Higher glycemic index foods and fewer whole grain foods means greater risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to diet research at Harvard on 91,249 adult women in the U.S. over 8 years.
An Australian prospective diet study of over 36,000 adults also showed a higher risk with higher glycemic index foods, and a lower risk with more carbohydrate and magnesium intake…with less insulin resistance and better control of metabolic syndrome.
People with diabetes or with pre-diabetes or with insulin resistance should certainly try to eat a lower glycemic index diet regularly. But does it help you lose weight? Yes, it can, with the right medical program and information. Calculate your BMI .
