Glycaemic index (GI) diet is mainly used for people who suffer from diabetes. Glycemic index is used to measure how much certain food affects the glucose levels in the blood after consumption.
The food can be divided into three groups based on how much they raise glucose levels.
They are indexed on score range from 0-100:
High GI food with score 70 and higher, which are white rice, white bread, pretzels, white bagels, white baked potatoes, crackers, sugar-sweetened beverages.
Medium GI food with a score between 56-69. This group contains food such as bananas, grapes, spaghetti, ice cream, raisins, corn on the cob.
Following the GI diet will not necessarily give you significant weight loss, but it will significantly reduce risks of heart disease and is also valuable in controlling blood sugar levels.
Eating food with a lower GI index can help you reduce the amount of food you consume. The food with a low GI index also makes you feel less hungry as your body digests them slower than food with a high GI index. This can also help you reduce your weight as you will eat fewer calories.
Our dietitians at the diet clinic will help you to choose the right amount of food with a low GI index and suggest the right diet plan as per your individual needs.
