Confused by the science of Glycemic Index?

The Glycemic Index is a measure of how quickly carbohydrates change your blood sugar levels.

Carbohydrates are your body's energy source. They are typically bread, cereal, pasta and similar "carbs". They break down into sugar in your blood stream and provide fuel for your body.

Every carbohydrate has a Glycemic Index. Some are high and some are low.

Imagine a plant. A steady drip of water helps it thrive. A frequent flood will kill it.

Now imagine your body. The carbs you eat are like the water. You can control whether it drips or floods. Some foods are "drippers" and others are "flooders".

Slow steady drips of sugar into your blood stream helps you thrive. A flood of sugar can kill you.

However, you don't see the impact of the frequent flooding immediately. This is one secret killer behind diabetes, heart disease and other degenerative diseases.
