Whether you want to lose weight, or are simply interested in eating to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, understanding the glycemic index is important.
Instead of going all over google trying to make sense of things, I put up an article on my website for you.
What is the Glycemic Index?
The Glycemic Index (GI) is a way of rating carbohydrate foods according to how quickly the carbohydrates are broken down into glucose. This also indicates how quickly that glucose enters the bloodstream.
The reasoning behind this is that carbohydrates that enter the bloodstream quickly raise blood sugar levels rapidly. This causes a spike in energy. Then it is followed by a drop after the effects of insulin are triggered.
If you are trying to lose weight, then paying attention to your blood sugar levels is very important to lose weight instead of getting stuck in a dieter's cycle.
And if you are trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, or gain muscle, controlling your blood sugar level is also important to stay healthy.
