Understanding the GI values of specific foods can help reduce harmful spikes in blood sugar, as sugars and carbohydrates are broken down and your metabolism releases insulin to aid in digestion. Limiting your intake of high GI foods is a first-step towards controlling your cravings, increasing energy, and weight loss. By its very definition, foods with minimal to no carbohydrates will have no measurable GI value — so in general carb-free foods such as most meats, seafood, poultry, and vegetables have no GI value.
Foods with a low GI scores of help you feel less hungry, provide you with a feeling of having more energy, and may lead to weight loss and provide a reduced risk of diabetes and improved heart health. While looking through these GI scores, please be aware by itself this does NOT constitute a diet — there are some fruits with higher GI scores than some less-healthy processed food snacks.
To learn more, see our blood sugar chart. The list of foods you have tested forGI is amazing but i am surprised that GI an be so low in foods that I, as a health coach would not recommend to my clients as they are so high in other ingredients that, for health or nutritional, purposes I would not recommend to my clients to put anywhere near their body. All soft drinks for instance and cakes and etc. So many people where I live are on benefits and feed themselves on cheap bread and soft drinks, fries and other undesirable foods that make them obese and whilst a lot of this food in low in GI it is still causing them to get diabetes from obesity.
It would be good to include in this list a column for high bad fats in a food item or amount of sugar that creates this huge problem in foods people love and are cheap to buy.
GI index is a good guide but does not answer the lack of good nutritional in foods that create major problems creating obesity and ill health amongst the majority of people I see. You could make a spreadsheet with this information plus the fat content in another column. Highlight the bad foods in red, the moderate foods in yellow, and the good foods in green.
I am also on benefits and I stay away from big name grocery stores, even Walmart, for my produce. I shop at farmers markets, that take the benefits, and at ethnic stores Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern because they have much better prices.
I want to compute the GL of these products I bake but can find no glycemic index for any of these products. As a matter of fact, I can find no referendce to whole wheat or any other kind of wheat flour and do not understand why. If you know of any place I can find glycemic index numbers for almond flour or almond meal, flaxseeds and other products that are not wheat, please advise — with all the attention on these products, I do not understand the void — can you help me?
The University of Sydney has an excellent website full of glycemic index info. If I make my own bread or dumplings, pancakes, muffins etc which flours, if any, are low GI? What about sprouted grain breads? This is because the GI rating of a food must be tested physiologically that is in real people. What should you do with your own baking? Try to increase the soluble fibre content by partially substituting flour with oat bran, rice bran or rolled oats and increase the bulkiness of the product with dried fruit, nuts, muesli, All-Bran or unprocessed bran.
Bread made from sprouted grains might well have a lower blood-glucose raising ability than bread made from normal flour. When grains begin to sprout, carbohydrates stored in the grain are used as the fuel source for the new shoot.
Chances are that the more readily available carbs stored in the wheat grain will be used up first, thereby reducing the amount of carbs in the final product. Furthermore, if the whole kernel form of the wheat grain is retained in the finished product, it will have the desired effect of lowering the blood glucose level. Why is it that apprently the longer you cook some foods i.
The more well-done the pasta is, the faster it goes into your bloodstream. Al Dente takes longer, therefore blood sugar does not spike. The longer the starch cooks the more it gets broken down and therefore, is more readily digested. Serving the pasta or potato cold has an even better gylcemic effect than reheating. Makes my decision a lot easier knowing exactly what things are going to cost!
Need to loose about 59 pounds. Thank you for the sensible critique and cost info. Mostly fish and vegetables. Sometimes chicken or turkey but not all the time!
Is there a plan to start me on this regiment? Can you send some ideas and pricing plans? I tried turbo shakes with other companies and they gave me lots of gas…lol Thanks if this gets to you.
Hi Jim — sorry, I missed this comment at the time you posted it. I would also recommend looking at BistroMD https: Diet-to-Go has some really good plans that sound like they could work for you. Both are going to be a bit more pricey than Nutrisystem, but sound like they could be a better fit. My husband and I are considering NS. We also do not want to purchase ANY other food if possible.
Hi Lynn — I replied to Ray with a couple of other options BistroMD and Diet-to-Go …I would recommend checking out those reviews if you think they may be something that would work for you and your husband. There are definitely some ways to keep the costs down though. You will definitely want to incorporate fresh produce, though, as I think you would get tired of only eating their pre-made meals, and you will want to mix in a salad or something on most days just to get the health benefits from the fresh produce if nothing else.
Hi Pete — the frozen food is an additional charge, but can be included in your 4-week order or as an ala carte item. Many are on a fixed income and I am one of them … an older woman, a widow, and on a very fixed income. With the profit your company surely must realize, might you consider offering your program free to a few deserving people men and women who would benefit from it as well?
Just something you might consider … it just might be of benefit to your company in another way … good will! The Costco purchased gift cards can definitely be used and there is a space at checkout to put them in.
You will just have to make sure you put the gift card in a few days before the processing date for additional deliveries. I just went through this whole process and received my order today.
Thanks for the very thorough cost information. Helped make my decision a lot easier. I agree, too, the frozen meals are definitely a nice bonus — especially the desserts! There are some costs with buying your own fruits or vegetables to consider too, but overall it seems fairly affordable. Anyways, thanks for the detailed pricing breakdown, really appreciate it. Is it organic or are there a lot of preservatives in It.
Hi Isabel — Thanks for visiting. Hi Arlene — Thanks for visiting. I have always found it to be very easy to opt out. As long as you stay on the program for at least two months, you should be able to cancel without paying any type of penalty if you need to cancel after month 1 I mention one way to avoid the penalty in the review above , and customer service has always been very easy to deal with when I have needed to call them.
I live in Ottawa Ontario Canada. Where in Canada can I join. Are the costs of the meals increased to take in the difference between the American and Canadian do. Also what about duty and taxes, as well as shipping fees. I am a woman ,77 yrs old and need to lose at least 25 lbs. Please try to enlighten me.
Thank you very much for your assistance. What exactly is in the Turbo Shakes? Are the ingredients identified on the package? Best of luck — Norm.
Hi Obie — I added a picture of the nutrition fact label on our Nutrisystem Shake page. I have limited freezer space and feel that the frozen foods would be the way for me to start and continue a controlled size appropriate diet.
Does anyone offer three or four shipments monthly? If you get the Basic plan none of the foods are frozen, so that may be another option you could consider.
Diet-to-Go has a weekly shipment option — we have a review about them here: Hope that helps — NS. I have used your plan several years ago and did loose weight, but have gained some back. I am 81 yrs old and on a fixed income now. Having to buy extra food is not feasible me. Any suggestions how I can use your plan without extra purchases? Notify me of new posts by email.
