Glycemic Index Diet
The glycemic index (GI) is a scientific ranking that classifies foods based on how quickly they raise blood sugar levels. High-GI foods trigger a rise in blood sugar and release insulin, which is thought to trigger fat storage, intensify hunger, and lead to weight gain. The premise is that by avoiding foods that have a high-GI score, your appetite will decrease, and you will subsequently lose weight.
Carbohydrates fuel the body much like gasoline powers cars. Instead of limiting all carbohydrates, focus on eating ones that are high quality. Eating a balanced diet is essential for good health. The glycemic index (GI) helps you compare how quickly your body digests various carbohydrate-containing foods.
