Originally the Glycemic Index was designed to help people with diabetes control their blood sugar levels. However, it can be used as a very effective weight-loss diet.
The basis of this is that what works to control blood sugar, in theory, should help you drop extra weight.
Basically the Glycemic Index diet focuses on carbs. However, it gets a little complicated – here’s the basic idea:
Some foods like white bread, cookies, and white potatoes make your blood sugar rise quickly.
On the glycemic index diet, you eat carbs that produce a steadier rise in blood sugar; and the fibre in those foods helps you feel full longer. You’re not as hungry, and you feel more satisfied.
Sticking to a low glycemic index diet may help prevent conditions like diabetes and heart disease, but it’s not certain that this diet can help you lose weight any better or faster than a low-fat, generally healthy diet.
One study showed that people on a low-glycemic diet lost more fat than those on a high-glycemic diet with the same calories.
Therefore, the best diet is one that is low in GI and also low in calories. As most of our daily calorie intake comes from carbohydrates, like breads, pasta, rice, potatoes and other wheat products, we need to reduce carbohydrate intake or change to “better” carbohydrates.
That is why we developed the Manna Diet Plan, because it is low in GI but also low in carbohydrates.
To top it all, if you use the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement with each low carbohydrate meal, it will help you to stay satisfied for longer, but it will also help to control cravings and appetite for fast and healthy weight loss.
You can also use the Manna Low GI Shakes as a healthy meal replacement. This shake can also help to control appetite and reduce the daily calorie intake for effective weight loss.
