  • I'm glad you enjoyed my presentation on the glycemic index. When you look at the science behind this underrated concept, be it food science, human anatomy and physiology as well as human nutrition, at all makes sense doesn't it?

    Since you asked for a quasi shopping list of some common low GI carbohydrate-rich foods, here it is:

    • Breakfast Cereals: All Bran, oats (steel cut or old fashioned), Alpen Muesli - original
    • Fruits: Everything except papaya, kiwi, raisins, pineapple, cantaloupe, cranberry juice cocktail, watermelon
    • Breads: Sourdough rye, corn tortilla, rye, 100% whole grain
    • Grains: Barley, Uncle Ben's (white or brown), quinoa, all pasta (cooked al dente), tortellini, ravioli,lasagne
    • Legumes: Kidney beans, soy beans, lentils, cannellini beans, navy beans, pinto bens, chick peas, butter beans, baked beans
    • Starchy Vegetables: Butternut squash, peas
    • Snack Foods: All nuts, Dove dark chocolate, SoLo GI nutrition bars, m&ms (peanut), Extend bars, Doritos (plain), chocolate milk, Milky Way (lite), Kudos granola bars, potato chips, Combos

    This list is, by no means, complete, however, every food listed has been tested and has a GI of 55 or less. This means they are 'low' on the GI ranking scale. The list would grow much longer if we included some others carbs with an 'intermediate' ranking.

    If I have further piqued your interest in the glycemic index, you will find much more practical information in my book, Good Carbs, Bad Carbs, 2nd edition.

    Thanks again for your interest in the glycemic index.

    My best regards,

  • Fantastic overview of the glycemic index and it's practical implications - notably the thorough overview of the food factors that contribute to low or high GI foods - it's not just sugar!

    Dietary guidance is good, but a practical list of low glycemic foods can be helpful for those struggling with the 'What to Eat?' question.

  24. 24. Glycemic Load (GL): What does it mean? Glycemic load measures the degree of glycemic response and insulin demand produced by a specific amount of a specific food. Glycemic load reflects both the quality and the quantity of dietary carbohydrates. GL = GI/100 x CHO (grams) per serving Example: GL of an apple = 40/100 x 15g = 6g
  25. 25. Glycemic Load (GL): Calculation 28 g = 98/100 x 29g 1/2 cup glutinous rice 8 g = 38/100 x 22g 1/2 cup converted, LG rice 28 g = 38/100 x 73g 1 2/3 cups converted, LG rice 8 g = 98/100 x 8g 2 1/4 Tbsp glutinous rice
  26. 26. Glycemic Load (GL): Ranking Individual food portion: Low 0-10 Moderate 11-19 High 20+ Whole day: Low < 80 Moderate 100 High > 120
  27. 27. GI vs. GL Glycemic Index: ranks carbohydrates based on their immediate blood glucose response. GI = glycemic quality Glycemic Load: helps predict blood glucose response to specific amount of specific carbohydrate food. GL = glycemic quality quantity
  28. 28. Benefits of Low GI Diet Are there any documented benefits to lowering the GI of one’s diet? YES! BG levels cholesterol levels weight heart disease risk type 2 DM risk

  39. 39. What Should I Eat? http://www.mypyramid.gov
  40. 40. What Should I Eat? 2005 Dietary Guidelines Balance calories in with calories out. Eat balanced diet with variety of nutrient-dense foods and beverages. Consume 2 cups fruit, 2½ cups vegetables per day. (2,000 calories intake) Choose whole grains for at least half of daily grain consumption. Consume 3 cups FF/LF milk or equivalent. Keep fat consumption 20-35% of daily calories. (mono & polyunsaturated) Consume less than 2300 mg sodium/day. Choose foods with little added sugar or caloric sweeteners. Drink alcohol in moderation. Practice food safety handling and preparing rules.
  41. 41. Caution! Do not focus exclusively on achieving a low glycemic load diet with all low glycemic index food choices. Result could be: high fat low carbohydrate low fiber calorically dense Instead…
  42. 42. A Better Idea Aim for a well-balanced diet that includes low glycemic index carbohydrates. Use glycemic load as a guide for controlling portions. Hint: Low GI CHOs allow for larger portions , while regulating the GL. High GI CHOs require smaller portions to regulate the GL.
