Introducing You To Glycemic Index
People with diabetes need to take care of their diet so their blood sugar levels don’t rise. The glycemic index (GI) is one of the more effective ways of determining if a particular food is suitable for a diabetic patient.
Fatty fish should be a part of your regular diet even if you don’t have diabetes. They have the all-important omega-3 fatty acids, which can protect you from several diseases. These fatty acids also help in improving your heart health.
Flaxseeds are another food that has very few carbs with no GI value. They are also packed with omega-3 fatty acids and rich in fiber. Because the fiber in flax seeds is insoluble, it helps improve your blood sugar levels.
Eggs can be a great addition to your diet, as they can reduce inflammation and improve your insulin sensitivity while increasing your good cholesterol levels. Eggs can, at the same time, reduce harmful cholesterol levels.
Greek yogurt is an excellent addition to a low GI diet due to its minimal carbs. With only 6 to 8 gm of carbs in a serving, it’s lower than regular yogurt. It also has fat-conjugated linoleic acid, which will keep you full for longer after meals.
Strawberries fall under the low GI foods because one cup of strawberries has only 53 calories and around 13 grams of carbs. Of that 13 grams, approximately 3 grams are fiber, making it an excellent fruit for those with diabetes. Strawberries also contain polyphenols, a plant compound with potent antioxidant properties.
