Glycemic Index
The Glycemic Index is a method of ranking carbohydrate-based foods based on the rise in blood sugar they produce after consumption.  The higher the rise in your blood sugar the higher the rise in your insulin levels.  This is a critical factor for diabetics and, through recent studies, lower blood sugar has been tied to an increase in satiety after eating and increased “good cholesterol”.  This has spawned several diet and nutrition programs aimed at controlling your weight through maintaining your blood sugar levels by consuming foods that are relatively low on the Glycemic Index.

» Sugar Busters
Published 03/30/2006 | Glycemic Index | Rating:
Cut sugar to trim fat. That’s the novel approach behind the Sugar Busters program.  According to the physicians who created the concept, it’s not fat or calories that contribute to obesity – it’s an overabundance of the sweet stuff. Sugar causes the body to produce insulin, and too much insulin packs on the pounds. Check out your favorite snack or salad dressing and it’s likely high in sugar, especially if it bears the fat-free or low-fat label.
