GI Diet

The Glycaemic index also known as the glycaemic index is a points system used for calculating carbohydrates based on what they do to the blood sugar levels in the first two hours. It compares the carbohydrates gram for gram giving them an exact calculation and therefore helping people calculate what exactly is needed to lose weight. Fast carbs are the ones that are not so good for the body and have the highest glycaemic rate. Slow carbs are the ones that release sugar slowly into the body thus creating a lower glycaemic index. If it is a lower rate, then the need for insulin is less therefore the fat is more likely to burn away. This is not always the case as same foods have a slower release time for carbs into the blood but give a high insulin response.

Different foods are given different glycaemic ratings and standards and some foods are used as a sort of benchmark to test other foods on. One of these foods is white bread whereby the glucose in other foods can be compared against the bread, it being a chart of reference. Generally it is the fast carbs that one should stay away from so that the fat can burn away as quickly and as safely as possible. This is done when the body turns to the fat reserves to burn away rather than putting on fat, which can be easily done with the consumption of fast carbs.

The glycaemic effect of foods depends on many different factors. One is the current health of the person, another is the type of food, and also whether the food has had anything added to it like salt or vinegar. The presence of added sugar may have an effect and similarly will add fat to an otherwise healthy meal. These types of foods and all the different factors involved can be learned through this diet program. It can get a little complicated to work out points and such but if you follow the instructions, it can work.

The GI diet plan is a relatively new way of thinking about food and takes into account many specifics. It does heavily depend on the client's determination and also regular exercise is by no means frowned upon. With exercise, the GI index can be a little more flexible. It has had many success stories and thus to some effect proved the validity of such a plan.

It is important when thinking about undertaking any kind of diet plan, to consult your doctor or physician first. He or she can advise you if the plan you are thinking about taking is the right one for you. Some work well for some people and some do not work well at all. It is also important to take into account any medication you are currently taking, as some plans are not recommended when taking certain prescription drugs. Finally, it is crucial to stick to a plan once you start it. It requires regular commitment and determination. Many people fall into the trap of mixing plans and seeing which ones work and which ones don't without giving it enough time to see any results. You can find out more information about this plan or any other diet plan from your doctor or physician. There is also a wealth of information available on the Internet. Many diet plans have websites where you can find out such information like exact diet plans, free promotional offers, meet other members, check out your local center if it is a meetings based plan, and much, much more.
