I am definitely new to the whole GI thing. I am amazed by my own experiences though. It's definitely something I am learning more and more about everyday. I think it GREATLY impacts my nutrition and choices.
Thighs Be Gone and ANewCreation, thank you for answering.
But looking at this diet I'm confused. Do you go by the GL or the GI index?
Looking at the low GI Index I find M and M's. Now I know I shouldn't eat those.
So can either of you tell me exactly what you are doing?
Lower than 55 or 35 GI? and nothing else?
I'm so confused.
Gee, I didn't know M & M's were low glycemic either. I think I need to get some book reading done soon. Although in some women's magazines, they allow some dark chocolate M & M's for one of the daily snacks. But you have to portion them out, and thereby lies the rub.
Glycemic Load Diet is superb, specifically if you are insulin resistant, pre-diabetic, or diabetic. I have no more fluctuations in energy and mood, don't feel hungry, and my tummy issues have gone away. I'm losing weight, too.
