index Low-glycemic index diet is the best way to stay fit.
Find out more about the power of glycemic index.
Glycemic index (GI) describes the process of carbohydrate digestion and glucose absorption into the bloodstream.
Carbohydrates with high GI break down quickly during digestion and release glucose rapidly, triggering glucose spikes. Carbohydrates with low GI break down more slowly and release glucose gradually into the bloodstream resulting in lower glucose and insulin spikes.
Depending on the speed of glucose release foods are described
as glycemic high, moderate or low.
High Glycemic Foods (GI 70+)
e.g. white bread, chips, boiled potatoes, cornflakes
STOP / try to avoid
Moderate Glycemic Foods (GI 55-69)
e.g. banana, wholegrain bread, buckwheat groats
Consume with caution
Low Glycemic Foods (GI 0-54)
e.g. grapefruit, carrots (raw), nuts
GO / ideal for consumption
Findings from numerous studies indicate that lower-glycemic index diets decrease the risk
of type 2 diabetes1, may prevent and control of abdominal obesity and metabolic disorders2.
High glycemic index diets are associated with signiﬁcantly increased risk of cardiovascular diseases3, especially for women, and type 2 diabetes4.
