WHAT IS A GLYCEMIC INDEX?
Not all carbohydrate foods are created equal. In fact, they behave quite differently in our bodies. The glycemic index, also known as GI, describes this difference by ranking carbs according ot their effect on our blood glucose levels. Choosing how low GI carbs- the ones that produce only small fluctuatins in our blood and insulin levels- is the secret to long-term health reducing our risk of heart disease and diabetes and is the key to sustainable weight loss.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE GLYCEMIC INDEX?
Eating alot of high GI foods can be detrimental to your health because it pushes your body to extremes. This is especially true if you are overweight and inactive. Switching to eating mainy low GI carbs that slowly trickle glucose in your blood stream keeps your energy levels balanced and means you will feel fuller longer between meals.
HOW TO SWITCH TO A LOW GI DIET
The basic technique for eating the Low GI way is simply a "this for that" approach- i.el, swapping high GI carbs for low GI carbs. You don't need to count numbers or do any sort of mental arithmetic to make sure you are eating a healthy, low GI diet.
STEP ONE: WEIGHT LOSS PHASE (EATING PLAN) click here for the plan.
You will eat food that you've purchased and prepared yourself in this phase. Your eating plan will consist of high quality proteins and beneficial, low glycemic carbohydrates. This combination of foods encourages and allows your body to burn fat for fuel, instead of only relying on glucose (found in abundance in higher glycemic carbohydrates). The body will safely and naturally use fat for fuel and this process is called ketosis. Although it is not mandatory to measure ketones in your urine, when you are in ketosis, your body does not hold much extra water weight. Be sure you're drinking half your body weight in ounces daily to flush out all the toxins. Normally, you'll lose water weight very quickly when you first get in to ketosis.
