The glycaemic index (GI) refers to how quickly sugar from the carbohydrate you eat is released into your bloodstream after ingestion. Foods with a low GI cause a small rise in your blood-sugar level over a longer period of time, which in turn gives you greater satiety from the food you eat.

Remember that you can always gain weight when you overeat on low-fat foods as this energy also has to be used.

I'll tell you more on GI on my next issue.....

Eat Moderately & Exercise Regularly!!!
