We will explain the best Indian foods to have in your low GU Veg diet and present you with a list of Healthy Recipes.
What is Glycemic Index?
Well, for one, the glycemic index isn't just some random diabetic diet you can find online or in a book somewhere. It's actually a scientific system to deal with your blood sugar levels. Always keep in mind that spikes in the body sugar levels can be devastating for health! Basically the glycemic index ranks carbohydrates on a scale of 0 to 100, and it's based on how they can raise your blood sugar levels after you eat. Foods with a higher GI level are digested faster, and therefore create a spike in your blood sugar levels. However, foods with a lower ranking are digested much slower. This allows the sugars to gradually be introduced in the body, and that means no spiking of the levels.
What is Low Glycemic Index Food?
A food with a glycemic index of less than 55 is considered a Low Glycemic food while 56 to 69 is Moderate and over 70 is considered High. Most of the vegetables, dals and legumes, nuts, oilseeds, milk and products and some fruits are relatively low on GI.
Avoid Processed Foods and Packaged Foods
As far as possible, try and eat home based food. You know what you are cooking and over time it is common sense of what to have and what not to. The biggest culprit is SUGAR which creates major inflammation in the body once its consumed and will raise your blood sugar rapidly and shut down your fat burning. The other obvious things to avoid are cornflour, maida and potatoes. Most packaged food has hidden ingredients like fructose corn syrup which is nothing but hidden sugar and then lots of preservatives which you may have not even heard off.
