    • What is The Glycemic Index?
      Rating system that classifies how FAST carbs break down into blood sugar
      Based on a 1-100 Scale
      The higher the index, the faster the carb breaks down into blood sugar
    • Rating Break-Down’s
      High Glycemic Range: 70 and Up
      Mid Glycemic Range: 50-70
      Low Glycemic Range: 50 and Below
    • The Glycemic Load
       GL = (GI x the amount of carbohydrate) divided by 100
    • Glycemic Load Example
