Glycemic Index Lab Major Reasons To Eat Low Glycemic Foods


Reason 1 Low Glycemic Is Low Carb Yeah, super simple. Very straightforward. Low GI foods are mostly the majority of foods you see in ‘low carb’ diets. When cholesterol assaults artery walls, the immune system responds the way it does to any injury—with inflammation. Choosing carbs rich in soluble fibre may help put the chill on that process by clearing out some of that cholesterol.

Reason 2 :

Reason 2 Improved Cholesterol Levels A low carbohydrate diet has been shown to improve HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels. A clinical study performed on 64 middle-aged men showed that a high fiber, low glycemic diet enriched with legumes reduced overall cholesterol levels, as well as a reduction in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels.


Reason 3 Help you lose weight Eating a low glycemic/ low carb diet has been shown in studies to be effective for weight loss. Low carb diets can result in two to three times the amount of weight lost compared to low-fat diets, without actively restricting calories. This is because you get more protein, which is, as mentioned above, harder for your body to digest.


Reason 4 Reduced Appetite Because of the slow release of sugar into your blood, your body doesn’t tell you it’s hungry. You don’t have a blood sugar crash. That slow release of sugars is the key here.


Reason 5 Less Belly Fat Visceral fat, also known as belly fat, is found deep within your abdomen, wrapping around your organs and putting you at risk of heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke. A diet centered around low glycemic, low carb foods has been proven to reduce belly fat in a greater proportion than a low-fat diet


Reason 6 Lowered Blood Pressure A low glycemic diet can help reduce blood pressure, which can reduce your risk for high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. If you have high blood pressure, a low carb, low glycemic diet can be an effective way to reduce your blood pressure levels.


Reason 7 Lower your risk of heart disease Eating more whole grains could also lower your risk of heart attacks—by up to 29 percent, according to James W. Anderson, M.D., the University of Kentucky nutritionist whose research helped make oat bran a nutritional superstar in the 1980s. Dr. Anderson chalked up the benefits to oats’ soluble fibre, which lowers cholesterol. But there’s more going on than that.
