    insulin levels

    excuse my ignorance and i don't know if anyone is willing to answer this and i've tired reading about it but i cant seem to find much

    i hear everyone talking about how some foods adjust your insulin levles, such as GI carbs...

    Excellent info on nutrition



    The glycemic index is a ranking of carbohydrates based on their immediate effect on blood glucose (blood sugar) levels. It compares foods gram for gram of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates that breakdown quickly during digestion have the highest glycemic indexes. The blood glucose response is fast and high. Carbohydrates that break down slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the blood stream, have low glycemic indexes.

    hope this helps
