Low GI Diets


Sometimes a low carb diet is not enough to help you lose weight. Depending on your needs, whether you are looking to lose weight over a long period of time for lifelong health, whether you have a medical issue that requires weight loss, or whether you just want to lose those last couple of pounds, a low GI diet may be helpful to your weight loss goals.

A low GI diet is based on the glycemic index. Rather than saying all carbs are bad, or that you should avoid intake of carbohydrates, a low GI diet says that you should choose carbs that do not push blood glucose and insulin levels to the extremes. Not only does this type of diet maintain that this is a healthier lifestyle (putting you at a lower risk of heart disease, making it easier to lose weight, and making cholesterol levels more manageable), it could be an alternative to a restrictive low carb diet.

Talk to your doctor before making a decision. A doctor can help you determine if a low GI diet is the best for your body type, as well as what sort of exercises and dietary supplements will help you to lose weight the safest and most effective way possible. If you think this is the right diet for you, do some research into it, and visit your doctor’s office prepared with questions.
