What is Glycemix Index (GI); Blood Glucose Levels & how fast are carbohydrates absorbed

​​GLYCEMIC INDEX 

A Simple And Easy Way To Weight Loss

 The Glycemic Index is a tool for measuring the rate at which the carbohydrates in a particular food are absorbed into your bloodstream (check table below). The higher the Glycemic Index number, the more rapid a rise in blood sugar levels.


 Repeated spikes in blood sugar levels, leads to insulin resistance and cultivates the growth of visceral fat in the abdomen, which tends to lead to diabetes and obesity problems. 


The speed of digestion is determined by a variety of factors including which other nutrients are consumed with the carbohydrate, how the food is prepared, individual differences in metabolism, and the chemistry of the carbohydrate. Consuming protein, fiber and fats with high carbohydrates tend to lower the Glycemic Index of a meal. 


​Choose mostly Low Glycemic Index (LGI) food from numbers 55 and lower to maintain stable insulin levels.  Soon you will not need charts and numbers to choose nutritious food, just your common sense. ​
