Follow The Glycemic Index Diet Plan To Lose Weight Easily!

The glycemic index diet plan is a great way to lose weight if you're a hard loser.

By following this very easy plan, you are going to be eating foods that allow your blood sugar levels to stay on even levels all throughout the day.

However, if you've read my other page on the glycemic index diet you'll know what I feel about those who strictly follow it like it's a real "diet".

What I'm proposing you do is follow a hybrid combination of a mix between the glycemic index diet plan and normal, sensible calorie-driven eating.
To start off, take a look at this picture below. This picture shows the difference between your blood sugar levels when you eat low glycemic foods as compared to high glycemic foods.

The higher that line goes, the fatter you get. It's almost as simple as that. This is also a major cause of fatigue after eating.

So what's wrong with this type of glycemic index diet plan?

Well, it only takes one thing into consideration and doesn't even take a look at calories.

The real key to implementing the glycemic index into your daily nutritional plan is to took a look at both the GI of foods as well as the calories in that food.

For example, pasta is a low GI food but very high in calories. So therefore, pasta is fine to eat as long as you eat it in very small quantities.

Once you start eating a lot of it is when you start getting in trouble. In my opinion it should only be eaten early in the day, before you workout preferably.

Many other foods that are horrible for you are also low GI foods, such as peanut M&M;'s.

An Easy To Follow Glycemic Index Diet Plan

So what can you do with all this information?

This is what I recommend.

Whenever you're going to eat something, take a quick peek at a glycemic index chart and see if you could possibly make that food lower in GI.

For example, instead of instant rice (GI = 87) you could opt for long grain rice (GI = 56).

By simply doing this, you can eat the same amount of calories without storing the extra fat that you would have if your blood sugar spiked!

This is a very easy thing to add into your diet. What I recommend doing is printing yourself out a glycemic index chart and paste it on your refrigerator.

Then, whenever you're making a meal, just take a quick look to see what would be good. Just make sure you know approximately how many calories you'll be consuming too. Don't make excuses such as "oh well it's a low GI food so it might be good for me".

Use some common sense when it comes to this approach, and you'll find it much easier to lose weight than you have previously noticed.
