The Glycemic Index

The Glycemic index (GI) is a chart that will help show the effect of food on your body's production and then release of insulin.  This information is very important to both dieters and to diabetics.  The lower the GI the smaller the impact on your pancreas and thus the less effect this food will have on your insulin levels.  Remember you want to make sure that if you are eating fats and wanting to lose weight that as the day goes on you want to ensure that the GI levels are lower because fat can stay in your blood for up to 8 hours if you have a very fatty lunch or dinner then have a food with a high GI this can result in the fat being absorbed by your body.  I will update this chart as often as I can. 

Quick note- The more fiber something has, for instance the pulp of fruit then the lower the GI will be so an orange has a lower GI then orange juice.
