Following a Low GI diet could help you keep your blood sugar levels from rising after meals.
What Is a Low-GI Diet?
The basic premise behind the low-glycemic-index diet, low GI, is that all carbs are not created equal.
Some cause big spikes in blood sugar and others have little impact on blood sugar levels.
Specifically, the glycemic index measures how much a 50-gram portion of a carbohydrate raises blood sugar levels compared to pure glucose, which has a glycemic index score of 100.
Typically, foods that score higher than 70 are considered high-glycemic-index (GI) foods; those that score 55 and under are considered low-GI foods.
But what foods can I eat?
Many highly refined foods, including white bread, corn flakes, and instant potatoes have high GI scores. While unprocessed, high-fiber foods tend to have lower GI scores.
But wait. It isn’t as simple as saying: choose unprocessed high-fiber foods.
Foods such as carrots and potatoes can either be high-GI or low-GI foods, depending on several factors, including how long they are stored and how they are cooked or processed.
Pasta that is cooked al dente has a lower score than pasta that is cooked longer.
Rice can range from a low of 55 to more than 100, depending on variety and cooking time. The same is true with potatoes and the riper the fruit or vegetable, the higher the GI score.
Research suggests that the GI response to a given food also varies from person to person and can even vary within the same person from day to day.
Some highly processed foods like some candy bars score low. A Snicker’s bar, for example, has a GI score of about 55.

“My wife and I have been using the Manna now for just over a year. We both lost more than 20 kgs using it as a meal replacement twice a day. The change in formulation last year did not enhance the taste. As a matter of fact, I was looking to go elsewhere. However, this new formulation tastes great and we will continue to use it. Would be nice if your retail outlets got the new formulation as I don’t drink the old one. But I must say, ordering from the factory has been great with speedy delivery.” – Danie de Waal
