Glycemic Index Information

 

 

 

The glycemic index is how fast food primarily sugar goes from the stomach into the blood stream.  We want to eat foods that have a low glycemic index because high glycemic index foods stress the pancreas, endocrine and immune systems. To enhance the lowering of the glycemic index we can eat foods together. If we do eat a food that is high on the index we should eat something lower and they will balance out. Also foods combined with quality protein or fat also lower the glycemic index. I say quality because of the ill effects of poor quality, an example wood be fried foods, or foods high in saturated fats. Some examples of good ones are avocado and fish.
