The Low Glycemic Templates do all the figuring for you. Following these menus helps you follow a diet that contains low glycemic foods. Most of the foods contained in these menus have a glycemic index of around 50 or less. Following a diet full of lower glycemic foods can help keep your blood sugar level from falling too rapidly. Low glycemic foods do not cause your body to release as much insulin into your bloodstream and as a result are broken down over a longer period of time. The result is a longer, steadier release of energy, helping you to feel more alert and energetic through your day. By following these menus you will also be less likely to binge eat because your sugar levels are in balance.
