The low-glycemic (low-GI) diet involves swapping high-GI foods for low-GI alternatives. It has a number of potential health benefits, including reducing blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss and lowering your risks of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
The Diogenes study from Europe found that a moderately high protein, low GI diet is the best diet for longer-term weight management. A low GI diet assists you to reach and maintain your goal weight by helping you manage hunger, burn body fat and maintain your metabolic rate.
Did you know that your blood glucose levels play an important role in how energised you feel? High GI foods provide a quick burst of energy whereas low GI foods provide longer-lasting energy. Low GI foods are broken down slowly, trickling glucose into your system over time, providing a stable energy level. On the other hand, high GI foods cause a sudden spike in your blood glucose, which leads to peaks and troughs in energy.
