    What is the Glycemic Index?
    The glycemic index (GI) ranks carbohydrate foods according to their effect on blood glucose levels (Brand Miller): High GI foods are absorbed quickly and cause a rapid rise in blood glucose levels. Low GI foods are broken down gradually over time and keep blood glucose levels more stable.

    What are the Benefits of the Glycemic Index?

    Eating a lot of high GI foods can be detrimental to your health because it pushes your body to extremes. This is especially true if you are overweight and sedentary. Switching to eating mainly low GI carbs that slowly trickle glucose into your blood stream keeps your energy levels balanced and means you will feel fuller for longer between meals.
    • Low GI diets help people lose and manage weight
    • Low GI diets increase the body's sensitivity to insulin
    • Low GI carbs improve diabetes management
    • Low GI carbs reduce the risk of heart disease
    • Low GI carbs improve blood cholesterol levels
    • Low GI carbs can help you manage the symptoms of PCOS
    • Low GI carbs reduce hunger and keep you fuller for longer
    • Low GI carbs prolong physical endurance

    How to Switch to a Low GI Diet

    The basic technique for eating the low GI way is simply a "this for that" approach - ie, swapping high GI carbs for low GI carbs.</SPAN> You don't need to count numbers or do any sort of mental arithmetic to make sure you are eating a healthy, low GI diet.
    • Use breakfast cereals based on oats, barley and bran
    • Use breads with wholegrains, stone-ground flour, sour dough
    • Reduce the amount of potatoes you eat
    • Enjoy all other types of fruit and vegetables
    • Use Basmati or Doongara rice
    • Enjoy pasta, noodles, quinoa
    • Eat plenty of salad vegetables with a vinaigrette dressing

    Hi Bambli,

    Thanks for the details about GI. Very useful.

    But are you sure about pasta & Noodles, I always that pasta & Noodles are made our of Maida (non-whole grain). Please explain more on this.

    hi abhi,

    As bambli said, before getting a pasta or noodle check whether they are made up of wheat/multi-grain/semolina

    Now-a-days most of the brands have turned smart..Maggi too has introduced an instant pasta variety . made in 5-minutes.it is made up of semolina/sooji/rava

    try them :thumbsup
