A low glycemic diet is full of more whole grains, nuts, legumes, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and healthy fats. It will be lower in foods that have a high glycemic index, like potatoes, white rice, white bread, and other junky things like candy, cookies, cakes, and sweet drinks. While the GI is just a number on paper, the value can change depending on the quantity of food consumed, as well the preparation and combination of foods served together. A low GI food, typically a whole food, higher in fiber, fat or protein can curb the blood sugar spike from a higher GI food. A well put together menu plan is a great way to focus on whole, real food and also curb naturally occurring sugar spikes from wholesome foods that happen to sit high on the GI.
