These are impressive benefits that all of us would like to experience. What goes on inside our bodies that make this possible?
By consuming low sugar, or low glycemic index (low GI) foods, your body experiences a more gradual and more moderate rise in blood sugar levels. High GI values cause a sharp, more sudden rise and fall of sugar levels.
When blood sugar rises rapidly, a breakdown in normal metabolism may be indicated. Sudden blood sugar spikes can cause lethargy and hunger and may point to a need for weight loss.
Over time, this can lead to type 2 diabetes, blood vessel damage, and its many complications. The organs most at risk include the heart, brain, eyes, nerves, and kidneys.
Why wouldn’t everyone choose to be healthier and feel better by eating a low GI diet? Sometimes, the fear of hunger or cravings holds us back from trying to improve an overweight issue or a less than healthy lifestyle.
