Glycemic Index Chart

The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of the effect carbohydrates have on blood glucose levels.  Understanding the GI values of specific foods can help reduce harmful spikes in blood sugar, as sugars and carbohydrates are broken down and your metabolism releases insulin to aid in digestion.  Limiting your intake of high GI foods is a first-step towards controlling your cravings, increasing energy, and weight loss.
