Glycemic Index: based on the rise in blood sugar, following the consumption of glucose (the final breakdown product of all carbohydrates). Scale is out of 100 (highest). White bread and glucose are 100. Here are some examples of low, medium, and high GI foods.

 

Remember, a whole food that has a higher GI, is generally better for you than a processed food with a lower GI.

 

Choose LOW and MEDIUM GI foods more often, as they’ll sustain your energy for longer periods of time and cause decreased cravings for sugary foods!
