  • Explain the GI in simple terms: ranking system for carbohydrate-containing foods based on blood sugar impact.
  • Briefly discuss the GI scale (low, medium, high).
  • Mention factors affecting GI (ripeness, processing, etc.) but don’t delve too deep.

How Can the GI Help with Weight Management?

  • Explain how low-GI foods promote stable blood sugar levels, reducing cravings and overeating.

    • Focus on incorporating low-GI staples (list examples: lentils, beans, vegetables).
    • Pair high-GI carbs with protein or healthy fats to slow digestion (example: whole-wheat toast with avocado).
    • Fiber is your friend! Explain how fiber helps regulate blood sugar (mention whole grains, fruits with skin).
    • Be mindful of portion sizes, even with low-GI foods.
  • Sample Meal Plans:
    • Provide a sample low-GI breakfast, lunch, and dinner plan.
    • Focus on variety and highlight the use of low-GI options.

Beyond the GI: A Holistic Approach
