Glycemic index: Learn more!

If you would like to know more about glycemic index and glycemic load, below are three of the best, most accessible (i.e., you don’t need to know how to read an original scientific article) sources I’ve found. You’ll get good basic information, plus ideas for incorporating a lower glycemic way of eating into your life, if you are so inclined.

You might wonder if eating “low glycemic” means that every carbohydrate choice must be low GI and low GL. No, it does not. Many of the research articles I read referred to making lower glycemic choices about 50-60 percent of the time. Eating lower glycemic should not mean obsessing over every food choice! If you want to incorporate these principles into your meals, take it one step at a time.
