The glycemic index is an interesting topic and one that most people don't fully understand especially when considering insulin sensitivity.

This is a system that ranks foods by how they affect your blood sugar levels. Low-glycemic foods (less than 55) produce a gradual rise in blood sugar levels that is easy on the body.

Foods between 55 and 70 are medium-glycemic index foods. Foods that are high-glycemic (more than 70) make blood sugar levels as well as insulin levels spike fast. That’s a health threat and leads to a host of health concerns including metabolic syndrome. 

We know that preventing blood sugar levels from spiking pays off in many ways. Foods low on the glycemic index appear to stave off heart disease, prevent type 2 diabetes, help you evade serious side effects if you already have diabetes, it curbs your appetite so you are easier to lose weight, and increases your energy throughout the day. 

High glycemic foods breakdown into sugar in your bloodstream very quickly can cause rapid changes in your blood glucose level. Starchy foods like potatoes are a good example. Potatoes have such a high GI rating; its almost the same as eating table sugar.

Understanding the importance of the Glycemic Index (GI) of foods can transform the way you look at foods on your plate and will dramatically impact your metabolic health. As an example, here is a comparison of foods that have the same GI rating.

  • Donut 🍩 = Watermelon 🍉(76)
  • Boiled Potato 🥔 = Gatorade 🥤(78)
  • White Pasta Noodles 🍝 = Banana 🍌 or Blueberries (51)
