Carbs, Glycemic Index and Weight Loss
While it used to be that carbohydrates were broken simply into two groups, simple and complex,
the new system for rating carbohydrates is the glycemic index. This new system measures how fast
and how far blood sugar rises after you eat a food that contains carbohydrates.
White bread is considered to be a high glycemic food because it converts almost immediately
to blood sugar, which is harder for the body to break down. Brown rice, on the other hand,
has a low glycemic index, because it is digested more slowly, causing a slower change in blood sugar.
When you pay attention to the glycemic index, you will probably be able to tell which
foods are high in glycemic index, and which foods have a low glycemic index. It comes
back to common sense. Candies, sodas, white breads, potatoes, French fries, and white
rice will all have a high glycemic index, meaning that they convert almost immediately
to blood sugar. Whole grain foods, vegetables (except potatoes), high fiber fruits and
nuts and beans all have a low glycemic index and are slower to convert to blood sugar,
making it easier for the body to use them for energy.
Some other things to be aware of when deciding which carbohydrates are the following:
Fiber content. Fiber shields the starchy carbohydrates in food immediate and rapid attack by digestive enzymes. This slows the release of sugar molecules into the bloodstream.
- Ripeness. Ripe fruits and vegetables tend to have more sugar than unripe ones, and so tend to have a higher glycemic index.
- Type of starch. Starch comes in many different configurations. Some are easier to break into sugar molecules than others. The starch in potatoes, for example, is digested and absorbed into the bloodstream relatively quickly.
- Fat content and acid content. The more fat or acid a food contains, the slower its carbohydrates are converted to sugar and absorbed into the bloodstream.
- Physical form. Finely ground grain is more rapidly digested, and so has a higher glycemic index, than more coarsely ground grain.
It can’t be repeated enough that eating too much of any one food, no matter what is contains, will at some point have a negative overall affect on weight. This is why a diet that contains foods that come from both plants and animals is ideal. If you have reached your ideal weight on a low-carb diet and are looking to move into a maintenance phase or are concerned about the possible long-term effects of a low-carb diet, then make the decision to learn about which carbohydrates will support a healthy weight.
Natural Support for Using Carbohydrates
Since we know that carbohydrates are important for energy and to assist with organ function, we know that it is important to make them part of our diet. However, unless we always include the right type of carbohydrates, their place in our diet can have a negative affect on our weight. Some carbohydrates, such as those in white breads, cookies, French fries and sodas are hard for the body to process because they convert so quickly into sugar. This sugar is dumped into the blood stream and your body is forced to pull it out of your blood and store it. So maintaining your blood sugar levels is important to overall healthy weight management.
Maybe you have decided to incorporate carbohydrates back into your diet after using a low-carb diet to lose weight. If so, your body may need help properly using the carbohydrates. Detrinol-PC™ may be the tool you need to effectively use the carbohydrates in your diet. Detrinol-PC™ harnesses the latest research to provide two very unique, key ingredients, Goat’s Rue and Chlorogenic Acid, in a powerful base of nutrients traditionally used as part of a healthy diet to help maintain healthy glucose levels.*
Chlorogenic Acid, derived from Artichoke, supports healthy glucose levels* According to a study that was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Chlorogenic acid significantly diminished glucose production. Healthy levels of glucose means carbohydrates are not as likely to be stored as excess weight on the body.*
Detrinol can help you process the carbohydrates that enter your body, when you use it along a sensible diet and moderate exercise program.
