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.
