Sticking to a diet of foods with low GI can have many benefits. One, you feel better and more energized, as the glucose is slowly released into your body. You will not get hungry easily, which makes it easier to lose weight. Low GI foods can also lower the instances of heart related diseases. Finally, foods with low glycemic index can help you avoid speed up the effects of diabetes. The only time that food with high glycemic index can be recommended is in cases of hypoglycemia, where the high dose of sugar can re-energize the person and bring their blood sugar up to a normal level.
If all type 2 diabetics had someone taking care of them, maybe they would eat more fruit and vegetables! It would be great to have someone to remember to buy all those healthy foods to turn into great green salads, fruit salads, or for you to grab for a snack.
