Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load–Which Foods are Best?

Dr John La Puma

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.

This is good news for those who think low carb is over. But which foods are low glycemic index foods? Use a glycemic index calculator, and a fiber calculator to find out.

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 .
