenously hungry,
- And stops fat burning.
How to Use “Foods to Choose” & “Foods to Refuse”
Our low GI diet helps you get off the endless insulin roller coaster ride!
For great results, just start replacing the high GI “foods to refuse” with the healthy low GI “foods to choose” from our glycemic index food list:
- You’ll look better,
- You’ll burn more calories,
- You’ll lose weight much easier,
- You’ll keep the weight off permanently,
- And you’ll feel less hungry and more satisfied.
The “foods to refuse” consist of foods too high in unhealthy fat calories and the high glycemic index foods that cause an unwanted insulin swing.
As part of an overall low GI diet or nutritious food plan, eat moderate amounts of the healthy, low glycemic “Foods to Choose” and avoid the overweight, unhealthy “Foods to Refuse.” It’s just that simple!
