Prove A Low Glycemic Diet Will Work For You


Here's how to prove It to yourself.
Check your blood sugar to find out how high and low GI foods affect you.

  1. Test your blood sugar right before the meal.
  2. Eat a meal containing 2 or 3 servings of high glycemic index foods.
  3. At 90 - 120 minutes after you start eating, test your blood sugar again and record the results. Determine your increase in blood sugar for the meal (subtract your pre-meal number from your 90-120 minute number).
  4. The following day substitute equal amounts of low-GI foods for the higher GI foods in the same meal as the day before.
  5. Check your blood sugar in the same way - before the meal and between 90 - 120 minutes after you start eating the Low GI meal and record the results. Determine your increase in blood sugar for the meal (subtract your pre-meal number from your 90 - 120 minute number after you start eating).
  6. Now compare the two readings to see how the high and low GI foods affected your blood sugar.
