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.

With the decline of the low-carb diet came the birth of the G.I. Diet. Perhaps the hottest diet to hit the weight loss circuit in 2005, the G.I. Diet measures foods based on their Glycemic Index -- the speed at which foods are broken down to form glucose. Saturated fat and processed foods are replaced by complex carbohydrates. The diet is a balance of protein, carbs and healthy fats.
