Low Glycemic Diet + Weight Loss Plan

Low Glycemic Diet + Weight Loss Plan

The glycemic index is a system for classifying carbohydrate-containing foods according to how fast they raise blood-glucose levels inside the body. In simplest terms, foods with a low glycemic value generate small fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin levels. This makes them much more beneficial than foods with a high glycemic value that raise the blood glucose and insulin levels faster.

The glycemic index method classifies carbohydrates according to their effect on blood-glucose instead of according to their chemical structure of either simple (Simple carbohydrates are sugars, like glucose, fructose and lactose.) carbohydrates or complex (Complex carbohydrates are starches and fiber; wholegrain breads, pasta, rice, beans, fruits, and vegetables.) carbohydrates.

A substance called ChREBP (carbohydrate response element binding protein) is a unique trigger that causes excess carbohydrates to be stored as fatty acids as body fat. The study was first published in the current issue of the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism.

The study is a continuation of a five year old discovery of the ChREBP which is a separate acting trigger for fat storage. It was originally thought that Insulin was the only fat storage system in the body previous to this discovery.
