Low Glycemic Meals – Easy Way to Lose Weight and Stay Healthy

Certain foods can cause an increase in blood glucose levels. Depending on how quickly or slow these foods can determine increases in glucose levels, it’s assigned a specific value “The Glycemic Index”. A high blood sugar level (glucose level) beyond the normal value can cause blindness, kidney failure, or increase the cardiovascular risk.

Here are some foods containing carbohydrates, but having a low GI: dried beans and legumes (like kidney beans and lentils), all non-starchy vegetables, some starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, most fruit, and many whole grain breads and cereals like barley, whole wheat bread, rye bread, and all-bran cereal.

Fats and meats do not have any Glycemic Index, because they don’t have carbohydrate. On the contrary, fats and fibers seem to lower the GI of a food.

Everybody should adjust the meal plan depending on lifestyle, preferences, illness, blood glucose level, cholesterol, blood pressure and weight management.
