Low GI

Low GI dieting is all the rage right now and certainly far more scientific than the many other diets out there. The Glycemic index is used to measure the impact of the foods we out on our blood sugar. Low GI foods take longer to digest and do not have the effect of quickly raising blood sugar. The effect is a more sustained release of energy to your body resulting in a lowered need for food intake to satisfy your body.

Food with a high glycemic index give your body a rush of energy that soon dissipates with the result that you get hungry in a short space of time. Low GI diets should not be called diets simply because we associate “diet” with weight loss. Now this is not to say that going on a low GI eating plan won’t help you lose weight, it is simply a way of eating that supplies your body with a constant flow of energy.

To give you an idea, high GI cereal would be something like Rice krispies and a low GI cereal would be All bran. OR high GI bread would be a bagel and low GI would be wholewheat bread. Most friut and vegetables would be low GI with the exception of things like pumpkin, dates or bananas. Most of it is pretty much common sense but cooking these foods is where it becomes more problematic… sauces with cream or sugar are no no’s.

Low GI diets are reputed to help reduce the risk of getting diabetes as well as offering weight loss and sustained energy. certainly more than a diet and a way of life.
