CAROL’S CORNER

Welcome to another night here at Carol’s Corner. Pull up a chair, grab your favorite drink , and get comfy. Gonna have a bunch of pictures, before we conclude our study on the Glysaemic Index and Diet. The blouse is the star in today’s picture. From the color to the style, it has it all. Back view, below.

This blouse has it going on, don’t you think?

I made the jewelry to go with this blouse, and this FitBit band goes with it perfectly.

The last picture is getting ready to go out in our lovely winter we’ve been having. Hadn’t worn this coat in awhile, but there is more than enough room in it now. Thought it looked nice with my pants and boots.

So that’s the picture show for tonight, so let’s get this ball rolling and finish up what we’ve been talking about the last two nights.

HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE?

Most GI Diets suggest you will lose 1-2 lbs per week, with possibly bigger losses the first few weeks where you might be losing water weight as well as fat. This follows the guidelines recommended by nutrition experts.

HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM THE ATKINS DIET?

Unlike the Atkins Diet that bans most carbohydrates, especially in the early stages,GI diets actively encourage you to eat many carbohydrates and antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables. The diet is also high in fiber, which means you’re less likely to get constipated. Because carbohydrates aren’t restricted to any great degree, you won’t get the other unpleasant side affects associated with the Atkins diet, such as bad breath and headaches. GI diets tend to follow healthy eating guidelines , and are low in fats, especially saturates. http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/diet/healthyeatingplan.htm

And if that isn’t enough, GI diets are easier to follow if you are a vegetarian.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS?

Following a diet that includes many foods with a low GI index , may play a role in helping to prevent or reduce the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes, according to experts at Diabetes UK, the largest Diabetes Organization in the UK. Research has also shown that lower GI diets,can help improve levels of “good” chloresterol, and so may reduce the risk of heart disease.

IS A GI DIET SUITABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES?

As always you should check with your doctor first. However, most diabetes experts agree that including foods with low GI values in meals can help to maintain even blood sugar levels. However, they also agree that eating to control diabetes isn’t just about looking at the GI value of foods. You also should focus on eating a balanced , healthy diet that you can stick with for life.

VERDICT OF ARTICLE’S AUTHOR ON GI DIETS

At last a diet that’s popular with the media, but still follows basic healthy eating guidelines. The diet generally contains plenty of fruits and vegetables, and recommends eating fewer sugary and refined carbohydrates. If you’re going to give the diet a go, remember to follow the general rules of healthy eating.

So that’s our look into the Glysaemic Index and diet. Not sure where we’re headed next, but I aways try to find something that will be helpful to you as you continue on your journey to health and fitness. We’re gearing up toward the weekend already. Hope you’re all having a fabulous week. I’d like to leave you with this.

Till next time, God bless.
