The glycemic index (or GI index) is a system for rating how certain foods affect our blood sugar. White bread, for instance, makes blood sugar climb faster than Tobey Maguire in Spiderman 3.
Foods high on the GI index that cause blood sugar to soar are sugary cereals, donuts, candy, and most processed sweets.
Try to aim for foods with a low glycemic index. Your body will digest these foods slowly leaving you feeling fuller longer, so you don’t have to munch and can save on some of those extra calories. Brown rice, legumes, whole grain cereals vegetables, and most fruit are low glycemic index foods. Surprisingly, pasta is low on the glycemic index, mainly because pasta is not made with yeast like white bread.
