Is anyone else out there following the low gi way? or as i like to call it, the low girth way.
My friend recommended it to me as a healthy way of eating for life and i was looking for people to share ideas and recipes and support with. If you are unfamiliar with it, the basics can be found here http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/glycemic-index-diet
My friend recommended it after a period of constant dizzyness and episodes of fainting which the doctor could find no reason for (bloods and ECG normal). only thing "wrong" was my blood sugar was 5.2 which i believe is a little on the low side. He suggested it initially as a way to level off my blood sugar rather than having me up and down all the time which could have been contributing to the fainting. But he also said it would be a good way to teach myself the basics of a healthier lifestyle.
Long story short i do feel better since starting it and the dizziness and fainting have decreased remarkably.
Is anyone else doing this? How do you find it? Have you also set yourself a calorie "allowance" or just sticking to recommended healthy portion sizes?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
