First things first, glycemic index (GI) is a measurement that ranks carbohydrate-containing food or drink by how much it raises blood sugar levels after it is consumed.
Low GI (less than 55); choose the food most often from this category. Low GI carbs are digested and released slowly for sustained energy.
Medium GI (between 56 and 69); choose less often from this category.
High GI (greater than 70); choose least often from this category. High GI carbs cause blood sugar levels to spike and then crash. Foods in this category can be swapped with food in low or medium category.
Consumption of high GI carbs can cause blood glucose spike and then crash, and you would feel tired, falling asleep and hungry. Consistently experiencing these glucose spikes would increase the risk of complications such as heart disease.
