Low-glycemic foods help dieters
I’ve for some years favored low-glycemic foods. I very seldom eat bread (and never at home: don’t have it in the house), my breakfast cereal is oats, and white potatoes are not in my diet. I believe this article is intriguing, but they categorize white rice as high-glycemic, but in fact converted (white) rice has a relatively low glycemic index. My list of foods, sorted by glycemic index, is on my other computer. I’ll post it after I return home. In the meantime, here’s a link to several categories of foods, each sorted by glycemic index.
This article explains why it’s important. General guide:
- Low (good) glycemic index levels: 55 or less
- Medium glycemic index levels: 56–69
- High (bad) glycemic index levels: 70 or higher
