Have you heard of the Glycemic Index?

The glycemic index is a method of assigning a number to carbohydrate-containing foods according to how much each food increases blood sugar levels.

There are three categories that food is placed in:

  • Low GI (55 or less) – Choose these most often
  •  Medium GI (56-69) – Choose these less often
  • High GI (70 or more) – Choose these least often

Regulating your blood sugar is important, even if you don’t suffer from blood sugar troubles.  

Here are some examples of foods that fall within these categories:

Low GI foods: apples, bananas, strawberries, carrots, chickpeas, cashews.

High GI foods: watermelon, potato, cereals, white bread, white rice.

Highly processed foods fall on the High GI list, and a great place to start is avoiding highly processed foods.  Have you found it difficult to kick the processed foods? What’s been the hardest to ditch for you?
