I think it is important to note that about half of shoppers (53%) get the connection that low glycemic index
foods are important for controlling their blood sugar levels," said HealthFocus International's Barbara Davis, PhD, RD, vice president of market research.
Searching for links between HDLs and variuos facets of the diet, such as fats and carbohydrate consumption, only one strong correlating factor emerged: glycemic index
Perhaps the proprietary strategy is to create an axial suite of foods, snacks and beverages that are clinical research-confirmed low glycemic index
, build a diet/lifestyle around them, and then show that their incorporation works for weight and fat loss--better than any other diet, both for aesthetics and metabolic health.
Additionally, the World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization recognize the glycemic index
and cite various studies that suggest low GI foods may help prevent heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

This is a real disservice to the weight-loss client because it leads to restricting healthful foods that may have a high glycemic index
by themselves but when eaten with other foods are not a problem.
The 'magic' of the Solo bars is that we have done all the work for the consumer, and the glycemic index
of each bar is calorie-controlled and independently, clinically validated with a very low value between 22-28.
Spherix is optimistic that continuing news reports about the health benefits of tagatose, combined with awaited FDA guidelines for a low glycemic index
, and its superior taste will allow tagatose to penetrate the sweetener market more rapidly.
GI diet books are being sold in Tesco (UK), which is currently re-labelling many of its products to show the glycemic index
The word "glycemic" refers to the effect carbohydrate foods have on blood sugar and insulin levels; the glycemic index
ranks this effect on a scale of 0 to 100.
As you consider covering this shift in the Atkins diet, we encourage you to speak with the following NutriSystem representatives, who can give you the real skinny on why a lower Glycemic Index
program is the way to go for sustained weight loss:
21 /PRNewswire/ -- A new research study from the Children's Hospital in Boston, which was published in the British medical journal Lancet calls attention to the effectiveness of the glycemic index
(GI) diet and further adds to the science which demonstrates that the principles of the Atkins Nutritional Approach work.
Foods with a lower glycemic index
are believed to increase satiety, which means you feel fuller longer, aiding with weight management.
Also, since our studies on the DASH diet in the 1990s, I have continually been asked if it would make a difference if the carbs in the DASH diet had a low glycemic index
rather than a high one.
(GI) concept is used to illustrate this difference .
