Loose Weight And Stay Fit Through Glycemic Index Diet

The Glycemic Index
All of you would be aware that most of the carbohydrates lead to weight gain. Carbohydrates also lead  to increase in the blood sugar level. But you can't live without them because they are an important food group, and give you energy. Therefore you must eat carbohydrates with lower Glycemic Index to get maximum benefits.

The Glycemic index (GI), measures how much a 50-gram portion of carbohydrate raises a person's blood glucose level. There are three types of carbohydrates, the ones with lower GI, moderate GI, and high GI.

The Glycemic Index diet
The emphasis in this diet is that you have to eat carbohydrates with low GI. They are the best way to loose weight and at the same time control appetite. They keep you full for a longer time. So you do not indulge in over eating. Thereby in the longer run you consume less calories. On the other hand the high GI carbohydrates increase the blood glucose level and make you hungry sooner. The GI diet also lifts you energy level, and you never feel that you are on a diet.
