The Secrets of Using The Glycemic Index
The Secrets of Using the Glycemic Index is your guide to an effective weight management system. It's not a diet, but it will help get to your ideal weight - finally! A diet implies you follow rules for a certain period of time, then resume your normal eating patterns, hoping and praying that the weight won’t come back.
A weight management system works for you now and in the future. By mastering this unique way of classifying foods, you can not only lose weight right now, but also keep it off for the rest of your life.
In the process, you can improve your health and even lengthen your life by reducing the risks of diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and a host of degenerative diseases associated with excess weight.
The system is called the glycemic index (GI), and has often been called the “missing link” in the dieting dilemma. Originally developed for patients suffering from Type 2 Diabetes, it recently became clear that it could help anyone manage their weight and prevent diabetes before it becomes a permanent problem.
The glycemic index evaluates foods according to how quickly the body converts the carbohydrates in the foods into glucose, or blood sugar. Foods that are low on the glycemic index create a slow, moderate rise in your blood sugar that is optimal for energy efficiency.
As an individual trying to lose weight, you want to choose low GI foods, which lead to lower insulin levels following your meals. This will help keep your hunger at bay and help you feel full longer. Additionally, the slower the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose, the more efficiently your body can dissolve fat and convert it into energy. It’s a win-win situation!
In contrast, foods high on the glycemic index cause your insulin levels to spike following meals, and then crash several hours later. At this point you feel hungry and exhausted. Who isn’t familiar with that 3 p.m. sugar crash?
The roller coaster ride of insulin surges from high GI foods can eventually lead to insulin resistance, which is just a few steps away from full-blown diabetes.
Did you know that 95 percent of diets on the market today fail? This means you’re not the only one coming out of that “bad relationship” with your last diet. The road to weight loss is filled with broken dreams—and untold pounds gained in futile attempts to lose a few.
Yes, weight gain is an ironic side effect associated with dieting. First comes the honeymoon period where it looks as though you’re actually going to lose weight—and keep it off.
