Book - 2006
Rate this:
Think all carbohydrates are alike? Think again! Clinical evidence reveals a critical distinction in the ways different foods release carbohydrates into the bloodstream. The Glycemic Index (GI), was created to define this rate of release, which has significant health implications. Foods with a low GI rating enable us feel full longer, aiding weight loss and increasing energy. High GI-rated foods force the body to dump large amounts of insulin into the blood, resulting in fatigue, sugar cravings, and mood swings, with links to diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. The complete story of the Glycemic Index is here, along with ratings for more than 300 common foods, self-tests, enjoyable nutritional plans, and ways to use the GI to feel better and live longer.
