Glycemic Load is a measure the amount of sugar and starch in food and their impact on the body. A measure of Glycemic Load shows how much carbohydrate there is in each food and how fast the carbohydrate will break down into glucose (and therefore how quickly your blood sugar levels will rise).
Foods with a low Glycemic Load release their glucose more slowly so you maintain stable energy levels for longer. When you eat a low Glycemic Load diet:
• You will stop producing more glucose than you can use, so won’t gain fat.
• You won’t suffer from food cravings.
• Your body will be reprogrammed to burn fat rapidly.
• You will be able to lose weight and sustain your weight loss permanently.
There are three simple rules to follow
1. Eat no more than 40 GLs a day
2. Eat protein with carbohydrate
3. Graze don't gorge
By applying these three simple principles you will become a master of your blood sugar control, weight and cravings. My books show you exactly how to do this, with lots of delicious and easy to prepare recipes. Within a couple of days you'll instinctively know what is high or low GL in the supermarket and at restaurants. Within a month this simply becomes the way you eat. It is a diet for life with many health benefits beyond losing weight.
