Low Glycemic Diets

Low Glycemic Diets

The glycemic index (GI) is a measurement of how much any given high-carb food will raise one’s blood sugar levels. It ranges from 1 to 100, and foods with a lower GI will not increase one’s blood sugar as much as a food with a higher GI. For diabetics and people trying to control their weight, keeping an eye on a food’s GI level is extremely important.
