Eating Foods Lower On The Glycemic Index        Helps Manage Your Blood Sugar


Eating foods that are good for you can be tricky, especially when you’re trying to manage your blood sugar level, manage your weight and get on the road to a healthier lifestyle.


Every food you eat has a glycemic index, which tells you how rapidly that particular food causes your blood sugar to rise. The glycemic index analyzes the impact food has on your blood sugar. The highest number is 100, and it goes down from there. The lower the number, the longer it stays in your body to prevent the sugar high and subsequent crash.


Low-glycemic foods that are good choices for a healthy diet include veggies, fruits, whole grain pastas, low-fat ice cream and, occasionally, some candy bars. Eating low glycemic index foods is the basis for many popular diets.  You can also use the index to  come up with a meal plan that is realistic, safe, healthy and meets all your energy and nutritional needs. 


If you do need to lose weight, the Glycemic Index (GI) for foods can be very helpful  in your meal planning.


It’s common knowledge that in order to lose weight you have to “burn” more calories than you consume. When your body to uses more calories to digest food than the actual calorie content of the food itself, it results in your body burning up excessive stored fat from your body.  Using the Glycemic Index For Foods to plan your meals and snacks can help you eat better, manage your blood sugar levels and lose weight - all at once.
