  • Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about Glycemic Index and Diabetes Criteria.

  • Also don't forget to check out the link below, to find out, how this guy reversed his diabetes!

  • Turns out, the diabetes industry is selling us fake research!

  • But back to our topic.

  • When it comes to diabetes the optimal diet should include a low glycemic index. The glycemic

  • index and diabetes criteria revolve around the fruit issue due to many fruits containing

  • a high glycemic index. The question here is, is it safe to consume fruit on a regular basis

  • if you are a diabetic and it a regular consumption of fruit good when you are trying to lose

  • weight.

  • Common fruits that do not have a high glycemic index and the index is within a safe index

  • range are kiwi 47, banana 51, grapefruit 25, oranges 31, papaya 56 and mango 41. However,

  • watermelon has a high index of 72. An interesting factor that scientists have now proved is

  • that the index is not that reliable when it comes to predicting the cause and effect food

  • has on blood glucose levels, insulin and cholesterol levels.

  • Diabetics need to be concerned about the glycemic index of certain foods that are otherwise

  • fiber and nutrient rich. For instance fiber that is present in nuts has far more significance

  • in blood sugar levels than does the glycemic index. Carbohydrates that are high glycemic

  • such as various grains, which belong to the glycemic index and diabetes index, are not

  • recommended by researchers. However, these types of carbohydrates will not elevate the

  • blood sugars if the grains are eaten whole and the overall content of the diet is low

  • fat.

  • Glucose intolerance and insulin insensitivity or resistance is linked to high glycemic foods

  • when eaten with a large amount of fat. High levels of insulin is secreted when there is

  • a lack of insulin receptors in the cell surface and this is caused by eating foods that are

  • high in saturated fats. A low insulin response is notable when carbohydrates are eaten which

  • do not contain fat and this includes fruits.

  • When diabetics follow a low glycemic index and diabetes diet this could cause further

  • problems due to eating more foods that have a high fat content, as this will cause the

  • body to produce more insulin due to the diabetic being insulin resistant. The index is not

  • extremely accurate, due to the fact that foods react differently from person to person, so

  • how can this index be accurate.

  • Vegetables and fruit have a relatively low index, but this is not important. Even foods

  • that have a high index, there has been no concrete evidence that these affect diabetes

  • or any sugar metabolic disorders when it comes to a low fat diet. There are several cultures

  • such as the Chinese that diets comprise of mainly high glycemic foods such as rice and

  • potatoes and there is zero percent incidence of diabetes due to their diet.

  • People that advise people especially diabetics to refrain from certain vegetables and fruit

  • due to the glycemic index and diabetes is definitely not a necessity. This is stopping

  • people from eating natural foods. Natural foods are healthier than refined foods no

  • matter their status on the index.
