There is a lot of talk these days about a new meal planning tool called the Glycemic Index (GI). But there is also a lot of misunderstanding about the GI, which has actually been around for more than 20 years.

It is a good idea to get to know and understand the Glycemic Index, because choosing foods with a low GI rating more often than choosing those with a high GI may help you to:

  • Control your blood glucose levels
  • Control your cholesterol levels
  • Control your appetite
  • Lower your risk of getting heart disease
  • Lower your risk of getting type 2 diabetes
