No glucose means NO energy and you could not function….. Miss using the GI to eliminate grains from your diet is just as foolish as ignoring the importance of glucose in your diet. The author admitted that TWO slices of bread is worse, not one.
The Snickers bar serving size is double of tge singke sluce of bread. Therefore, TWO slices of bread is similar to the Snickers for the last column value. Previous replies noted the snickers bar is a group of food types in itself as well. And another mentioned two slices of bread should have something in between them!
Whole wheat bread releases carbs at a slower rate than white bread. A proper diet is so simple: Every meal needs a balance of lean protien, good fats and good Carbs. Ironically the Subway sandwich diet is actually a representative example of a perfect balance and the correct ratio for a meal: Let me see the number of subjects, mean increase, etc…. This topic is so misunderstood by the masses and the biochemistry cherry picked to a point of view.
It really cracks me up. Have stopped eating bread, and trying to avoid all glutens. In 16 days I have lost 14 lbs. But more importantly, my blood sugar has dropped. Usually had readings from , now , , last night So, regardless of indexes, etc.
I am of Sicilian heritage and breads, pasta, bakery goods, have been a big part of my life—and downfall; obesity, diabetes, three heart attacks from atrial fib. I think the oatmeal is fine. For every multiple of the quantity of GL indicated you have to multiply the number so a whole bagel has a Glycaemic Load of and the GL of for a 30g serving is meaningless.
A full bagel weighs more like g. So a whole bagel has a whopping GL of So GI is a useful index with a caveat for fruits and veg.
GL is ok but more tricky for grains and bread. Some things like a Snickers bar has a high satisfaction ratio. I usually feel I have had enough halfway through the bar.
It is very unlikely to want more than a 60g bar. Home baked bread like I do is so tasty that my children just eat an entire fresh loaf within seconds.
No time for butter or to serve the stew. So usually I serve the stew first and bring the bread to the table after everyone starts on the stew!!
When bread is consumed with beef stew like in our family, the overall GL is drastically reduced. Our family has been on a high meat and low GI diet except for ice creams and cakes as afters!!
My blood stats have got better since I replaced vegetable oils with lard and beef dripping and drastically reduced the intake of wheat and rice. Having read all of these comments and the article and most of the secondary sources, both positive and negative, I have to say that whether or not the actual quote investigated is spot-on accurate or not, the principle behind it certainly appears to be sound.
Well, I for one, agree with the almost all of the glycemic index — eating almost entirely from the low level. I could not lose weight after chemo and a long stint of high-dose steroids and my lymphedema was getting worse.
I had gone vegan, because that matched my personal goals, but still lost nothing. Then I started eating by only choosing the foods from the low glycemic values and it was incredible how quickly the weight is coming off. I feel so much better and less in a fog. Yes, you get quick energy with high gi values but then it drops and you need more.
The other big change is that I am not craving food constantly, as high GI content does. It makes sense to eat foods as close to their natural form as possible, however there are a few natural ones that surprised me, such as pineapple, which has a higher GI value. I steer clear of restaurants and do all my cooking at home and in every other way, eating by the low glycemic values has given me back my life.
As for whole grain bread, I allow myself one slice per day. Sweetening, filling, and fancy toppings are now so common that plain doughnuts are now commonly labeled and sold as "old fashioned". There are also potato doughnuts sometimes referred to as spudnuts.
